Studio News {shameless self promotion}
 - Well we have been very busy for the last month. Christmas snuck up on me this year and before I knew it it was time to design holiday cards. Most of the bigger retailers buy their holiday cards in April and May - they don't actually receive them until September/October but in the wholesale world you have to be ready for the buying seasons or you will miss out. So this year, along with our signature counter cards, we are producing boxed holiday cards and coordinating gift tags and this year they are going to be glittered - woo hoo! I am very excited about the glitter! So the line sheets are ready and if you are interested in wholesale send me an email and I will get a line sheet and samples to you asap. (And we will have some great giveaways of Christmas product closer to November!)
 - Another piece of news I am very excited about is one of our new retailers - Urban Outfitters! A selection of Cartolina products will be available at Urban Outfitters in the next couple of weeks. How fun!
 - Also we are excited that our notebooks are being featured in Stationery Trends Magazine this month. It's always a thrill to see our products on a magazine page - thank you Jan!
 - And finally I am very proud to announce that Doug illustrated the cover of Forbes Magazine this month. Forbes has been using photography on their covers for quite a long time now but historically they were always one of the most stylishly illustrated covers on the news stand. This month they chose Doug to illustrate the cover and some interior spots. It's on the news stand this week, looks great, though we will have to wait a few days to get a copy here. Good job Doug - hey, wanna illustrate some cards?
