New stuff made from old stuff!

Hello everyone, it's been a long time, 2015 started off on the wrong foot for me and so far I have only been surrounded by illness and sadness... and stress. I believe that life dishes out a lot of hurdles on the way, and sometimes they all appear at the same time! We just have to take everyday as it comes and life will eventually go back to some normality pretty soon.

So to calm my spirit and get back on track again and I have been designing like mad!!! It annoyed me that I had no new work to show but lots of motifs and unfinished stuff which has been around for sometime. So I have taken a lot of old designs (well old to me) I have put some into repeats, changed colours and finished things off nicely, and now I have a lot of new work to show off and more importantly... sell!

Here below you will find tiny snippets of 'new stuff made from old stuff', if you get what I mean. I know it's called recycling but it has had some surprising results, almost all the designs I have reworked have taken on a totally new aspect, brighter, newer and better. More than anything this exercise has given me lots of pleasure, and most of all, new confidence to start off all over again. The great news is that I have managed to license 15 new designs for home products and also submitted lots of patterns and designs which I hope to sell at an important trade fair in April. 
All this in just two weeks.

Life already feels much better, many of the hurdles have been smoothed out and I feel able to tackle things again. New patterns are waiting to be created and I now feel up to the challenge, so watch this space!
