I got my first fabric swatches from Spoonflower.com today! It is so exciting to see my drawings translated into fabric! The colors are a bit different (as can be expected with printing issues), but overall, I think they are so cool! I’m going to really have to work on creating some fantastic fabric designs!!! :) hehe. I can’t wait to use my very own fabric in my projects!!! Thank you Spoonflower! And, by the way, here’s a plug for myself…if you want to buy any of my fabrics, you can get them on Spoonflower in my shop. Here is the link: http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/kristinbell. I think I get 10% of the purchase price or something, but if you do buy any fabric, I’d love to know and would love to see anything you make with the fabric! Okay, plug over! :)
This is my newest drawing, the martian-naut. He lives on Mars and is ready and waiting to greet Earth visitors. We better get there before he gets too old!!!
He’s for sale at my Etsy shop here : http://www.etsy.com/listing/82087266/martian-naut-space-print-from-original
“Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void” by Mary Roach will probably make a wanna-be astronaut out of you if you aren’t already! Simply put, this book is FANTASTIC! I fell in love with the idea of space travel all over again. Roach’s writing is top notch and very humorous. This book was a joy to read and it makes me want to have a bake sale to help fund space missions or something. People often ask “why go to space when there are so many problems on THIS planet?!?” and I think that Mary Roach has an answer for them. Get this book and read it! I can’t imagine anyone not loving it! ( )
