I'm loving spoonflower! The lovely little site where you can have your own fabric designs printed. Here is a swatch sampler of my Jungle Safari collection. I am going to make a whole nursery bedding set out of these prints, so check back. Have a great weekend!

Going through our family photos over the past few months, I only had one or two of me, and they were pretty much hideous. Wouldn't it be nice if someone said, "Oh look how cute mom is, let me go get my camera". Don't get me wrong, I do prefer being behind the camera instead of in front of it, it just would be nice if my efforts (of being cute) were appreciated once in a while. So I had my 4 year old take this picture of me. Not to shabby once a put a gaussian blur on the clutter behind me.
I hope your week is going well! And don't forget to wear green so your bum doesn't get pinched!

Foxy Loxy

I'm not sure what drives me to do the things I do.
An insanely scattered brain... an enormous amount of semi-sweet chocolate chip munching at midnight... perhaps I have a tiny alien inhabiting my inner ear.
Of course while having a million other things to do including much needed housework, I found it necessary to do these illustrations.
They weren't created for any particular reason, I just sketched them one day and thought they would be fun to digitally color.

I was happy with how they turned out, and Isaac loves them.
I am excited to have something that appeals to little boys in my shop
which is a bit overrun with girly things. They are going to be available in the
shop this week in a 5"x7" size.
Let me know what you think of Foxy Loxy, Cocky Locky and Goosey Loosey.

Purdy Birdie


I have been glued to my computer for so long working on various designs/projects, that I feel like I haven't made much time for actual sewing. I've had some clothing designs swimming around in my head, so I decided to pull them out of their
soggy puddle (my brain), and make them. Here is the 1st prototype of my apron top using my original "Sweet Birds" fabric.
My model is very pleased that she has the perk of getting to keep this one!

So bright and cheery, it makes me happy.
