Halloween Banners

I'm super excited about these new Halloween Banners that we're carrying in our shop. It's the first time I've designed the banner and printed it digitally instead of hand stamping. I was a little nervous at first because I thought they might lose their charm...but I'm definitely pleased with the results. You can check them out in our Halloween 2010 shopping section, or click on the links below for details on each individual banner.

Dr. Seuss Knows His Stuff

I recently came across this wonderful little quote by Dr. Seuss. It goes like this:

"You know your in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams."

So, we made a print out of this quote and introduced it at the July Art Walk at Banyan Tree. It was a huge hit. These are now available for sale on our Etsy shop.

These are available in red (shown), pink, hot pink, electron blue and yellow.

The Paris Recap

Well, I'm finally back home from my 1st international trip. In fact...I've been home for nearly a week. And while I really did have the best intentions to blog every day during my trip I barely had the energy to check my email at the end of the day. I really only had one completely free day to explore Paris. So when I would get back to my hotel after working about 10 hours, I would hit the streets to see as much as I possibly could during my 4 days there. Here are a few things that I saw:

Sacre Coeur - my official favorite site in Paris (sorry Eiffel Tower)

I liked Sacre Coeur so much that I actually walked up these 5 million stairs twice to see it. My legs hated me for it.

Notre Dame

Arc de Triomphe - this actually wasn't even on my list of sites that I wanted to visit. I've seen it a million times on tv and in movies, but I thought...what's the big deal? It's just a gate, right? But I was close to it one night so I figured...what the heck. I'm glad I did. It's about 20 times the size I thought I was. And the most impressive part is detailing you get to see when you walk underneath it. Ah...the Eiffel Tower. It's just as beautiful as I thought it would be...

...and even prettier at night.

Saying Auf Wiedersehen to Germany and Bonjour to Paris

On my last day in Germany, I decided to take the trek to Berlin to visit the Brandenburg Gate. I honestly didn't know much of the significance of this landmark before I went, but had heard that it was a great thing to see while in Germany. Turns was probably one of the most significant landmarks I think I have ever seen. You can read some history of the gate here. Over the course of the Cold War, 152 people were shot and killed for trying to pass through the gate illegally from West Germany to East Germany. Today the gate symbolizes democratic freedom and a unified Germany.

Right down the road from the Brandburg Gate is the Reichstag Building. This building now houses Germany's Parliament, but at one time was the site for many of Hitler's propaganda presentations.

What's is maybe more eerie than walking through the Brandenburg gate is standing on the same steps that Hitler once did.

During the Cold War, the Reichstag Building went unused after the Berlin Wall was built. After the Wall was torn down, the new democratic goverment decided to move back into this building. The glass dome that you can see in the above picture is meant to symbolize the political transparency that is now promised to the people by the goverment.
I'm a little bummed that I didn't know too much of the history of these amazing sites before I visited, but I'm really excited to start doing some research {I think I may have just become a history buff in training}.
And now on to more upbeat topics...
I arrived in Paris at 9:00pm (3:00 pm in Ohio). I can't say if it is the most beautiful city in the world, but it is certainly the most beautiful city I have ever seen. When I was walking to dinner tonight, I came across this gorgeous building...
I'm not sure what this is, but I'm excited to find out tomorrow.

This is the view from the balcony in my hotel room.

Tomorrow I have a completely free day to explore the city before I head to a tradeshow on stay tuned for more pics of Paris
