Hi, I'm Shel

June 14, 2013

Hello friends! I'm checking in after a while away from blogging. Here's what's new and exciting in my world:

First, on a personal note... my youngest Noah just graduated high school with a 4.0+ GPA and lots of AP credit for college. Life's been a whirlwind, full of family visits and so many celebrations around this huge event. Noah's off to beautiful UCSB -- a gorgeous University of California campus right on the ocean -- this fall. I'm so proud I could burst.

On a design note... My 'Glamping Stripes' pattern, originally created for a Spoonflower weekly contest (and now available on t-shirts, iPhone cases, totes, and pillows, among other items at Society6), is featured in the "Trailer Treasures" section of the current (issue 14) Australia's Vintage Caravan Magazine. Thank you Editor Lisa Mora, for the compliment and honor of this appearance!

Last (but certainly not least), on a teddy bear note... I'm thrilled to announce a new partnership with the incredible Silly Bears of Aberdeen,...

This week's Spoonflower contest has a donkey & elephant theme. My entry Donkey Donkey Eliphonky is a softly illustrated wish for kinder, gentler politics this election year.

You can vote for my entry (and/or any of the rest) on Spoonflower's weekly contest page, through next Wednesday. Thanks in advance if you do. :)

My Fun Finches  fat quarter design won 1st in Spoonflower's Etsy Craft Party contest and was featured on Etsy's How-Tuesday blog earlier this week. Very exciting! Click here for a look at these cheery birdies on Spoonflower. Bonus: Coupon code ETSYPARTY12 gets you a free custom printed fat quarter featuring this or any Spoonflower fabric.

I love sewing, soaping,
nature, reading, people, birds, Disney, coffee, & fleece

Musings and messes and magic and fun... the happy scrapbook of a creative, grateful life.

Sometimes I link to resources that I use personally and thus feel comfortable recommending to others. I participate in the Amazon Associates program, so when you purchase using my links I may receive a small percentage of the sale (at no additional cost to you.) Thank you for helping support indie artisans!  I will only recommend what I know and believe in; never just to be compensated. So when I write that I use and love something, you can trust that I really do.
