I was suddenly inspired to create this little guy, and I thought he’d make a cute little hanging decoration for Halloween, so I’m sharing him here with you.
Print. Cut. Hang…. enjoy!
I can’t believe we’re already into October; where has the time gone? It’s amazing to me how quickly the minutes become hours, hours become days, and so on and so forth – especially since I moved to California. Speaking of which, how has it already been 8 years? I am amazed, to say the least.
2014 has not been the most productive year for me; I’ve suffered from a lack of time management, lack of inspiration, and oftentimes a lack of self-worth. I’m slowly realizing, however, that I must take my life into my own hands to craft my future and happiness. That’s a tough one to grasp sometimes, methinks.
During my past few months of self-discovery, I’ve given this little site nary a thought, but that doesn’t mean it’s over. I have high hopes of reclaiming my presence on the web, and using this site as a means for playing, practicing and flushing out some ideas. Of course, that means a continuation of the freebie universe here on the blog, so kick back, relax and prepare to print your brains out!
Thanks for sticking with me this year – I can’t believe how many hits the site’s continued to get. You are awesome! Hopefully I’ll be able to provide you with plenty of reasons to keep coming back.
A note for anyone who sent a request in 2014: I’m sorry that it wasn’t met. I’ll do what I can to catch up as soon as possible.
I whipped up a bunch of new versions of my classic chevron pattern, in different colors and configurations, before I left for vacation. I even uploaded them to the server… and then forgot to come back and schedule a few posts. So much for planning ahead!
I swear, these days I can’t seem to focus on more than one thing at a time, and I’ve got about 10 things that I’m trying to juggle at once. Anyway, here are some new chevron patterns for your downloading pleasure. As always, if you make something cute, send me a pic! I love seeing my downloads in action.
I made this pattern by accident and actually really liked it, so now I’m sharing it with you. Enjoy + have fun! I hope you make something fabulous!
I was playing around with Illustrator this weekend, trying to make a perfect scatter brush in hopes of cutting corners. Well, that didn’t pan out as I’d hoped but it did inspire today’s printable. I’m calling it Solar Circles because it feels kind of space-y. Now go forth and make fun stuff!
Today’s patterns are the cousins of yesterday’s extreme chevrons. I was just playing around with the placement of my repeating triangles and liked the way these looked.

I’ll have this week’s downloads added to the downloads page within the next week. Enjoy!
Hey, hi, hello! I love having this blog as a creative outlet because it allows me to play around with different ideas and inspires me to try new things… which is what happened the other day.
I was working on some geometric patterns using triangles and accidentally created these gems. So here’s your extreme chevron – I hope you can find a use for it! Within the week I’ll link them on the chevron downloads page. Enjoy!
I saw this fabric that was just large, bold stripes and it inspired me to make some papers. Here you go! Happy Friday!
Hey there! Happy almost-spring!
Thanks for visiting this old blog despite the lack of updates. And thanks for your comments/messages. Here are responses to the latest requests.
And finally, I have the first round of organization started on my downloads files. You can access a sampling of the chevron patterns by clicking the link under FREEBIES in the menu bar, or by visiting this link.
This is only the beginning, folks. Much more awesomeness to come!
Remember, I love seeing what you make with my patterns, so feel free to email me a pic!
