Customer Project!

The other day, customer Leanne shared a photo of a project made with my design ‘Mod Floral Gold’ and allowed me to further share it myself. Needless to say, her photo made my day! The design comes in many colourways and is part of my Nordic Picnic collection. Thank you, Leanne!

These are some prints included in my Nordic Picnic collection:

First Day of School

It is the time of year when many children are approaching school, so when Spoonflower held its “What’s in your bag” contest, I was inspired by the German tradition of giving small gifts to first graders on their first day of school. These are presented in decorative cardboard cones and taken to school that day. The gifts are meant to make this first-school-day-day-ever a bit less anxiety-inducing. Many parents craft their own school cones for their children. The cardboard base can be wrapped in fabric or paper (such as gift wrap, hint!). Here is an example of a mid-1980s school boy taken from Wikipedia:

I luckily placed in the top 10 for this contest, so here at the fabric images provided by Spoonflower. Thank you so much to anyone who cast their vote for my “First Day of School”! :)  It is now available as fabric, gift wrap and even wallpaper!

Camouflage Llama Family / Free shipping on Spoonflower

Last week’s contest theme at Spoonflower was llamas, for which I drew a design inspired by the habitats llamas are commonly found in. When reading about the Andes, I was drawn to the high-altitude Polylepis forests and woodlands with their beautiful shrubs and trees (and flowering cacti are found there as well).

Since my llamas made the top 10, here are photos of the printed fabric, courtesy of Spoonflower. Many thanks to anyone who voted for my design. :) It is now available on various fabrics, wallpaper and gift wrap.

PS: Today, July 13, Spoonflower offers free international shipping for 24 hours (until July 14, 9am Eastern Standard Time).

Miami Beach Lemonade Stand

For Spoonflower’s recent lemonade contest, I drew a design inspired by the subtropical feel of Southern Florida. I wanted it to feature palm trees, lemon trees (and blossoms), parrots, a lemonade cart roof (like an awning), bottles, pitchers, glasses and of course lemons and raspberries. Since the design made the top 10 this week, I can share fabric images here. Many thanks to anyone who voted for my design! It is now available for sale on various types of fabrics, gift wrap and wallpaper.
