Over the Christmas week, Spoonflower held a contest for a snowflake design. I wanted my design to reflect an outdoor scene, so I incorporated cardinals, pine cones, pine branches and snowflakes together into a repeat. Instead of typical blue tones used in many snowflake patterns, I colored my design with a deep red. Click on the link to see the entry I submitted. The image below is a slightly more airy version of my entry.
Another recent contest from Spoonflower... "One Yard Wonders from Under the Sea"...was a fun challenge for me. The contestants had to design a print for a kid's shirt. I had to download the pattern for the Riviera Tee, and upload it to Spoonflower with my design on it. I designed a girly theme of graphic fish and bubbles. My daughter Ruby helped me pick out the colors...some of her favorite. I named my design "One Fish, Two Fish, Bubbles & Blue Fish". The name had a good ring to it...plus it fit the design well....could have possibly been inspired by Dr. Suess too. ;)

I am sorry...I have really gotten behind on my blog posts! I was so busy this holiday season and completely neglected my blog. Well, I am trying to make up for lost time now and get back into the swing of things. So, here is a design I did a couple of weeks back for the Spoonflower "Sweets" contest. I really enjoyed this contest, and the design I created and named Penny Candy reminds me so much of my childhood. I fondly remember walking down to the local store with my siblings....money just burning a hole in our pockets....ready to buy and consume sweet treats!
