ELEPHANTASTIC

Three days ago I played country-place-river with my daughter at night and we had some great fun.
While counting points by the end of the game, I started to make scribbles on my paper and suddenly I had drawn a cute little elephant that looked perfect for a childrens motif.


I liked the idea of a pattern for little boys so I took blue in different shades combined with yellow and a fresh green backround. Isn´t this little guy cute? I instantly fell in love with him and his buddies.
What do you think of him?
Lots of love,

YOU ARE SO LOVED

Todays pattern comes straight from my heart. I dedicate it to a wonderful person that shared our family-life for only a couple of month and still made her way into all our hearts.


I am so thankful sharing all these fond memories with her. I am also thankful, finding all the touching impressions she brought to me. She came into our life, left footprints on our hearts and we are never, ever the same. 
You are so loved.

HEDGEHOGS FOR EVERYBODY

In our garden used to live the biggest hedgehog I have ever seen. He often showed up at night, making his way through the garden, sniffing so loud that we were able to hear him from far away.


I haven´t seen him for quite a while so I made this pattern for him. I hope, he is allright, happily getting ready for winter.
Have a wonderful day,

HAPPY FALL TO YOU ALL

A big sigh of relief is making it´s way through the world. I purchased a new printer since my old one broke down a couple of weeks ago. Gosh, I missed it so much making patterns and I desperately felt the need of returning to this wonderful habit of mine. While waiting for the new one to arrive I made sketches sitting on my sofa before bedtime and so I have some stuff ready turning into new motifs.
Autumn is on here in Germany and the leaves started to fall off the trees. I see lots of animals around getting ready for winter and this year it seems they are really busier than ever collecting food. I guess, we´ll get a long, strong, cold winter if the animals are right.
Today I started with a hedgehog-pattern and created different looking animals for this and combined them with fonts, leaves, mushrooms and doodles.


While creating and making the pattern look quite busy I more and more felt the need of creating a second version, that looks cleaner, crisper and less playful. Here it comes for you to see.


Letting go of details is called the principle of reduction and since I am a big fan of it I like my second motif more. What do you think about it? Are you more a motif 1 type or motif 2 type? Please feel free to write me your comment about it.
Lots of love,
