How are you ever in a bad mood after stumbling onto the work of illustrator Helen Dardik? She was born in Odessa, currently lives in Canada, and is a wife and mother to three little girls. Her work is so fresh and cheerful. She has an adorable professional website called One Lucky Helen and runs a blog called Orange You Lucky. Cute characters and patterns. Definitely stop over and see her work. After the weekend I had of tornado warnings and rewarding, but painful landscaping, this made my Monday!
