Look at this FANTASTIC DIY home decor project from talented home stylist Missy of Sonata Home Design! She used my Eucalyptus wallpaper from my Spoonflower Shop to completely transform an old bookshelf. Read her Blog Post to learn how she did it!
Missy says: "What a difference paint and wallpaper can make! We took bookshelves we have had for 20 years and gave them an update!"
If you love my "Eucalyptus" pattern design, be sure to check out my "Australian Flora" Collection in my Spoonflower Shop to see all the scale and colour options, available not only on Wallpaper, but also on Fabrics and lots of Home Decor items!
Here is my entry for this week's Spoonflower "Petal Solids Coordinates: Calm" Design Challenge! The idea behind this challenge was to use up to three given colours (this week it was Mushroom, Sky Blue and Pine) to create a design that will coordinate with the new Petal Signature 100% Cotton Solids coming soon to Spoonflower! I had a REALLY hard time with this challenge and ultimately entered the version using just one colour (Sky Blue) and optional White! BUT I also created a version using all 3 colours too which I think has a more earthy, cozy feel. BOTH versions are now available in my Spoonflower Shop in 3 sizes!

Awhile back I posted some pics on Instagram and Facebook of a gorgeous tree that I run by in the morning but had no idea what it was. I asked if any of you knew and you did...MIMOSA! I kept it in my mind to turn into a pattern design, so here it is...I entered this one in this week's Spoonflower "Petal Solids Coordinates: Joy" Design Challenge! The idea behind this challenge was to use three given colours (Mustard, Cotton Candy and Lagoon, and I added optional Black) to create a design that will coordinate with the new Petal Signature 100% Cotton Solids coming soon to Spoonflower! My "Mimosa" is now available in my Spoonflower Shop in 3 sizes on fabrics, wallpaper and home decor!
Here is my entry for this week's Spoonflower "Ice Crystals" Design Challenge and I find it so calming for some reason! This reminds me of the Khumbu Icefall on the way up to the summit of Mt. Everest. And NO, I've not seen it in person, just pictures and that fantastic IMAX movie "Everest" by MacGilivray Freeman (which I've probably watched about 7 times). But I did trek in the Himalayas many years ago...
This design is now available in my Spoonflower Shop in 3 sizes on fabrics, wallpaper and home decor!
This is my entry for this week's Spoonflower "Autumn Botanicals" Design Challenge! I created this design with the concept of Wabi Sabi in mind. Wabi Sabi is the ancient Japanese aesthetic that finds beauty in the imperfect, incomplete and impermanent, as seen in the natural cycle of growth and decay. Here, the leaves change from Spring/Summer Green to Autumn Colours to Winter Gray, when they dry up and drift away on the wind...And the cycle repeats again...
This design is now available in my Spoonflower Shop in 3 sizes on all kinds of fabrics, wallpaper and home decor. Check them all out my Spoonflower Shop!
Here is my entry for this week's Spoonflower "Neutral Geometric Wallpaper" Design Challenge (voting closes Tuesday Aug 24 2021)! And yes, this is about as "neutral" as I get...After all, there is beige, cream and navy in there! Navy is a neutral, right?!
This "Sunrise" design is now available in my Spoonflower Shop in 3 sizes AND in 2 completely different colourways (check both out below) on fabric, wallpaper and home decor!
BTW: I saw this Art Deco-inspired mockup from @creatsyofficial and thought it would be the perfect match for this design!

HEEEY!! I just realized I missed posting about my last TWO entries to the Spoonflower Design Challenges!

EEK! PHANTASMAGORIA Design Challenge
Voting closed Aug 10 2021
One definition of Phantasmagoria is "a series of real or imaginary images like those seen in a dream". I think my "Eyeballs" design might be more of a nightmare! In any event, I think this is good and creepy and PERFECT for all your Halloween makes!
NOCTURNAL ANIMALS Design Challenge
Voting closed August 17 2021
I sometimes really struggle with trying to put TOO much into a design, but for my "There Be Owls" design I wanted to simplify the design while making sure it still says "OWL". And then I had to add in lots of colour, of course! What do you think?
My Entry for the Spoonflower "Pastel Halloween" Design Challenge! Get Those Halloween Projects Started Now!
Here is my entry for this week's Spoonflower "Pastel Halloween" Design Challenge, called "Happy Halloween Damask"! It might seem a little funny to be thinking about Halloween in the middle of Summer, but I'm sure all the amazing sewists and makers out there probably appreciate this so you're not rushed getting your spooky projects ordered and finished in time for Oct 31!
TIP: My HAPPY HALLOWEEN Collection in my Spoonflower Shop has 5 coordinating spooooky designs (but not toooo spooooky) on all kinds of fabrics, wallpaper and home decor! Each one comes in both a Pastel and Traditional colourway (see both below) AND each comes in 3 sizes too! Lots and lots of options!
Check out my Spoonflower Shop and my Happy Halloween Collection AND the Voting Page to check out all the entries!
This week's Spoonflower Design Challenge is "Take a Hike". Hiking is one of my favourite things to do (I live on the West Coast after all!) So I thought my "Land of Plenty" design would be perfect since I designed it to celebrate our natural world. I entered the brightly-coloured version, but it also comes in a lighter pastel version (see below!) and in Tiny-, Small- and Large-Scale versions too! If you would like to check out the entries this week, head to the Voting Page! Public voting ends June 29 2021!

Me Made May was created by Zoe Edwards from a personal challenge ten years ago to wear only things she made for a month. She then asked others to join her via her blog and every year it has grown with hundreds joining her as she inspires sewists to be thoughtful about their handmade wardrobes. This year, over 30 Spoonflower employees participated in the challenge and I just wanted to share this gorgeous ruffle-sleeve top created by Kelley O. using my "Australian Eucalyptus" design. Love it and I think she looks absolutely gorgeous!
Check out the Spoonflower Blog Post (May 28 2021) all about Me Made May and the over 30 projects created by Spoonflower employees!
You can also see more of my designs (including this one!) in my Spoonflower Shop!

For this week's Spoonflower "Weather Patterns" Design Challenge I decided to adapt my "Elemental Air" art print into a repeat because I think the subject matter was perfect for this challenge (and also because I think it makes a very nice patchwork-inspired repeat pattern too!)

This is my entry for this week's Spoonflower "Charcuterie Board" Design Challenge! So many delectable things to include, but after I finished I realized I forgot to add cheese (you need something to eat with those crackers)! So I had to make my co-ordinate "Cheese, Please!" design to go with it!

I've just entered my "Jardin" design in this week's Spoonflower "Moody Tropical Flora Wallpaper" Design Challenge! I adapted this repeat pattern from an abstract floral art print I created (see it in my Art Prints Portfolio) and I really like how it has a modern Art Nouveau feel (maybe it has something to do with the colours too?)!
Check out all the entries at the Voting Page and you can shop this design in my Spoonflower Shop where it is available on fabric, wallpaper and home decor!
I'm a bit late posting about this week's Spoonflower "Embroidery Template" Design Challenge (I've been working on a "project" and will fill you in soon!) I thought my "Flowered Heart" design would make a great pattern for embroidery (check out the close-up in the 2nd pic!), and with so many people taking up new hobbies, this one is a timely one! You can link to the Voting Page here (voting is open until May 11 2021), and check out all the designs for fabric, wallpaper and home decor offered in my Spoonflower Shop!
