I’ve been doing a little sketchin’ lately, ok a lot of sketchin’. This one started out as a “quick & simple” design for this week’s Spoonflower contest. Half an hour max.. I was only going to draw the jar. Haha, right. Four hours later I had an entire page filled with everything the word pickle could bring to mind. I lose hours in my sketchbook. One minute it’s 10am and the next thing I know Steve is in the kitchen making dinner. It’s a very magical thing.pickle sketchbook jayme hennel

This week’s sketch hit the scanner and quickly turned into just the darn cutest pickle pattern I’ve ever seen. I love the little sprigs of dill and the polka dot spices in the background. If you’re on Spoonflower, hop over to vote in the contest. It will be open for the next few days before they announce the winner.

Sweet as Honey Fabric Launch

I’ve been experimenting with pattern design lately and today my very first collection is launching for sale on Spoonflower. It is available in fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap! How fun is that?
