a new adventure

We had an amazing Columbus Day weekend. This is the beach at Swampscott MA. That is Boston in the distance on the right of the photo.

Okay, I’ve got some big news. Drum roll please!

I have signed a licensing contract with Land Of Nod so at this time next year, if all goes according to plan, there will be *something* in their catalog of my design. How fantastic is that! The exact nature of what I am working on with them is all hush hush for a while, but obviously, when the time is closer, I will be shouting it from the rooftops! I am excited and nervous about heading off in this new direction. Deep breath! This has been brewing since Renegade in Chicago. As I often repeat to myself, you never know what will happen (or who you will meet) when you leave the house. Hurray!

The weather has been beautiful. Here is a garden photo to end this post. Asters and seed pods of butterfly weed, alyssum in the background.

Now, back to the studio. The Holidays are right around the corner!

    Meu nome é Adriana e moro na cidade de Santos, litoral do estado de São Paulo, no Brasil. Navegando pela internet acabei entrando no seu blog e fiquei apaixonada pelo seu trabalho que considero o melhor que já vi deste tipo.
    Me desculpe estar escrevendo em português, é que não sou muito influente em inglês. Acho que se você usar um tradutor não vai ter muita dificuldade em entender o que escrevi. Mas o que eu mais quero que você entenda é o que já escrevi: seu trabalho é fantástico e é uma pena que eu more tão longe, pois gostaria de poder fazer uma entrevista para o estágio que você propôs. Os meus bonecos prediletos são os tatuados, simplesmente o máximo!.
    Então é isto Mimi, parabéns pelo magnífico trabalho.

    (espero que aceite os beijos, pois apesar de não nos conhecermos, nós brasileiros temos o costume de beijar e mandar beijos para quem nos identificamos logo de cara)
