It's been awhile since we mentioned the little dolls we sell at HQ made by our friend Dana De Kuyper. They're a mixture of cute and evil, and she calls them Damned Dollies. We love them. We give them to people as presents A LOT. Dana also makes amazing illustrations which she screenprints onto tees, change purses, etc. If you haven't seen these little ladies around town or in some magazines you're probably a hermit. They've appeared in Bust, Marmalade, British Vogue, Strut, Elle Quebec, enRoute, some Italian magazine, some Swedish magazine and various local papers. Dana was one of the first people we met when we moved to Montreal, and we love seeing her out and about at concerts, and of course at every craft show under the sun. Yay Dana!
Oh and for those wondering about that Jill Bliss package in the above pic, it's brand new at HQ! Jill Bliss is one of my favorite artists, you may recognize her art from some of the My Favorite Mirror "pocket mirrors" we have in the store, or from one of the coaster sets. Well, we now have a beautiful set of mini journals for sale. Cute!
