This year it's all about flower power... not the hippy kind ~ more of a whimsy flavor with a slight vintage flair.
I've been having fun hand dying the 'petals', cutting up old books & mixing them with buttons & other findings to create this new flower collection.
I must admit, these new flower frames are my favorite & our catching fireflies customers agree. They made their debut at our retail store right before Christmas & lots of them got snatched up.
Another great thing about these frames is the option to personalize them with a custom tag. It's a really sweet & subtle way to celebrate a special date, place or gathering of friends & family.
Five more giant posies joined our collection of wall flowers for the new year. Adding the larger sizes really added the extra pop to our original summer introduction.
Sticking with the flower theme... both of these new introductions make great desk accessories & are perfectly priced for a fantastic grab & go gift. The post it pads are replacable & the vases come with silk flower for display but can hold water & real buds.
I added a couple new styles to our ever popular memory magnets & added fridge flowers to our marvelous magnet collection. These little guys come with a silk flower for display, but can hold water & a real flower bud. I have no doubt that fridge flowers will make an awesome little gift for teachers, moms, grandmas, girlfriends & more!
It was time for our ransom quotes to get some fresh words of wisdom so we redesigned 7 of them. Some of the new quotes include...
The longer you wait for the future, the shorter it will be - Loesje
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it - Roald Dahl
Don't follow your dreams; chase them - Richard Dumb
The secret to having it all is knowing you already do
I also redesigned 3 of our wedding ribbon frames & made 'forever yours' more beach themed intended for those magical get-away weddings. Plus I added a golden toned portrait frame to the mix. I think this new color story for is great for vintage anniversary photos.
After I designed the new boy frame, I thought this simple & sweet pennant layout would be perfect for personalizing baby frames. The pennants show of the baby's birth date & their name is stamped right above. This is another of my favorite new introductions.
The good boy & good girl frames were such a hit last year, we added those designs to our leash hooks & memory magnets for our furry friends in 2012.
I also added a small handful of new everyday frames. Hopefully these new goodies will brighten up your shelves & walls in your shop and make the perfect gift or keepsake your customers are searching for.
Cheers to a bright & hopeful 2012!
