Sweet Little Art Pins!

Real quickly here are some of the latest additions to the Gumball Grenade shop. Cute little shrink plastic pins! Yay! So I just got back from beautiful California and made a visit to the amazing Renegade Craft Show. I went to the show with the intent to preview the event and see if it's something I'd like to participate in. I have to say I was impressed! Lot's of impressive artists showcased some amazing items and some displayed work created using really interesting techniques. Some favorite Etsy sellers were there such as Mary Ink and Berkley Illustration. Another seller was quite innovative with an image transfer process he developed and used to print his graphic art on to leather! I was amazed! So much creativity in one place lots of good energy. Anyway, enough of my rambling!

Randomness! I'm not so sure.

Lots of really unexpected and oh so wonderfully coincidental things have happened in the last couple weeks that have caused me to wonder if life really is all that random afterall. Hmmmm, I think there are greater forces at work in this universe. Anyway, I'm a little late on announcing the winner of the Fourth of July contest! But the results from are shown above! Congrats!

Flights of Fancy on the Fourth...Oh and Free Shipping!

Yay! It's the Fourth of July. I've heard it said that "I'm flawed if I'm not free." So true! I love that today is a celebration of independence. I imagine the little soul in the illustration above is crying "freedom!" as he takes off on a grand adventure. On other things I've heard...every year while watching fireworks I'm amused by what little children say. This year the cutest thing I've heard so far this year is, "Why is it making magic in the road?" So here's wishing everybody a little magic in the road and in the spirit of celebration you'll find FREE SHIPPING on all items in my Gumball Grenade shop! Also, be sure to enter to win a free Gumball Grenade print of your choice! To enter simply visit my shop and leave a comment telling which print you'd like. Contest ends July 10th. Winner will be selected by and announced on July 11th! Happy Fourth!
