WINTER PICNIC // New Pillows

I wanted to share a few pics of the HOLIDAY PICNIC 3rd Annual Picnic Holiday Sale that took place here in Portland on Sunday, Dec 11, 2011.

Maslen + girls and I had a blast with YETTI and ended up selling a all time record amount of pillows, paper, frames and calendars! Thank you all who came by and said hello! We had no time to shoot images but here are a few that we managed to get inbetween all the buying, shopping madness!

Happy Holidays everyone! Looking forward to next year!

FINALLY! POP STORE OPENS + New Rounds + Piping + 2012 Flip Wiro Calendar

Okay. So I have been totally insane busy...every client I have has kicked things in high gear, holiday shows, new prints, rounds, calendars and the POP store (100 Commercial Street, Down Town Old Port, Portland Maine...SPACE GALLERY cards---all of it--a great few months of creative surge of energy and production! All of it has come together. After the holiday the girls + mas and I will go on a much earned vaca and escape hopefully to a log cabin somewhere--with  nothing but running hot water and the amazing Maine wilderness. BUT for now, deadlines are soaring and I am on top of it--(and will pass out from all of it and take long naps with the girls and drink loads of hot tea very soon!.

Please stop by the POP store that is only open through the holidays...a great collection of fine art, photography and hand made goodies from local MAINE designers....and a 10x6 space for all my new prints and 15" pillows as well as the new recycled oatmeal fabric that is super amazing. (woven in the USA, recycled soda bottles, poly and cotton.

Check out the new ROUNDS. I have been fine tuning these babies for half the year. Not sure what the deal was, but they were much more complicated then I thought even though I found a vintage one that I tried to mimic. I can't tell you how much fun I had when Mas brought them home finally from my stitcher...the piping was a major concern and I am in love with the random color of mixing piping and prints...

The calendar is HERE and ready to go! CLOSE BUY catalog has closed and I have a limited supply of these little gems. I really love the silver wiro. It added a ton on cost but hopefully folks will like the simplicity and ease of it. Maggie Hoople at East Shore hooked me up with PRINTING--super amazing quality. If you ever need help sourcing anything PRINT related contact her. She is amazing and a dear dear friend/mentor. I love her.
