I’m feeling rather festive and want to share my appreciation with all those who have given me so much support this year. I’m giving away $100 worth of goodies (of your choice) from my Tori & Ollie shop to one lucky winner!

Here is an example of a collection I made of all my favorite items from Tori & Ollie.

One of my favorite parts about Storenvy is being able to “Envy” items you like. I love going back to my Envies and purchasing unique items I can’t get anywhere else, and Envies are a great way to share the things you like with friends. Feel free to “Envy” your favorite Tori & Ollie art pieces as you create your personal wish list. You can also “Watch” Tori & Ollie to have new items appear in your feed. I’m incredibly excited to be bringing you new art and goodies in the new year.

Hello Nashville

VICTORIAGEDVILLAS_NASHVILLE

Hi there everybody, it’s been awhile! I have been missing in action for almost two months. Lots of cool things have happened, I left Florida and moved to Nashville! I’m very excited to be here and to explore the city. The last two months were hectic but I had a blast. I went to Fanboy Expo with my dear friend Jennipho and met lots of awesome people, visited my hometown for a few weeks, swung by Atlanta, GA to see another good friend and finally made my way to my new home. Nashville is absolutely beautiful — finally some greenery compared to all the palm trees back home. There are tons of things to do, and I conveniently live a few blocks from the main strip. Being able to walk to the post office to make all my Tori & Ollie deliveries is a very nice treat. The library is also right across the street, along with a sushi restaurant that always has my favorite treat, salmon roe with quail eggs.

Lots of nifty plans coming up in the next month. I will be participating in three craft shows around the Nashville area showcasing Tori & Ollie. My first stop will be the Fall Extravaganza in Hendersonville, TN October 25th. The following weekend I will have a booth at the Fall Holiday Arts and Craft Show in Franklin November 1st and 2nd. Finally, November 8th I will be at the Mistletoe Market also in Franklin,TN. There might be a few more shows after the 8th depending how well these three go, wish me the best of luck!

I can’t wait to share some of the projects that I was working on while I was at David and Goliath, since my designs are now out in stores! Stay tuned for the handmade Sweet & Salty sketchbooks, cute little Ollie Otter zines and more projects I’ve been working on.

Tampa Bay Comic Con 2014

In a previous blog post, I showcased a polymer clay charm artist and a few of her creations. I’m excited to announce I will be joining Jennipho at Tampa Bay Comic Con August 2nd and August 3rd in the artist alley! Come visit us at table C15 for tons of cuteness and handmade accessories. It has been an honor working and planning comic con with her. She is a very talented artist with a great personality. I’m incredibly thankful for her generosity. I was hoping to sign up for a table but they were already sold out. I expressed my wishes of showcasing Tori & Ollie and meeting other artist and she reached out offering to share half of her table.

Jennipho will be selling an assortment of delicious charms and toys. Her recent release of new charms are amazing! Grab a few before they are all sold out. My favorite is the Chinese fish ball skewers, you’ll be seeing me sporting this charm on my cellphone at the convention.
