As most of you know we recently moved into a new house (thank goodness for that), our first order of business in our new house was redecorating the big girl’s room.  I had a vision of purples and blues and cute accessories and bedding and we ended up with something very close to what I had envisioned since we decided to take the house!  Though the girls were absolutely ecstatic to have a “cute room” I think I was a little more excited to get to design the room of my dreams, hey, it’s alright to live vicariously through your kids every once in a while…right?  My favorite part of decorating the girls’ room was picking out all of the accessories that truly made it their own and one of my absolute favorite accessories is a personalized fairy print from Kranky Krab that matches the room perfectly.

I hadn’t heard about the Kranky Krab (love the name by the way) until very recently, but as soon as I had a chance to check out the website I knew that I would fall in love with the designs in a big way.  The Kranky Krab is the brainchild of designer and illustrator Tracy Hopkins and she is very good at what she does.  Check out Tracy’s bio below as well as a little more information about Kranky Krab!

 

About Tracy Hopkins

Hello!
My name is Tracy Hopkins. I'm a designer and illustrator originally
from Chicago but now living in Orlando, FL.


I've recently started to sell my children's art products and I wanted
to introduce myself and my products. At the same time, I'd like to
inquire about review and giveaway opportunities if you feel my
products are consistent with your website message.
I've been working with several Mom bloggers offering a $25 gift
certificate giveaway and / or a review product of their choice.
Since much of my work is personalized, it's best to let people pick
what they'd like themselves.


A little about me...
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
K-6.


In 2006 I went freelance and have continued to work for them as well
as National Geographic School Publishers and Harcourt Religion
Publishers.


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.

Aside from Tracy’s designs being absolutely whimsical and adorable everything is 100% handmade, including the frames, mats, and magnets and that is very impressive to this artistically challenged mama.  We recently received one of Tracy’s designs to review, naturally I chose a print that complimented the girl’s room.  When I received the print I was so impressed at the quality, the print itself if vibrant and flawless and the picture frame compliments the print beautifully.  I chose a personalized fairy on a purple background (which matches the purple in the girl’s room) to review I had the print personalized with my daughter Savanna’s name since the fairy in the print reminded me of her…and it’s pure perfection!  Of course, Kranky Krab offers so much more than fairy prints; personal prints, letter magnets (with adorable designs) and name frames are just a few of the many items that the Kranky Krab offers!  You don’t have to take my word for it, just check out the personalized fairy print that I had made for Savanna and decide for yourself!

A close up of the fairy print…does the purple match perfectly or what!?!

 

That’s just too adorable right?  And did I mention that this print is only $25 AND that all orders to the US and Canada ship FREE until July 1, 2011?  So what are you waiting for…go check out Kranky Krab and give your little one something to smile about every time they walk into their room!
