Hello everyone! Jan Hicks here, of Jan Hicks Creates! Welcome to my world! It is a world filled with color, stitching, knitting, color, love and laughter! I currently live on the island of O’ahu with my wonderful husband Mike and our two very fuzzy kitties! Mike currently is a US government employee working here on the island as well as being a successful sci-fi/fantasy author, so if you like that genre, you can find him here. We have two boys who live in Orlando, FL. We also have two very fluffy Siberian kitties named Sasha and Nina.
Mike and I love to travel in our RV, and we love to take pictures of all of the amazing places we visit. This has provided me with a lot of great shots which I am honored to offer to you in the form of cross stitch patterns or as prints or on other media in my shop on Fine Art America.
My designs come in four “styles.” The main choice you have to make is between HiRes and LoRes. HiRes designs are those with more detail, which usually means they are bigger designs using more DMC floss colors. LoRes, then, are smaller designs using fewer colors.
The second choice to make is between Large Print or Small Print patterns. The Large Print patterns have 50 squares across on a page while the Small Print patterns have 80 squares across. I made this distinction to give options for whether you print your patterns out or view them on a tablet. So, if you enjoy paper patterns, and plan to print out your pattern, choose the Large Print option. If you will be viewing your pattern on a tablet, choose the Small Print option. The designs themselves are exactly the same (within the LoRes or HiRes categories) and the price is the same.
Enjoy exploring my shop! I look forward to working with you to create stunning cross stitch designs!
