Surtex!

I'm just back from my first time showing at Surtex, where I shared a booth with my friend & fellow designer Shannon Hays. It was a great experience & so much fun!

When things settle down, I'll have a chance to write a recap with any helpful tips I can think of, but for now I just wanted to share some pictures from the show.


Here we are on set-up day, relieved to have our banners up. 
Shannon came up with the idea for the house on the back wall, 
and our "Come Out & Play" theme, which I loved.



My half of the booth.



For my side panels, I created a scene showing a bunch of happy friends heading to. . .



. . . a baby bear's birthday picnic!



A close-up of my shelf, where I displayed some greeting cards, 
little wrapped presents, and a pillow & cute baby hat that my daughter 
sewed with my fabric from Spoonflower. She did a great job!



My portfolio book, postcards, and other promo materials, ready to go.


It was a great few days. Now time to get back to work!

Winter Trends Workshop



I'm so excited for Design Garden's Winter Trends Workshop to begin today.
I've participated in several of these workshops, and have loved every one. They are always inspiring & a great value.

Can't wait to get in the Christmas spirit by making some new holiday designs this week!

I just love springtime, and I loved making this sweet new set for my Etsy shop.
