New! Olliegraphic Holiday Collection

I'm so excited to unveil the 2010 olliegraphic holiday collection today!

It features customizable moms, dads, kids, and pets in a wintry setting on folded holiday greeting cards and large gift labels.

I'm offering five hairstyles and four facial hair options for dads, nine hairstyles for moms, and lots of cats and dogs in all different sizes and colors. But if those options aren't exactly right for your family, the artist behind the olliegraphic collection, Meg, is happy to create completely custom illustrations for you, which she'll then send to me to print on your holiday items.

Please note: the ordering deadline for custom illustrations is December 1st.

All of the folded cards include a message printed on the inside of the cards.

I've listed products with up to four children, but if you have more than four children, please feel free to order cards or labels with four children and add the details for the additional children in the "Additional Instructions" field.

I'm also offering a pregnant mom - so cute!

Yum Food & Fun for Kids

I received an order yesterday for a couple of personalized plates, and the customer mentioned in the comments section that she saw the plates featured in a magazine, Yum Food & Fun for Kids. I remembered that I had been contacted by the magazine a couple of months ago, but I hadn't heard anything since then. Unfortunately, the magazine isn't available online, so I headed over to Barnes & Noble to take a look, and sure enough, there were my plates on page 34!

I was bummed that they didn't give Carrie Davis credit for the photograph of her daughter, Charlotte, but it's always fun to see my products in print!

a creative use for bookplates

Last year I received an order from event planner Brittany Egbert of One Charming Party for silhouette invitations and a coordinating set of bookplates, each with different text.

I don't know how I missed these gorgeous photos when Brittany published them in a post about the pink themed first birthday party that she planned, but when I came across them recently I figured it would be better late than never to share them. What a clever idea!

another photography trade

Here are some more fun pictures from a trade I recently did with photographer Emma Burcusel of Westland, Michigan. Isn't this little guy such a cutie?! And I love the dump truck birthday cake!
