I have set up a website for Search Me Toys! http://www.searchmetoys.com/ It's not quite finished, but almost.
Attention all photographers, illustrators, artists & designers! In addition to my "I spy" pouches, I plan to produce a series of Search Me cards designed by artists all over the world . The goal of each card design is to find certain items in a "busy" picture....something along the lines of the sample above. I am searching for lots of different formats...photographs, collages, illustrations..from a wide variety of illustrators and artists. Each card will be produced in a post card format. When I have a collection of cards, I plan to produce a book! (everyone has dreams!) Each design published will include a page about the contributor. Details will be firmed up before publishing, but will include the contributor's photo, a brief bio, and contact information for their business or design studio. All of you artists, photographers, illustrators and designers can check out the details here.
As for the "I Spy" pouches, it's been a busy few weeks. I have been tracking down lots of fun miniature items. My original idea was to have basically the same items in each different pouch and use a variety of fabrics. This idea has progressed to making different themed pouches instead...seashore, food, alphabet, animals, Christmas, etc. There will be some "general" pouches too. It's been a lot of fun. I also ordered some fabric patches with the Search Me logo (designed by Angelique of Peach Tree Bliss) and website. These little patches will be sewn onto the pouches. And...I've ordered some tags for the packaging. It's all coming together nicely.
So...we're off! I'll be back in a couple of weeks. Enjoy!
