If you can’t go to the Tropics, let the Tropics come to you! I’ve entered my “Tiki Room” design in this week’s Spoonflower “Block Print-Inspired” Design Challenge! Link to the Voting Page HERE! Public voting closes next Tuesday Dec 19.
A bit about this design: my "Tiki Room" design isn't really new as I designed it several years ago but never knew what to do with it...until now! It was inspired by time spent living on the Big Island, Hawaii and by a made-in-Japan "funny face" tea set sourced at a thrift shop and given to me by my husband! I like giving my older designs that are just living on my hard-drive a new life with some "adjustments" and brand new colours!
According to the art of Floriography, every flower has its own meaning. Most of us know red roses mean romantic love, but what about others? This week's Spoonflower "Floriography" Design Challenge had me researching this, and the result is my new "Floriography" floral print!
According to my sources (ahem, Google) here are the meanings of the flowers I've included here:
-Daisies mean "Attachment"
-Bluebottles (or Bachelors Buttons or Cornflowers) mean "Riches"
-Pansies mean “Messenger of Love"
-Michalemas Daisies (or Asters) mean "Farewell".
I apologize for the late post, but Public Voting for this Challenge closed Dec 12. BUT you can SHOP this new design on Fabrics, Wallpaper and Home Decor in my Spoonflower Shop! I entered the first version on Dark Green in the Challenge, but I do love all the bright colours in the Yellow version too! Maybe one for Autumn and one for Summer?

When you think of a "serene" wallpaper design, what comes to mind? For me, it made me think of curving shapes, organic forms from nature, soft colours and neutrals, simplicity, rhythmic layouts. So with all these in mind, I designed my new "Stones" pattern design to enter in this week's Spoonflower "Serene Wallscapes" Design Challenge! Do you think this design would make your space more serene?!
You can vote at the Voting Page HERE and voting closes next Tuesday December 5.
