It really is the simplest things that sometimes click in your mind to inspire a great design! Yesterday I was walking down the road, past a house that I have seen hundreds of times. But on this particular day, I just happened to notice the window grates. Window grates are the metal bars that are common for bungalows or low-story flats where we live. They serve the noble task of keeping out intruders. But what I had never noticed is the unique geometric pattern on these grates. I guess I just always assumed they were all function and no form. It was like stained glass meets metal bars. I really, really wish I had taken a picture, but I didn't have my phone on me. I carefully noted in my head the pattern of triangles and lines, so that I could replicate it later. And here it is - the freshest new design in my Etsy Shop. It could be customized for pretty much any special occasion - bridal shower, birthday party, you name it! But in honor of my little inspiring moment, I did it up as a housewarming party invitation.
Luke and I are married and have four little munchkins that travel the world with us. I blog about living overseas, travel, kids, education and graphic design.
