Halloween Pom Pom Garland Design for the 2014 Calendar
So, we don’t really celebrate halloween at our house. It’s not an Australian tradition, but it is gaining in popularity here, much to my husbands dismay. He is American, but he HATES halloween.
Do you like Halloween?
Do you do Halloween stuff at Halloween?
Do you like pom pom garlands?
Do you think I should offer this design as a card too?
If I do, should I get literal and have it actually say: “Halloween” somewhere?
Illustration for December 2014 Calendar… You can also expect to see this as a Christmas card soon.
I’ve been very slow off the mark with the calendar this year. I’ve normally started by June and July. This year I’ve struggled with the illustrations and the overall concept. Normally I base them on designs for cards I’ve done during the year, but give them a twist. This year I wanted to do something different and have struggled with two other concepts for it, neither of which worked out, for one reason of another. I think I’ve found another way to work with it, which I’m far happier with, and which I still think I can get into my Etsy store soonish.
Let me know what you think? Do you like geometric designs? Too minimalist? Like the bows? Think the bows ruin the geo-minimalism? Other thoughts?
I’ve just given the Paper Ivy writing sets an upgrade. They used to have 8 pieces of writing paper and 4 envelopes. Now they have:
– 8 pieces of writing paper
– 4 envelopes
– 4 envelope seals
– 1 ruled writing guide to help keep your writing in line… literally.
Let me know what you think.
p.s. You can buy a Paper Ivy Writing Set at the Paper Ivy Etsy Shop or if you are a Sydney-sider you can also get them at The Elm Tree.

If you use the writing guide behind your writing paper you won’t get to the end of your letter and find that it’s all sloping down the page! (Green Blossom Tree Writing Set on Cream Stock. )
