Easy 30-Day Returns

100 Days of Pillows (56-62)

Getting warmer. I looked back at my first 50 pillow designs and realized it took about 25 designs before things started to feel really comfortable. So if history repeats itself, given my little break at Day 50, Days 75-76 should be hopping! But, hopefully it won’t take as long this time. 😉 This ocean themed […]

100 Days of Pillows (42-48)

After the Thanksgiving break I started up again with Christmas designs. It’s funny, working with holiday motifs isn’t something I can force myself to do (I’ve tried). But when the mood hits, it stays awhile. Whimsical reindeer silhouettes using the same pink in the poinsettia pattern from Day 40. The tiny houses from Day 31, […]

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 […]

Analysis Paralysis

Analysis paralysis: I’m trying hard not to fall victim to it. 😉 I’m still working with manufacturers for my first batch of throw pillows. 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 […]

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 […]

Pattern Design

A few new patterns have been made this week, including this bright and colorful watermelon pattern. It was inspired by a group theme challenge called “summer fruit”. And nothing says “summer fruit” more than watermelon! I’m really starting to gravitate toward gouache paint…of the digital kind, that is. It has a beautiful hand-painted appearance and […]

More than Mortals

Yesterday as I thought about the art I would create for the day, the lyrics from a song kept floating through my mind: “More than mortals, we are royals, we are Yours” (from the North Point InsideOut EP ‘Nothing Ordinary’). The idea of us being royalty, princes and princesses, almost sounds too good to be […]
