There'll be some sweet deals on my artwork, and the quantities are limited, so I don't know how long they'll last. It's gonna be exciting, that's for sure!
CLICK HERE to go sign up. Really. You won't regret it.
Like I mentioned last week, my good friend Khristian Howell organized an amazing artist auction this holiday season, all of the proceeds of which will be donated to charity. (Because it's good to give back, yo!)
Well, the auction begins TODAY! In fact, you can head over and bid on the first set of artsy items right now. I've got some coasters in the mix today:
There will be a new batch of wonderful items to bid on each day starting this morning, and the auction will run for one week. 100% of the proceeds will be donated via Charity Choice to the American Humane Society, Toys for Tots, and the American Red Cross.
Please help us to spread the word via Twitter and Facebook! You can even use the promo flyer above to use on blog posts about the event if you'd like.
The highest bidder for each day's auction will get a fantastic new treasure (and can also feel great for helping contribute to these amazing organizations who act in the spirit of giving each and every day.)
Here's to a happy and healthy holiday season full of generosity and good cheer. :)
A giant box was delivered to my doorstep last week holding all my samples from Oopsy Daisy / Wheatpaste. I tore it open and threw all the packaging on the floor while my husband looked on amusedly (hoping I was going to clean up my mess afterwards, I'm sure), and then I proceeded to show him each and every one that I pulled out of the box.
They are so fabulous in person! Each canvas measures 24x24", so they're nice and big. I'm going to find some spots around my house to hang them to liven things up around here a bit. Our house could use it!
You can pick up one of these bad boys right here-- they're $139, which is a steal, considering that an original painting of mine this size would cost upwards of $800.
The holidays are coming, and these would make lovely gifts for the art-lovers in your life, if I do say so myself! Wouldn't they look so dramatic and inviting sitting under a Christmas tree with a bow?
I'd love it, too, if you'd like to share this post with anyone you know who might love the stretched canvases-- you can tweet about it or facebook about it using the buttons below, or forward this email to a friend! Thanks!
I went on a whirlwind 36-hour trip to Houston, Texas on Friday for Quilt Market, and all I can say is WOW. I came home on Saturday evening, and I can honestly say that while I was half asleep on the flight, there were patterns and colors swirling through my head the entire plane ride. It was color and pattern overload at this show! And I can't even begin to estimate how many quilts were in the building-- it was insane. I'd never been to Quilt Market before, and I definitely want to go back. I'm not a quilter, but I do love me some fabric.
It was exciting to see my fabric right on the front of the booth when we walked in-- see my name up there??
And all 3 colorways together:
If you want to carry the fabric in your shop, contact Blend-- they'll get you all set up!
My friend Sarah Watts has a collection with Blend, too, and it's adorable:
And so does my friend Jules Davis:
Her patterns are so cool, full of bugs and hidden animal shapes within the patterns!
I'm glad to be home now, though-- that was my 5th trip away since mid-September, so I'm ready to stay put for a few weeks!
It's almost here! I'm headed to Houston for Quilt Market on Friday (for the first time ever) to celebrate the launch of my new fabric company, Blend Fabrics, and I can't wait to see my newest fabric line in person! It's called Preeti and will be available in 3 colorways. It'll ship to stores in January 2012!
I'm not generally a beige lover, but I love how this colorway turned out-- it's so soft, and it could be mixed so easily with all the other fabrics in the collection. One collection is pink-based and the other is blue, so they mix quite nicely.
Anyway, these are just a couple of photos.... I'll have more next week for sure, plus inspiration from Quilt Market. I can't wait to see the Amy Butler booth! I hear it's always incredible.
