Happy Sunday, folks!
I accidentally made a mistake recently when having the Wish Tree Poster printed - I formatted it so the tree is too close to the edge of the poster paper. OOPS. I don't want to sell them at full price, so I'm offering them to you guys at nearly 50% off (plus free shipping within the US).
Normally priced at $55, I have three Wish Tree Posters I'm offering at $30, including shipping. There are only three, though - so order it quickly if the misprint doesn't bother you! Check out the photos above to see the problem. :) Here's the link to the sale posters - get 'em while they're hot!
Here are the deets:
This poster-size wish tree is perfect as a guestbook at a baby shower, rehearsal dinner or intimate wedding. It also makes a great art print for a child's bedroom.
This tree is composed of 31 large circles (~1.5" diameter), 31 medium circles (~1" diameter) and 24 small circles (~3/4" diameter), for a total of 86. The small circles are large enough for guests to sign their names, and the large circles are the perfect size for a short message (or "wish" as the case may be!).
The wish tree poster is a plain tree with no animals or people, and is a standard poster size at 18" x 24". It is printed on beautiful luster gloss poster paper.Comment
Happy Thursday everyone! Just a quick note to say
two three things:
1) The comments are now fixed. Quite a few of you let me know that you couldn't post comments because they were "identified as spam." How annoying! I've now switched to Disqus comments, which should solve the problem.
2) Today is the last day to get 10% off your holiday cards, and I only have two spots left if you'd like them delivered in early December! New Year cards are another story, so let me know if you're interested in cards delivered closer to or after Christmas. Interested in holiday or New Year cards? Contact me by clicking here.
3) Now is a great time to order if you'd like to give the gift of a family or pet portrait for the holidays! These make very special, thoughtful gifts for your loved ones - and just think - your shopping could be over! Contact me for more information.
Like most everyone, it kind of sickens me to walk into Ikea and see Christmas decorations. I'm not ready, I say! I'm not ready! But ready or not, the holidays are coming, and quickly. Last year I was inundated with holiday card orders at the last minute - I know, I know, you don't want to think about the holidays until at least Thanksgiving - but last minute orders stress me out, so too bad for you! ;)
In order to avoid the mad rush that was 2010, I'm offering 10% off the design fee on all custom cards through November 10. And as always, past clients don't have to pay to have themselves re-drawn, so potentially you may only need to pay for printing and envelopes!
Check out this year's designs (or come up with your own cute idea!):
The following two "cards" are belly bands, which you can wrap around a 4" x 6" photo, or your holiday newsletter!
And please tell your friends, because you've only got until November 10 - friends don't let friends pay full price when they don't have to, am I right or am I right?

Deciding on the winners of this contest was a lot harder than I expected. Every baby was adorable. And while I never intended to pick just one winner, I never thought I'd have a hard time choosing around five or so. But we seriously could NOT narrow it down. And because we couldn't send out 45 shirts, we decided on the (still big) number of 10 winners.
We spent three hours trying to choose the top babies, trying to evaluate based on a winning combo:
- the baby was cute (uh, everybody made that cut)
- the baby was big enough to sit up in a photo
- the baby would fit into the biggest shirt size we had
- the photos were nice (ie, we thought you might be able to take good photos of your adorable baby in our shirt)
Even with those requirements, we had a really, really hard time. We even called in reinforcements (my mom) in the eleventh hour, because we COULD NOT ELIMINATE ANYONE, but she wasn't home (the nerve!). Way more babies made the cut than we could send shirts to, so eventually we had to randomly pick the winners from our pool of finalists. It was rough. The cuteness almost killed us.
So before I announce the winners, I have to tell you something else: we decided that we have to do this again. First off, there were a lot of really cute babies that either were too little to sit up, or we weren't sure if they could. In just a few months, those babies will be champion sitters. Second, we only have up to size 18-24 months, and it's a small shirt. There were some really cute babies that wore size 24 months and might be too big for that shirt - so we've decided to add 2T & 3T sizes. So if you entered and didn't win, PLEASE ENTER NEXT TIME!
Also, all of our entrants are getting Stinkerpants stickers, because they rock.
And with that, our first round of Stinkerpants Model Babies:
Aren't they adorable? Yes, yes they are. Thank you to everyone who entered! I'll be in touch soon. :)Comment
I’ve been asked a few times recently if I offer gift certificates. The answer (up until yesterday), was “no, but I should!” Apparently, people *really* wanted them after I started talking about the Family Portraits, which have a set price.
Yesterday I created some gift certificates and uploaded them to the shop. Other than the family portraits, most of my products have variable costs, so I wasn’t sure what increments to offer. Right now, I have $25, $50, $250 (the cost of a custom drawing), $300 (a family portrait), and $500 (a round-about cost for design fee, printing and envelopes for most simple projects). The gift certificates are also good for use in the shop.
Each gift certificate is a fun “mad lib” style note with all the information your loved one will need to redeem it. It is printed on thick, high-quality paper and comes in a fun colored envelope for a sweet presentation!Comment
