I have been trying to track down the information about the incredible artist who created the beautiful girl silhouettes that we are using in our catalog...I've gotten lots of emails about it....and I totally want to tell you about him/her as soon as I find out everything I know. Aren't they wonderful? I completely fell in love with them when we found them. All I know is that he/she goes by "Chuwy" in the art world...I have emailed and called to find out more.....and as soon as I get something solid, I want to profile him/her on my blog.......I love the girl because she just is so happy and looks full of goodness......she was perfect to put into the setting of our new stuff......***So excited, I just got an email from Maria (she goes by Chuwy or Chu Chu), the artist that we bought the girl silhouettes from. When we bought them, it was very vague about who the artist is. It was so nice to connect with her! She is from Spain and now lives in Mexico as a freelance graphic designer. She and I are talking about doing some more projects together! Anyway, I have a bunch of interview questions out to her and I asked her to send a photo and so when I get all of that, I will share it with you!
AND....we are having so much fun here in the studio...making big huge chandeliers to hang in the booth....well, actually they are only 20" x 20" -ISH....but you GOTTA come to the booth and see these in person....we are even giving 4 of them away to the people who find the most secret messages in our catalog!!!! This show is going to be phenomenal.
I just want to say THANKS to everyone who has sent beautiful emails and notes and even the very special person who sent me flowers to congratulate us on our new catalog....we are SO EXCITED for everyone to see our beautiful stuff in person. WE HAVE THE MOST INCREDIBLE TEAM!! And I am thankful every day to work with such fabulously creative, kind and forward-thinking artists and innovators.
More to come...including part II of "Closed for Restoration"
