My Peacock Paradise collection was inspired by the peacock feathers I had added to a dried flower arrangement sitting in a vase on my dining room sideboard. The feathers add an exciting dramatic element and have such gorgeous rich colours . I decided to create a collection around the blue/green/purple family as a result. Mother nature is such a great teacher on the art of colour combining and shows us a myriad of warm and cool colours can exist peacefully together and even be visually calming.
My plan for the future, is to continue offering similar collections created around a central theme instead of my previous haphazard way of throwing multiple styles and colours together as the mood took me. It makes for much better and more cohesive photographs and forces me to stop and think and plan before creating. With a plan in my mind, I find I am able to utilize my time more effectively which is very important as spring is around the corner and activity on the farm will increase exponentially; demanding more and more of my focus and attention.
The Peacock Paradise collection will be available on my Etsy shop on Sunday, March 11, 2012 at 11:00 a.m Eastern Standard Time (EST). I had a number of requests to change the timing of my listings from friends in the UK and EU. IMPORTANT: Please note this weekend marks the beginning of Daylight Savings Times (DST) in Ontario Canada where we move our clocks forward by one hour. If any of this is confusing, I suggest you search on World clock utilities which can be attached to most Internet Browser interfaces. I personally use World Time for Google Chrome and love its simple analog clock graphic. Please enjoy a few more photos the my newest collection:
For information regarding upcoming collections, I strive to keep my Etsy shop information as up-to-date as possible and provide the next date for listings on the shop status line. You can access my shop by selecting Doll Accessories from the blog menu above and then Shop from the drop-down menu. This will take you directly to my Etsy shop. You can also visit my Facebook Fan Page which is accessible by selecting the Facebook icon on the right hand side of the page, or at the end of each of my blog posts. Please join me there if you haven’t already. And now it’s time to grab some sleep as I get robbed of an hour… a struggle for this night owl for sure!
