Monthly Summary - FEBRUARY

What a lovely month February was!

I created a handful of new surface patterns with the Valentine's Day theme.
I tried a new Chocolate Sandwich recipe that I found to be delicious and you can check in the Martha Steward website by clicking here.
I entered the Valentine's Type Card competition from Tigerprint.
After a camping weekend I came back re-energized with more ideas for floral patterns that I love so much, and floral greeting card designs.
I also started a new fresh and fun collection with flat colored silhouettes.

I want to give special thanks to Maggie from the Magatha-May Blog for loving and featuring one of my kitchen patterns.

Camping for the Weekend

Back to a new Monday with new inspirations for artwork!
Last weekend we went camping and spent almost two days away from the computer which felt like a month. Came back totally re-energized from the fresh air and the quiet sounds of nature.
Today I'm posting one of my nature inspired patterns and going back to work on my flower designs, so many ideas and so little time!
I hope you all had a great weekend.

I thought it would be nice to start the week with this portrait my daughter did of me on Valentine's Day. She described the striped dress with the pocket and the sun shining in the sky. I told her my favorite part were the toes!

I'll be posting more of my patterns later this week, meanwhile you can check some of my designs here.

Valentine's Type Competition Results

Tigerprint announced today the results of the Valentine's Type Competition. My design was selected as one of four runner up. Here I'm posting the design that was selected as a runner up, as well as the rest of the runner up and the winner design.
I enjoyed seeing the different approach that each designer has about a given theme.

World Market closing

I know we should start Monday with good news, but I'm sorry to announce that the World Market store located in my neighborhood is closing its doors. I'll miss strolling the store looking for a special rug, mirror or pillow with a beautiful pattern to compliment my house decor. Also, we'll be missing the wines we can't find at the grocery store.
