2015 so Far

I know I’ve been very quiet on the Blogger front these last few months but on the design front I’ve been a busy little bee on Society 6 and…. thanks to family and friends have sold a few items.
The mugs below became teacher gifts bought by my Aussie friends Sam and Michelle living in Texas for the next 3 years. I miss them greatly and am counting the sleeps till they return. The mugs were very well received and a great gift idea (hint hint).

I love the challenge of coming up with a design that looks good on all products…some more successful than others. I normally start with the cushion version then adapt the image for each product if I can. I find the homewares are where my designs fit best but the T-shirts are really not my bag. It’s always good to know your strengths and be realistic about your weaknesses.

Bee-ing Thankful

Thank-You

I really feel like I am one of the luckiest people around.
I am blessed with the most generous, kind and thoughtful family and friends.
If I sent them a card EVERY time they were so wonderful to my family and I, whole forests would be lost….Decimation by Hallmark!
I’ve decided to create 2 card designs to try to make my “Thank You” just a little more personal and that way I can email instead of post…maybe with a small tagline…”No trees were harmed in the sending of this Thank You“. .

Still Bumbling Along

I had coffee with my lovely friend Gillian this morning. She is off to live in Perth with her family in the next month, much to our little community’s dismay.

This got my brain ticking.

I decided to have a go at adding to my growing card collection and create a farewell card idea.

This is what I came up with.
