ABC Kids Expo 2009

As promised...

Here are a few pics from my newest collection of Wall -Hangings, Picture Frames, and In
fant Onesies, that made its debut at the September ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas.
Our very first Trade Show- wow, what an experience...
Sometimes we felt as if we were melting away ( it was pretty hot in Vegas, at 103 F), setting up our booth in the convention center took us longer as anticipated, a full 8 1/2 hours ( from 9 pm - 5:30 am), one day before the show opened. Oh, did I mentioned the convention center was not air conditioned... Well, my sweet Husband who was helping me, and I had our workout.
After 3 hours of sleep, we spent the rest of the day at the pool with our kids, who tagged along with us for the week.
Oh, I also forgot to mention that I was 36 weeks pregnant.

Thanks to all the nice visitors and customers. The Show was a huge success for Lalilu, Inc. , we enjoyed so much to get to meet so many interesting and inspiring people, customers, and designers. We made made many international contacts and friends as well.
Hope to see everyone again at next years show!

Have a great week!

Welcoming Baby # 4

For those of you who don't know, I have been on a blogging break for some time as we have been blessed with a beautiful Baby Boy, and I have been busy taking care of my little darling.
I also finished my new product line of Infant Wear, Wall-hangings, and Picture frames which made its debut at the ABC Kids Expo last month in Las Vegas. Well it has certainly been an exiting and very busy Summer for us, getting ready for baby # 4, and our first exhibition. More on the Expo, and new products on another post.
Now that I'm back in the virtual world, I'll try to blog more often.
Meanwhile, thank you for supporting Lalilu Studio the way you always have.

xoxo, Diana

New Palette!

I've got my new colors today, and oh boy I have to confess, I felt like a Kid at Christmas opening presents. As I really like painting with oil lately, I have settled on "Charvin Oil Color" a product of France. They are extremely fine pigmented and very very creamy to paint with. My favorite so far.
I have many many new ideas bursting out of my sketchbook for new children's murals, don't know which one to paint first though, and per request of some of my customers, I will include a few contemporary art pieces in this ye
ars collection. Among many others,
I am a huge fan of Andy Warhol, and Roy Lichtenstein, and have always admired their sense of modern art.
Even though I have painted many comics on canvas in the past for my own private collection, I am trying somethings completely different, and it wont be a can of soup either.

Anyway, as I'm painting along, my two precious daughters just love to do the same, and in their sweet little way sneaking into
Mommy's colors when I'm not looking, which they know is a big no-no. But this is what their came up with today. Another master piece waiting to be framed and hung.

Have a great weekend everyone!

P.S. Here is my favorite pic from our recent trip to Vegas. I love how beautiful they decorated the Bellagio, celebrating the Chinese New Year!

Happy Winter!

Snow day (Nicolaj, Nastassja & Desiree having fun in the snow)

Whew, my first blog entry! As I'm setting out to continue my new years resolution plan, of setting a few things in motion, physically, mentally, and financially, you know the usual... setting up a proper diet and exercise plan in January, ... that has just moved into February's agenda.
Creating more paintings. I'm itching to paint, and have too many i
deas that need to be put on canvas, and know that spring is approaching quickly, I am also working on a view more clothing designs that I want to introduce to you in the near future.
Now that the holidays are over, and the Kids are back in school, I can actually uninterrupted slip into my slippers, take my morning coffee, go into my studio and do what I'm doing best.
As I'm writing to you, I'm looking outside the window, and it's snowing like crazy. It is starting to look like the perfect picture to paint, - like "Winter wonderland".

Mentally: my resolution,- take up a view subjects of interest, -stay focused on one of the time (my hardest task), and stay sane with my kids. Financially: my resolution, - stay away from the stock market this year.
What is your resolution?
So long, until next time!!!
