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.
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!
Whew! The summer is just zooming by, isn't it? I pulled out my decorations for the Fourth of July yesterday, and realized that my vintage-style Patriotic Paper Chains really didn't fit in with my classic stars and stripes. I figure lots of you might feel the same, so I decided to offer another version of the printable in classic red white and blue! This new version echoes the look of my Stars and Stripes Paper Pack in case you would like some coordinating papers.
The usual drill, just leave a comment on this post (here on the blog) and I'll pop the files into an email. (Remember not to comment using a Typepad profile).
And many thanks for all the Facebook love! The Freebie Hop has been a great success, and the group has something really fun planned for July. Hint: it's inspired by a very special event that should be happening in the UK sometime in July...
It's a summer freebie extravaganza! I've joined a group on Etsy called the Digital Designers, a lovely group of shop owners who each specialize in creating digital products. They have regular Facebook Freebie 'Hops" and I am joining in this latest one. The idea is that you start at one designer's Facebook page, get their freebie, then hop to the next, and so forth. The digital paper set pictured above is my contribution. The theme is Summer Vacation, and we all worked with this same yummy color palette, so all of the designs coordinate:
To get my freebie, just go to my Jenny Allsorts Facebook page and look for the tab that says DD Freebie Hop, click it and you'll see a graphic with a download button and one to click to get to the next designer's freebie (be sure you have 'liked' the page to get the freebie). It just started, and a few players don't have their links sorted yet, so if you hit a snag, use the list below to proceed to subsequent pages.
