Custom Orders

I just completed my first custom order.  It was for a friend who wanted to buy her niece something special for her first birthday.    She was going to buy something I had already made but then I asked her for a suggestion for a new series.  She said her niece goes to the family house at the beach every summer and loves it.  Something to do with the beach.   I came up with this cute little  series.   The first one is called "The Hamptons Beach" and the second one is called "Malibu Beach".  The ones I made for her were in pink to match the baby room.  I've created them in a multitude of colors to match any room.  (Teal is going in my bathroom).  There is a third beach to come.  How can I have a beach series and no palm trees?  "Palm Beach" will be created very soon!

From Baby to Boomer...

Last week I was representing all age groups at trade shows in Toronto.  

Skårt helped add a little fun to the Savvy Mom booth at the Baby Time Show.  If you look closely you can see my pink  Dandelion set hanging in their mock laundry room set up.   What was great about this set up is that not only did thousands of people see my art, but also, Savvy Mom decided to make Skårt Shop their pick of the week on their website.  Great exposure to moms all over Canada!
On the other end of the spectrum, I designed all the promotional materials for friends who have a great start up company called Linking Boomers, a social community site geared at the Baby Boomer generation.  Linking Boomers staged a major appearance at the Zoomer show. As you can see below, my banner was there front and center to greet people as they came through the doors.

Hot of the presses -- my new promo cards are in!

I have 1000 of these babies.  Now I just have to figure out where to distribute them.
