Dear Chicago House,
Buying and selling houses is such hard work. Just four weeks after the sale of the sibling house and after many, many hours trawling through realtor.com, I was faced with oodles of paperwork and administrative tasks to purchase another abode. We closed on the property last week and the furniture which got hurriedly put into storage is being delivered today. Phew!
So I have had hardly any time for “creative therapy” but I seem to reap the rewards of a break, as when I do get going again, ideas just fly out of me.
I have been dabbling with the idea of designing fabrics for a while now and thought I’d give SpoonFlower a whirl. It is a website where you can upload your own designs and have them printed as fabric, wallpaper, decals and even gift wrap.
So I have been working on a collection I’ve called “Contemporary Circles”
Here is one of my designs turned into gift wrap
and another as wallpaper
I want to come up with some better names than just green circles or random circles …I and happy with the naming of Frog Spawn and hard boiled eggs though!
Through my Spoon Flower account I get a store front
I’d love to know what you think or if you have any ideas for fabric names.
