young patterns...

I made these patterns a little while ago for the American Girl book (Praline's Book of Friendship Questions). They serve as backgrounds on it's girlie pages.

work in progress...

My new office - it's full of light and it's easy to be in. I like designing in this space. The other wall still needs a little something... maybe a few posters or a display shelf (I'll show you when it's all done). Everything is a work in progress...

the big 9...

Well, it's that time again - time to invite little friends to Lola's little birthday party. It feels a bit different this time, because it's the big 9! I remember being nine very clearly... and that's why I wanted to make the card a bit more sophisticated. Not that 'the childhood is over'... but a more mature times are ahead:)
Butterflies are on my mind again. I think it's my call for the summer: 'Please come soon, summer... and bring back the colours."

While I hide inside (like a potted plant) as much as I can during the winter, the cute little members of my family are enjoying the season for what it is.

a to z...

Mudpuppy is one of my favourite clients. My girls love it when I get samples of the finished product I had part in creating... and these wooden patterned magnetic letters were no exception. Hours of fun... the fridge finally had it's day:)

first pattern of 2011...

Now that the celebrations are over... (and the last of champagne has evaporated) - I'm ready to start looking forward to something new! Something warm. Something bright... like late spring and all of summer:)
Here's my 'wishful thinking' pattern. First pattern for the 2011. It's going to be a colourful year!
