Happy Thanksgiving Eve! It has been such a wonderful year. It's hard to believe that the holidays are here. Our holiday season has already started off strong on the website and the shows have been super busy as well. We truly appreciate all of your support and great orders!
This afternoon, I'm finishing up another painting version of our popular custom print, Your Beloved Bookshelf. This one has a sweet stuffed bunny painting and is done especially with children's books in mind. I've had a lot of requests for this, and am happy to finally have the time to paint the design. Also, I had mentioned on our Holiday launch day that I would be doing this artwork....and have had a couple of requests since then! ;) As my good friend Liz says, I get things done because of a combination of deadlines (for me self imposed....) and peer pressure! See the Bunny in process below...and the completed version below that!... it's available for order here!
Since many people will be visiting with family and friends over the next few days, I thought it would be fun to answer some questions I often get about this fun gift! Thanksgiving is a great opportunity for you to drop some subtle (or not so subtle) hints about sending the favorite book list.
It is a special customized print that celebrates the person's love of reading, and to give them a beautiful gift that will make them smile every day. OR if you are a big reader, this is a great treat for yourself ;)
B.) It's a surprise! Please don't ask questions!
Are you offering some sort of a special for the holiday weekend? Yes! Of course we are doing something special for the holiday weekend! That email will be coming on Friday. But in the meantime, we wanted our email list to have the first dibs on our special we are doing for Your Beloved Bookshelf right now!
Can I give my special person a gift card so they can order their own Beloved Bookshelf? You certainly can! We have E-Gift Cards available for purchase in many denominations.
