Well that's a wide theme, Geology! What to do, what to do.. I had in mind... fossils. I have a small sample of a fossil at home.... and it got me thinking....
A friend and I were wandering through a shop and it was loaded with crystals and all sorts of carved quartz balls.. a real treasure trove.
This design was born:

 The design on Woven Monkey may take a day or two to become visible, and for sale, please be patient. I like WM because you can get a really good look at the design with their magnifying glass.

Modern Farmhouse

Spoonflower comes up with the most unusual design challenges. The latest for voting on is Modern Farmhouse. In the brief we're told to use either creams and naturals or bright contemporary colours. I've gone neutral this week.
The way I see it is that every farmhouse, regardless of how modern it is, always has a woodpile :>D

Hope you like it and VOTE for it. Time is running out.

Summer Cookout

It's getting to be that time of year again.. long summer days when we can take time to be with family and friends, to kick back and laugh, love and relish the warmth.

The theme this week is therefore not surprising, it's called Summer Cookout. In some parts of the world it would be a Barbecue or a Braai. Whatever it's called its still means the same thing... FUN TIMES!

I was sorta stumped, couldn't think of anything, then someone said.. well you cook on a fire.. and an idea was born.
If you click on the link you'll see the full design.
Voting Dates are from 29th March to 2nd April 2018.
Click this LINK and it will take you to the contests page where you can select the Summer Cookout challenge and vote for me.. if you'd want to that is. It's easy, no signing in.. just scroll, click select, click submit.. type in some letters that you see and you're done!
Thanks so much if you do it!! I really appreciate it. :>D

Monochrome Designing

The joy of designing for this contest was trying to keep within the tones of the base colour I had chosen.
I spent about 15 or 16 hours creating this design.. I had a vision of a field of wildflowers and it turned out pretty close to what I was thinking of.... So here you are.. have a peek.
