Contests, Anticipation, and Tropical Vacations

This is my last post for a few weeks. The husband and I are headed to the Dominican Republic for a much-needed vacation. It feels as if it's been years since I've felt what 90ยบ weather is like. 

In the past month I've been entering various design contests. I entered the design below in the Valparaiso Popcorn Festival's Poster Design Contest. Winners are announced Friday. My fingers are crossed 'til then.

I also began designing repeat fabric patterns for fun. This is something I've always messed around with in Illustrator, and a few times I've had to actually put my skills to use at work. The design below will be my first entry into a Spoonflower contest. I love, love, LOVE Spoonflower. Expect many more posts pertaining to my love of this amazing business. I can't wait to get my test swatch! It should be waiting for me in the mailbox when we get back.

Lots to look forward to in the next few weeks!
For now, the Etsy shop is "On Vacation", and I'm about to be, too!
