Thanks! For a Great Holiday Season!

What I've been working on - a multiphoto baby
announcement.  Just add adorable baby photos!
I've entered a baby announcement challenge and would love some great support.  If you love quality paper, creativity, and hip designs you'll adore

This was a design challenge! There are already so many terrific designs, although the deadline isn't until January 13th.  The first design I came up with was the 'Our Little Angel' design (showed, here).  The challenge rules has a specific category for boy announcements, so I got out my Sharpie (theoretically) and out came Holmes.  Bond was next, and then Kent (see right). I couldn't decide.  The multi-photo category seemed the only choice for me.  Alas, mommy's little angel did not make it (although all the women friends I called chose the angel).
Mom's choice isn't always 
daddy's fave.

I would love to help you create customized announcements (wedding/shower/baby) if you have a special 2014 event, too!  I can be contacted at or at skyedesigns @Minted.  Need any inspiration?  Please see my Pin boards (I've been working on them all month) and they will catapult you into the New Year with amped-up inspiration.

Thanks to all who joined up with Spoonflower after visiting my sites and Pinboards and especially to those who purchased and favorite*d.

design on minted.

Winter Barn Owl Cheater Quilt - It's Finished!

This fabric design started with my obsession to paint birds.  I also love owls.  I just uploaded the last revision.  Here is an example with several pieces put together.  I designed three yards - each a different part in the story quilt - so that each quilt panel can but put together in each quilt made with it's own way.  The trees make a pretty quilted or fibre wall hanging all their own, too.  I'll have a fabric with just the snowy night trees and a half moon coming out soon which work into this quilt great, too, especially if you don't like the barn.

Find Winter Barn Owl Cheater Quilt fabric by the yard, HERE.  Designed by Kara Skye @Raven Art Studio.  Note: the fabric saturation in the image is boosted so that the navy blue does not print out black. 

The image, left, is more true in color to the fabric swatch proof than the image where the fabric is ordered.  In other words, the image has been adjusted to print onto the fabric without losing the color.

New Raven Fabric in Cheater Quilt Panels and Regular Fabric, Too

This is my new Ravens in Twilight cheater quilt.  It has 3 panels with 2 large ravens, each 12" x 12" on a panel that depicts the raven tree.  The secondary image is made up by the remaining panel which is actually 18 x 18".  The six panels form a 4 foot x 3 foot quilt or wall hanging.  (pictured)

I've also just finished up a fabric with only the larger ravens -repeated in half turns, like a regular fabric. Each panel is 6 x 6".  These fabric designs will be available in about two weeks. See Fabric designs I have available now, HERE.
