Bright and Beautiful!

Over the past year Dottie Designs (ergo me) has been super busy.  Midnight to bed, no time for a sandwich kind of busy!  Now don't get me wrong that is great and pretty much where I want to be!

However, every now and then I have felt a bit like a production line churning out the same designs and personalising them.  So in September I made the bold decision to put my prices up a bit and to try to step away from ebay which has remained my busiest outlet for the last 4 years.

The upshot is that my work has been steady, profit higher and I even managed some home cooked meals and early nights!

Work/Life balance restored it has left me time to play around with new designs.  Whilst most of my commissions are for Weddings and Christenings they are generally white in background so it was lovely to make some bright and funky designs!

I love the different textures here and the black/red makes it a little gothic perhaps!

Brand New and not for sale anywhere yet, I love these shiny pink boxes which would look good in any girl's bedroom!

This uses Amy Butler Papers and  looks a little autumnal I think!

Doesn't get more girlie than this!

More Amy Butler papers, this time on a keepsake box! 
So there you go!  Some bold designs to brighten up your day!

Have a great weekend!


  1. it's difficult isn't it, I love colour (and alot of it) but that is not necessarily what sells, I can feel like a bit of a production line sometimes too!

    I'm happy for you that you have found a balance, I love your new stuff :)
