Spring 2017: Watercolor

March 17, 2017

Intro

 

Did you know that Mud Pie has an in-house watercolor artist that created a lot of our Spring 2017 prints?! Well if you didn’t, let us introduce you!

CA

Meet Caitlin Alderfer, Product Development Artist at Mud Pie. Caitlin started working at Mud Pie almost exactly a year ago (at the end of the month!)  She has been painting/drawing/creating things ever since she can remember; her mom is very creative (she paints too in her spare time!) so there was always art supplies and classes during the summer as a kid.

Painting seriously didn’t begin until college though, where she was a Studio Art major, but focused in oil painting and collage. Watercolor painting only began for her about 3 years ago, when she was in grad school for Graphic Design but missed painting. At the time Caitlin had a roommate and limited space, and oil painting involves strong chemicals and is much messier than watercolors, so she decided to give it a try, and has grown from there.

 “I have also always been fascinated with watercolor because it is so challenging and unpredictable; the more you learn about it the more you understand how the paint will react when you add water, but it is always a little bit of a surprise,” says Caitlin. “It is also really a challenge because you really only get one shot; if you make a mistake you can’t erase it (for the most part) so you have to be very intentional.”Baby and Kids

Watercoloring takes a lot of patience. It depends on the print and how detailed/complex it is. As a general rule, any prints Caitlin designs that begin as a watercolored painting take longer than ones created digitally, mostly because there are so many more steps involved. She begins with sketching the patterns, then after painting she has to load it into the computer to clean up and digitize! It’s a process, but a fun one!

Caitlin loves a lot of the patterns she created for Spring 2017, but her favorite has to be the Midnight Floral pattern for Fashion. Although landing on the final version of this pattern took several weeks, she painted the original watercolor elements on her 2nd or 3rd day working at Mud Pie! “I remember asking if it was ok if I brought in paints to work with and everyone thought I was a little crazy, so it was fun to get to show what I could do so early on,” she says. “I think about my journey at Mud Pie every time I see this print, which makes it special for me. Plus, I’ve always loved florals!”

As crazy as it seems, Caitlin is already starting work on our Spring 2018 prints! And even when watercolor isn’t the right medium for a pattern, you can find Caitlin sketching and drawing by hand before she gets to the computer!

“It has been so much fun getting to see my work, which I’ve previously only seen on paper and canvas, live on products,” Caitlin says!

Score Now for the Big Game!

January 18, 2017

The big game is coming up and we can’t believe football season is almost over! And that means only two more weekends to show off how cute your future quarterback is or how precious your cheerleader is! Uniforms have been washed and equipment is packed and ready to go. It is time to score now for the big game!

Dress up your MVP in the Red & Black or Burgundy & Gray Football Shirt. Every athlete has their name on their jersey, so don’t forget about your star! Get extra points and personalize these shirts!

shirt

We LOVE this idea. If you are looking for an adorable outfit for your cheerleader, purchase the Football Two Piece Set, as well as the Reversible Glitter Tutu. Put aside the bottoms in the two piece set and dress her up in the tutu! How cute is this?! (Or, for colder days, leave the bottoms on and put the tutu on top!)

thisplusthis

Time to dress up your all-star and get him ready for kickoff! Every future QB (or running back, offensive tackle, linebacker, kicker, you get it, football player!) needs good head protection! Make sure his head is covered in the Chunky Football Knit Hat. Keep his uniform clean and stain-free with the Game Day Football Bibs. Now time to talk cleats. For those getting around on foot, slide on these adorable Football Socks! For those who prefer their knees, slip on these Football Knee Pads, because no one likes turf burn!

outfit

After a long first half, your little cutie needs some halftime rest. Mud Pie has exactly what you need to make sure they are well rested and ready for the final two quarters! Put your little one in the Football Convertible Gown or the super cozy Football Bunting.

dreambig

Then let them nap on the Football Play Mat or snuggle under the Football Blanket.

