Floral Patterns

I’ve been having fun doodling flowers. Since March in Maine looks nothing like spring, I figured I could use some extra color on my desktop while I wait for the real flowers to show.

I’m also putting together a short tutorial on how to create seamless repeating backgrounds like the ones above in Illustrator. Stay tuned!

free holiday desktop wallpapers

I haven’t done these in a while, but I was fiddling around with Illustrator over the holiday break and put together a couple flat versions of an old wallpaper design. Feel free to use as you wish.

mason jars

cute mason jarsSo versatile, and quite trendy as a home decor item right now, a series of canning jars in different states of use — just playing with variations on a theme. I like how this came together. It’s also available in the Calobee Doodles Etsy shop as a print!

It’s been far too long since I doodled something just for me, and my desktop was looking pretty outdated so I thought I’d whip up something quick and fun and colorful. Mmmm, candy. Given how pregnant I am, the subject should come as no surprise. 🙂 Click on each to download and enjoy!

printable advent calendar new in the shop!

Printable Advent Calendar - Page 1

I’m always just behind the times when it comes to holiday shop preparations, it seems. I thought I was finally ahead of the game this year, but then I turn around and Thanksgiving is over and the holiday rush has already begun. How can that be?!? I’ve barely scratched the surface of all the things I wanted to do.

One of the things I did manage to finish this week was a printable advent calendar. My family always had a new advent calendar every Christmas, and it was exciting to open each little door and see what was inside. It kept impatient young minds busy until the arrival of Santa Claus and gave us something to look forward to every morning. The Calobee Doodles printable advent calendar includes easy instructions and a few fun suggestions for use, including a design-your-own option! And for only $5, it makes a great inexpensive gift or stocking stuffer for friends and family. You’ll find it in the Print-a-Doodles section of the shop!
