Pretty Little Names


So I just wanted to show you some commission pieces Ive done over the past few months for differnt little girls rooms.

Don't you think this is such a lovely thought and gesture to create a one of a kind art piece for a child with their name on it.

This idea began when a treasured friend of mine asking me to do a piece for her friends baby girl -Nola's 1st birthday and then from there people have seen Nolas and asked me to do work for them!
I love that! 

Well enjoy these and let me know if you need a precious little gems name created! 

Love Elise Maree.

 For Nola.

For Ellie.

For Amelia.


Guys I forgot to tell you that a little while back I was asked (and OH SO honoured) for my work to be a part of the Rockit Holiday Media Preview with my work on display with Etsy!

Here are some photos of my work that was on display and GUESS WHAT- these prints are for sale now in my Etsy shop

They really are perfect for any sweet baby nursery or even a fun kids bedroom! 

Tell me ....
Who's your favourite? 
OR EVEN BETTER who would you like to see me bring to life?

Yummy Colouring


Most people dread Monday, however I have been looking forward to it all weekend because its meant I get to finally share with you my new little card line.

"Yummy Colouring"
One of the MOST exciting things about this "Yummy Colouring" card line is that they are in fact colouring in greeting cards!
YES-you did hear right!

You are the one who gets to be creative and personalise these cards for who ever you are giving these to OR who you give it to can get creative and let their inner child shine bright.

The cool thing is not only do coloured pencils work on these- but so does watercolour! 
(WHA! crazy right!?)

These are perfect for any occasion -birthdays, love notes, or just cause you appreciate someone and you can buy these from my Etsy store.

I hope you really enjoy these!
lots of Love 
Elise Maree.

New Card Line

Well Hello there, 
it feels like its been a while...

Maybe thats because I have been dreaming away and creating a (small to begin with) new collection of colouring in cards which tomorrow is the BIG day where I will launch them and show them to the world. ..

Now I know, you all are itching to see them so Ill give you some sneaky peaks at some of the behind the scene shots of me working with the wonderful Melissa Marques in my studio space to keep you happy until tomorrow.  

Now let me just say something about Melissa- Melissa was an absolute dream to work with and I couldn't have asked for a better creative to capture all that was  in my head. 
Make sure you do yourself a favour and check out her work. 

Enjoy Dear ones. 
Elise Maree

Ps. These will be for sale in my Etsy store tomorrow.

Valentines Day

With Valentines Day just around the corner all you love birds and honey bee's better start thinking of that perfect card for your darling.

  ~ side note though ~

Valentines day is not just subject to those who are head over heals in love- 
It's actually a day to celebrate every kind of love. 

I'll share a little something with you...

Valentines day and my relationships have never really 'coordinated', but there are 2 of the 26 Valentines days Ive experienced that are very precious and close to my heart-
One of which I will share with you...

I actually remember one Valentines day when I was maybe 10...

 My Dad bought home each of his girls (Mum, Mon and I) a gift.
He gave me and Mon a ring each, wished us a happy valentines day and told us that he loved us.

Now maybe that seems like just a nice gesture, but I think as a little girl seeing my Dad bring home his greatest love- my Mum a gift and then to receive a ring from him on the day that celebrated the truest of loves my heart exploded a little as I had been given a gift from the greatest man and the greatest love that I had ever known so far to that day. 

 It was honestly like the world had just been handed to me- I felt truly adored and cherished and I remember wearing that ring and beaming with knowing that this represented who I was loved by.

So with that little story- love can come in all kinds of forms, so change it up this year- Buy a card for someone who you love and adore that isn't the romantic, kissy kissy, kind of love. 

These cards can be bought here or a collection of paper good stores in Australia..
(Maybe someone will even send me one way over here in Canada!)

Love Elise Maree

Kids Party Host

Well hello to you!
I hope you are all well and that your eyes have been getting filled with all kinds of wonderful things.

Now, I have some very EXCITING news to share with you.
Some of you may have heard the old saying- "As one door closes, another door opens"?!

Well I have found this to be true!
 it seems as though I find myself standing before a new, BIG and very exciting door!

Yes,  The rumours are true- 
I, Elise Maree, am launching out as a KIDS PARTY HOST!

What does this mean I hear some of you say?..

Well, I am teaming up with a local kids cafe in Toronto -"Red fish, Blue Fish" and you can hire their studio space for me to host a craft party in or I can come to your home and host the birthday there for your little one and all their guests. 

I have a selection of already created craft parties like "Imaginary Friends", "Sweet Treats", "Frozen", "Pirates and Mermaids" or we can even collaborate and create a custom made party that will delight any young heart.

I am thrilled to be doing this, as I have had this up my sleeve for a while now.

Lets get chatting. 
Love Elise Maree.
