new spoonflower swatches have arrived!! its exciting/nerve racking opening up that little package!

the second in the nature walk series turned out a bit orangey than I imagined, so i've made a few adjustments and plan to proof the new version soon.

warning: i think its safe to say spoonflower is officially feeding my obsession with patterning. so be on the look out for new designs by becoming a fan on facebook where you will see them first!!

nature walking

hello blog, it's been far too long!
here are the latest designs i've been working up... a nature walk inspired series.
i must say this summer was hot, like super hot to the point of not being able to enjoy outside-ness. when i tried to escape it, that pesky heat followed me (it was 90 degrees in maine last week!!) since it's finally cooled down to a livable temperature i've been able to enjoy walking some trails and discovering new plants/shapes that inspire me.

i ordered a swatch of this design from spoonflower, and i'm overly anxious to see it! it got lost in the mail while i was away so i'm crossing my fingers it gets here this week!
