We hope everyone had a happy, restful (tipsy? that’s okay!) Thanksgiving – and Hanukkah! – and allowed yourselves to brush off the every day worries, at least for a little while. Now that the turkey has officially been consumed, I can openly enjoy holiday music without Scott’s constant chiding, but it’s too early! (I realize the how soon is too soon? is public debate every year, but it just makes me so smiley.)
Which means… Christmas isn’t too far around the corner! For the first time in 3 years, we opted out of applying for the Chicago Holiday Renegade Fair (we just have far too much house-going-ons), and while we’ll still go to pick up gifts for others, it’ll be a little sad not partaking in the festive energy. On the other hand, not applying meant that we were able to take on more Pet Shop orders than in years past, and we had our earliest sell out to date! A thousand times, thank you.
Although we’re sold out of the paintings themselves right now, we do have other options for custom, personalized (and very, very sweet) gifts for the pet lovers in your lives – and yes, even for your fine self! May we suggest our custom painting gift certificates? Or for those of you that like to knock out the to-list early (you’re our kind of people), we’re currently accepting 2014 pre-orders. To see which option is right for you, we encourage you to hop on over to The Pet Shop.
But as much as we love nothing more than to virtually meet your pets, we’d be amiss not to remind you of The Print Shop, too. You’ve all been so helpful with your top picks, and we like to think of those giclées as our own little group effort. (You + us.)
Art – pets or prints – will surely show off your thoughtful gift-giving skills this holiday season; much better than another scratchy sweater, don’t you think? Over the years, your kindness and encouragement has never stopped amazing us, and your support of our small business (among other things!) has meant the world. Happy holiday shopping to you!
