Pinch me...I think I'm dreaming!

Last June I was offered the opportunity of a lifetime...to create a line of home decor products.  Did I just say that out loud?  REALLY...that's HUGE! I have been over the moon about it for months...but cautiously, as I just didn't know how it was all going to go down. I worked many late nights and weekends to pull off the magnitude of this project, and today, I got to see it come to fruition.  My samples were ready to view!  I had no idea what to expect, and so I was floored to see it all come to life. I quickly snapped a few pictures to give you a preview of what we created. I cannot take all the credit as Mark and Kristen Tuttle shopped overseas for what my artwork would be laid into...wooden frames, clocks, marble coasters, frames, wall tins, magnets, wood wall art and more! So together, their choices of products combined with my art...we came up with this:

This is just a sneak peek at the products that will start selling in January at the gift market trade show in Atlanta.
 The Pear stacked wood prints are among some of my favorite pieces in this collection.  Actually...there are three collections if you break it down into Pears, Owls and Flowers, and black and white.
 This is just a small sampling of the owl and flower collection.  These are prints done on metal tins.


This is a close up of some of the flower designs...

 This is a close up of some of the owl prints.  

I'm crazy excited to see this go to the next step...and that is being presented in the VIP International booth in Atlanta at the trade show in January.  Here's to hoping this line will see much success!
