living in a tent

living in a tent during an art show weekend is a lot of fun. the cool things involve getting to the event before the thousands of people show up, talking to artist pals that we only get to see a few times a year, seeing all of the amazing and inspiring art that artists from across the country create, and smelling the kettle corn get going. guilty pleasures might include watching occasional fights break out (usually among artist couples trying to set up a new tent--funnynotfunny) and gorging on kettle corn.

here's a vintage shot: 2005!!


the bad thing about art shows is the occasional must use porta potties. ugh. ugh. ugh. also, sometimes the hours are long, but really the shows are one of the best times of the year. hanging out with my mom all day is such a treat. also, talking about the things we work so hard to make beautiful is fun. and then seeing our customers come by (new and the loving repeats!) is so rewarding!

here's a shot from artigras 2014.



artigras 2014 down. two weeks: juno art fest by the sea. delray affair: late april.

I'm beyond excited about the new birth announcement posters. I've just started playing around with the designs. Please let me know if you'd like to see another one of my stamps transformed into a poster! The greatest news is that they are all entirely customizable! email me if you'd like to see something new: ingratie@hotmail.com, or check them out at etsy.com/ingratie

we had a warm florida christmas!

 our christmas card--we had a lot of fun dragging our tree over to the beach. the kids couldn't believe we even tried it.
later in december, mom and i had a show at the boca hotel and resort. they set up a pink ice skating rink and we sold a few christmas items in a pretty little tent outside of the pink rink. it was a beautiful show and really got us into the christmas spirit.

now the holdiays are over, and we are in full production mode! there are three fantastic art shows headed our way: artigras, juno art fest on the beach, and the delray affair. come check out all of our new stuff!!

seahorses coming right up


so, my seahorse clothing items are always the most popular. i usually sell out of the little seahorse dresses.
 i have tried out lots of different backgrounds for stamps, but i prefer doing the green kelp, with three tiny seashells up top on the left, and a rainbow of sand dollars across the bottom.
 ellie's been wearing these for years. her picture (above) was even published in palm beach illustrated with a feature on mom and me.
 these cool hoodies were made especially for viscaya, down in miami.
it's a cute seahorse, i've got to admit. so, i'm dragging out my fabric. i've got a huge box of blanks. it's art show season!
