Samples Galore

I think our postman must have had very sore arms by the end of this week; every day he brought me big boxes of samples! Oh dear, what will I do with them all? I donated a lot of the kitten themed things to the local cat rescue, for their fundraising auction, but the day after I did that, another box of kitten flags arrived!

I'll start with a couple of floor mats from Carson Gift. I visited with them at the Atlanta show, and they are so very nice! There are garden flags that match these rugs as well. I put this one in the kitchen. Thank goodness Mr Right doesn't object to having cute things scattered around!

Here is a very Spring-like kitten image garden flag, also from Carson. They have quite a kitten collection of my work!

I also got lots more coasters! These are from Legacy. These are the twelve images that are on my calendar I did for them, and they decided to make these nice coasters as well.

This floor mat is from Evergreen Enterprises. This is one of my favorite paintings. There is a matching garden flag from Evergreen, and it is also available as a puzzle from Karmin.

Here are just a few of the flags I did for Evergreen. I still need to take photos of the others. It is fun to see evidence of my hard work! It makes me feel like I have proof that even though I feel like I am playing in the studio some days, I actually am achieving something! Back to the drawing board for me now; I am working of fabric designs this week, as well as a new puzzle. Variety is the spice of my life!


  1. Beautiful work, and its nice when you have that final printed product in your hands and you can see it and feel it (and know you made it is just really exciting)... I remember my first book I illustrated for, that was huge : )

    I love the one with the lab puppy and kitten, so cute!! Great work!!

  2. Oh, these turned out so lovely! Thanks for sharing your works ~Theresa

  3. These are adorable, Jane! Don'tcha just LOVE samples?

  4. They are all beautiful! And I know what you mean when you say it's good to have proof that you're achieving something when you feel as if you're playing!

    BTW, what is a 'garden flag' - is it something we have over here in the UK?
