I've been gone but not forgotten I hope......

I have not been online much (sorry) but I have not been snoozing.

Here’s  what’s happening.

The first and soonest event at Lorie’s Noggin Blog will be the SBG Christmas Blog Train.  It’s the freebiest express.  It begins midnight Saturday night Eastern Standard Time - tomorrow night for me.  I’d better look up when that is here exactly. You can start at Flerg’s and work your way through all 20 of our blogs picking up free Christmas goodies at every stop.
Hopefully after this you will have at least a little room left on your harddrives because I am working on 3 new kits that should be out sort of  soon.

The first kit to come out will be my Christmas kit. Tentatively named: Kittens and Mistletoe. (I hope the mouse doesn't mind.) Here's a preview:

This will be out very soon.  Next week I think.
  
I have also finished an SBG Studio Mix collab with Miki Ferkul and SussieM.  It will be gorgeous. The theme is Winter Carneval  in Venice.  I love that theme. It made me dig out my Van Helsing dvd and watch (a couple times at least) the scene of the Vampire Ball.  Brrrrrrr, that always  gives me the shivers on several levels.  That will be for sale December 20 at SBG. Here’s a tiny preview by way of a beautiful layout that SussieM did.  I might be breaking some rules here - if I get yelled at I'll take it down.
Then there’s a fairy tale kit I’ve been working on since October. It’s about a family that used to live in a tiny village in Dragonsend - until they got stuck in the woods by a backfired magic spell.  This is another one of those storybook kits that keeps building on itself, dragging me happily along - not sure exactly where I'll end up.

Glorious holiday wishes and hugs to everyone!!!

See you tomorrow night at the Blog Train.

The previews have me spinning ideas in my head, can't wait to see the full kits.

Lorie said...

Thank you thank you thank you thank you. oxooxo I am quite fond of that little mouse too. I need a name for him. Any suggestions? Yes I know he's wearing tights and a girly sweater but it's warm and that's what he's into.

Julie (ringwood) said...

Well...To me, he looks like the sort of happy little mouse that enjoys sitting in front of a cozy fire, cup of spiced cider at paw, a basket of knitting at his feet...Off the top of my head - 'Thimblebottom'...:)

Jud565 said...

Missed you! I was hoping you'd come out with a Christmas kit. Can't wait to see it in its entirety.

Jitka said...

OMG, OMG, Lorie, it looks fabulous! I can´t wait to see the whole kit! Woooow!
Have a nice day!

Jitka said...

I have one name for that cute mouse on my mind:
Mr. Jingle!

Like from that fantastic film Green Mile with Tom Hanks :) Love that film! And that mouse was also so cute :)
I don´t know if that name is written right :)

Oh I do like Thimblebottom and Mr. Jingles. I haven't thought of that little mouse in a long time. I like your mouse too Jitka, or if it isn't a mouse I'll guess it's related to one

Jitka said...

Lorie, do you think my pic? It´s a guinea pig, they are very cute and smart little animals - I love them! :) I had exactly the same as you can see on my pic.

Lorie said...

She is adorable.

Irenchen said...

I can´t wait to see your new kit. The preview looks so fantastic. I love the little mouse.

Hey, this little mouse looks suspiciously like Professor Isaiah Thistledowne...you know the innocent-looking MIT (Mouse Institute of Toyology)professor most likely responsible for the creation of the Lego impossible-to-put-together kits. Notoriously known for the Star Wars Millenium Falcon with it's over 8,000 pieces & 314 page instruction book! Only if you wish to never see your six year old grow to be a man would one get that for Christmas! The only way Professor Isaiah Thistledowne could construct it was to invade your computer by night (with the pretense of defragging it), only to chew through your EHD turning your only remaining gigs into widgets to hold together these monstrous Lego sets!

Lorie said...

You are so right Karlene, they could be brothers. His mom had big litters.

Noelle said...

I was HOPING for it last week, but will keep checking back. I love your kits - you are a fantastic artist! Glad to look forward to three new ones. Spread them out a little for those of us on budgets. I didn't really say that - the sooner the better.

Mabel Littleberry's Christmas Stocking will be in my store today sometime soon.
