My husband's Spoonflower fabric


My husband used to draw. A lot. Since the children came along and he became a "professional" anything artistic has taken a back seat and been almost non existent. I wanted to encourage him to start drawing again so I ordered some fabric from Spoonflower with some of his old designs as a surprise.



I'm so glad I did. He has become so inspired and it's so great to see him feeling more like his "old (young!) self" again. The best part is seeing him hunched over his sketch pad again and imagining all the applications for his designs. He says he has found a part of himself that had been "dumbed down" and forgotten.

Naturally, this is all a dream come true to Mrs. Artsy Crafty!

Regarding my last post - I've temporarily switched to the old editor in order to post pictures, hoping that it will somehow just fix itself and I can go back to the new editor. Old editor is, well, old!

What a wonderful suprise for him. It's so common that we lose our creativity when we grow up and have to get a real job.
I'm so glad you've managed to kick start his inspiration again.

That is so neat that your husband is an artist too!
I received the beautiful fabric - thank you! I need to choose a project or two to make with it and then I will be sure to blog about it.
Warm wishes, Tonya
