It's all new!

So… I can’t quite figure out how to import all my old blog posts to my new fancy Squarespace site, so I might just start fresh from here. I have updated the look of my website and designed a new logo, and so far am really happy with it all. I would love to know what you think!

This summer I have been enjoying having a month off from my day job and using the time to design some patterns and work on my brand. I have been taking a few online classes on pattern design, learning tips and tricks which have been so helpful in giving me a starting point for developing a body of work. I have been making patterns for fun for a couple of years but never even thought that I should be grouping them into collections, something I learned very quickly in the online classes!

I don’t really believe in new years resolutions but I do believe in having ambitions, so this year I plan on making lots and lots of patterns until I have a few collections that I am proud of and if someone wants to being them to life on real products that would be a dream come true.

So here are a few of the patterns I have conjured up of late. (If that sounds a bit Lord-of-the-Rings-like I have just finished watching the entire 3 movies - extended edition - for about the billionth time.) I love holidays!
