I've been reanalyzing my design collections...and reanalyzing may be more of an overstatement, because I don't think I do much analyzing to begin with. Ideas usually attack at random, and I just have to give them a place to live so they don't argue with the other designs. Like children.
One thing I learned when starting my Etsy shops was that cutesie names are no good. The Internet is about being able to search and destroy...er...I mean, find and create. Right? So a direct and to-the-point name is where it's at if you don't want your shop to be shoved to page 44 in a google search.
Thus my popular "police box on van gogh" and "black and white harlequin diamonds" sorts of names. Kitschy, right? :)
All this to say. I've been updating my collection names to make sure they fit what's in them. For my newer readers who mayhaps haven't seen some of my older pretties that have been around for a long time, make sure and check out my shop by collection. I sold some of my first designs on Spoonflower in the summer of 2012, which is an eternity in Internetland--you may have missed a few!
Additionally, if you have any collections bookmarked, you might want to update those and look around some since I've done some organizing (and will likely do more to make sure things are as easy to find as they should be.

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!
Hi, I'm Kristi! Christ follower. Farmer's wife. Mom. Gardener. Artist.
I love to create surface design patterns and mandalas (and, and and...). You can find my work at the links below. We live on a little 20 acre farm in the middle of nowhere, and that's what I mostly like to blog about. Home, gardening, Jesus, cats. All my favorite things.
Some of my work:

This is one of my most very popular designs. I love seeing my fabric on children's clothing and accessories. <3
