Instagrammer of the week #025

Yas Imamura from Quill & Fox has long been one of my favourite designers. I’m not sure what it was exactly that drew me to her work, but it is so sweet and endearing. I have a few of her prints and I just love her illustrations. Not only is she super talented, she’s also super sweet too. Follow Yas on Instagram.

A tough choice, but it would be my General List notepad.

Do you have a treasured possession?

My husband’s diary he started when we first met. (I know–we’re cheesy!)

Finish this sentence “If I could do anything right now I would…

Be on a tropical beach, island hopping and eating food off of a banana leaf.
