I’ve asked Ronnie Kell, our Creative and Merchandising Director, to share some of his custom-designed gifts from the new catalog. Today we’re featuring one of his (and my!) favorites. Plus, we’re giving some away! From Ronnie:
Hey, y’all! Halloween is right around the corner for you, but (believe it or not) I’ve been working on it for an entire year! Here’s a peek at one of my favorite items I designed for the fall catalog that hit mailboxes last week.
After traveling the world last year, I realized that “monsters” would be a big theme for the upcoming season. I wanted to bring my own flavor to this theme, so I worked to design something with real energy and life for our fall catalog. I came up with these adorable monster totes featuring Whacky Jack, Bonkers Bat, and Freaky Frankie.
Designing them was so much fun; they really took on a personality all their own! For me, it was all about getting the eyes just right. The end result is a keepsake that will thrill girls or boys (or anybody who is young-at-heart) for years to come!
In fact, I’ve already arranged to send one to each of my nieces and nephews: Costa, Remy, Ryder, Chapman, Blake, Alexander, Isabel, and Elijah. It will be a fun surprise from Uncle RoRo. (I hope they’re not reading this!) Plus, the little ones can use them for trick-or-treating on Halloween night.
Giveaway! Help us solve a dispute—we can’t decide which of these three monsters is our favorite. Leave a comment and answer this question: Which tote is your favorite and why? Three lucky winners will be selected to receive their choice!
(Comments must be received before midnight, September 28. Winner will be chosen by random selection. One entry per person.)
