Although we are one day away from the second month of the year, 2011 is going to be a time for new adventures into business! I have officially decided to stop dreaming and make my dreams come true (hey, I haven't found a fairy godmother and don't have birds to dress me in the mornings, so it's time to take matters into my own hands). In the next few months, I plan on building my little baby business, Fanciful Ink, and taking steps toward not just making it something I do on the side but rather something that will be a rewarding career. Follow me as I take those steps and figure out what to do next. I hope to nurture it as I would a baby bird and watch it fly!
For now though, here is a little glimpse at my design for fabric (which can be bought at any yardage and many types of materials at Spoonflower!)


  1. Yay Laurie! I know you will succeed because all your designs are gorgeous. love you, and I'm texting you about coffee this moment. it's been too long.

  2. Thanks! I'm excited about it! Coffee is a must.

  3. I love this! I am doing this as well... Though, mine is still kind of a side business.

  4. Your blog is superb! Thanks for sharing...we should collaborate somehow. Thoughts? I'll be thinking. Mine is definitely still a side business as well but nonetheless, I have realized I have to help my dream form itself and I'm fortunate to have a day job and do this. When you love what you do it's a good kind of work!
