I was in need of a “real-live” book….Yea, Yea, digital books are great, but there is just something comforting about perusing the 303 pages of this design book!!
I did a book review of the first Print & Pattern book 3 years ago. I still like to pick it up and thumb thru those pages.
Here’s a review of my Top Ten prints:
Alys Paterson: Love her colors and the size variants here.
Amy Butler: I’ve bought her fabrics before. I liked this because it only uses 4 colors and it has flowers….I’m a sucker for flowers.
Graziela: Very German here, love the colors and the simplicity of each figure.
Jennifer Elroy: More flowers, helps feed my fetish.
Jonathan Adler: Again, a limited color pallet, and what fun suns!!
Jenny Bowers: Now this I gotta try, need I say more?
Marimekko: Classy & Elegant are those black & white designs
Mercedes Cortes: Love the simple stripes in the flowers.
Rob Ryan: La piece da resistance, this one nailed it cuz it’s so true!!
“You Can Still Do a Lot With a Small Brain”
Well, these are my top 10 for today….but if I were to compile another list in 6 months, I bet I’d have a completely different top ten. My tastes seem to fluctuate, haha.
You can get the Print & Pattern book here.
Check out this blog that produced Print & Pattern.

- By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
