A buffet of mystical art for you. And why I think it’s such an important trend

If you know me, you know I love anything mystical, so we’re delighted to showcase a buffet of mystic treats by our artists.

We’re assigning heaps of projects in the spiritual realm–palmistry, tea leaf reading, astrology, crystals, for example–for books, card decks, miniature gift kits, even children’s books! As women’s voices become stronger, so do the previously marginalized interests of women. Hence, the trend.

Contact us to assign or license art. We’re happy to help you find the perfect artist or gorgeous images for your project!

Check out this fantastic Felt Activity Kit by Zoë Ingram.

Children and families will build memories together as they decorate a holiday evergreen tree or a woodland oak. Felt pieces and a wood base are tactile and living room-worthy!

 

Next we have “Don’t Drop Dinner” by Erica Root!

A balanced meal is a real challenge in this stacking race game for 2-4 players. Dinner guests take turns piling their platter, morsel by morsel. If your plate topples over, you’ll go hungry. The glutton with their heaping plate intact wins dessert! A game of skill, this balancing buffet is sure to fill up any giggly belly.
