Welcome to Allsorts, the cheery little blog of Jenny B Harris... illustrator, designer, and generally artsy craftsy person. This is where I share projects, ideas and such, and natter on about this and that. I love all things stitchy, papery and vintage. Pull up a comfy chair and have a cup of tea!
Happy Halloween! I'm almost ready for the little tricksters. Porch is decorated, just need to find my big Halloween bowl and dump in the candy. Oh, the temptation! Toughest night of the year, but I am vowing to be strong and resist! ...even the very dark chocolate... maybe.
We're back from our trip to the Big Apple, and I have lots to tell about that, but I just have to share the best thing that happened while we were there... Nick popped the question and my little Katy is getting married! (let the Pinning begin...)
It's time to get your EEEEK on! The Etsy Digital Designers Team is having another freebie 'hop' exclusively on Facebook, this time with a Halloween scream theme. This Beware Bunting printable is my contribootion... print and hang as a warning to trick-or-treaters with mischief on their minds! The hop will stay up and running until October 31st, so waft over to my Facebook page -->here<-- and scare it up with 48 spooktacular digital freebies. If you get lost, use the DDTeam page to help you get back on track!
Now if you will excuse me, I must head back down to my laboratory, I left someone something on the stove... muahahahaaaaa!
Hellooooo! Yes, it's long lost little me, finally getting back to my poor neglected blog. And I come bearing gifts, two freebies for you... a pair of sweet printable shabby rosy paper chains, ready to print as many times as you like and festoon your own shabby cottage...
And, they just happen to be samplings of two of my new Shabby Roses digital scrapbook paper packs! It all began when I saw some vintage wallpaper designs that reminded me a bit of Cath Kidston. I only planned to make one paper set, but I kept trying out different color combinations and before I knew it there were eight of them! I began to imagine them as sisters living in eight sweet little cottages, each with a rose garden in back. So I named them the Roses: Audrey, Lily, Natalie, Penelope, Olivia, Cecily, Melanie and Victoria Rose. All available in my Etsy shop.
To get your paper chains, leave a comment (make sure you're not signed into typepad) and I will email you the zipped file. These freebies are print-only files so you'll need Adobe Reader to open and print them (download it free from here), but in case you were worried, all the digital paper files in my shop are not locked, so you can open them with any graphics program.
I hope you like them... let me know what you think!
