Zephyr "Art Deco" Fabric for Spoonflower

I am so excited to FINALLY get a design uploaded to Spoonflower.  It has been a dream of mine forever to design and print my own fabric!  And as luck would have it, this week the contest theme at Spoonflower is "Art Deco"!!!  Only my favorite design category of all time!!  I was actually going to skip it due to lack of time, but my wonderful husband pushed me into it!  Luckily, I have had this design sketched out since...well...FOREVER.  All I really had to do was scan it, put it into a repeat and color it.  I had a hard time picking between two different colorations, so my hubby Chris picked his favorite and that is what I submitted.  He even came up with the name which I totally LOVE!  Here are the two colorations I came up with.   I ended up submitting the 3 color design (no white).   I would love to know which one you like more.

Have you checked out Pinterest yet? must!

Okay, I am addicted!  No if's, and's or but's about it!  I imagine somewhere, someone will start a support group for Pinterest addicts.  Well baby, I won't be attending!  I am having way to much fun roaming all of the wonderfully fabulous boards of delicious recipes, creative crafts, breath-taking pictures of nature...and so on...and so on!  Anyway, I thought I would share a link to my boards as well.  I hope you enjoy looking through some of the things that inspire my life and my creative nature!  Happy Pinning Everyone!

A Little Valentine's Day Whimsy...

With Valentine's Day knocking on my door, I decided to put some of my creative energy into designing some sweet lil whimsical cards.  So, last night I stayed up until almost 3 a.m. drawing and doodling some fun little designs that I hope you will enjoy as much as I do.  I still have some minor adjustments to make, but these are pretty much done.  I will be posting these to my Etsy site within the next day, so please stop by my store and take a look around.  You might just find something for that special person in your life!

Becoming in Christ

Watch out 2012...Here I Come!!!

2011 was an AMAZING year of growth for me!  I set up my blog, created my artist page on Facebook, designed and FINISHED my "Mommy & Me" paper dolls, and created my Etsy page. Wow, that was a lot for me to accomplish while chasing after 3 kiddos!  I am thankful for the patience that my family has given me while I put in long hours making it all happen!  I am now looking ahead and setting goals for myself in 2012.  I have lots of ideas and look forward to sharing my journey.  Thank you so much to all of my wonderful family and friends that have encouraged and supported me along the way!  It warms my heart when people visit my blog or post on my art page!  I find such joy in designing and creating things that make people happy!  Please stop by and visit me from time to time to see what I am working on!  Check out the photo for a hint to what I have in the works.  Many blessings to all of you in 2012!
