Thank you all so much for playing along and leaving me a comment on my little Mudpuppy Mermaid Castle giveaway. I loved reading them! As it is Monday already, I went to random.org and it has generated #29 for me... therefore the winner is Shivani (My Owl Barn). Please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your address:)
Today I had the pleasure to receive samples of the Mermaid CastlePlayspace that I've designed for mudpuppy. It turned out great! Me and the girls had fun playing the underwater merfamily that lives in a four room castle with its octopus doors and coral clocks. I've got a few, and so I've decided to give one away! Leave me a comment before Monday afternoon for your chance to win this fun castle:)
November cantine has only got a few drops left in it (although it is using all of it to make as much rain as it can over at my end of the world). Gloomy and chilly. I've chosen a strong, contrasty and cheerful palette for my new print. Begone rainy gloom!:)
I know, I know... It's too early to think of Holiday. I usually wait until December (for Holiday posts)... but this year I started getting e-mails about '2011 gift tags' and 'festive embroideries' middle of November... Therefore, I feel that you are ready to see my latest Target Card!
How often, when you are trying to shop for other people do you come across unexpected treasures that you must have? For me, it's an 'every time' kind of occurrence. Last time it happened I was in Toronto, in a little 'hipster type' store (full of expensive little nothings) when I came across'WILDWOOD'. I have not read any reviews (or even heard of it) but the illustrations (by Carson Ellis - and the book is peppered with them) were just so good - I had to buy the book by it's cover! No regrets. It turned out to be a great read, and I can't wait until the girls read it (ages 9 UP) and we could have a little chat about it:)
I've got some exiting news to share with you!Today, a lovely new wall graphics company Kowallaa opens the 'doors' of it's online shop! The store is full of fun decals (including 3 of my own designs) that would make any kids room instantly funner:)
P.S.: 11 just happens to be my very favourite number:). Good day to start something new!
