Whew... I looked at the dates and it's been two months since my last update! For most of that time, new goodies were piling up in my spare room, which made me feel guilty for not working on getting it all online every time I looked at it. So after travel, classes, more travel, and getting through some deadlines, I set aside time (a LOT of time... lol,) over the last few weeks getting it all photographed, packaged, edited, and posted. So now I'm mostly caught up and ready to share!
Here's a little visual overview for you:
Ready for some details?
First up, I'm excited to share a new theme, with lots of gorgeous products to go with it! Fabulous Florals has hit the shop and it includes a collage and embellishment pack, eleven embroidered and embellished trims from India, two styles of washi tape, beautiful flower appliques, and two styles of English scrap, direct from the manufacturer in England.
Next, it's been on my list for a long time to do some type of mini kit, and I'm pleased to share the first four - my Mixed Media Happy Packs! These are available in four themes: Exotic Orient, Irresistible India, Enchanting Elephants (with two colorways to choose from,) and Going Global. Each one comes with a fun matching pouch that can store supplies, be used for gifts, help organize a purse, etc...
There are also seven new Florentine papers available by the sheet, as well as some new sample packs that I've put together so you can get a variety of patterns in smaller sizes.
I've added ten new travel washi tapes, great for traveler's notebooks and travel journals... this includes USA, the UK, the Czech Republic, Italy, France, Greece, Egypt, and a few more in addition to the ones already on the site (make sure you look in Exotic Orient Scenery & Buildings washi tape as well as the Irresistible India washi tape for more travel designs.)
I also added some fabulous new Turkmen and Kuchi products... tribal textiles and beaded trim, gorgeous repousse fish pendants, coin pendants, and I have a new stock of jewelry parts that are perfect for mixed media and assemblage.
There's so much that I can't fit it all in one post! I also added:
- 7 new styles of German Dresden
- 9 new styles of Irresistible India embellished trims
- new Khadi papers Indian cotton rag sketchbooks / art journals
- lots of English scrap to use in collage!
- 6 new skeins of sari yarn / ribbon from Darn Good Yarn
- 3 sari yarn sampler cards
- 3 new Enchanting Elephants embellished trims
- 1 new Proud Peacocks embellished trim
- 2 new Exotic Orient Calligraphy washi tape styles
- 2 new designs of Stupendous Sea Life washi tape
- a new gold foil washi tape alphabet from MT
- a few other Exotic Orient washi tape designs snuck in there too :)
Whew! That's a lot, and it took me a while to get it all done, but I'm excited to have it all available and I hope you love it as much as I do! Now that I can walk past my spare room without feeling guilt from piles of unlisted products, I can get back to making art :D
