This week's Spoonflower Design Challenge is "Miniature Dollhouse Wallpaper" and I planned to enter my "Daisy May" design, either in the original "Dark Blue" or "Light Gray" version in a cute Tiny Scale, but I wasn't sure which. But then I thought, well, neither just didn't seem very Dollhouse-y to me, so I tried it in a Turquoise version, hmmm, better (see below for all these colour options!)...But I thought it still needed more Dollhouse-iness! So then I tried it out in Pink and Lavender Purple. Now THAT says Dollhouse-y to me, so I entered it!
Public voting for this Spoonflower Design Challenge opened on Thursday April 13 and closes next Tuesday April 18! You can link to the Voting Page HERE!

My Entry for This Week's Spoonflower "Cross Stitch" Design Challenge: "Crazy Quilt"
My son said this pattern design looks like a bunch of origami paper! But actually, the intent was to create a faux crazy quilt, so that's what this one is called..."Crazy Quilt"! If you look closely, you'll see woven and printed textile "swatches", some with "embroidery", including some "cross stitches"! So I've entered this one in this week's Spoonflower "Cross Stitch" Design Challenge! Public voting for this Challenge opens tomorrow Thursday January 5! You can vote at the Voting Page HERE (and I would love your vote for this one)!
BTW: I did the original motifs for this design as part of the Doodle-A-Day challenge offered by Rhianna Wurman of Ello Lovey in partnership with Spoonflower! This January-long challenge is on now. Find out more about the Doodle-A-Day challenge and how to join in at the Spoonflower Blog HERE! See below for my original doodle! And if you're on TikTok, be sure to check out Spoonflower's TikTok in January daily for some quick inspiring Doodle-A-Day videos based on each of the challenge prompts. I'll be sharing on Day 3: Fabric and Day 16: Gardening!
AND of course, I had to try it out in another completely different colourway! See below for the Orange Yellow Green colourway! Which colour palette do you like best?!
The "Doodle-A-Day" Design Challenge from Spoonflower and Ello Lovey is Happening All Month January 2023! Join Me on Days 3 and 16!
One of the things I like to do is to set aside time to just freely sketch and doodle because it helps me work out motifs and come up with brand new ideas. If you want to up your doodling game, follow along with the 4th Annual Doodle-A-Day Challenge, a month-long challenge first created by Rhianna Wurman of Ello Lovey and now in partnership with Spoonflower, to draw one doodle every day in January based on given prompts. This year’s theme is “Making”. Check out all the Info/Rules and Prompts at this Blog Post, follow along and doodle, and share what you create on Instagram! There are fun prizes for participating too!
To make it even more fun, be sure to check out Spoonflower’s TikTok where they will be posting artist videos daily for each design prompt. JOIN ME on Day 3: Fabric and Day 16: Gardening for my quick doodling videos!

Spoonflower's Craft Friday is a FREE online event happening on Black Friday (Nov 25) with the goal of offering a fun, crafty, creative alternative to the madness of one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Through a series of short-and-sweet video tutorials offered throughout the day and featuring varied creative projects taught by talented artists/makers, Spoonflower hopes to encourage families and friends to craft and make together, learn new skills, and possibly even create something to gift to loved ones during the holiday season.
