Today I wanted to share with you something that I’m really personally excited about. Those of you who have been following my blog and my work for awhile know that I love to create watercolor artwork. It is how I create all of my fabric lines: I draw and paint everything by hand, scan it, and then I get to “play” in Photoshop, laying out different repeat patterns and colorways. It’s so much fun- I love every step of the process!

And while it’s really wonderful seeing my artwork on fabric, I also love paper (always have, even when I was a child!) So…. what I’ve done, and I had so much fun with it, is that I’ve laid out some of my artwork into note card designs.

Wouldn’t these make a great gift for your quilty-sewing-artsy-craftsy friends???

 

I painted these pears a couple of years ago- and they remain among some of my favorite artwork ever. I couldn’t wait to get them on paper products:

And now, here is the really exciting part (well, I think so anyway, but I’m kind of a paper-nerd): You can also have many of my designs personalized! What a fabulous and thoughtful gift they will make!

I designed these especially for my daughter- some with her first name for personal use, and some with her “teacher” name for use in her classroom.

(Oh- and did you notice that they are bundled with a wrapper which can double as a “gift tag”?)

If you are shopping for teens, tweens, and young adults- feathers are really hot right now, so you may want to pick up some of these for the holidays (available with or without personalization. And by the way, personalization is always in style):
