Dots & Loops

Hello everybody!
So we're super excited to announce that our stuff is now available in Dots & Loops Handmade Boutique all the way up in Nova Scotia, Canada!  Kate Funk just finished packaging up her first order and it'll be on it's way first thing in the morning.

They even have an unofficial store mascot - the owners, Melanie and Stephen's cat Frank.  He seems like a pretty cool dude, with being able to shoot lasers out of his eyes and what not.



2013 Calendar Theme Contest

Help!  We need a theme for the 2013 calendar.  We really liked the last two years where we had themes rather than traditional holiday photographs.  (2011 was famous movies and 2012 is musical genres.)  But now we're stumped on what to do for 2013.  
Since we're always getting suggestions for photo ideas we thought that we'd ask you guys what you want to see and turn it into a contest.  Kate Funk, Brennan, and I will vote on the winning idea, and they will receive a free copy of the calendar their idea helped create!  (With a bit of a wait while we make it first.)
To enter, leave a comment on this post with your name and some way for us to contact you if you win (email, link back to your blog or profile, etc.).  
The contest ends at midnight (CST) of Saturday, December 31st and the winner be will chosen and announced on Sunday, January 1st.  
If you have trouble entering a comment, please email Kate at katefunk@katefunk.com instead.
We can't wait to hear what you are thinking!


AC's Baby

It's October!  Kate flipped the calendar this morning and I got to see one of my favorite photos from last year's calendar - Rosemary's Baby.  It's actually a favorite of mine because it was the one photo I didn't have to pose for.  This was the one time that miss Kate Funk actually used photoshop for one of her photos (which she gets asked about a lot at craft shows I hear - and I assure you that I sit and pose for all of those photos until we get it just right).  If you look closely, you'll notice it's actually the side view from the Mug Shot card flipped on it's side.
It's one of Kate Funk's favorite photos, though, just because she loves the movie.  And this time of year.  She's already pulled out a stack of her favorite old horror movies (she doesn't seem to like the new ones for some reason) for us to watch in preparation of her favorite holiday - Halloween!
