Gingiber Is Relocating (AGAIN)

Gingiber Springdale Studio

We've had an exciting year at our downtown Springdale, AR studio. We put a ton of love into this little space. We put down new wood floors. We painted. We styled it & really tried to bring the Gingiber brand to life! And I loved this space and had great plans to expand my retail hours, host crafting events, and solidify my presence in our beautiful historic downtown.

However, a year later, we find ourselves with a great opportunity to relocate just down the street! Our new location is 117 W Emma Ave, right across from one of my favorite stores, Cellar Door Antiques. I'm so excited to make our new location feel like home.

I've been Pinning and dreaming about how to decorate it just right. But of course we are moving over Christmas break, which means the name of the game is "get from point A to point B as quickly as possible".

It is daunting, moving our location AGAIN. This is like the 7th location on 3 years. And I'm tired of moving. BUT I am hopeful that this location will have all the magic that we need to grow Gingiber to its full potential.

Say a prayer, friends, if you can. I'm feeling really overwhelmed with the challenges in the business from 2015. It was not the year I had hoped for. Still successful, but I feel like we've hit a growth wall, and I'm anxious to troubleshoot our "hiccups". Of course we need these pesky distractions, such as moving the studio, to be over and done with!

Goodbye Gingiber Studio

I want to focus on bringing our kids apparel line back to life! I want to draw the cutest animals to hang in your nursery. I want to be able to take on more licensing projects with partners that I adore (such as The Land of Nod or Tree and The Rock). And, I NEED for Gingiber to grow by leaps and bound. We are taking some HUGE risks in 2016 and I am praying that they pay off!

Here's to 2016. May the best truly be yet to come.


Styling a Room With Chairish

Hello! It's me, Stacie, blogging after a LONG hiatus. I'm here today to talk about one of my favorite topics, decorating! So I browsed the Accent Chair section of Chairish and found some inspiration.
When I am styling a room, I like to first find one great piece of furniture with a POP of color and pattern to ground the entire living space. The Linen Mid-Century Modern Chair from Chairish with an amazing green ornate pattern won my heart! I put together this mood board inspired by my favorite chair, mixing pattern, shape, and bright color to create an eclectic, yet balanced room plan that is sure to make anyone feel at home.

Pretty Prudent Home: Your Ultimate Guide To A Beautiful Family Home

Hello! I am so excited to talk about this amazing new book, "Pretty Prudent Home: Your Ultimate Guide to Creating a Beautiful Family Home", written by some of my favorite, smart & beautiful blogger friends, Jacinda Boneau & Jaime Morrison Curtis, the brains behind the blog Pretty Prudent. This book is filled with amazing home decor tips, 70+ craft projects, and all the ideas to make a beautiful, comfortable, and modern home environment. I've known Jacinda and Jaime online for years. They were one of the first blogs to feature my work, and I've been a blog sponsor for Pretty Prudent in the past. They are really savvy ladies, and I am so happy to see their hard work (and impeccable taste) come to life in this book.

Off the bat, I LOVE the cover (it is the illustrator in me that thinks this rocks)! I am so excited to try out some of their amazing projects, like "Tatoo-Inspired Hand Embroidery" (pg 118), "Simple & Stunning Living Succulent Wreath" (pg 127) & "Gold Leaf Vase" (pg 147).

Also if you look on page 175, you will see one of our Greyhound Illustrations featured as a suggested gift idea for hosts! Thanks ladies for including Gingiber in your awesome book!
I love seeing all of the fresh photography, pops of bold color & seeing some of my favorite blog posts from the Pretty Prudent Blog (like how to make Coffee Cake in a Cup on page 174)! This book is a must have for the have for anyone who enjoys decorating, DIY projects, or a general fun read! There are projects for every budget. I'm loving page 126 with "Ten Super-Low-Budget Decor Ideas", because it is a great go-to reference for how to pretty up any space!
Thanks so much, Pretty Prudent, for sharing your awesome book with me. I hope that this is the beginning of many more books to come from you!

Dexter Atticus Bloomfield

Hello! I wanted to introduce you (very late) to my son, Dexter Atticus Bloomfield. He was born on December 22nd, 2014 after a horribly uncomfortable pregnancy that ended with 3 weeks of bed rest. Boy, oh boy! What a crazy pregnancy it was! Now, I had fond memories of being pregnant with my daughters, Violet and Lucy. I can say with absolute certainty that I did NOT enjoy my pregnancy with Dexter. The 9 months of baking him included our family relocating back to Arkansas from Oklahoma. We moved the Gingiber studio 2 times. I was sick nonstop during the 3rd trimester. Life was nonstop. Somehow today, though, all I can think about is that I now have 3 incredible kids! Dexter is the perfect little person who has completed our family. And I wouldn't give up those 9 months carrying him for anything.

Dexter is the most loving little boy. Today he is 14 weeks old. I've gotten to know him very well, since I spend almost every waking moment with him. He smiles at me all the time. He is ticklish. Violet calls him my little koala bear because he is always on my shoulder. He was born with a thick head of dark hair and is the spitting image of his father. He is so gentle. His cry is still so small. I adore him.

It has been so hard to get back into the swing of things now that I have 3 children. I cannot begin to describe the struggle to stay relevant as an illustrator while taking a bit more time for my family. Everyday I wake up hoping to get my groove back. A kid is always sick, though. Dexter needs to be fed. Before I know it, the day is done, my kids are (reluctantly) in bed, and I sit contently on my bed zoning out while watching Netflix. Someday work will get easier. But for the moment, I'm trying my best to soak up time with my baby boy, Dexter.

Thanks for reading. I will try to write more frequently.