                             scoreanap

Imagine how it would feel to hold the big trophy over your head? Now go to your shopping cart at Mud-Pie.com and check out. Same feeling, right? You’ll score BIG with these catches and you’ll forever feel like you are #1! Now off to be your cuties biggest fan!

Game Night: Holiday Edition

December 22, 2016

 

familyfun

The holidays are FINALLY here!! And that means A LOT of time with your family, friends and loved ones! Other than enjoying delicious food, laughing over old memories and unwrapping gifts, you’ll have free time on your hands this weekend. It’s our version of Game Night: Holiday Edition! Here are a few fun games you can add to your family time!

Christmas Bingo can be so much fun, especially when the markers are chocolate! Print out as many boards as you need and get playing!

christmasbingo

Now this game is one of our favs. You can play it two ways. First way, you need a few wrapped presents, mittens or oven mitts and a pair of dice. The first person starts with the oven mitts next to the present. When that player puts on the mittens and tries to unwrap the present, the person to their right rolls the dice. They keep rolling until they get doubles. Once they roll a pair, the next player puts on the mittens and tries to unwrap the gift, while the person to their right rolls the dice!  The person who opens the present completely gets to keep it!

The second way is just as fun. For this game, you will need a bunch of small boxes to wrap and as many pieces of blank paper as you have small boxes. You will then draw the words (or use a picture) SANTA on one of the pieces of paper. Place each piece of paper into one of the boxes and wrap them. Let’s say you have a group of ten people. So you will have 10 wrapped boxes that have pieces of paper in them, one has the picture or word SANTA. At the same time, each person puts on their mittens and grabs their box! You unwrap until you find out if you have SANTA inside your box. If you don’t, you can steal someone who is still going to try to see if their box has it! Winner is the one who gets the SANTA and of course they get a prize!

This website has 25 super creative party games. Check out all of them and then tell us what you think!

Did you know Hanukkah starts on Christmas Eve? Regardless of which holiday you celebrate, try out the Dreidel game! If you hdo not have a pack of dreidels, here is a print out you can cut and glue together. For this game, all you will need is a driedel and a bunch of gelt (gold chocolate coins)! You can also use pennies, Jelly Beans, or other small objects! Each player puts one piece of their gelt into the center, this will be known as the pot. The first person spins the dreidel and waits until it lands on a side. Bellow is a graph of what happens when each letter is landed on!

If the pot becomes empty, all players add one piece of their gelt back into the pot. If the player runs out of gelt, they lose, but if they end up with all the gelt, they win!!!

This game is perfect if you have a bunch of little ones hanging around! All you will need for this game is chocolate and the dot stickers you would normally use for a garage sale! On the stickers, write a letter or number. Make sure you do each letter or number twice so it has a match.Grab 16 chocolates (can be more of course!) and place one sticker on the bottom of each one. Mix up the chocolates and set them in a row. The first person looks under two chocolates and tries to find a match. Time to use your memory! Keep going until all of the matches are found! Winner will get to eat the most chocolate!

memory-game

Now this game is SUPER fun! What you will need is a box of Saran Wrap and a bunch of goodies (can be candy, toys, Mud Pie clothes, what ever you want!) Before the game begins, a few people will need to help create the ball! Once it is ready to go, the fun begins! The first person starts with the ball in their lap. They try to unwrap as much as they can while the person to their right rolls a pair of dice. Once that person rolls doubles, the ball moves to the next player and it begins again! There are a lot of goodies in the ball, so keep what you unwrap as a gift! There are other ways you can make the game more fun, like blindfold the person unwrapping, make them wear mittens, use two balls for large groups, or make the person stand up while unwrapping! This game is fun for all ages!

This holiday season, appreciate time with your family. Every day is a gift, so enjoy it! After you have posted your Mud Pie goodies using #mudpiegift, put your phone away and live in the moment! This Game Night: Holiday Edition will be one that creates memories that will last a lifetime!

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend Mud Pie loves!
