I think I’m getting the hang of working my shop stuff in around nap times. It’s a bit of a dance but, when I finish a project, the feeling of accomplishment is all the greater!
Today I posted a new design. I love the look of Chinese calligraphy, so I like to use the Chinese New Year as an inspiration for incorporating Chinese characters into my designs. I’ve got a rabbit onesie that originated with the year of the rabbit, and now I have a striking, yet simple design for this, the year of the snake: I love it!
A while back, I was reading on the Etsy blogs about upcoming trends and was particularly grabbed by the suggestion of doing something related to the upcoming Chinese New Year; the Year of the Rabbit.
I’ve always thought that Chinese calligraphy was beautiful and am excited about the idea of incorporating some into one of my designs.
This is all still in the development stages, so I don’t have any pictures to post yet. But I’ve completed the design and have a shirt all primed and will be printing it in the next couple days, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, here’s a treasury collected from all the beautiful items on Etsy with a similar theme:
