Ikea Hack / DIY Grasscloth Coffee Table

We’ve been searching for an ottoman / coffee table for our TV room forever after I got rid of our last coffee table in a fit of anger because I hated it so. (It was way too big for the space, and was driving me nuts) Aubrey, in a similar fit of frustration (because he missed having somewhere to rest his feet while watching TV) bought an Ikea Lack coffee table for $35. He assured me it was temporary. Although size wise it was perfect – I’ll give it that,  design wise it was killing me. It was like a black hole sucking any joy out of the room. I know, I’m being dramatic. But really. It wasn’t the look I was going for, but I understood the need for compromise. Continue Reading →

New at The Penny Paper Co.

A few new products have rolled out in the shop like these new pins  annnnd we've expanded into new awesome retailers! Now you can find our wares in hopefully a store near you, so you can save on shipping costs and support your local stores in your neighbourhood. If you have a store close to you that you think would be a fit - I'd LOVE to know so I can reach out and introduce the line. I'm grateful for all of the support, and I constantly knock on wood that I get to turn illustrations into "things".  The fancy flamingo pin is flying (no pun intended) out the door, and the Pigeon is Oscar's favourite pin (he helped me design it, as pigeons are his favourite bird) xo Linds

This tops off the collection of ready to hang art and pillows that you can find as well. Continue Reading →

Happy Monday. Spring is here and oh so lovely. Here are a few photos from over here. Two major projects I’m excited to announce this week have been keeping my brain busy and feeling so appreciative and also, had me looking at where I am right now thinking it’s SO strange. Had you told me 10 years ago that some of these projects would be what I was doing, I would have told you that you were bonkers. But you do these things, feel grateful for opportunities and just keep plugging away on the path. I’m excited to announce them so stay tuned! Ps., Here are some photos for now and some captions to give you some little windows into the world over here. Continue Reading →
