I used to want to be a fashion designer. I ALWAYS used to draw girls. I love creating patterns. I loved that bright plum paper I saw at Daniel Smith the other day. I never use purple. Something HM would like. I discovered again my old tube of process magenta gouache. Perfect. Who knew the combo of that sheet of paper, these adorable little notecard dolls and my new pink-patterned coffee cup would be so inspiring — and give me something to frame for HM's room…and to use for my coffee mug?!
