Etsy Design Award Finalist

Etsy Design Award Finalist

This autumn I got an email letting me know that my product submission for the Etsy Design Awards had made it to the finals of the competition.  At first I was skeptical, and thought the email was a phishing scam, but when I re-read it I realized it was real! I could not believe it!

The scene is magical with the music box playing "All The Pretty Horses," and all the dynamic shots of the mobile as Kip (Graham Phillips) looks for clues in Waniya's room (Sydney Schafer). The film is beautifully made, and you can feel how the story has a special meaning to the Phillips brothers as you watch it. You can get it on DVD or BluRay on Amazon now and see it too!   The excitement started back in the winter of 2017, when I got a message...
