buckets of love

so here we go, a sneak peak into my new product line.
i've decided to add decoupage, galvanized buckets
to my line.  it's something that you might have
seen in gift shops along your travels.  
the truth is i hold this particular item very near
and dear to my heart.
about 10 years ago, i started a company in which
i came up with the idea of completely covering metal
buckets with my images.  after careful thought and
several attempts, i figured out the perfect
way to "wrap" my designs around the metal shapes,
achieving full-coverage and resulting in a
decorative, useful and quite popular product.

my company grew and grew.  i was selling to shops all over the
country and some international stores as well.  some of the
stores include: ABC Carpet and Home, Anthropologie,
Dylan's Candybar, even Harrod's of London.
my buckets were even featured in lots of popular magazines.

after several years in the home decor industry,
i had a falling out with my business partners and sold
my shares of the company.
i've truly enjoyed the past few years of my creative
endeavors.  i have a great studio, a wonderful
etsy shop, and fun freelance work.

the truth is that everyone always loved the "buckets".
i have so many designs in my portfolio at this
point i thought, 'wouldn't it be fun to see some of
these designs decorating a useful item?'

i'm very excited about all the possibilities i have in featuring
my artwork this way.  in the next few weeks i'll be
sharing with you new buckets, ideas for different ways
to use them, and a wonderful giveaway.
