Designs for the Day

Working like crazy on my online shop. I did a companion pack to my Wildflower fabrics. These are small, complimentary prints, dots, stripes, plaids and almost solid prints as suggested by Barbara in my last post. 

Getting closer to publishing day. I just need to work out the details on the file delivery system and then on to beta testing. I need more hours in the day.

If you have any more suggestions, I'm all ears. I'm thinking I might do a batch of frames next. Any ideas?

Thanks so much,

  1. someone sent me a link to your site today and I love it. I like the idea of frames as they make great gifts etc...I also do embroidery and other crafts but don't do crossstitch. I would love border stuff for both clothing and things like picture frames etc... Also I saw an address (po box) for you on the Toymakers site. I live in that same zip code so it's really a small world I guess.
    Anyway, I love your site and your stuff and will be interested in seeing more.

  2. I loved the Arts and Crafts designs you did last year. I'm a big fan of anything early 20th century. Of course, I also love your flowers. Glad things are moving along.

  3. Did I read correctly? Fabrics??? It is so difficult to find fabric with flowers small enough to use in 1:12 scale dollhouses. And even more difficult (impossible?) for 1:24 scale. Can't wait to see what you'll have.

  4. They are actually paper jpeg files. You could possibly reduce them to teeny tiny and use teeshirt transfers to make your own fabric. I use it on wood all the time.

  5. Exciting stuff, Maz! I'm sure it's going to be brilliant!

  6. Oooh! These designs/patterns are so beautiful! The patterns and colours go well together, too! I took a look in your shop to see your scrapbooking goodies. You rock! LOL I adore the flowers! Everything in the shop is just wonderful! The designs kinda reflect the art in your books and toys and such. Beautiful!

    I dabble around some with Digi-Scrapping. I've been a part of that community for several years. Frames would be a grand addition. Different 'fasteners' are neat. You can attach two frames with a funky hinge, or a koala bear, or some other unlikely item. Another item might be taped, stapled, pinned or sewn, with another. Layers are big, too.

    The folk-ish whimsey that sets your designs apart is an art form I just love! I do whimsey alot when I do my own art, which in no way compares to yours! But, I enjoy it! I've been learning Photoshop and trying my art in digital.

    I really like reading your posts and getting a glimpse in to your thought processes as your designs unfold. Thank you for that. You are very inspiring!
