Hi Guys!

I'm super excited to announce my latest licensing endeavor with Darice.  It is a continuation of my Boho lines, except this time my shapes are in felt!  There are about 60 skus in the collection including stickers, trims, and items to embellish (eyeglass cases, clutches, purses, business card holders, etc.), and they all have super cute laser cut details, etching, and layering.

It was a lot of hard work (but fun too!) and the folks at Darice have been a dream to work with.  As with most product development it takes about a year (give or take) from concept to completion so it's an awesome feeling when something you've been working on for months is finally in your hands!

The line is just now finding it's way into craft stores and online, but today I am announcing a giveaway to all of my blog readers!  I really appreciate those of you who stop by my blog and have been supportive of my creative endeavors along the way.  To enter the giveaway just simply leave a comment below.  It could be anything- just a "hello", which feltie grouping you like the best, what you want to see more of on my blog, your current favorite music (you know I'm always looking for new music!), it could be anything...

I'll also be posting examples of what you can do with the Boho pieces within the next few weeks.  It was a little hard to photograph the pieces in the plastic sleeves, so I will try and share some finished pieces with you guys.

Oh, and contest is open now until June 30th to anyone in the US or abroad.  There will be 4 winners (1 winner will receive the bird group, 1 winner will receive the owl group, 1 winner will receive the elephant group, and 1 winner will receive the butterfly group) so your odds are pretty good on this one!  One entry per person please, and please make sure that I have a way to contact you if you win (if your comment links to your blog that has your email addy that is fine, otherwise please leave your email in the comments and you can spell out the dot and at symbols to avoid the spam-bots).

XO,
Genevieve

I can't pick one favorite! I like different pieces from each set. Congratulations on a job well done!! I'd love to see you design patches that we can use in sewing (you see a lot of embroidered patches on Euro style clothing as an example). That's what I initially thought these were and got all excited for a minute! LOL! Regardless, they're SO gorgeous!!!

Just discovered your lovely work. Congrats on the deal with Darice. I know it has become a bit of a cliche but I still love putting birds on things :)

I almost went to work for Darice! They are headquartered about 2 miles from where I just moved from. Awesome company!

I love the owls, reminds me of my mother, she collected them when I was little :)

Lisa said...

Congratulations! They all look awesome but I have some major elephant lovers in my household so I would have to say they are my favorite. I'm looking forward to seeing the projects you do with them.

Can't wait to see your ideas for what all we can do with the pieces ... hard to pick a favorite, I love all the collections! For new ideas, what about steaming cups of coffee, teapots, sugar bowls ... or birdhouses ... or sock monkeys? Food for thought maybe ...
