introducing the gift line!


totally excited to introduce a few more goodies from my partnership with demdaco. these totes, omg! there are a total of eight in the collection, each with colorful art on the front. made from 100% cotton canvas and classically designed, they're perfect for trips to the farmer's market, grocery store, school, the beach and on and on. totally love these.


this one is my fave. i've been using it for quick trips to the post office and i'm planning on using it as my carry on for supplies for an upcoming trip. speaking of art supplies, i am deep into painting and it feels so good to be immersed in glue, paint, and papers. more on that soon.


i'm digging these sweet keepsake boxes as well. we've got six in the collection and i'm thinking they are perfect little gifts, especially if they're filled with notes, candy, or other treasures. love, love, love.


and then the necklaces. i shared these with you already but just want to say again that they are the star of the new collection. double-sided glass pendants. i've been wearing mine paired together...sometimes three at a time. they're a bit chunky which i just adore.

****all of the above goodies are now available in my etsy shop. i only have what's available in my shop today. i do expect to have a few more necklaces soon, but the rest (totes and boxes) are already on backorder until august/september. so, peeps, get em while you can. they all make sweet gifts, both to ourselves and those we love.

*******************COMING SOON********************


i love this image that demdaco sent over...they used it as the cover for their most recent catalog and when i received in the mail, i did a little dance in our living room. the cover? wow. it shows the mugs (which i hope to have soon), boxes, and necklaces along with the canvases. speaking of canvases, i have just a few left in my shop but i do expect to have more soon. my friends are starting to see them in shops and they're calling me with the funniest, most enthusiastic voicemails. totally cracks me up (and makes me smile very wide) every time.


and last, but not least....magnetic bookmarks. super excited about these (there are several in the collection). i'm eagerly waiting for my order to arrive so i can get them in the shop. but i wanted to give you a peek. i think these are my next favorite after the necklaces and totes. really, really.

i can't tell you how fun it's been around here in the mail department. it's like christmas over and over with each UPS delivery of samples, product, even 2010 datebooks and calendars coming soon (can't wait to share those). i would have never guessed this would be my life, but man i am enjoying every square inch of it these days.

in other news, i had a great birthday week. i went to whidbey island to meet mary anne (remember when i told you about her?) and spend some time with her publisher (possibilities, possibilities!). i also went shopping with john and bought a new pair of jeans and some spanx to go with them. and then i had brownies and pizza and coke. later, my sister-in-law took me out to a very interesting + fun evening of entertainment (keeping the details of that one close but it's not what you think). and on and on. it was a good few days and i loved getting birthday wishes thru all lines of communication: texts, emails, phone calls, cards, tweets, facebook, etc - we live in such a fun techno age, i think.

thanks, everyone. i hope you like all the new goodies as much as i do. i really do. again, most of what i shared today is available in my etsy shop. have a peek!
