Kathy Davis is an artist who believes in spreading happiness which is why her mantra, her personal philosophy and business motto is “scatter joy”. This approach to all things in her life helps her to uplift millions of people each year through her art, including greeting cards. Not only does Kathy offer cards through American greetings, she is also an accomplished fabric designer. Her Journey’s fabric collection is the debut collection in Free Spirit Fabrics and features a wonderful mix of modern yet whimsical patterns that make bright and bold statements. And did I mention it comes in some gorgeous purple hues?
Kathy is also the author of Scatter Joy. This book takes you to the heart of Kathy and her business journey to become one of the best selling designers in the country. I received a copy of this book and was mesmerized. The book itself is a pleasure to look at within as it too is a work of art and the messages within are inspirational.
In Scatter Joy, Kathy inspires and encourages you to find what feeds your soul, and then pursue it with all your heart. You’ll find real life stories of “joy scatterers” and warm, wise counsel on finding joy and happiness – even when things look bleak. Throughout its chapters, Scatter Joy is filled with colorful art, inspiring quotations, and Kathy’s story of how she created the life she longed for – one of passion, courage and purpose. You’ll not only discover what brings you joy, but also how you can SCATTER JOY wherever you go!
Because I can’t sew, although I really wish I could, contributing writer Tiffany was happy to take this collection of fabric off my hands and create something beautiful. Doesn’t her daughter look adorable? Here is what she had to say:
From the first moment I saw this fabric I have felt so inspired. The bold colors, the nice color schemes, the rich patterns and awe-inspiring message of dreams and beauty, how could I not want to sew with this! That wasn’t the problem, the problem was what to sew with this amazing and whimsical fabric!
Working with the fabric was truly enjoyable, as the gentle stretch with the grain of the fabric was just what my little girl loves in a dress, comfort and move-ability. I decided to make my daughter a whimsical dress. I made a smocked dress with cap sleeves and a gathered ruffle on the bottom. I also made an elastic headband that she is wearing in the picture. This collection of fabric was so beautiful, I wanted the dress to reflect the dreamy fabric and create a message of hope and gratitude she can carry with her.
