Let the holiday prep begin! What?!

Dear Friends,

I cannot believe it is already November!! I've been very busy in the studio getting lots of things ready for the upcoming holiday shopping that is about to begin and for those early shoppers, I have a coupon code that can be used in either my shop or my Etsy shop. Be sure to enter THANKS15 at checkout and receive 15% off your order.

I have lots of wonderful items for all of the people on your list that are looking for something to help them re-visit their wonderful childhood memories in decorating their home with my
wall art prints. Such as this dandelion girl wall art print that was featured in Romantic Homes magazine



or this
little boy and the man in the moon art print, featured in Vanity Fair's Gift guide.



And for gifting those creative and crafty friends with my
adult coloring books. What better way to help get through the sometimes stressful holiday preparations than sitting down with a coloring book to get that relaxing therapy that is so needed at the end of a long day. In fact, I recently read an article  that stated, "The health benefits go beyond relaxation, and include exercising fine motor skills and training the brain to focus.

Doctors have known about these benefits since the early 1900s. Psychiatrist Carl Jung, the founder of analytical psychology, prescribed coloring to his patients to calm and center their minds. Doctors today continue to follow Jung’s lead and still recommend the activity to combat anxiety.

The fact that coloring is structured activates the logic part of the brain, and generates a creative mindset, said New York-based clinical psychologist Dr. Ben Michaelis.

“Because it’s a centering activity, the amygdala, which is the part of the brain that is involved with our fear response, actually gets a bit, a little bit of a rest,” Michaelis said, “and it ultimately has a really calming effect over time.”

Be sure you check out my new short 2 minute video showing the interiors and more information about one of my favorite coloring books, The Adventures of Brandy and Emma that I offer by clicking on the video below.



And for those of you who send out Christmas cards and want to get started early this year, I have a very limited supply of boxed
Christmas Cards left in my Etsy shop. For more details follow the link by clicking on the photo.



In my family, we always read a favorite Christmas book as a family throughout the holiday season. Why not start a new tradition with
ON CHRISTMAS DAY, written by Margaret Wise Brown, author of the wonderful GOODNIGHT MOON and illustrated by me. I have a limited supply of the first edition copies in my shop and will sign each one that is ordered from there.




As we enter into that time of year at Thanksgiving, I want to say just how thankful I am for ALL of you, my wonderful supporters and friends here, that make it possible for me to do what I love and have the opportunity to share it with the world. How could I ask for more?  I am so grateful for each and every one of you!
