1 - I love seeing my designs printed on fabric. I'm not sure why fabric is more exciting to me than a print on paper but it is. The fact that I can then take the fabric and sew something from it makes me happy.
2 - I love the Spoonflower community. I've never personally met any of my Spoonflower connections but they are just the nicest group of supportive, happy people.
3 - I love the feeling that I get every time I make a sale! I don't think that feeling will ever get old. It's so nice to know that someone likes my design enough to actually purchase it. I'm so thankful.
4 - Last but not least, I love the weekly contest. Even when I'm not entered into a contest, I still log in each week and cast my vote. I don't think I've ever missed a week. I'm always amazed by the creativity. If you're looking to challenge yourself, I highly recommend jumping in and entering a design.
Recently, I've started to get back into entering the contests because they have had a few themes that have interested me. I think the contests are a great way to challenge myself. Here are some new designs that came about because of the Spoonflower weekly contests.
Hot Air Balloons. (I know, I need to get more creative with my names.) This design was entered into the "Flying Machine" contest.
Summer on the Islands. This design was created for the "Islands" contest
I'll be back soon! I'm working on next weeks theme "Bees". I'm really loving my sketch.
