Introducing NEW "This Thing Called Family" for 2012!!!

We are so excited to introduce you today to the new pieces that will be coming out in January for "This Thing Called Family!"

We had our open house this past weekend, so we set up a little display of our favorites to give our friends a first look.  We had to add another little sign saying, "Not for Sale!" because so many people wanted to scoop these up!  I know, we're teasers!

The reason that we're so excited about these new pieces is because not only are they artful, so many of them are also USE-ful!  

The piece below is a great way to display your kid's artwork.  It's magnetic and can be used vertically or horizontally.

Set of share, spend and save boxes - helps kids make good choices with their money or can be used as a family for a common goal:

One of our new favorites - a magnetic perpetual calendar!  There are unique magnets for each month to place in the sun, a rectangular magnet frame to put around the day of the week, and a circular magnet frame to move along for the date.  There's a "pocket" to store the extra magnets and it says "Make today a good day." across the bottom.  It seemed like there was a lot of buzz about the calendar at our open we're thinking/hoping people will like it!

New crosses to add to the ones already in our collection! And there are more not pictured:

There are 6 sets of these phrases, made from separate word blocks.  Each says something different and has its own unique color palette.  The sides have fun designs on them and are wide enough that the blocks can stack on a shelf or mantle.  These sets are versatile because they could ALSO be hung.  You could hang them vertically - one word below the next or hang the words in a horizontal line.  So they will fit lots of different spaces:

Another new favorite: a Nesting Owl family.  These are gor-geous!!!   The message is revealed one word at a time:  "Make each day count."  We think this set is going to be a big hit - we still get all silly over them!

So this is just a taste of what's coming out in January- it isn't everything!* 

You can see all of the items in the original collection here:  This Thing Called Family.

Did you notice anything about these new pieces?
...That's right, it's the color!  We are thrilled to be adding more glorious colors to our line!  It just makes us happy to look at and is so true to where we are in our art lives right now.

We're so glad to be able to finally share these new items with you.  Secrets are so hard to keep!
*We'll show you the rest as soon as we see it ourselves!

So what do you think?  Do you have a favorite?

*We'll have even more good stuff coming out in March and summertime next year that we can't reveal just yet, but we're even more excited about (if that's even physically possible!) because it holds a special place in our hearts!
