Please welcome ...Krista
Would all sugar addicts out there give a huge welcome to Krista Smith our newest illustrator to join the family at the House of Sugar. I discovered the characters which Krista is going to be know for on ETSY and fell in love with them. I love the sassy ones, the nerdy one and the boys too! I love too many on these and have a had time picking which ones to make into stamps. As always I need your help, pop over to Krista's etsy store and see all her super designs,( I will not smack you is some should fall into your shopping basket!), pick your favourite three and come back and tel me.
I know that Krista will go far in the art world and I will watch with delight and excitement as to which doors open for her in the next few year. It is very exciting if not frightening for us to launch an artist into the world of rubber, you would think by now I would be used to it, but it still is nerve racking, this market is so up and down I am never 100% sure of my own choices, in my heart I know that Krista's characters are artistically beautiful, original and a little more grown up than the usual cute children's stamps which are our signature line.
But Sugar Nellie is growing up and we would like you to grow with us, join us from the start and your loyalty will be rewarded, we will be launching 5 new stamps on pre order with the 6th being a limited edition which will be sent FREE to all who pre order the set of 5.
As always I know how you love to get to know the artist behind the designs, after visiting Etsy its clear that Krista is talented, her picture tells us she is young, but also she is a Mother, so lets have a look at the two cuties who inspire some one Krista's work.
Krista is shy by nature she tells me, and did not have a blog, but she has started one now and is giving away an art print so pop on over and leave her some sugar here.
Enjoy your day sugar addicts and remember in a years time when everyone is crazy for Krista, you "met" her here. Good people deserve good things and all good things come to those who wait. Good times ahead, hold on tight its going to be an exciting time :)
I was Skyped last night by Debbie who some of you will remember went to work in NY this summer and now that the job is finished has taken off to Florida with some of her new friends she has met while working there. Debbie is off to Harry Potter world in Orlando today and a trip to the Florida Mall to A & F of course! A fun few days with friends then off to see her Superman for the final time this summer before coming home later in the month, she has had a blast and would recommend that if anyone gets the opportunity to travel and work overseas, go for it. I am sure she will have plenty of stories to tell me and some she would not dare but this week she is enjoying some time in the sun, lucky thing!
