Ano, any one can order from spoonflower, any design, in any incarnation, as much or as little as you want.


Thanks Marlene for looking. I appreciate that you also left me a nice comment which poses a question for me,,,,. Its interresting to hear that what I do is seen as merely craft because I dont do crafts. I design stuff then I problem solve its construction and execute the process of making it. Other artists do it all the time without being called crafters. Making mugs is way more of a craft project than anything I do. If I were working in set design doing the exact same thing would that be considered crafting?
Having the ability to problem solve a variety of project ideas ( basically anything I think up) makes me way more of an artist than alot of posers who turn out over priced crappy paintings and have money comming out their butts. Plus dont we have a couple of queens around here already.

You are so right Dawn, "craft" is not a good word for what you do. You are the consummate artist. No offense intended, I love all of your work. Obviously I need to upgrade my vocabulary.

My stuff is "crafts" no great talent in things I make unfortunately.

Dawn~
You are an amazing ARTIST!!!

I have a real problem with using the word "crafter". My ex would often comment on the creations that I would make, saying that I "made crafts", with an obvious air of denigration. It didn't matter it I received money for them or they were gifts so that we paid a fraction of the price for them, no matter how much the recipients valued them. They were "crafts" & therefore "worthless".

I feel your pain.

Dawn, thank you. Thanks for continuing to post your work, absolutely love the style and feeling of it all!

Strangely enough, I had just cut out a room divider form I had once seen in Palm Springs and saw you had something similar on your wall:



Curious if that a piece you created or a vintage one?

Thanks again!

Gorgeous pieces. Rugs, too? Can't wait to see it finished- love that your work encompasses a (large) number of different mediums, wow!

Thanks for posting. I'm figuring out which fabric to choose to be used as wall covering- perhaps the Abstractiva, Matuku, or your signature Kukui. Might have to choose a few to highlight different areas... as well as to make some bar seat cushions.
