Hey! We’re Ellie + Lottie. Here you’ll find a mix of simple moments, a bit of creative chaos, and maybe (definitely?) a hint of coffee and/or paint stains.

Hey there! I’m Lottie, artist, designer, mum, recent Nova Scotian, and art teacher. I live in a tiny village on the Acadian Shores of Nova Scotia, Canada, close to the ocean. In between homeschooling our 2 boys, I paint and teach art lessons over at lottiemade.com. My husband and I also run Beam & Birch Workshop, a home goods & renovation business.

celebrate simple moments

Hi! I’m Ellie, editor, mum, email marketer, sewer, wife and gardening enthusiast. I live in Eswatini, Africa with my husband and our 3 boys. In my day-to-day I develop email marketing and am the editor for Grace Go Bloom magazine and get to speak to creative people about their passions.

Are you looking for assistance with your email marketing or copy writing? I’d love to chat and see how I can help!
