a few of my favorite things: socks!

what i did today was very different from what i had planned to. as i was getting ready to continue working on my website, i found out about the Sock It To Me 5th Annual Global Design A Sock Contest. now, there are people who love bags, others who collect shoes, and i love socks. and i really like the ones made by Sock It To Me. these are two of my favorites.

the deadline was today at 5pm, and i had a lot to do, but being a sock junkie i had no other option but to participate. so i came up with these designs, using motifs i had already developed for other purposes.

Sock it To Me competition submissions

"in the dark" was one of the patterns i had entered in the Tigerprint black and white print competition ( and it was selected as one of the top 25 designs), "black bird" is part of my "a day in the life" collection that keeps growing, and the happy snail pattern is from my daughter's birthday invite i had designed back in december. i had shown her sketches of different animals, and i was so happy she chose the snail.

my big dream is to have my own line of socks one day. so wish me luck!
