Fall is here!

There is nothing that invigorates me more than the first few crisp days of fall. It makes me want to run away to the woods, light a fire, warm up some tea and wrap myself up in a cozy blanket to just stare at the nature outside. What can I say I absolutely love fall! The family has a weeks vacation up at the cottage in a few weeks so it should be perfect fall weather and I don't think I've ever been this excited to get up there. Hopefully I'll find lots of inspiration up there, we plan to do little day trip and will likely visit other artisans and parks.

So since I'm on the fall kick I should share some of my photos of fall items from my photo shoot. I absolutely love how they turned out, now I just need some more buyers! :)

Free swatches from Spoonflower

So Spoonflower is having a free swatch day on Aug 20th. It's on my calendar and I'm ready and waiting.

I've ordered swatches from here before as I'm working on a little project that will require custom designed fabric and Spoonflower is just the place to do it.

It was super easy to do, I just uploaded a design pic and chose my fabric then a week or so later had my swatches in the mail. Now I don't know if that's cost effective for bulk orders but it lets me test out my ideas on a small scale easily.
