It’s November!

Wow. It really is… and the amount my heat is running all of a sudden proves it. The trees are starting to look bare, there is frost on the grass in the morning, the Hershey’s Kiss holiday commercial (where the kisses ring like bells… you know that one) has reared its festive head.

I feel like the days since we got back from our road trip have flown by. I haven’t been taking any pictures unfortunately, because either 1) the TSA deemed my camera battery charger to be unsafe in my checked luggage and removed it, or 2) someone working for the TSA or Southwest Airlines helped themselves to a camera battery charger. Lame. I’ve been too annoyed about it to look into how much a replacement costs. Pretty sure someone stole it. Sometimes I wonder how dishonest people sleep at night.

I’ve had a massive list of ideas sitting on my studio table since the middle of summer, and this week I pretty much started attacking it. Maybe it’s the upcoming holiday season that has me super motivated. Or the fact that this is going to be my first real taste of a holiday rush in my shop; last Christmas it was still a baby with a pretty small inventory… this week I went over 400 items. I’m hoping for absolute madness and nights that I’m up until 4am, printing and packing orders, like one of Santa’s elves or something. We will see what happens.

Aside from 9000 photos from the trip, these new prints have been added to my inventory:

“Beware of Artists,” featuring a quote that was the subject of an internet hoax, and one I am a huge fan of. Prints available HERE.

“The Fix.” Prints available HERE.

“Choose Joy.” Prints available HERE.

“Elven Girl.” Prints available HERE.

“I Like Cats,” an idea that’s been in my head forever and modeled after the Le Chat Noir poster :) Prints available HERE.

“Under the Stars,” further feeding my map obsession. Prints available HERE.

“Love Them Anyway,” a beautiful quote by the amazing Mother Teresa. Prints available HERE.

“Run Wild, My Child,” created soon after returning from our road trip. The world is meant to be seen :) Prints available HERE.

“You Are A Soul,” a quote often misattributed to C.S. Lewis. I love it. Prints available HERE.

Seriously I don’t know what is up with the surge of creative energy but I cannot seem to stop making things and I do not want it to stop! 

Sidenote: is it too soon to start decorating for Christmas? After receiving a genius tip from my friend Amber, I went to Kohl’s on Saturday and their Christmas things were 50% off, and of course I had a coupon soooooo things got a little crazy. Seriously. Can I start?
Hope everyone is staying warm and enjoying the fall :)
