Spending more time at home has really made me feel the need for a proper clean up.
I've been busy cleaning, sorting, categorising and de-stashing my home all week. It's tedious but rewarding all at the same time.
I'm pleased to say that my spare room is looking and feeling more like a usable studio/office now and I know where everything is and everything almost has a place. The are plenty of bits and bobs that don't have a place though, so I have accumulated a huge pile of items which will be making their way to ebay soon - one man's trash is another man's treasure, as the old saying goes.
I'm still dibbling and dabbling in illustrator, and have decided to capture some of the stuff that's going on in my life, in illustration/pattern design form - it's a good way for me to practice.
Monday this week marked the third year of my journey into the blogosphere, so I've created a couple of patterns using the number three (click on pics to enlarge):
I thought I'd also give away three lots of my 'trash' to anyone out there who wants it (I'll post it anywhere in the world).
No. 1 - Giant monda kitty - he was a prototype, but I found him just a bit too big really
No. 2 - a huge pile of craft/scrapbooking papers and some paper flower embellishments
No. 3 - 4 balls of soft fluffy yarn. It's acrylic (not really my bag) and ever so soft. It's white with black flecks.
Please drop me a comment here if you'd like any of my trash. It would be helpful if you could tell me whether you'd like trash 1, 2 or 3. I'll pop back in on Monday 17th May and draw the trash recipients at random.
