MuD JaNuaRY LauNCH

Hello Chickens,
I am very very very uber busy with June's launch-which needs to be completed by Monday, but wanted to share January's OUR NAME IS MUD launch with you here. Because that's how my hamster wheel turns. So come along for a tour of just some of the items that will be making their way to fine retailers near you in about four months.

First, we have all new Halloween items.

These pumpkins come with an attached LED light so you can safely fall asleep drunk and not burn the house down. Don't you wish everything was like that? Next up we have two candy jars....


Here's a Lorrie Veasey factoid: I only eat the top part off the candy corn. I'll eat a lot of it--but only the tiny triangle at the top. And yes, you wouldn't want to put your hand in my jar as a result. We have LOTS of other great new Halloween items, but I'll save them and instead talk about some of my favorite new Christmas items.

I got a chance to work for the first time with the much beloved cast of characters from Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. They were a lovely bunch, except the short one that kept wanting to fix my teeth. Here are a few Rudolph items.


Just a little sneak peek-remember There's Always Tomorrow.....
Next a few items for pet lovers: here are some new plush pillows.


Also some change trays



Here's BOBBLING TO BETHLEHEM

And some new Judaica items like this one:


We also had all new items for BABY, MOM'S DAY and DAD'S DAY which I'll share in another post. So there you have it: just like we were together at a gift show. Except without the sore feet. Wish me luck on June launch and remember, if you have an idea for a product you'd like to see we'll pay a WHOLE FIVE DOLLARS for any ideas we use.

They're all great! Very clever! We say "if you stop believing in Santa, you get clothes", which is sooo true. But I like the underwear line, the half dressed Santa is perfect for it!

Have a great show!!!

SOMETHING HAPPENED SOMEWHERE TURNING said...

I can already picture myself drinking from my Question Authority mug and then setting it down next to my Bobbling to Bethlehem scene. Cool stuff.

Postscript: I just loved your Caption This post.

Jennifer said...

Shannon and I just looked at all your new stuff and we loved it! Shannon's favorite was the sign that says "if you stop believing in Santa you get underware." She's already requested it of me for her to hang on her bedroom door next Christmas.

Megan said...

I love it! Good luck!

Oh, and I don't get Mensch. Perhaps moving from Kansas to Georgia did nothing to broaden my knowledge of such subjects, no? *Making mental note to travel more...*

Lo said...

Never met anyone (ELSE) who eats the tiny triangle only. I do that. Even I know it's weird. Hope the year rocks for you commercially. I really love your stuff. I'm still swooning over the ornament.

Spatula said...

Love it all, but especially the pillows. And the mensch mug - it is not made of clay. It is made of win. I will be here all day. Tip your waitress.

KLS said...

I LOVE it all!!! Especially the little punkins and the "Ghosts were people too". I can't wait, I already told my husband about the bobble heads and he said we have to get it! Good work lady!

OHN said...

Thanks for the sneak peek! BTW, last night I had the house to myself for 3 hours and I was watching Tivo'd shows...I swear I saw one of your mugs...I think it was on Desperate Housewives..very cool.

sheila said...

Lorrie, you make MAGIC with mud!! I am in love with the bobble-head nativity, and will have to put that on the wish list!
You are one clever cat!!

Miss Thystle said...

Those pumpkins are just the cutest and the "Ghosts were people too"? HILLAR.

Give me some of your talent and I'll tell you where I hid your wine.

Nadine Hightower said...

I love several of these but my fav is the candy corn!!

PearlsOfSomething said...

Love them!!!

I'm going to need the cat pillow. Dh insisted that he hated cats. Then one of ours fell out of a window sill and knocked himself out for a few seconds. We thought he had killed himself. In those few brief seconds, he let his kitty love show, but he still tries to deny it.

He thinks I don't see him cuddling the fur ball late at night.

Jane! said...

You make such fantastic stuff. Where do you get all the ideas??

I thought you were totally kidding me about the trophy. I will go send my info like RIGHT NOW!!

blairspage said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE all of your new stuff!!! You are so creative!

Hugs - Tiff

Kimberly said...

I cannot stop chuckling at Ghosts were People too. And LED Jack O' Lanterns? My kinda pumpkin.

Rachael said...

I especially love the "You are not the boss of me" one. Wow, you guys plan ahead!

Debbie said...

Five dollars? Let's see. I blog four hours a day and have made - squat - so that is a huge increase in my salary!
I love these. The Rudolph ones are great and I love the sign about the underwear. These are going to be a huge hit.

zakary said...

I LOVE it! You are so rad. I need my 2009 Enesco catalog. We are moving the store to a much better location and we might actually start making some money up in this B. We are going to the Denver Mart in February (kill me).

Debra W said...

Fantastic. One day you are going to have to tell us how you come up with all of your fabulous ideas! I adore all of your new stuff! It makes me happy just looking at it. You are amazing.

Love,
Debbie

I didn't know we could submit ideas. How cool: "Generation X Rocks the Casbah." LOL!

I like the candy corn jar very much, and the Ghosts were people, too. And, the Nativity and the You're Not the Boss of Me. How fun it all is. It's all so positive and upbeat.
