We Made A Video!


Thanks to the amazing talents of filmmaker Anna Mac Donald I am happy to present to you this brand new video about my little shop. I think it turned out so great. And just when it couldn't get any cooler my good friends Jared Schinosky and Choo Kien made the nicest song for it. I am so lucky to have so many talented people as friends and have no idea what I'd do without all of your help! So I'd like to thank everyone who contributed to making this video and also everyone who will take the time to watch it and help pass it along. 

I feel like Anna portrayed what my shop is all about really well and in a fun way. 
I hope you will like it!

Get ready for the Holidays!

Lately every year the holidays do this thing where they manage to sneak up on me even though I definitely know they're coming! I think it's because shops start to decorate for Christmas earlier and earlier now and and so for a month or two we are in this constant state of Christmas, almost forgetting that there is an actual date attached to the whole thing. By the time I realize that it's often too late and my cards end up getting there a week after everything is long over. This year, I have decided to be better about it. I will try to write all of my cards in these next couple of weeks so that later, all I will need to do is to throw them in the mail. If you want to be clever like me might I suggest one of our festive card sets to get you in the writing mood?

Pass on the Christmas spirit with santa and a little Christmas sprite.
A more general holiday card set that is a wee bit on the funny side of things. 
And last but not least these single cards of three cute kids with animals singing songs of Peace On Earth. Wouldn't it be nice if we all just got along? 

So whatever holiday you're celebrating this season, let's make it as awesome as possible.

Colouring Mask Book Launch Photos!



I had so much fun at our Colouring Mask Book Launch at Collage Collage last month! And now that the photos from it are ready I am having a good time all over again looking at them. A huge thanks to Lauren Joan Photography for taking these great pics! What a talented lady you are:)



It was so great for me to see both, kids and adults colour in the masks so many different fun ways and really make them theirs. Very cool! 

The other part of this celebration was the one year anniversary of Draw Me A Lion. I have to say that I am really proud of everything that I have accomplished in this first year with my little shop. It's hard to believe that it's only been one year really. It just flew by and I have learned so much in what seems relatively so little time. I wanted to say a big thanks again to everyone who helped me get there! I am looking forward to the holidays and what the next year will bring for my little line of things.
