Thanks so much Melanie!
Fantastic illustrations, great design, love it!
Thank you Wendy, that's a great compliment! I did have FUN with this... although it may be/read a bit on the cheesy side ;)
You've done it again! Clever idea, superb execution, I can smell the old mom and pop gardening and hardware store. Genius!
Thank you kindly Amy! I love the idea of a shelf liner - wouldn't have ever thought of that ;)
Awesome! Retro rules! This would make such a cool shelf liner for a potting bench, or fun fabric for a bag to take to the farmers' market. Very cool. Love the brown version, too!
Thank you very much Amy, Moira and Katarina!
Gorgeous as usual!!!!:)
Great idea! What fun?!
Thank you Amy, Rhonda, Yvonne and Hollyce, your comments were fun to read and very much appreciated! Hollyce, I have gotten so used to drawing with a mouse, that I find it hard to use a pen/tablet. I simply start by drawing a rough outline (plotting nodes) and then I drag/stretch those nodes/lines, smoothing them out to follow the curves as I go. I add in other lines, other shapes and details once I have finished up the basic shape (in this case) of each tool.
You have my vote! How on earth did you draw this with a mouse? :) Hollyce
I really like this one. It would make a great gardening apron!
I love the playful slogans and wonderful illustrations of your terrific design, Lori!
This collection is totally awesome.....so much retro goodness!!!!!! YAY!
Thank you very much ladies for your great comments and Raven, yes I did!
