More and more lately I've been wrapping presents in beautifully plain simple kraft paper. I love it :) I think it has a pared-back elegance that softly whispers 'You're going to love what's inside here' ;) Good old kraft paper does need a bit of neon pop to set it off though.... So, I've made up some gift tags using my original artwork design, Oh! Embroidered 2, just for this purpose :) If you feel like a bit of neon pop too, you can find some 'popping' gift tags here :)
I've been working on this piece for a long time now... too long I think... and I've come to a grinding halt. It's got to the stage where I actually prefer the back of the piece! (Well, to be fair, I do always like the back of stitchery... but should I actually prefer it?) Anyway, enough moaning. Just saying that this piece has been shelved for a while... maybe a long while ;) If you have any ideas, comments are very welcome :)
There's a certain someone who's been urging me to sell prints of my pieces, so I thought I'd give it a go.... Then there was someone else who suggested a new selling venue, so I'm trying that out too! This design is now available in my new Society 6 store as art prints, cards and iPhone cases :)
I've been going a bit pattern crazy here... and have listed another original pattern in my Etsy shop. This latest pattern is for my Zpagetti Shopping Bag.
I've been making plans... Working out what I want to do; what direction I see Paravent taking in the future. As much as I love crocheting and making things with yarn, I've decided these things take up more time than I have... hence the patterns for peeps to make their own :) Hope you like it.
