100 Days of Pillows (12-16)

This week of the 100 Days of Pillows project felt a little more challenging than the last, but I finished with 3 more designs I’m happy with and 2 that I absolutely love. Lesson learned: I favor patterns that have breathing space. But if they are fairly busy, including neutrals is required to give the […]

100 Days of Pillows (7-11)

11% complete with the 100 Days of Pillows project! It’s fun to see how, in most cases, one design naturally leads to the next. Colors used one day get repeated the next, or a floral print results in another floral print, or dots on one design lead to dots on the next. The concept for […]

100 Days of Pillows (2-6)

The first full week of pillow designs is complete! I confess that on some days I had no idea what I was going to make.

The process is not as straightforward as I had hoped and there are quite a few options to sort through. Coupled with the week-long vacation Chad & I just took, things […]

September

This has been a week of really trying to balance creativity with business tasks. And sometimes the scale tips in favor of business over creativity, because it must. I completed a custom jewelry order and finished a couple of simple art pieces, but a lot of my time went into researching manufacturers for custom pillows […]

That Moment When…

…you’ve put in the work and realize the “magic” is finally happening. 🙂 This week I hit on something really special: a combination of charcoal drawing, color and pattern. Prior to this I had never considered using charcoal in pattern form. Yet once I designed the first one and added color, I knew that it […]

Friendship

This morning I met a friend over coffee and a cinnamon roll. We’ve known each other for years, first having met by being in the same “community group” within our church. She is someone I can be real with. Someone with whom I can share my successes and struggles and ask tough questions and receive […]
