Sometimes it isn’t about paper

I don’t mention my Society6 shop a whole lot but I wanted to let you know that I’ve been editing my designs there. I use a mug with the yellow flowers almost on a daily basis and I take the black tote bag with me to work every day. We also have a clock hanging on one of my studio walls. I always make things that I’d want to use – so why not actually use some?

Originally, I ordered these products to check the quality of what I’d be placing my patterns on, but now I buy them as gifts for teachers and to use myself. I get such a kick out of seeing one of my tote bags on a teacher’s shoulder. Hee-hee!

My favorite thing about my Society6 products is that they give me the chance to work on my pattern work which I enjoy so much. Like I’ve said recently, I still love surface design. I probably like seeing my patterns on all the Society6 products because it’s the closest I can get to seeing a Patricia Zapata goods shop. Ha!

Speaking of patterns… Updating my Spoonflower page will be a goal for this summer. I have several collections for children’s projects that I just need to upload. Some floral and geometric designs are also ready to go.

Even after being at a full-time job for over 3 years now I’m still finding it hard to keep up with it all. Please bear with me, I will eventually get there!
