Here's a question: can a design be both Art Nouveau and minimalist at the same time?! I actually call this design from my archive "Art Nouveau" so I thought I would enter it in this week's Spoonflower "Art Nouveau Wallpaper" Design Challenge! When I designed it I thought it felt like Art Nouveau albeit a bit pared-down and minimalist! What do you think? Does it "feel" like an Art Nouveau design to you?!

So those of you who know my work are probably thinking, "That's weird! Where's the colour?!" Well the answer is that my "Calatheas in Black and White" pattern design is my entry for this week's Spoonflower "Black and White Painterly" Design Challenge! You can check out all the monochromatic designs on the Voting Page here!
My "Blood Moon" Design in this Week's Spoonflower "1-Yd Abstract Landscape Wall Hanging" Design Challenge!
I'm a bit late posting about this week's Spoonflower "1-Yd Abstract Landscape Wall Hanging" Design Challenge since I was away on a much-needed holiday with my family on the Wild West Coast of Vancouver Island. But here is my new "Blood Moon" design which I though was fitting given we just spent the better part of the last week walking long beaches, storm-watching, and going for forest hikes! If you want to vote, you should hurry since voting will close tomorrow January 7 at 3:00 EST! Here is a link to the Voting Page!
ADDENDUM: Because "Blood Moon" ranked highly in the Challenge, it is now immediately available for sale in my Spoonflower Shop! Thanks for your votes, truly!
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!
Originally designed after a trip to Mexico, someone recently referred to my “Sayulita” pattern as a “70s floral” so I thought...okay its a sign! I’ll enter it in this week’s Spoonflower “Jewel-Tone 70’s” Design Challenge! Check out all the GROOVY designs at the Voting Page!

Here is one of my abstract designs that I re-coloured with all these crazy colour combinations and submitted to this week's Spoonflower "Kaleidoscope" Design Challenge. Look closely...How long do you think it took for me to decide on the colours? Don't ask...If you want to check out all the cool designs (and this week, I think "cool" is the right description), you can link to the Spoonflower Voting Page here! Voting ends Nov 19 at 3:00 EST.
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!
