Sleepy Sundays: Garden Window

Some of the gardens I’ve had the pleasure of visiting throughout my lifetime were scattered with fruit. This design and tile were inspired by one of my favorites.

Have a beautiful Sunday!

 

Sleepy Sundays: Nightshow

This Sunday as we crept back into our old timeslot,
I decided it best to share two designs with you this weekend instead of just one.
There’s good reason behind it, as I am working on a summer collection.

Hope you are all having a relaxing weekend. From our hearts to yours.

Have a bright and beautiful Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Misty Morning Daydreams

If I gave you a peek into my folder right now, you’d see lots of designs like this one. I’ve been working a lot on greeting card designs again lately. This one is the first concept in a set of florals.

It’s inspired by the rainy season in my zone lately and some strange dreams.

What’s your inspiration lately? Any plans when the seasons change?

Have a relaxing Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Windy Nights

This weekend while I made a new folder for a project that’s closing and another for upcoming holiday greetings and other things. We had a little November night wind storm. Shortly after it began to rain. With the quiet in the house and the pitter-patter outside, it was the perfect conditions to work in, and some of it inspired this new addition.

Are you in planning mode yet for the new year? Do tell. You know I love a good coffee chat. 🙂

Sleepy Sundays: Wind Trips

Patterns like this one are always a blast for me to design because I’ll collage several different designs into one. This one is made up of two different patterns of fall foliage, one that I shrunk down into tiny little golden pearl-textured dots. I’ve been working on designs like these through October, and they will likely continue through November if time allows.

This weekend’s was inspired by the winds that hit here about Friday that are signs of an upcoming storm in our area.

What colors have you seen floating through the sky lately? Do you like multi-layered designs for a living room? How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?

Have a breezy Sunday!
