Ask the Geeky Girls -
Lauren (Lbeth21) from New York asks:
Thanks CC for answering my question about your inspiration. You did answer the question I asked, but I realized that perhaps I didn’t ask the question as I wanted as an answer (welcome to my life). Once you have your inspiration, how do you put that into a pattern or design to make it come to be real? I am inspired by a bunch of things (mostly science-y and nature things), but how do you put that into a design?
