More press, yay! Canadian Family Magazine

I got pics of my little guys from Canadian Family Magazine today. How fun! They show my bright pink Unicorn and three lion Kitties. It's so exciting to see them in print. Yay!

Y, Z and Uni!

Finally, some new embroidery patterns and Unicorns. The new patterns are the letters Y and Z for Yak and Zebra. And I have a few more that will pop up in the store later in the week. I'll also have more plush Unicorns coming to the store too. For more unicorn fun, take a look at the video (if you're not one of the 41 million who already have). Let's go to Candy Mountain!

No Monster Here on my mind

Today I finished up designs for the activity cards that go along with No Monster Here. I know I have to post more from my trips, but I had these on the brain today so I thought I'd share. Everyone who pre-orders the book before Nov 1st will get a set of cards. And after that we'll be selling them as little card sets up in the webstore. Whaja think?

I'm back to blogland. (Sheesh it's been a while)

Hi all. I'm finally back from all my recent trips. Man, what a whirlwind. So, as you know, I went to NYC. After that I was back in Minneapolis for a couple of days, then to Wisconsin then back to Minneapolis, then to Seattle for Plush You (more to come on this in some later posts), then to Sacramento to sign No Monster Here books with the author, then to the L.A. area to visit the husband's brother, then back to Sacramento, then, finally... back home to Minneapolis. GAHHHHHH! I've never ever traveled that much in a 3 1/2 week stint. I am so tired and the work has piled up back here at home. But I'm ready to move ahead full force on all of my projects. Yay!

Here are a couple of pics from when I was in Seattle and Cali. More from NYC, Plush You, and No Monster Here coming soon.

A traveling food stand shaped like a pig. funny!

PLUSH YOU!!! Super fun. I'll be putting together a post of my Plush You pics soon.

In Sacramento, signing No Monster Here books for everyone who pre-ordered. You can still pre-order here before the end of the month to get your book signed too.
