Fabric for Sale at Hobby Lobby

It's always fun seeing your designs hit stores, but this time it was extra special. These two patterns were ones that I designed over 2 years ago and had put on the wall of my very first Surtex show. So I'm happy to announce that I now have fabric for sale at Hobby Lobby! Yay!!! 

New Apparel at Elm Lifestyle

There's just something about seeing a design that you created turn in to reality. I don't think I'll ever tire of it! Well, in stores now are two designs from my New Again collection applied on casual womenswear including a jacket, shirtdress, tank, and t-shirt from Elm Lifestyle, known for their effortless, everyday style. The items are available at small clothing boutiques and homewares stores around Australia and New Zealand. Exciting! I wish I lived closer to these boutiques to see it all in person!

One of Chicago's Most Inspiring Entrepreneurs

Wow. Back in May I was contacted by Voyage Chicago asking me if I would like to be featured in one of their articles. They wanted to ask me a bunch of questions about my business and being an entrepreneur. I happily obliged and today I am absolutely thrilled and honored to be included as one of Chicago's Most Inspiring Entrepreneurs! I've been an entrepreneur for 8 years and I never would have guessed in a million years that this type of honor would happen to me! Little old me who started out designing birthday party invitations for friends and am now designing patterns and art for various surfaces with products for sale in major stores like Target and Home Depot. I'm happy to not only be inspirational to others but it has even inspired me to be a better artist and entrepreneur. Thank you Voyage Chicago! Read the full article here.
