Valerie McKeehan Profile Information

  • Hey friends! It’s been a little while since my last #fridayintroductions so I wanted to say hi and thank you for being here! 👋🏻 My company is @lilyandval and I love all things lettering + illustration + artsy + flowers + sentimental. Lately though, I’ve been adjusting to life as a new mom, slowing down, and enjoying maternity leave with my sweet little girl. ❤️
.
So let’s do something fun today to get to know each other...tell me:
➕The last movie you saw in the theater
➕The last book you read (or are currently reading)
➕One thing you purchased on @amazon prime day (or if you avoided it altogether!)
.
I’ll go first:
➕ Live action Aladdin (the night before I went into labor!)
➕The Good Neighbor- about the life and work of Mister Rogers
➕A blow up mattress (because we don’t have a guest room anymore!)
.
Your turn!👇🏻Happy Friday all!

  • Hey friends! I’m on the @lilyandval blog today sharing Vienna’s nursery! 😃It’s kind of an eclectic theme of vintage + flowers 🌸 + Paris 🇫🇷, but I really love this space and I’ve been excited to share it! Also sharing some sources that have been helpful to me in the nursery (like the waterproof changing liners that I immediately ordered two more packs of after she was born! 😆) There’s a link to the blog in my profile!

  • The result of a little time I had to do some iPad drawing the other day! It was nice to just draw for fun and see what came of it - of course it had to be flowers. 😆🙌🏻💐🌷🌸I never considered myself a great pattern designer and it’s something I’ve been wanting to work on. So here’s two versions I created from the original flowers! No purpose for these (yet) just some creative experiments! 😊

  • Sorry for the overload of baby photos, guys! But I just can’t help myself. 😆 And watching her sleep is just about my favorite thing to do these days. ❤️ I’ve been working hard to not let anxiety steal my joy in this season. I love this girl so much it hurts and the worry has overwhelmed me at times over these past weeks. There’s incredible joy nestled in between the worry, but it’s been a struggle for me. Anyone else relate? I’m just over a month into motherhood and I can’t say it enough- mamas, you are amazing. .

  • I know it was just the Fourth of July, but it hasn’t felt like Summer to me at all! And now Fall is showing up in stores and it has me really confused. 😂 But that’s life with a newborn I think! Oh and not knowing what day of the week it is! 🤷🏻‍♀️Trying to get myself in a Summer mood, I came across this process photo of the latest @lilyandval recipe for vanilla ice cream! 🍦 (Swipe to see the final!)

  • Happy one month birthday, Vienna! 🎉💕😭 I can’t believe it’s been a month, yet it feels much longer because it’s hard to remember what life was like before her. The quickest/longest month of my life if that’s possible! She is such a sweet, curious, happy girl giving us smiles and making the cutest dolphin sounds. She loves music and riding in her stroller. I love her old man hair, big blue eyes and kissing her a million times a day. ❤️

The monthly milestone cards are a digital download in the @lilyandval shop! 😊

  • Did some drawing today and that felt great! 😃✍🏻 This quote. ❤️ It’s become a bit of a mantra at @lilyandval - especially because of our Keepsake Kitchen Diary and everything it stands for, recording not just the recipes but the memories that make them precious. Anyone else nostalgic when it comes to food? 🙋🏻‍♀️🍽 I’ve lettered this quote so many times before in chalk, but I wanted a lighter version. .
P.S. Thanks to everyone for your patience as we’re currently sold out of Keepsake Kitchen Diaries! More are on their way- including a new version!! Eee! Excited to share about that soon.

  • Well, it took nearly a month 🙈 but I finally got Vienna’s footprints for her birth stat print and baby book! 👣 I can’t handle the cuteness- the toes on this girl! 🤣 The Baby Book is by the @theweekendtype and the birth stat print is in the @lilyandval shop! There are more styles to choose from for boys and gender neutral!

  • The first photo of all three of us since coming home from the hospital! Vienna wasn’t too interested in this idea, but we tried our best and I’ll take it! 🥰💕
