So, this is pretty cool...


Really, it is super cool. So here goes: You can now buy my fabric designs in pillows, napkins, placemats and kitchen towels to feather your nest! And it’s all thanks to Spoonflower.

   


Spoonflower, which prints and sells fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap in designs from independent and hobby designers like me, has opened a new online business called Roostery Home Decor. You can now purchase the home decor items I mentioned above in all the designs that are available on Spoonflower. I’ve pulled together a sampling of some of my designs, shown here, to give you a little taste.
If you have been through the Spoonflower site, you’ve seen just how much fabulousness there is available. The one issue has always been if you weren’t a sewer. But now thanks to Roostery, you can enjoy all those fabulous designs without having to worry about the sewing part. Of course, you can still buy fabric, wallpaper & gift wrap on Spoonflower, too; Roostery just offers finished product. 


 



Here’s how it works: find a pattern you love, decide which home decor items you want (there are previews, which is what I am showing here of some of my designs, so you can see approximately how the designs look on the various items), and place your order. The fabric is then printed and each item is then sewn by Roostery, right here in the USA. Then it ships to you. The items aren’t cheap, but when you consider you’re getting custom printing and sewing in a unique pattern that isn’t mass-produced, the prices aren’t unreasonable. 


I hope you’ll stop by and check it out ~ Roostery really is an awesome addition to the creative world. If you are interested, you can see more of my designs on Roostery here. To see my designs on Spoonflower, click here. Have a great day and I hope you enjoy looking around!

New designs...



I was fortunate enough to have the day off today, and feeling creative, I started work on some new designs. You can see I had a specific color palette in mind, though I didn’t realize it until after I looked at all the designs together. I was in a playful state of mind and these designs reflect that. I can’t wait to see how they print.
I also have some pretty cool news to share ~ more on that later.

Butterflies, lavender & summer...



With the month of July bringing day after day of sweltering heat (I don’t think we’ve had a day under 90 degrees and quite a few have been 100 or just below), I find myself searching for things that look  and feel cool. I find certain colors to be cooling and soothing, and lavender is one of them.
I designed all of these patterns a few years ago, but this collection is still my favorite, as collections go, anyway. (Of course, that could be because it’s the one true collection I’ve designed.) The main pattern ~ Butterfly Garden ~ always makes me think of warmer weather, but in a relaxing way. I have actually named this collection Spring, but I think it’s a wonderful collection for spring and summer ~ pretty, with lots of potential combinations, and colors that are cooling to the eye. To see more, click here.
Wishing all of you a lovely day...
