Thanks so much for all your warm, cuddly, loving comments and emails whilst I have been reviewing and planning the future of my beloved Elefantz Designs.
I truly felt the love, and that blessed my socks off more than you know.
...NEWS on the future of Elefantz...
Firstly, my sweet and talented Blossom has been working for me whilst convalescing from her sprained ankle. I gave her a sketch of how I'd like my new logo to look and with her laptop, her Bamboo pad, and her incredibly creative mind,she has brought it to life!
She started with my original stitched Ellie design from 2010...
...and then with a swipe of her pens, she immortalised my little Ellie...
How cute is Ellie today!?
Next, again with her magic pen, Blossom worked on my rough sketch of the new Elefantz logo and banner, until we both agreed it was perfect...
What do you think?
(Sneak news: next week I'll tell you how you too can get a fresh banner or logo because Blossom is setting up an online shop!)
My new pattern and shop!
I was overwhelmed with your response to my new "Partridge & Pears" design!
I love it, but to discover YOU love it too - thank you! \o/
A decision was made by Mr E and I this week to take back full control of Elefantz Designs.
I cannot tell you how much I have missed writing for, and designing for, my e-zine.
The lack of enthusiasm by bricks and mortar stores in Australia for my patterns knocked the wind out of me too.
With a house move, family illness, and our livelihood vanishing, we knew it was time to step up once more and run the business I love to the best of my God-given abilities.
(and those of the talented Blossom and the wise and wonderful Mr E)
So, a new logo, a new banner, and in the coming week, a new blog dress.
And a NEW way for you to purchase my patterns!!
It's back to pdf's, but no more waiting for me to email them to you.
You can purchase "Partridge & Pears" TODAY as an immediate pattern download HERE in my Craftsy Pattern Store. \o/
The pattern also includes the bonus mini redwork instructions too.
Thanks for hanging in with me while I walked a wonky path.
The road is straight again. I see the Light ahead.
And my magazine?
It's coming back.
Have a blessed and joy-filled weekend, and be sure to drop by next week. Changes will begin to appear on the blog, and more news of Blossom's new enterprise will come to light.
