(I got so caught up in the holiday that I completely forgot to post this earlier! Oh well. It’s still seasonally-appropriate, and better late than never!)
One of the great things about putting my work out there is when someone stumbles upon it seemingly at random and has an idea for a new and creative way to use it. I was pleasantly surprised when Caron from Green Imaginations, a new printing company based in Portland, Oregon contacted me about creating some custom window clings from my snowflakes desktop wallpaper in exchange for a couple sets of the clings. I’m pretty picky about trades, but this was a no-brainer–I’d even been musing the other day about how my windows needed a little extra holiday pizzaz. I got the clings just before Christmas and immediately put them to work–and I love them! And I’m highly impressed by how well their equipment preserved the intricacy of the designs (my photos don’t do them justice.) Now I’m seriously considering creating a few sets of window cling doodles for different holidays and offering them in the shop next year. Thanks again, Caron!
Hey, look! My Calobee Doodles website design won a free WordPress shirt from wpshirts.com for its creativity in design and use of WordPress. Pardon my geek-ness for a moment, but for those of you who love WordPress as much as I do, WPShirts is all about showing the love–literally. I will wear my new “Powered by WP” shirt with pride.
Speaking of the website, I decided it was time to swap over to the new website design for snow season. It’s beginning to look a lot like winter here! Brrr!
A client requested a fairy-tale, storybook-esque theme for her new business, selling high-end childrens’ bedding and toys. I believe the final project went in a different direction, but the result turned out pretty cute anyway!
Welcome to the new Calobee Doodles website! I am quite excited about this one. The wider layout allows me to post much larger doodles and designs for your viewing pleasure, and the navigation at the bottom is always within reach. I’ve also added a new Wallpapers section where you can find a collection of all the free desktop downloads from this year, as well as a few other features. I hope you’ll enjoy, and if you have feedback, please send it my way!
