There will be a dog, cat and chicken ready to go, but you can do any other design you can think of. I’ve already heard there a rumor that one artist is going to make a policeman pillow!!

What an AMAZING time everyone had at AMERICA’S MART last week. The MISS MAVIS’ FUN HOUSE posse had a blast. We met some of the coolest new retailers that will be listing as they receive their orders.
Pictured above are Tom Lemon, Managing Partner; Kathleen Lemon, bookkeeper; me, and Gisele Nelson of Plywood People, product finishers.

Also, a HUGE thank you to, Brian Reinhart, Claire Christin, Stephe Koontz, and Boyd McCurdy. Without you guys, it never would have happened!

And last but not least. Katherine Stellar, where do I start to thank you? You flew from LA just to be here. you worked tireless hours to get the product line together. You put up with my unpredictable artist moods. I love you girlfriend!!!
