Chairs Galore

It seems that I see chairs everywhere now. I guess they've been always around, I'm just aware of them now. I saw at Design Sponge this picture of clothbound classic books from Penguin and of course I noticed the cover with the chair drawing design.
I also posted for sale on Zazzle these bags with one of my chair designs.

Chair Image Trend

I love this West Elm shopping bag designs, specially the one with the big chair.

Somehow it reminds me of the chair prints I offer for sale at Etsy.

I also noticed the stamp on this beautiful stationary from Oh Joy! that features a chair. I feel that I want to explore more this trend.

I Heart Etsy - Matryoshka

Whether you call it Matryoshka, Babushka, Nesting Doll or Russian Doll, this adorable character is a favorite. I grouped a few of the choices you can find on Etsy. Also, it reminded me of a surface pattern I did a while ago with this theme. Click on the links below to find these items on Etsy.

Berries and Fairies Design Studio



My friend and graphic designer Laura Guerrero is starting Berries&Fairies Design Studio where she offers personalized cards. There you can find invitations, birth announcements, save-the-date, thank you cards and a bunch of other choices. You can pick from one of her already made templates or request a specific design just for you! Just email her your pictures and she'll do wonders.
While her website is being finished, she has been invited as a guest in Hyena Cart where she gets to feature her designs for a week.

When you visit the link scroll down just a bit and there you'll find it.

I Heart Etsy - Back to School

(click on image to see larger)

I've always been a fan of Etsy, but now that I have a shop open in the website, I've been taking more time to browse trough what other sellers offer. I'm putting together every week a set of things I find on Etsy that I think are worth mentioning. This week I grouped a few items that match the Back to School theme, so here it goes.

Christmas Cards


We are all still enjoying the summer and the last week before school starts for us here in Miami, but the requests for Christmas designs are starting to come. Here is one of the counter cards I've been working on.
I'm also working in adding more prints to my new Etsy shop, but that will take another couple of weeks to complete.

Etsy Store Open!


My Etsy shop is finally ready and open. How exciting! Take a moment to browse through the artwork available for purchase. I started with a small group of prints but I keep working to add more designs to my collection. Hope you find something to heart in my shop.

Eye Candy


Not only I had a great weekend with my family but I received on the mail the September issue of the ELLE Decor Magazine and the 2010 IKEA Catalog. I had a nice coffee time this morning going through the catalog pages. I think I'll be a photo stylist in my next life.

I'm almost ready to launch my Etsy store. I'm also working on a new Valentine's Surface Pattern and slowly redesigning my website. I'll keep you posted!

New Logo, New Website, New Store


I've been busy getting ready to open my Etsy store, I'm so excited about it!
I'm also in the middle of redesigning my website and of course, I keep trying to find time to finish couple of surface patterns I have in mind, but I can only do so much at once, right?
Before the complete redesign of my website, I created the logo you see here to give it a personalized touch. Next step would be to redesign this blog banner to include de logo in it.
