Theme: Mermaids and Monsters
Ever thought to yourself: I NEED more mermaids in my life???
I certainly have.
We have this Basic Mermaid shown here. I love this! There has never been any little girl that has gone away with this design that was not absolutely thrilled!
But sometimes we need MORE!
Monsters..... Yes please! We continue to enjoy Basic Dragon but last summer added Double Dragon (shown in Fantasy Creations), which was an instant winner!
Look forward to seeing more photos when we are able to post them.
'Secret New Monster'
(yeah.... we're not telling "SHHHH!")
Theme: Fantasy Creations
Last summer we introduced 'Double Dragon', which is exclusive (so far) to Petal Drops.
yes: YOU SAW IT HERE FIRST!!!!
It was a wild and crazy idea that was super fun to implement. We took a few of the 2 head Keepsakes to a show in August and LOOK what happened! (shown here)
For the first time EVER brothers and sisters actually wanted the same design (in different colors). So this year we have updated our Double Dragon '23. When we post some new photos SEE if you can tell what we changed!
We introduced 'Party Pandacorn' in summer 2022 as well. We have some more plans to implement including a fair amount of
Monty Python inspired!!!
So be on the lookout for those too. Yes, I love my job.
Theme: Four Legged Friends
These never get old
Theme: Black & White
Have you ever had someone tell you
"it's not black and white"...
Sometimes it is.
Avid gamers here.
Remember back when it used to be a downright shame when someone found out you were a gamer?
I can still hear: "You're going to rot your brain! Go outside and play, turn that off!" (Ok, I have grandkids, so this was a long time ago but...)
Anyway, now we are proud of being gamers. So, of course, we HAVE to HAVE to HAVE to create some paints that speak to the soul of the gamer!
We are still working on that Splatoon! inspired updated Gamer Grinder. It's close, so close, but we need a few more supplies to make it a reality.
Theme: Too CUTE to comply
Last year we started this theme around Pe-Gus the very cute, kind-of-too-cute really Petal Drops Keepsake.
I was probably in a Hello Kitty kind of mood as I often am. If I can be honest, I think I didn't think I would ever do more than Pe-Gus. But still. He's cute.
So around October I really started doodling and realized I needed a zebra, based on Pe-Gus. I made one and thought: it's cute.
(yes you don't have to know how many eees are in her name just hit the keyboard a bunch of times until you feel satisfied...)
Well, Deeee-bra, was super SUPER cool and looked right at home on this flower. But back then I knew nothing about black-light designs.
Deee-bra had a little secret she was going to show me.
I bought my first ever black light flashlight and started shining it around my darkened studio to see if anything would show up. And up on the wall she waited for me to shine my little light on her.
WOW. Just wow. I had no idea, but she did. She knew her secret all along. I hope to pass it on to as many kids as I come across this summer!
