All manner of wondrous new items and designs have fluttered to my online shops!

As a surface designer and illustrator I have to admit to being thrilled with the current burgeoning industry of print on demand. Most certainly so as more and more quality products come on line that are a joy to design for, and supply my lovely customers with products that look great and are excellent quality for the price.

My new Redbubble scarves being a case in point - I cannot tell you how overjoyed I was when I opened my first 'sample'
Would the scarf stand up to my high expectations, I am a great lover of scarves and nearly always wear one when I go out - I knew it was chiffon - and a fantastic size  at 55 inches square - but would it drape well and how nicely were the edges finished - that was a big one in my book because a simple serged edge doesn't look like quality to me - so imagine my delight when I opened the box above and out came this:
Beautifully printed, a wonderful drape, amazing size with fabric thin enough to bunch beautifully and not be distracting or uncomfortable around one's shoulders or neck AND - ta dah! - and a very nicely finished edge - PHEW what a relief and a great thrill to be sure!

Here's a picture of my elegant friend Maureen of Jeweled Horizons wearing my Gilding the Lily scarf and one of her own wonderful creations in the form of a beautiful antique trade bead necklace.

Allover t-shirt qualties:
"These premium quality American Apparel all over print shirts feature original art from seam to seam. The cotton-soft 100% polyester wicks moisture and maintains a rich color throughout. 
***All over print tees are unisex fit, so women should make size selections accordingly and order a minimum of one size smaller.***
***Please Note: Every shirt is uniquely produced using a sublimation process that can create anomalies in some areas, typically under the arm, that leaves small portions of fabric white***

Thanks so much for taking a look at my new items - I really appreciate it!

Next up on my blog will be a new Blueberry recipe and a round up of all my older blueberry recipes in honour of the upcoming blueberry harvest.
