I can finally share a project I have been working on for the past year with LOKALwear!  I mentioned it back in September but had to wait a little longer to share.  Bruna Patko is the brain and designer behind LOKALwear.  Bruna and I have had a great time collaborating on this project inspired by Matyo folk flowers and Kalocsai lace.  I can not wait to get back to Budapest and pick up my shirts!  I want to wear them now!

I think this is my favorite design.  It is screen printed with an embroidered bird!
This one is inspired by Kalocsai lace
And this one by the Matyo flowers.
 The shirts come in other colors also but these photographed the best.  What do you think??

Society6 new prints!

 Check out the new Society6 prints uploaded last night!  Since this design is super popular I thought I would have fun with the size and try making it really big.  This is my favorite so far.

Pike Place Market
I have been in Seattle for 2 weeks now.  It has been a surreal trip.  Strange to think it has been over three years since we left!  We have been catching up friends, visiting some of our old stomping grounds and being tourists in areas that have changed over the years.

To make it even more surreal I am working with my old employer creating artwork and lending a hand with overflow work.  And on Tuesday I met with a client that I have been working with for over three years that I have never met face to face-tonight I head to their company Christmas party.  I guess you can say this trip has been more productive than I anticipated:)  There have been so many new exciting opportunities that have shown themselves since I have been in Seattle that I am feeling a bit overwhelmed.  I really need a day to soak it all up and plan out 2012.  Hopefully I will get a bit of break at Christmas when we head to the mountains for 4 days! (I can not tell you how excited I am to be in snow and surrounded by nature!)

I was hoping to see "the mountain" when I was here.  We have had so many clear days it is shocking!  My husband took the photos below while on his way to a meeting in the morning.  Beautiful.
I was working from a friends house a few days ago and this was my view at around 5:00pm.  
Enjoy your day!

FAM recap

This past Saturday was FAM - Fatto a Mano.  I was so excited to be one of the participating artists.  It was so much fun meeting new artists and reconnecting with artists I haven't seen in 3 years.  Below are a few photos from the show.

Finally set up before the crowd arrives.

Society6 new prints!

Here are the new Society6 prints for this week!  I have a feeling this is going to be a popular one from the feedback I have already gotten from friends!

This is called Laughter.  I guess you can say this is what I think laughter looks like:)  What do you think?
Here it is in blue and white.
  Being in Seattle has been great!  I met up with my friend Susan last week and she pulled out her iphone for show and tell!  I had to share the photo!
She bought Dancing Dahlia in Blue (one of top sellers)
