Spoonflower and Boba Baby Carrier Contest: Nature!

Spoonflower has teamed up with Boba Baby Carriers for a new fabric design contest. Theme: Nature.

I LOVED this contest! I use baby carriers constantly with our boys and know what a lifesaver they can be. :) I wanted my fabric to reflect how I feel when I'm carrying my own children. The safety, comfort, and most of all, hope for the fantastic lives they'll have.

I always enjoyed seeing the cherry blossoms in the springtime when we lived near Washington, DC. I decided that was a perfect center for me.

My fabric description:
Delicate cherry blossoms bring thoughts of the new life of a child. Hope for who he can become. Hope for her positive influence on others. Hope through innocence and purity. Hope for the future.

Here are the ideas I toyed with. The third one is, of course, my favorite. I would love to have a carrier made with this fabric!

Spotted Box Samples Sent

I've participated in The Spotted Box before and loved it! It's a fantastic way to advertise and I really enjoy receiving my own box. :)

Next month they have an ad set up for "Mothering Magazine", which should bring in a large amount of traffic.

I decided to offer my mini-samples again for The Box, using three of my newer, most popular printable images: "Goldfish in a Baggie", "Chocolate Rainbow Lollipop", and "Modern Tree of Life". I included printed instructions for ironing on the transfer, along with a business card with a discount code printed on the back. :)

Look for us in The Spotted Box on the 15th of March, April, and May!

Mini Samples cut out and ready to be assembled.
Some samples stapled together.

Packaged in zip-top baggies to prevent any water damage while in transit and make sorting easier for April and Jordan.
Signed, sealed, and (soon-to-be) delivered! I love that they all fit in a Priority Mail Envelope.

Note: yes, this endeavor did take several days to complete. Oh how I love seeing finished projects ready to be delivered!

Spoonflower Contest: Snow!

Spoonflower is an amazing company where users upload designs and the company turns them into beautiful fabrics, available for purchase by everyone!

We've finally decided to be brave and enter our first contest at Spoonflower. Theme: Snow.

I LOVE the Retro Snowflake Tree design I created in November and thought it would make a gorgeous fabric. I created 5 more colors for a total of 9 different colored trees. My awesome husband suggested placing some of the trees upside down. I made the background a very light blue and added larger, matching snowflakes for greater contrast and depth to the design.

Here's my entry image! (click image to view larger)

And here are a few closeups of my fabric design (click images to view larger):

Hyena Cart Coding for "Fishnoodles"

Dawn needed her Hyena Cart coding fixed so the layout would match her main site, her stat counter added, and her images uploaded to Photobucket.

I also created a cute little JoyfulRose icon (aka "favicon") as a freebie. :)

Here's her final HC layout:

Animated Banners for "Laines Magnifiques", Part 2

Here are Nicole's finished banners!

She wasn't too fond of her tag line, so I included a new header without the tag line for her. :)

Animated Banners for "Laines Magnifiques"

Nicole is introducing brand new colorways to her site! She asked if I could make a couple of banners for her with pics of her current colorways and a question mark to represent the upcoming colorways. :)

Here are the mock-ups. Each pair is the same, but with different backgrounds because I couldn't decide which I liked better!
