Patterned Paper Goods by Bonnie Christine

 Buttercup Blooms 8x10 print by Bonnie Christine

Etsy store Sweet Bonnie Christine opened just a few weeks ago and sells a host of beautiful patterned paper goods. The range is impressive for a new store, and with a good number of sales and excellent feedback already Bonnie Christine's adorable store is certain to be here to stay.

Bonnie Christine is clearly a passionate and driven person. She authors a popular blog Going Home to Roost and, under that name, runs another Etsy store selling hand-made aprons and tea towels. It was soon after beginning those two projects that she followed her long-standing love of pattern into a world of designing. It is easy to see that whatever Bonnie does she pours her heart and soul into it, so it is no surprise that, although self-taught, she has reached such a high level of skill in design. Of her patterns she says:

"I love to weave parts of my life into each pattern, with each one you see you will have seen a little piece of my life and heart."

Here are some more of her patterns - taken from her Sweet Bonnie Christine Etsy Store and from her pattern website:

Bonnie inspires me not just with her charming patterns, but with her enthusiastic approach to life. This is someone I would be fascinated to meet, but California is a mighty long way from Auckland! I am her newest fan and I will enjoy following her career as a designer as well as her excellent blog Going Home to Roost. Pop over and take a look - perhaps download a free desktop calendar for July, pick out a favourite recipe or two, even pick up a few business tips! There's something for everyone at Going Home to Roost. Don't forget to check out Sweet Bonnie Christine, and if you want to see more of Bonnie's patterns, visit her website.

A huge thanks to Bonnie Christine for allowing Kitty as a Picture Illustration and Surface Design Blog permission to publish these images.
