Balancing Motherhood and Creativity  | Irvine Moms


My name is Cecilia Sunshine. I am a wife and mother of 5-year-old twins, now expecting another baby due in May. 


I am the owner of Two Plus Two Prints on Etsy. I make printable wall art, mostly focusing on nurseries and children’s bedroom decor. When my children were born I put my creativity aside. Having two little humans in my life consumed most of my time. When they were ready to start preschool, I was ready to focus on being creative again. I went back to a print I had created to decorate their nursery, from there I started coming up with new illustrations and quotes. 





I find inspiration from the world around me, my family and my children. I am usually attracted to color but also enjoy just working with a limited pallet or monochrome. I like a clean modern look and design pieces that can make the walls in your home a little happier. I decided to create instant download printable art because it fits my busy mom lifestyle. I can be creative on my own time instead of having to worry about printing and shipping deadlines. It is also very convenient for my clients, who are usually busy moms too. They can purchase something they like and have it in their inbox right away. 





Balancing family and work is not always easy. I try to work mostly in the mornings when my twins are in school. I know everything will change when the little one arrives in May but I will have to adapt to the new normal. I feel like this journey is just starting… I have so many ideas for new designs and products and I am really excited about the future!
