Happy 2012!

Boy, I feel really great about this year!  How about you?

I had a super-busy holiday season.  Not only did I spend some nice time with family and friends, I also worked my little heart out creating these:

And these:

You are looking at over 500 fat quarter sets (each set containing 2 fat quarters) put together from four of my fabric collections.  I shipped these to Utah last week where they are being assembled as part of the Alt Summit gift bags!!  And the best part is, not only are these fabrics traveling to the summit, I'm going also!

What a great way to start off the new year, don't you think?  I'm looking forward to meeting new people and making new friends.  I'm looking forward to learning, growing and getting inspired.  Oh, and I can't wait to wear some of my fun winter clothes! 

Putting these together was a lot of hard work.  It was also incredibly enjoyable and rewarding.  It was a nice thing to do during the time of year when I usually do a lot of reflecting.  Looking at all of these made me feel great about the journey I've taken in my art career.  Seeing all of the different fabrics, all the different colors and designs--well, it was just nice.  And it made me feel really proud!  I'm so happy to have the opportunity to share this work with a new audience!

By the way, are you guys using Instagram?  I am, and I am loving it!  Here are a few shots I posted while I was making these.  If you are on Instagram, follow me and I'll follow you back.  @jeneanmorrison

If you follow me, you will not only see the things I'm working on and the places I'm going, you'll also be seeing quite a bit of this sweet guy:

I try to limit the photos I post of him, but he is always striking such cute poses!  It is hard to resist sharing these.

I'll be Instagramming (and tweeting, of course) while on my trip to Alt.  Oh, and something else really cool is happening--there is a Minted meetup in Salt Lake City on the Wednesday before Alt Summit.  I can't wait!  More about Minted in my next post!

If you are going to either event--the Minted meetup or Alt Summit-- let me know!  I hope to meet as many of you as possible!  Best wishes to all of you for a wonderful new year!
