Beginning Today

It's a new beginning for me.  I have an 18 month old who keeps me joyfully busy and inspired to change the direction of my life to pursue my surface pattern design dream.  Every morning my son and I water some seedlings on the windowsill hoping they will grow into beautiful flowers to fill our garden, and lettuce and scrumptious vegetables to fill our tummys.

It is the inspiration behind this project.  

I'll start with my moodboard:

My Story...

'Beginning today' is inspired by everything new.  New seeds growing into flowers, fruit and vegetables, new career, a new family and new happiness. It's the beginning of a new chapter, another page turned.  A new direction following the path of my dreams.

And finally, some product mock-ups...
