Because it is -25 degrees outside...

 with a windchill of -50, and my car won't start, and I don't want to freeze my face off, and I am still in my PJ's, and I LOVE to design pretty patterns.  

I have been in full on Christmas mode lately and have had no time to draw or design.  So, I decided to take some time today...after making gingerbread houses with the sit down and get my design mojo on. My son Gabe even named this collection for me.  I think he picked the perfect name!  Hope this collection brings you a bit of warmth on this wintry day.  

I would also like to thank all of my wonderful followers for their support this year!  It is truly my passion to design beautiful patterns that will bring a smile to people everywhere!  May the joy and peace of Christmas surround you and your family!

Merry Christmas!!

Christmas Star

Introducing my newest collection "Christmas Star". This collection of patterns was inspired by the lovely poinsettia flower.  I decided to use a pretty traditional Christmas palette to compliment this grouping of patterns.  The large Poinsettia pattern specifically reminds me of family Christmas gatherings spent at my grandparents house as a child.  I really love bringing a piece of my childhood into my designs.  Hope you love it!

In the year 2017...

Recently, I have seen so many beautiful calendars that are coming out for 2017.  That inspired me to look through my portfolio and create a calendar of my own.  Instead of focusing on one collection of patterns for the entire year, I decided to use designs that best fit each month. I really like the way it turned out, and I hope you do too!

Lounge Lizard on Lampshades = LOVE

Having some fun tonight mocking up these FAB retro lampshades.  I just adore vintage lampshades, so just had to see what my Lounge Lizard collection would look like mocked up.  I LOVE THEM!!!  I would LOVE any one of these...or my home!!  How about you?  Do you have a favorite?  It would really be difficult for me to choose just one.  :)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I am so EXCITED to introduce my second collection with Benartex!  This is Merry Little Christmas!  I think I am FINALLY in the Christmas mood!  You can view the entire collection HERE.  I am so thrilled with how the collection turned out and I hope you love it too!

Without Further Ado...I Introduce Carmela

Carmela has bold blooms and dainty flowers in a gorgeous autumn palette.  I was inspired by the lovely fall colors and harvest sky.  This collection seems perfect to set the mood for a cozy fall evening cuddled up in bed.
