Pattern Design Pin-hop 2013

Welcome to the Pin-Hop June 2013!  I am so excited you joined in the fun!!  We are a group of over 50 designers participating in the first ever pattern pin-hop on Pinterest.  The concept and preparation for this pin hop was orchestrated by the talented Tina Olsson of FYllayta.  

My designs were inspired by the "Midnight Garden" concept board from Patternbanks A/W 2013/2014 trend .  I hope you enjoy browsing through my interpretation.  Please be sure to stop back and check out all the other designers on the Pin-Hop June 2013 Pinterest board.  You can also find many of the designers and their fantastic work on the Find New Designers Pinterest board.  

Midnight Garden Sketchbook Collection - Holly Helgeson Designs 2013

Also, please make sure to check out the beautiful designs from the very talented Femi Ford! Enjoy the Hop and Happy Pinning!

Last week I entered an iPhone Case Design Challenge for Uncommongoods.  They put a call out for designers to submit their artwork for a chance to win $500 plus 5% royalties.  Each designer could submit up to 5 designs to be considered in the contest.

Today I got word that my design "Vintage Telephones" has made it to the semi-finalist round!  WHOO HOO!!!  Now, I NEED YOUR HELP IN THE FORM OF VOTES.....PRETTY PLEASE!!!  The winner will be determined by the most number of votes.  Please click on this link to vote for my design.  I would be so grateful for your support!!  I am doing everything I can to follow my dream, and every step I take gets me a little closer.  Thank you so much for supporting my dream!!

Love to pin? Love pattern? Why not save the date and join the Pinhop event starting on the 15th June

If you say yes to either of those two questions then there is no excuse not to join in the Pinterest Pinhop starting on the 15th. A group of 40 or so talented SP designers will be presenting brand new designs via a special Pinhop board located on the Find New Designers Pinterest site-there will full collections presented by those designers own web sites or blogs but the main design you can pin to your own board.

The concept and preparation is by Tina Olsson of Fyllayta who has done a great job putting this together.

See you there I hope?
