This pretty pattern was the first one I created after getting my Cintiq. I remember my husband leaving to go run errands just as I finished installing the new equipment. We said goodbye and as he headed out I started drawing flowers. Time escaped and before I knew it I was in that misty area of the astral plane where you, the artist, vanish until eventually you look up and realize you’ve finally been set free from whatever mental flow was holding your senses captive. I remember hitting the print button to print this floral when my husband popped his head back into the studio. “Oh, you’re back early!” I said. “I’ve been gone for hours?!” he said. If I didn’t have the floral pattern printing in front of me I would have sworn the time missing from my memory was due to alien abduction.
This print sold to the lovely fabric buyers of Hobby Lobby last January and the colors reproduced PERFECTLY! Sometimes the background looks dark green and in other lightings its a deep blue. It was such a thrill to come across it on a Simplicity package while I was shopping for sewing patterns. It touches a special place in my heart to think of the generations of daughters, moms, and grandmothers who might see it and be inspired to create something themselves. My Grammy (who loved to sew and always encouraged me to do so) would have really got a kick out of this.

13230286_558414711365_2660908029790665244_nBlueprint is over.. what a whirlwind! I can’t believe 5 days flew by just like that! This was definitely a show of a different color (pun intended). Everyone exhibiting and circulating the show all admitted openly to feeling the energy and comrodery at Blueprint. I have to admit I was unsure how I would do at this particular show as it was  full of talented artists and prolific agencies. Not to mention the majority of the buyers were from the paper product industry. Seeing as I have mostly been selling to fabric and apparel companies, I was very curious and eager to see how the paper and gift industry would accept Designastration Studio. Much to my delight I had a very successful show! Most of my design friends know that I’ve been itching to have my designs on wrapping paper, and it was a dream come true when several wrapping paper companies stopped by and purchased some of my most special designs. I’m so excited to share that my artwork will also be on greeting cards, gift bags, party tableware, and even stationary! One of the giftwrap buyers also mentioned the possibility of using the characters in the design for wall decals!
Everyday of the show was busy except for Sunday, which also happened to be the opening day at Surtex. On Sunday the artists and studios spent some of the slow time getting to know each other and having so much fun. Artists from the UK, Europe, and from all over the US all pitching in, sharing ideas, and talking about art. How could you not fall in love with Blueprint?
