gone too long.......

It has been SO long since I've written.  The last 2 years have just flown by with numerous shows and trips to photograph new schools to add to our list.  Speaking of the list, it has grown from 500 to 750 schools and we still continue to add at least 65 new schools to the list each year.  For an up to date listing with images, visit our website at

graduation gifts

been gone a long time....working on new schools for graduation gifts, alumni gifts...more than 600 schools now. we'll be at the Pittsburgh Home & Garden show in March. We think the university prints make cool, unique graduation gifts, can be personalized with gift cards, grouped with gift baskets. Getting ready for a good year. We will also be in Ocean City, MD for Springfest again. That show was awesome! Let's think graduation!

Cleveland Home Show

Once again, we're getting ready to leave for the Cleveland Home Show which runs Feb 6-14th. We hope to see everyone and enjoy the show too as it should be a great event under new management this year. Also, Rich may take some time off from the show and revisit some nearby schools to update them for future prints. We have added so many schools lately and he will be bringing Chatham, Saint Vincent and several others to the Cleveland show for the first time. Since the show is all new for this year, I think we'll be in the Arts & Crafts section, so just look for us.

Happy New Year!!!

Christmas orders are done with; now for the New Year. We are planning a trip to Florida soon to visit friends but ALSO to do seven more universities in Florida if all goes as planned. We're also trying to focus on art fairs & shows for the coming year, deciding what to try for and what to let go of. Hope you all had a great year and continue to check our web site when you need to order something or ask about new universities & colleges that you might be interested in. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Remaining Shows....

Looks like we only have a few shows left for the year, where has it gone?? We leave for Nashville, TN next week for the Christmas Village Show. At the same time, my sister will run our booth at the St. Luke's Methodist Church show in Indianapolis on the 14th. That's a nice, one day show, if you've never been. Rich has completed Carson-Newman & Freed-Hardeman, both in TN; he's got so many to complete before Christmas. He's also been working on an idea for our booth, so that will be ready for the Nashville show. I'm working on cat portraits and organizing things for the shows. Must paint and feed cats.....;) rebecca

Off to Chantilly

Leaving for Chantilly, VA for Gilmore Craftsmen show this weekend. It's dreary out and being indoors at a show will be nice. We will be going there with more new schools. Siena College, Mount Holyoke, Univ. of Oregon, Univ. of Washington, Washington State, Regis and several more. I lose count! We recently made a trip to Nashville, TN and Wichita, KS and did schools along the way. Soon, very soon, we'll have Un. of TN @Chattanooga; Carson-Newman and Lee Univ. in TN; Tabor, Friends & Southwestern in KS will be later.......

What's new....

A few schools are done: Oregon State University. Hanover College has been revised and is done; Bellarmine University has been revised and is done. Regis College is done. Problem is, there are about 25 more new ones waiting to be printed....

We will be at the Chauttauqua Arts Festival in Madison, IN this weekend. Let's hope the weather holds out and it doesn't rain on us. Our booths are on Broadway, a few booths down from the information tent, in the middle of the street. I think our booth numbers are #808 and #807...

The Mellwood show last weekend in Louisville wasn't so good. For one thing, with it being the same weeekend as Penrod now, we won't do it again because of that. Penrod is SO good that we can't slight it again by doing 2 shows at one time. We were a little tired after that weekend!
