Happy Thanksgiving, my friends! I’m just popping in today to share two quick things with you – a new collection and a FREE printable Thanksgiving card. Yay!

New Collection: Indigo Vibes Watercolor – Summer All Year Long!

Zirkus Design | Indigo Vibes Summer Watercolor Surface Pattern Design Collection : Laptop Sticker Mockup

Sunnies, passport stamps, popsicles, thunderstorms, and swimsuits – all my favorite summer vibes. Well, maybe not swimsuits, because any mama with three kids is WAY past letting it all hang out. September peeking around the corner signals that summer fun is nearly over. As August bids adieu, the days grow shorter, the air feels crisp, and Pumpkin Spice madness surfaces …

Sing for Your Supper – A Modern Farmhouse Print

Zirkus Design | Sing for Your Supper: A Modern Farmhouse Pattern Design - Clock Mockup

I recently read the book The Accidental Creative: How to Be Brilliant at a Moment’s Notice by Todd Henry.

Just before the Thanksgiving holiday break (which, by the way, how was your turkey day?), I booked our tickets for next summer’s big adventure! I know, I know, it hasn’t even hit Christmas yet, and I’m already talking about next summer. Hold onto your Santa hats, though. I promise not to inundate you with summer daydreams and details when you …

New Pattern Collection: Cocinitas – Retro Kitchen Repeats

Zirkus Design | Cocinitas Retro Kitchen Surface Pattern Design Collection Kitchenware Mockups

Raise your hand if you grew up with kitchen appliances sporting colors such as almond, avocado, and mustard. You either loved that palette or gagged every time you reached for a Tab or Hi-C. Though I shudder to think how my refrigerator or dishwasher today would look in any of those retro shades, the nostalgia of mustard and faux wood …
