The Days are Getting Longer

Yesterday was the winter solstice, otherwise known as the shortest day of the year here in the Northern Hemisphere.  That means as of today, the days are getting longer.  Maybe that is why this morning  I woke up before the alarm went off, feeling refreshed and enthusiastic.  My head is filled with new tile designs that I am looking forward to sculpting.  Here is a rough doodle of some ideas I am kicking around for new 4"x8"s.

I really like the fist one- four flowers in a row.  Not sure what type of flowers to use yet, but I think it would be fun to repeat that design, and make a flower bed "growing" all the way around a room.  Maybe interspersed with some 4"x4" bird tiles or other flower designs.  More ideas in different sizes and themes to come...

Enjoy the extra seconds of sunlight today, I know I will ;-)
