I have to give you a sneak peek of our new Christmas line of goodies.
There's lots more coming (I'm sooo excited to show off our new line of brooches, especially our jolly line), but that's all I'll show for now. There. That's done with--now to get back to Halloween!! :)
Aside from Christmas, Halloween is my favorite holiday. I love the magical side of it, the bright orange pumpkins with their flickering grins, the crisp feel to the air, the leaves on trees that turn different colors every day, chocolate cupcakes with little candy corn pumpkins decorating the tops, and the thrilling search for just the right costume for that special night.
We recently stopped by one of our favorite haunts, "Roger's Garden," at Newport Beach. I love the vintage-inspired treasures they featured for this year's displays.
Halloween just wouldn't be Halloween without my favorite character--
That's right, the legendary Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow.
Well, aside from getting ready for Halloween (spooky posts to arrive soon) I have a few more original paintings up in the shop! And what with the economy being as lovely as it is, I've put them into a more affordable price range (yay!).
Ny little girls have been on a Madeline craze lately, and after reading about pooh-poohing the lions in the zoo for the millionth time, I finally gave into their demands to create a Madeline painting.
I think she may not be the last of my Maddy-themed prints.
And as if I didn't already have enough wishing star illustrations:
Nothing like a little star flying to brighten your day, eh?
Oh, and speaking of originals, I have a particular original I have been working on for the past several months nonstop. This one looks to be one of my best creations ever (there's only two before this that have my undying affection) and it's one that I'm absolutely tickeled to show you. I'll be sharing the details of this magnum opus in the next little bit, so be sure to stayed tuned! :)
Actually, now that I think about it, it's also our first "real" logo. But, I guess that makes it new too doesn't it?
About a year ago, Adam and I were trying to pick out which character seemed most representative of trafalgar's square. After going through pages and stacks of my sketches and paintings for about a week, we finally decided to go with the bunny catching stars and with that, immediately dubbed him Trafalgar.
So now, it is my pleasure to (re)introduce to you, our official Trafalgar of trafalgar's square.
