Hope you are enjoying this dampish weather as much as my cyclamen.
I'm writing to cordially invite you, my very best of friends, to join me at my Very Special Open Studio Days this December: 12th and 13th between 12 noon and 6pm at Brown Dog Studio in Hove. Map here.
There will be some fine framed sketches, some rather dear and lovingly framed original pieces, Doris Dog sculptures, Automata made of driftwood including my brand new (I mean soon to be completed) "Who's Fallen Out Of The Boat, Then?" pull-the-handle-and-see-how-it- moves thing!
There will be specially customised and exclusive boxes of Thorntons chocs, so you can give a little Mustard in a yummy Belgian chocolates kind of a way, as well as the usual horde of posters, limited edition prints, Christmas cards and such like. And the return of the Hot Popcorn Machine, mulled wine, £1 Lucky Dip and a thoughtful selection of cake to keep you going throughout your visit. But no 2010 calendars I'm afraid...
And although I imagine more of the original pieces, sketches and many of the range of Christmas Goodies may be snaffled up on the Saturday, I am offering you loyal fans a Special Password discount for Sunday. Just say Doris sent you crackers, and we will give you a 10% discount off your purchases on Sunday. Maybe you will come back twice?
Announcing the winners of Mustard Favourite Passwords competition that I set in the last email to fans... The winners are: Laura Eagles, Louise Erskine, Lesley Gray and Jill Phillips.
So please send me your addresses and I will get your lovely Artist Proofs off to you pronto .... Well done to the 157 of you that came up with the right answers!
If there are any unclaimed original pieces at the end of the weekend, then I will post them up for sale on the home page of my interweb site. And if you feel like cutting the cardboard out of your Christmas Greetings, please avail yourself of our range of free Mustardy Yuletide Ecards (Here: http://www.samtoft.co.uk/ecards.php)
Thanks for listening and I hope to see many of you at the Stude at the weekend!
All the very best to you all,
Sam Toft and the Mustards
