Happy new year everyone!! I hope you had a wonderful holiday! My break was delightful. I imposed a 3 day ban on working on my computer and it was simply divine. So nice to get a break from being so digitally tethered. I am excited to see what 2012 holds. I think it's going to be a great year!!
Over the last few weeks, I've been working on a new Spoonflower collection that I hope to launch later this month. Color checks are complete and I have a few yards on order so I can get my pictures taken and get everything listed in the store. So excited for you to see them!! Swans. Geese. Chairs. Patterns. Very mod and very yummy! Can't wait!!
There's a 2nd collection that I've been tinkering with and wanted to see what you think. Since the donkeys are being printed by RK (and will be available later this year!), I wanted to introduce a new critter to the mix in my Etsy store. But first the story behind the design...
I live in an area that used to be sort of rural. Which means there are some lots in my neighborhood that used to be ranch land and are grandfathered into the zoning restrictions. There's a horse that I see nearly every day and across the street from my grocery store and the Home Depot, there's a plot of land that has 2 Llamas on it.
You should have heard me the first time I spied those Llamas! All alone in the car, I screamed "LOOK! Llamas!" And now, every single time I drive down that street, I gleefully shout 'LOOK! Llamas!" Don't care I'm alone or with company, I say hello to the llamas. They are ridiculously cute and make me happy every time I see them. So I was of course compelled to whip up a few patterns for my new llama friends. :) It takes a great deal of self control not to pull off the road and go introduce myself to the Llama's care takers however... Perhaps I should make a llama quilt and 'bribe' my way into their lives :)
Whatcha think??Should I go ahead and print up some Llama fabric (and the pillow panel on the bottom)? I can get them printed and listed within a month or so. Llamas anyone??
