Come see all the prints Wakefield will be showing at Booth C5!
Thank You For Your Votes! My "Sayulita" Design Ranked #20 in the Spoonflower "Jewel-Tone 70s" Design Challenge!
This is a bit delayed since I realize the Spoonflower "Jewel-Tone 70s" Design Challenge ended last week, but I just wanted to say thanks to all who voted in that challenge! My design came in at #20 (out of 617), so just really, thanks again!
And because it did well in the challenge, it is now immediately available to purchase in my Spoonflower Shop (link to this design here!)
And now for something completely different...My entry for this week's Spoonflower "Pop Art Citrus" Design Challenge! This one is called "Lemon Tart" and is a revised version of a design I did awhile ago but never did anything with. I thought it would be perfect for this challenge! I think this design would be great on kitchen items...but why not sheets and pillows?! If you want to see all the fun designs this week and vote, you can link to the Voting Page here!
I feel like I’ve been posting about my new “Modern Chintz” pattern design a bit much lately but I’ve just entered it in this week’s Spoonflower Design Challenge which just so happens to be “Chintz”! So thought I would let you know. On one hand, this design started with all those old-fashioned floral chintz patterns you've seen so much of (and which I love), but the way I drew the motifs and the fun colours are definitely more of today! If you would like to check out all the gorgeous designs, you can link to the Voting Page here (voting ends Nov 12)!
Spoonflower is offering FREE STANDARD SHIPPING Worldwide on all orders until October 27 2019!! You can purchase my pattern designs on all kinds of fabrics and home decor items, including my popular “Eucalyptus” design now featured in the current Holiday Issue of Spoonflower Magazine. Link to my Spoonflower Shop to check out what's available!

My son saw my brand new butterfly pattern and said it was "trippy"! What do you think, is it trippy? Maybe not trippy enough??! I think I will call this one "Free Spirits", a nod to the free-spirited optimism of the psychedelic 60s! Let me know what you think! This design is now available to license and if you are interested to license it for your products, just contact me!
When I'm working in my studio I often get distracted by little movements in the bushes outside my windows, usually caused by cute little gorgeous birds...So this new design is me trying to capture them in pattern! If you would like to follow along with more of my recent work, I invite you to check out my Instagram!
Can you tell I was just in Mexico? Couldn't wait to get back and start designing some new Mexico-inspired pattern designs...Here is my brand new "Folk Flowers" (I might change the name, any suggestions?). This one is all about bright colours and simple shapes, people tell me it's a happy design. I like that description! This pattern is now available to license, and more will be coming in this collection. If you are interested in licensing this design for your products, please do contact me!
This week's Spoonflower design challenge is "Neutral Retreat", the idea for this challenge was to create a larger-scale pattern for cozy bedding...I think my "Hellebores" pattern design in this Vintage colour palette does the trick! Check out the Voting Page (and all 859! entries, some of which I'm not sure I would call "neutral" though, maybe mine is borderline!)
