It feels like October today which inspired me to enter Spoonflower's Halloween Theme fabric design contest. While I drew this print I was thinking of the haunted houses that are in my memories - Disneyland with my cousins when I was too little and really scared, the Enchanted Forest with my daughter when she was too little and too scared...I wanted to capture a feeling of an old damask fabric without being to literal. I hope I make it to the voting stage!

Click here to see a print from Portland designer Cate Anevski that I saw while I was browsing - I really love it and am excited about the possibility of being in this competition with her.

Back to School with Design Camp!

The studio has been quiet since the last camp ended a week ago, but I have been busy putting together a fall workshop schedule that I am super excited about. Stay tuned for posts about that in the next week or two. There are lots of exciting ideas brewing.
