I have mentioned before how much I love personalized items. With a spelling like I have (Stefany) it was always hard for me to find things that were personalized just for me. The same is true for Joley. So, when I was given a chance to review something made just for her, I was super excited. I have to admit though, it was difficult to pick an item to review from Kranky Krab. There really are so many great products!
I really was stuck between the very cool animal magnets and a print with Joley’s name on it. As you know, Joley loves elephants so I knew I had to go with that. Here is what we received from Kranky Krab.
This image is beautiful. I mean just beautiful. The colors are vibrant and we love this piece of wall art. It fits perfectly in her room and she thinks it is pretty darn neat too.
Tracy, the owner of Kranky Krab truly is an artist. Here is a bit more about her and her work:
I have always had a love for children’s art, as well as a love for
animals which find their way into my work.
For several years I worked as a designer for Harcourt School
Publishers illustrating and developing Flash based games for grades
In 2006 I went freelance and have continued to work for them as well
as National Geographic School Publishers and Harcourt Religion
My process begins with everything drawn first by hand. This
illustration is then scanned and digitally colored and textured using
Illustrator and Photoshop.
My prints are then created using a professional large format printer
with archival inks on high quality fine art stock, with some pieces
printed directly to canvas.
Everything is 100% handmade, including the frames, mats, and magnets.
I would recommend any of Tracy’s work for either your own child or a gift for a special little someone. If you have a baby shower coming up, these one-of-a-kind pieces would be a fantastic gift! If you order soon, you will find that all orders to the US and Canada ship FREE until July 1, 2011!!! Be sure to check out Kranky Krab to see if there are any special sales going on as well.
