Think of the magnetic, glowing energy of a lit glassybaby metamorphosed into a person and Jeffry Mitchell is standing before you. Jeffry, longtime friend of Lee's and glassybaby, is a local, brilliant, ceramicist/fine artist, and his hand imagined our new gift cards that are placed upon silver wrapping paper when you order glassybaby holiday gift wrapping (only $5.00.) Fall in love with the photo example above. Jeffry's glassybaby forest is an Arcadian place where rosy cheeked bears and bunnies warm their paws with glowing glassybaby...we love it. Treat the glassybaby you choose to holiday gift wrapping...art on art. Thanks Jeff.
Other cards to mention...in our stores right now are 'I Am' cards, that give various glassybaby a voice. For example, hudson, in first person says:
"I begin in the mountains winding 315 miles to the shores of New York City. My journey is easy next to those I give back to. Part of who I am goes to AmFar to help people living with AIDS. All of who I am believes in helping others, no matter how long or short their journey. I am hudson. I am glassybaby."
After just a few days in the store...the customer response was a resounding affinity for these charming glassybaby voices...so, the printer is printing small versions of the 'I Am' cards right now... to be included in our product boxes when the 'I Am' glassybaby colors are sold. Another brilliant Lee, Marie, Debra collaboration.
Hot Tip...literally...today we received our first shipment of signature glassybaby lighters...They will be put to work in our stores, ceremoniously, lighting glassybaby for our customer's use in choosing color. They will be for sale as well...who can resist glassybaby ephemera.
Endnote...beauty catches the eye. As Paul, our Production Manager, reorganized his very organized post...I walked by this cache of color rod...irresistable.
More Soon, Nicola
