good to be back...

It snowed the day before the big move... and it has been snowing (and occasionally raining) almost every day since. It's a true winter scene outside my window right now.
The move was long and hard. I'm grateful for the tremendous help from friends and family:) Without them it would have taken another two weeks. I've pulled every muscle in my body - but it was totally worth it. The new place is silent, solid and all mine! And - there's no dangerous black mould in the walls! What a nasty surprise that turned out to be when I've moved the furniture in my ex-bedroom:( No wonder we were feeling slightly off lately... Here's to a healthier winter!
There's still lots of little things to be done (a few more boxes to unpack, a few more things to hang and clean) but It's all small potatoes compared to what went down in the past few weeks:)
+ I can't wait to fill the walls with artwork:)!
Oh... and here's my new wintery pattern inspired by the weather and the anticipation of the impending holidays:)
It's good to be back in the land of blogging and working.

Hope you'll stay out of the mould and keep being creative. And that the snow will keep on falling - because your pattern is just lovely. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow ... ;)

I went through the same this day last year! It rained all day and all my stuff got soaked :( Hope you settle in soon, and I'm sure you'll make your new place beautiful xxx

I LOVE these patterns! Your trees are amazing. In San Francisco the only time I get to see trees that look like that are in hotel lobbies in December.

I miss snowy trees.

And you!

Glad you're moved. Hope you make it back here in 2011.

Good Luck in your new house! I hope you will be happy (and warm!) there. We have snow here in England now, which is pretty unusual for us!

Okay. Helen. I absolutely love, love, love your patterns, art work, characters, ect. Where can I find them? And in what capacity do they exist? Fabric? Wrapping paper? Prints? Help a sister out.

Sincerely,
