SOOO many great things and upcoming events to share with you guys! I’ll just dive right in.
Doodle Bird in Minneapolis has requested calendars, coasters and holiday cards to stock their store for the holidays! I have a few cards and prints already in this awesome little local shop and I’m thrilled to have been able to expand my line and offer some new goodies there! This also means that I HAVE TO MAKE SOME HOLIDAY CARDS!!! Don’t worry, I have some ideas ;).
I also have a couple other local shops where you may be able to find my holiday cards (more on that later).
Fabrics: Due to the popularity of the Organic Cotton Inky-y Dot scarf I designed, I have some silk scarves and linen napkins in the works! So EXCITED!
Gift Boxes: I have some holiday gift boxes planned. One will be a home/office/student gift set, another for the coffee/tea lover, another for the fashion-ista in your life, and of course for ALL art lovers! Watch my art page for updates.
Don’t forget, you can order your own Ink-y Dot gift wrap here for your holiday gifts. For those of you crafty-types, I bet you can come up with a million other uses for this gift wrap. I’d love to see them!
I’ve also been BUSY BUSY making these coasters:
The square coasters are already available in my etsy shop. The Elm coasters will be making the handmade market rounds with me. If there’s a set you’d like, please let me know.
Mini Art Pieces: These are complete, I just need to get some photos for them and get them in my Etsy shop.
Ornaments: I have no sneak peek, or teaser for you YET, but I will soon have wooden ornaments available for the holidays as well!!!
Phone and ipad cases: YES, I can have different pieces of my artwork printed on these! Message me, email me, or convo me on Etsy and we’ll talk ;).
Heart Strings Line: I know you’ve been asking, and the framed prints WILL be available on Etsy. I’m working on copyright stuff with this line, but I will get them listed in my shop shortly!
I had planned for a rather quiet holiday season, but apparently the Universe had other plans for me! You can find me at the following events coming up!
November 22: Green Oasis Garden Center in Eau Claire, WI. I will not be available for this due to other commitments, but you will be able to find my sister, Sara and my new business manager (niece) Kailey showing off my goodies here.
November 30: Bauhaus Brewery in Northeast Minneapolis at the Made By Hands Holiday Sale Extravaganza. I will have my new Heart Strings line at this venue.
December 6: Tangletown Art Crawl at the Simon House. At this special event, I’ll be showcasing my mixed media creations which I have not shown in public since Art-A-Whirl last May. You can see them in my Etsy shop here. I have big plans for these, but not until next year. :).
OTHER ART UPDATES: If all that isn’t enough, I’ve been up to SO MUCH more! I have a few submissions out for publication, I have some gallery requests out, I have started my Solo Exhibition training with Altered Aesthetics in Minneapolis for 2015, I have some retreats in the works for 2015-2016, and I’ve been completely SUBMERSED in some incredible art courses currently and through 2015.
I’m LOVING my arty life. Thank you to everyone for all your support and love. I love you all RIGHT BACK! ♥
