Back to business.

What a whirl wind these last few weeks. Last week our computer crashed and we were without for close to 10 loooong days. We only had a very old laptop computer so we could monitor our emails but we couldn't access our photos, etc.

It couldn't have happened at the worst time. We were right in the middle of working on a project for a company and working on a photo shoot. Thankfully everyone was very understanding and were very patient with us.

When we finally got our computer back and up and running we were bracing ourselves for hurricane Irene. Thank goodness we were only hit with rain and a few small tree branches around our yard.

So this week we are getting back on schedule. The project is complete, the photo shoot is done, and we are working like crazy coming up with new Christmas sketches (we are soooo behind on those!!) and soon we will need to varnish, embellish and glitter our new Autumn collection coming out later next month

Speaking of Autumn.... In today's mail we got our issue of Autumn with Matthew Mead.
What are looking forward to taking a little time to explore the beauty of this magazine.
If you love seasonal magazines and want to get inspired we would highly recommend checking out Matthew's site and ordering your own issue before they are gone.

Have a good week everyone!

My mouth is watering here in the studio for some candy corn!
Why you ask? We're working on painting these yummy owls in candy corn colors for our new Halloween Ornament collection coming soon:)
I think a trip to the candy store is in order, what do you think?

What we are working on

Happy Friday everyone! It's such a beautiful day here. Nice breeze coming through the studio window, and we're listening to some soothing music ahhhh. But really it's the calm before the storm as they say....

This will be an extra busy weekend for us here. The kids are away (Yipee!) for the weekend so we really need to work extra hard and accomplish as much as we can in a short time. The studio is full of fall ornaments waiting to be painted and tiles full of ornaments waiting to be swirled so we can can bake them. We are the thick of creating our new Halloween/Autumn 2011 collection.

We are also working with Scupley (the material we use to make our ornaments) on a fun spooky how-to project that will come out in September. So we have to make the project in many stages so we can photograph it. Hopefully we will have nice weather for the pictures sake:)

And after all that we will be transforming our studio into a winter wonderland for an upcoming photoshoot. Crazy we know, but we still wouldn't trade it for anything.

Our growing pile of new designs waiting to be sanded so we can start painting.

Our swirly turkey is making another appearance this season.

We are trying something a little different with a few of our ornaments.
Can you tell what (or should we say who?) these are going to be?

Here is a closer look. If all goes as planned you will see them in this years Halloween collection.
