Wellen Women

Last summer I backed my first Kickstarter with this amazing ocean inspired women’s brand, Wellen Women. After the Kickstarter was complete, I received one of their perfect pocket tees. And by perfect I mean, the perfect boxy, soft, everyday tee. It’s one of those that, as soon as it’s clean again, it’s the first thing I wear.

So, I’m excited to share that I’ve teamed up with Wellen Women to give you an exclusive 15% off coupon code! Treat yourself to one of their tees or the beautiful striped sweatshirt!

Use the code ‘evaLOVESwellen’ when you check out, to receive your 15% off coupon.


Shop Now!

The shop is officially open! Get your hands on something!

A few years ago I made some artwork and uploaded them to my Society6 shop, as a fun side project. Over time I’ve added a few other things and have honestly, been blow away by YOUR support. From day one, I’ve wanted to open my own shop, having something that was really an extension of me! Society6 gives you this option, without having to deal with all the extras. But, since having Mabel, I’ve started painting again, and I thought now would be a perfect time to launch my very own shop. If you follow along on Instagram, you probably noticed that I’m constantly inspired by the ocean, climate, and nature of living at the beach. So, it’s no surprise that that’s where I drew my inspiration for the shop.

Take a look and let me know your favorites!



Tomorrow (Tuesday) marks the opening of my new shop! I’ve been giving glimpses into my process and some of the artwork that will be for sale on Instagram. Take a peek: #EBDshop

With this launch, I’ll only be selling originals, I plan on doing prints (and other fun goodies) in the future, so for now, snag one before they’re gone! And, to whoever makes the first purchase, I may throw in an extra treat! Don’t miss out!

And! Make sure to follow along on Instagram (@evablack_), there may be a giveaway happening this week too!

The launch is happening tomorrow, Tuesday at 10 AM PST. See you then!


Merry Merry

Christmas is just around the corner! As a little gift to you, I’m sharing a free desktop + phone wallpaper download! This year has been very quite around here, but I’m so thankful for everything that has happened over the past year. Less work + time for blogging then previous years, but being a Mom has been SO amazing. But, that hasn’t stopped me from making time for creating!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas + New Years! I’m so grateful to each and every one of you. Now go download* the wallpapers + get in the Holiday mood!

Mabel’s Birth Announcement

Here’s a look at Mabel’s birth announcement! It took me a while to get these out so they doubled as ‘Thank-You’s’ on the backside. I can’t believe these photos where taken when she was just 2 weeks old! Time has FLOWN by. They were shot by the amazing Kayla Adams. I’m so thankful that she took these for us, they’re perfect. This photo in particular worked so perfectly with what I had in mind for the announcement.


Outdoor Living

With our new place, we finally have a little space outside. This was something we’d always been craving. Right now, we’ve got a table + chairs (which we frequent at meal times). In fact, my old desk has now been converted to a table outside. Instead of cutting it down to fit in our new place, we opted to leave it as-is and use it outside. Thankfully, due to California’s laid back weather + the use of a tarp, I think it should work just fine. I went ahead and bought these chairs from Ikea. We decided they’d would be a good option with the salty, moist, sea air. I originally loved the White Overstock Tabouret chairs, but being metal, they’d probably rust.

We have a little space left, and we’d love to fill it with a couple lounge chairs. I’ve been on the hunt. Here are a few options I’ve found! I’m hesitant on the Ikea chair, because I’m not sure how comfy it looks?? Anyone try those out?

Threshold Faux Wood Adirondack Chair / White High Back Lounge Chair / Huron Small Lounge / Brommo Chaise Lounge 

Wire Side Table / Martini Side Table / Bubble Ceramic Side Table

We’re also planning on building a little container vegetable garden, which I’ll share on later. We don’t know much about gardening but we’re both pretty excited to give it a try. Any gardening tips?

Find the perfect chairs, string our cafe lights, build a garden + we’ll never leave outside!
