The Bee and The Fox is an online clothing boutique run by women who make super comfortable, vintage inspired t-shirts (among other things) for men and women, but I am particularly fond of their children’s clothing. I buy all my new parent friends this onesie for their little one. For the month of December they are offering free shipping and you can get a 10% promo code if you sign up for their newsletter.

Lisa Congdon is a Portland-based artist who has been one of my favorites for years after discovering her work on Instagram. I love the vibrant colors, geometric shapes and of course her beautiful messages of hope and resilience. She also teaches online classes on Creative Bug - her daily drawing class is on my wishlist.
