I've been designing and making lots of new products for the shop that I'm so excited to share! The newest arrival in the shop (just listed a couple days ago) is my new Dachshund Love fabric print. Available in black + white with red hearts and coral pink + white with black hearts. It's so cute, I can't wait to sew something with it!
Also new to the shop is the start of a new collection called Mod Home. The collection will consist of housewares and accessories that are cool and contemporary with a touch of retro style. They'd look great in a sleek mid century home or a cute, colorful apartment.
My first new products in this collection are sets of 100% wool coasters. They're screen printed by hand in two different designs - Power lines and Boomerang. A cool feature of these is that they work great individually but can be fit together to make a larger 8" square trivet.
There are a few new greeting cards on the scene in the shop, too! Mother's Day and Father's Day are approaching, so I made new cards for the occasions. I designed this "time to party" card for all of those other special times. It features three Nelson-esque clocks with a bit of confetti and hand lettering.
Sometimes the best thing you can do in a sucky situation is acknowledge it. Did your friend just get dumped by someone they didn't really like that much? Pull their groin playing basketball? Get a really bad haircut? Send them this card and let them know that "that stinks!"
Last but not least, I have 3 new rubber stamps! They're based on my travel illustrations, with an Italian Vespa, Double Decker London Bus, and Eiffel Tower. They're perfect for adding some European flair to your mail and paper goods.
That's all the new stuff for now. I'm working on lots more, but they'll have to be put on hold for a bit while I get ready for Craftcation! This time next week I'll be hanging out with lots of other creatives in Ventura, learning a bunch and crafting as much as possible. I'll also be teaching my simple screen printing workshop, so I can't wait for that! If you're going let me know. I'd love to meet you!
