Moo Mini Cards are my favorite

So glad I signed up for Klout when it launched. My klout has earned me so many perks - these Moo Mini Cards being one of them! I was in need of a fresh new pack of business cards and the perk came just at the right time. All I paid was shipping and for the mini card holder. Of course I had to get bright pink. Why not make a statement on my key ring? Plus I think the color goes well with my cards.

I'm a BIG fan of packaging and presentation. You can see in the photos above how how my cards arrived. The box is sturdy and definitely not a throwaway, and I loved that they came with extra cards with all these cute sayings promoting Moo and their products. If someone handed me one of those and I didn't know about Moo I would definitely order from them! Matter of fact, I already sold See Emm Cee on the mini cards and the card holder after giving her one.

How cute is the very first card in my box? Make your customers feel special, like they are your best friend? Seriously smart move, Moo! Clearly it made an impression. The box even has these dividers labeled Mine and Theirs. And just LOOK at my cards! The quality is great...I love the size and I LOVE that I can print multiple images. So helpful when you are in licensing and don't want to pigeon hole yourself. I show a variety of my work with my cards. Seriously, You ARE my best friend now.

My first magazine feature! - Flow Magazine

A while back I had been approached by an editor at flow magazine, Netherlands about featuring my Sketchbook Project moleskine in an upcoming issue. I had forgotten ALL about it until I received my copy of the magazine yesterday!! Can you imagine how excited I was to open it up?? First of all, the overall design of the magazine is FABULOUS. SO much eye candy. But, unfortunately, I can't read Dutch so I was forced to just admire the pretty pictures. My featured sketchbook project spread is pictured below, on page 15 of issue #6.

It's just a little blurb about The Sketchbook Project, what it's all about and how much it costs to join. but the coolest part (aside from the photo of my book, obviously) is the credit line. (see below) My very first credit line in a magazine! Yay me!! I am soooo international now. LOL.

Inside the issue are also some really awesome freebies! I really need to learn Dutch so I can subscribe to this mag! The first is a pull out calendar and a little notebook with beautiful flower illos, and the second is a free vinyl sticker of a lasercut illustration. Isn't it pretty?? Don't know if you can get your hands on this magazine here in the States, but you can peruse the flow magazine English site and subscribe from there if you so wish. You have to call them direct of you live overseas. They have some really cute downloadables (is that a word?) for personal use too on their site and the Dutch site has a shop! It really is such a well done magazine - so happy I got to be in it! :-)

You can also follow flow on You Tube and Twitter.

Menagerie Collection for Robert Kaufman

A while ago I worked on a black and white animal theme for Robert Kaufman along with other Pink Light Design artists and happily enough they chose to produce my Panda Bear designs! Here are the fabric samples via the Pink Light Design blog. Nina Seven's chicken design was also chosen. Yay us!

The fabric collection will be available in stores starting December so keep your eyes peeled! For now you can view the whole collection over at Robert Kaufman.

Fabric Samples on Pink Light Design's Blog!

Just received an email from Pink Light letting me know about all the samples up on the blog. Two sets of those samples are my fabric samples from Robert Kaufman! Oh happy day!! I can't tell you what a thrill it is to see my name on there!!! Thanks to Pink Light Design for representing me and my work!

The last set of samples is another fabric collection for Robert Kaufman called Garden Walk. So glad it's going to be fabric..I can totally see this as gorgeous throw pillows, can't you?? Now to just teach myself how to use my sewing machine! Hooray for samples! Cannot wait to get these in the mail!!
