Santa's Meerkat Helper

Here's my newest Christmas card. I had some people (okay, A LOT of people) stop by my booth at craft shows or email me and ask if I had anything with a meerkat on it. I tried to pass off a lemur as one, but they were wise to me. So to make everyone happy, I made a Christmas meerkat card. Of course, once the holiday's over, I'll be meerkat-less again, but until then...enjoy.

Handmade Bridage of Orange County Indie Holiday Craft Show

Mincing Mockingbird and I have a busy schedule of craft shows this holiday season. The upcoming one is the Handmade Brigade of Orange County Holiday Indie Craft Show on Sunday, Nov. 1 from 11 - 5. We're pretty excited because it'll be the first time we get to break out the pink feathered Christmas tree to hold ornaments. Now I just need to get busy as I only have six ornaments done and it's going to look a little bare. Stop by and say hi!

Isn't Every Creative Type the Black Sheep of their Family?

Just finished this card to add to my comic collection. Hopefully this holiday season I'll get a small booklet of them together.

In other news - we just put our deposit in for our National Stationery Show booth. Yes - after swearing we'd never do it again because it almost killed us, like a mother after the birth of her first child, we forget all the work and just remember the afterglow of sales. At least this year we've already worked out a lot of the kinks and just have to improve upon our booth and product. And, since that was our first trip to NY, we're a little more savvy about the location and logistics of the Javits Center. Stay tuned, and I'll try to keep this blog a little more up-to-date on the trials and tribulations of a small art and design studio.

Meerkat & Mockingbird at the Rose Bowl!

It's so sad how I've neglected my blog. So I thought I'd at least better post that Mincing Mockingbird and I are going to have a booth at the Rose Bowl Arts & Craft Show which takes place in conjunction with the Rose Bowl Flea Market this Sunday, Oct. 11 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. in Pasadena. There will be some new cards and larger prints (11 x 14). Come on out and look for something old or new that you never knew you needed, but now can't live without. For more info click here.
