Meet Mia!

Thankyou for all your lovely Facebook likes, tweets and comments on the design I posted yesterday! I couldn’t resist staying up until the early hours (again!!! what is happening to me?!!!) to play around with some more ideas.

I am just so excited by this collection and after playing last night, a second collection has now evolved! As promised, above is the second design in the collection.

Here are the two designs I have shown you from this collection as iPhone cases and stationary cards, they are available to buy over at Society6.com/ClaireSmillie

Don’t you just love the direction of this collection?

So many creative possibility’s 🙂

I have other design’s from this collection ready for you, but for now I gotta love ya and leave ya…although if you join me on Facebook or Twitter I *may* just give you guys a sneaky peak later today!



Look who’s changed their Society6 header…so much better!

Roll on September

Feeling SO inspired and motivated right now, I can see GOOD things are going to happen in September…it’s going to be the absolute BEST month!

Last night, I didn’t go to bed until nearly 3am…I didn’t need to…heck I didn’t want to! I was too excited for the ideas that have been whirling round my head…trying to put steps in motion to make them happen 🙂


P.S. That iphone case ^^^^^^^ shown above was my new release last night over on Society6. Go check it out….they are offering FREE worldwide shipping again until Sunday!

WOW! What a great response to the ‘Passion for Pattern’ bloghop that I announced would be re-running in September! I will sit down and send emails back to everybody I have heard from in the next couple of days, so if you emailed me, hang in there….the information is on it’s way to you! I have been asked one question a couple of times….

‘Is the second bloghop restricted to just participants of  ‘The Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design?’ 

and the answer….

Nooo! This bloghop is an open call for any professional or aspiring designers! I would love you to join me and showcase your designs to the world regardless of your educational background. 

So send me an email now at clairelouisesmillie@hotmail.co.uk to register your interest….and don’t forget to tell all your designer friends too!

The more the merrier!

And finally to end this post, just because I can, here’s another new design I created & uploaded to Society 6 this morning! 

Formation iPhone Case

As always (and I’m sure you know the drill by now) its available to buy over on Society 6 along with a shed-load of my other designs!

For me, the freedom that the imagery of birds represent totally calls out to me….so much so, I am *really* tempted to get a bird tattoo on my wrist like Sienna Miller.

Anyhow, daydreams of tattoos aside, I am still on that roll and I am seriously kicking butt this week putting every ounce of energy  I have into some (hopefully) rocking designs. Here is another new design from yesterday, which is now on Society 6.
