First off, may I remind you that the Open Studio in Berkeley is happening TOMORROW!
Remember, be one of the first 10 to come say hi to me to win free stuff! I'll be there from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. (For you corgi folks going to Dixon, swing by before or after, love to meet your corgis!)
I finally finished all the holiday goodies I'm going to put up for sale tomorrow. Now I just have to sort, package and label them all, which will probably take a whole day in itself. I also have to put them up on etsy, so my cyber friends don't feel slighted, hee!
Here's a sneak preview:
OK, I know these cards above may look familiar, it's a twist on an old design I had a while back. But this time I found a greater variety in feathers and couldn't help having more fun with them! The first photo almost reminds me of a science classroom project (match the bird to its feather), fun, eh?
This merry little lamb helps remind you what's truly important during the holidays. The rest is all background noise.
The background is printed in silver ink on the gocco, and the lamb and text is letterpressed in 2 colors for a bit of holiday pizazz.
If you're interested, here's what the background noise says:
"Have you seen these doorbuster deals? Make sure you get in line before 3 a.m. to get that HDTV that also microwaves. But try not to get caught in a stampede. Oh, and be sure to get mom that GPS that can tell her where the nearest bathroom is that also rates it for cleanliness. And for Aunt Bertha, let’s get that theater-style popcorn maker that comes with a lifetime supply of butter and a free Richard Simmons video, she’ll be ecstatic. I’m soooooo getting myself that all-in-one fuzzy-logic washer and dryer that automatically sorts clothes by color and material AND folds everything when it’s done. Dad probably has enough socks for the next century, I’m thinking of the Swiss Army Knife with an LED flash light and nose hair trimmer attachment. And are you going to re-gift that rock hard fruit cake you got from Cousin Vinny? Just change the wrapping and give it back to him, he’ll never notice. And have you seen the latest Jack Lalanne commercial ? Do you know that man is 94 years old? Got to get that juicer for grandpa. Your nephew’s been begging for that Destructive Lunatic video game, make sure you get on the wait list for him. Don’t forget to pick up that tempurpedic temperature-regulated dog bed with treat dispenser attachment for Bryson, I’m pretty sure he wants it in the microsuede finish in royal poo color."
Ho, ho ho! Hope you enjoyed it.
