Happy Friday! As I have been waiting patiently for these babies to come, I have been busy in the studio getting our October release finished and our January release started! This will be the first year we have ever done a little October release of new product, but we are trying it out. We want to keep our shops full and happy with new fun things as we careen into the holiday season. It is also a more reasonable pacing for me. We will try it out and see how it goes!
The good news for you is that you get sneak peeks of things you don't have to wait until January for! A tiny bit thrilling isn't it?
I am pretty excited about this launch. I started by updating an old favorite of mine (this is the laptop skin that I have on MY laptop…). I first made this artwork in 2002 before Curly Girl Design was but a twinkle in my eye. I still love the artwork, and the general vibe of this piece, but you can see how my illustration style has changed over the years, and I wanted to keep this one current.
The one up top is a slightly more graphic and modern version that I hope still has the same whimsy that the older one did. I am really happy with it…I kinda think the canvas version will be a perfect addition to my little girl's room someday…or maybe her Mamma's…
I would love to know what you think!
A little baby update: they are still in there, sitting tight. I am 37 weeks on Sunday and they won't leave them in there past 38 weeks… so hopefully they will make their debut sometime this week! Or we are goin' in after them. I am starting to get a little crabby and dear sweet Lord do I feel humungous! My skin is itchy and my feet look like Shrek's. I think it is safe to say that I am ready for them to come…my Mom gets here tomorrow…so anytime after that. I welcome all prayers, juju, good thoughts and positive vibes for a safe and healthy delivery! Thanks to those of you who are checking in! xo
