Happy Sunday to you!
I'm hoping yours was nice and relaxing! Mine, of course, was busy busy busy. Business has grown a bit since this time last year, so I am scurrying around to prepare lots of things for the holiday season.
Three more fairytale portraits are in the works. New printable stationery sets are being dreamed up. Also on the drawing board are: special holiday notecard sets, regular holiday cards and holiday postcards, new sticker packs, new personalized bookplates, 2010 calendars and a bunch of new mounted prints.
So yeah, it's getting busy around here and weekends are just additional work days. But it's all good, because I love my work :)
With all this concern about the holidays I almost forgot about Halloween, but I did release a new Halloween print on Friday:
The Boo Crew is currently available as a limited edition 5x7 print. You can purchase it now through Halloween on October 31st.
And finished up and released today:
This is something that's been dancing around in my head for awhile now, a simple but colorful calendar that you can print up yourself. Each page measures 5.5 x 8.5 and they all feature bright, modern graphics.
No worries for those who aren't into the print-your-own stuff, I've got TWO printed calendar designs planned as well. I'm planning on one 5.5 x 8.5 twelve month calendar featuring Kokeshi dolls and one small 3.5 x 5 twelve month calendar featuring forest creatures.
Both new calendars are going to feature entirely new illustrations so it's a pretty large undertaking that I wanted to have finished like yesterday, but the end results are always worth the hard work!
That's it for new stuff.
Now I'm off to relax for a few minutes, then catch up on Etsy feedback, work on some new drawings and freelance projects, and plan a big day of packaging orders tomorrow!
Oh and. . .
PS--The BIG PRINT SALE is continuing through September 6th! So all $20 prints are still marked down to $17 :)
