Happy belated Thanksgiving to my U.S. peeps! Â Hope it was a lovely, relaxing, and filling holiday. Â I meant to say thatÂ before it actually happened, but it got a little lost in the shuffle. Â Speaking of lost shuffling, I have to apologize to those of you who signed up at OhioMart — somehow I convinced myself that I added you to the list when in fact I had left the sheets in the folder, which was left in the muddy bin that I subconsciously chose to ignore for as long as possible. Â If you want a peek at what you missed, here are a few recent newsletters: Â Start to Finish,Â Saturated color
Remember that Box?
Remember the Cleveland Skyline box above? Â I am so pleased to announce that it is going to be on TV! Â It was purchased by the producer of Parenthood, on NBC. Â Of course this was a complete surprise — not only that the box will be on a TV show, but that “Parenthood” is apparently a drama, not a magazine about raising babies (where have I been all these years?). Â I tried to find out which episode, but they cleverly dodged the question — so all I know is that it will be in Season 3. Â If any of you are avid watchers, please let me know if you see it!!
On a related note, said pencil boxes have been selling faster than expected! Â I have a handful left in stock, plus a few of the business card sized boxes. Â I’ve had a lot of interest in people giving them as holiday gifts — but here’s the tricky part… they take about 2 weeks to make from scratch, because I have to order the box part from the woodworker. Â So in order to have them shipped in time, I have to order themÂ now — which meansÂ I’m guessing at how many you might want. Â So if you were THINKING of buying one as a gift, would you be so kind as to send me an email? Â You don’t have to commit to anything — if you change your mind, just let me know. Â But that way I can guarantee I will have one in stock for you, ready to go :) Â (Want to buy one today? Â Click the picture above and I’ll ship it out tomorrow!)
I know it’s still early in the gift-buying season, but it is already frantic here in the studios! Â November was a record month, and custom orders are quickly filling up December. Â So here are some deadlines to keep in mind:
Hannukah gifts ~ please order by December 7th (U.S. shipping)
Christmas gifts, outside of U.S. ~ Priority International (~ $14) is available for orders placed through December 7th — please email me directly instead of purchasing through the website so I can adjust the shipping :)
Christmas gifts, within the U.S. ~ order by December 10th (all items shipped via Priority Mail)
Take care, and have a great week! :)
