We hope to fill this stormy Saturday with brightness & cheer! I mean, when you're walking downtown for a coffee and some cake...don't curse the winds that flip your giant umbrella inside out...thank them for helping out in your game of Mary Poppins charades! Yeah right, imagine being that ecstatically happy?! I praise those who can.
Earlier today Aaron had the inside out umbrella trick played on him...and though he may not have pretended to be Mary Poppins...he also didn't get scornful. He just got an extra chocolate chip muffin and hurried home to play with these brand new full color stickers of ours. I know I claim to be super psyched by a million things per day but these really are exciting. And for a ton of reasons...mostly because they mark just the start of great things to come. A change of direction for us. We're thrilled to now put our artwork in your creative hands. Sticker sheets are just the beginning. Paper packs are on the way...pre-made scrapbooks and Art Journals...kits galore...and plenty of tutorials to go hand in hand with our elements.
Teaching classes at art retreats changed our perspective big time. Being an artist can be a very lonely existence. I know you guys that punch in at an office are rolling your eyes at the gal that gets to work in her PJ's. But the grass really is always greener. Sometimes...most times...it's essential to get out there and see people. It recharges your soul and certainly kick starts creativity. That's why we're taking back home with us the experience of teaching. We love the idea of the art going further...taking elements and putting them in your hands...continuing the story...passing the baton.
Of course we just had to start with sweets...our classic cupcakes, baking gals and kitchen implements...and a pink & cream scallop awning thrown in as a lil bonus. Check back very soon for some projects we made using these stickers. We can't wait to see what you guys do. These are in the shop now and lots more are on the way!
Ok...now for the big announcement! The winner of our Cuttlebug giveaway!! I've been receiving entries for two weeks now and as I've been reading the comments coming in I so so wish that I had a ton of these to give away. But alas, there is only one...and therefore only one winner...drumroll please:
Please contact me with your mailing address and we'll get your prize shipped out! Congrats!!
Ok, back real soon with some sticker artwork fun! xoxo, Jenny
