more festive patterns

Here are some more festive patterns that have emerged from my sketchbook recently.
The top two were shortlisted in the recent Tigerprint competition for christmas giftwrap, which was nice. I am working on a lot of Christmas themed designs at the moment so you'd better duck out now if you're sick of seeing Christmassy stuff!

It's been a challenging kind of week here in Mondaland, but I'm still finding the time/energy I need to be creative. I'm working away on festive bits and bobs (still) today...

Print and Pattern, Designers for Hire

A couple of weeks back I was contacted by the lovely Marie from the Print & Pattern blog with an invite to be featured in her 'designers for hire' directory. A new part of the print and pattern blog which will help art directors, companies and businesses find freelance designers with ease.
The emphasis of the directory is a quick reference guide of quality designers. Those featured are by invite only so I feel particularly honoured to be featured alongside some fellow designers whose work I really admire.
Here is my banner:

bauble bling

I've revamped/reworked an old design for this weeks spoonflower comp, which is for gift wrap with the theme of ornaments. It's only 8 weeks until Christmas you know! Are you feeling festive yet? The extremely chilly weather in the UK today certainly helped it feel a bit more like autumn/winter.
