Yep, more patterns! I bought my 14 month old daughter her first pair of “real” shoes yesterday. She has been walking since she was 11 months old (oh dear), but since it was during the winter she really didn’t need a pair of shoes. I also have to add that her feet are so fat, that she did not fit into any shoes. Especially the cute red Toms my aunt bought her when she was born. I finally gave in and found the cutest pair of mary jane tennis shoes for her to stomp around in. I put them on her and she already figured out how to unvelcro. I might have to get buckles next time!
Bows & Butterflies
I really have an obsession with pattern making. I’ve had fabrics on my mind for over a year now. I want to make some children’s accessories. I’ve been all talk, but this weekend I am finally going to order some fabric and see what I can whip up.
As you might know, I have an obsession with taking on-line classes. My most recent was, pattern making over at Nicole’s Classes. I can not say enough good things about this class! I have been pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to create seamless patterns. Finally – I get it and thanks to the amazing teacher, Alma. She was fabulous at explaining how she does it. Her tutorials were so helpful and I came away of finally getting a grasp at something I couldn’t figure out on my own. Thanks Nicole’s Classes for being such a great resource and for featuring me on on the blog!
Lilla Rogers E-Course
This might be a re-post if you used to follow my old blog – but I am counting down the days until Make Art That Sells – Lilla Roger’s E-Course starts. I am not only excited to be taking a class that is taught by someone in the industry that I absolutely admire, but the list of contributors and the illustrators taking the course are just as amazing! Talk about intimidation! June 3rd, you are less than a month away. I’m sharpening my pencils! Are you taking this course?
Welcome to my new space! So happy you could join me! I am really excited about my new website that was designed by little ol’ me! I have had my portfolio on a million different websites and designed by a few really really great people, but really there is nothing more satisfying that designing it yourself. I was very intimidated by wordpress and thought there is no way I could ever figure it out. But, really I just kept clicking around on all the different buttons and links and voila – I made myself this website. Okay, enough of that already.
I have been imagining this giant tote bag in my head to fill books in and tote up to the library. Hazel and I saddle up in her stroller and enjoy this mile long walk up to our neighborhood library once a week. Her stroller unfortunately does not hold the weight of all the books we end up checking out and when I saw the tote bags on Society6, I figured I would give it a try and design a fun bag for myself. Yep, you will see us walking down the street wearing a bag with my illustration on it. Is that silly?
Anyways, Society6 is offering up some free shipping until Sunday 4/28. Maybe you might be interested in your own library tote? Click here for the free shipping link. (thats free worldwide shipping)
