Another Alphabet Print Colour Combo!

blue

You guys are quick - the minute I posted about the Sherbert style below, I had about 5 e-mails within the hour asking if I was going to do a more "boy" theme. Wowza. ;) Anyhow, it was in the works, but then my camera battery died, and then I ran out of paper yesterday - not all was going well.

Then, when I was browsing Etsy, I saw someone (who will rename unamed) directly copying my beautiful Alphabet print. Just changed the font oh, so slightly. My heart sank. As I "tweeted" about to my fellow Twitter people, I'm all for creative inspiration - Artists find inspiration from everywhere - even other artists, however directly replicating someones work is not only hurtful, but very much illegal. Yup. That big bad word. I sent her an e-mail, she apologized, and then remove her prints, but it left me feeling pretty sad. But as I said, she removed them, so I moved on.

Alas, today everything fell into place, and here is the new print!

  2. That is very sad about the person copying. :( Love this color scheme! Now I'm having a tough time deciding which color I need for my room! I think I am leaning towards the multi-colored still, however because then I can get the number print to match!!

  7. I started reading your blog yesterday & have been reading it whenever I get a break from my 3-mth old and 3-yr old. I'm thinking of getting each of them an Alphabet print now - they're so wonderful!

  11. I love this colour combination, but now I don't know if I want the multi-colour or this one for my little boy's room :)

    Also, what happened to your "modern block" style alphabet print? I didn't see it on Etsy ? And are you able to make these alphabet prints into a horizontal format?
