Say hello to my recent commissioned artwork: The Superhero Karate Girl!
She’s fast, smart, and never looses her cool. With her trusty side kick she’s busy saving the world from cooked mushy peas and mountains of math word problems.

Prints of the Superhero Karate Girl are available at our Etsy Shop. If you are interested in requesting your own custom artwork or custom print, please send me an email describing your own idea. I look forward to hearing from you!

I’m happy to announce that AbbyDora Design will be participating in another art and craft festival! This time I’ll be in the Holiday Market, sponsored by the Junior League of Rochester. The Holiday Market not only is a great opportunity to support local artists, but all the ticket proceeds from this event help support the Junior League’s GIRLSrock! program, which benefits the lives of girls in the Rochester community.

Here are the details:
October 15th & 16th
Saturday 10am-5pm
Sunday 10am-4pm
Fair & Expo Center 2695 E. Henrietta Rd, Rochester, NY
$5/person, free to children ages 12 and under

There will be over 100 booths filled with holiday gift opportunities! Get a jump on your holiday shopping and holiday decorations at the AbbyDora Design booth. I’ll have a great selection of Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Chanukah cards. There also will be festive paper garlands to add touches of the holiday season to your Christmas trees, banisters, windows, or mantles. And of course, in addition to the new holiday products, I’ll have prints of my children’s illustration and a whole selection of cards for birthdays and other reasons to celebrate. Send a smile with an AbbyDora Design card.

Spread the word!
Pass it on!
And I hope you to see you at the Rochester Holiday Market If you still aren’t sure…I’ll be once again giving away delicious cookies with their own recipe card. Perhaps the new cookie recipe for your own Holiday Cookie Exchange?

Park Ave Festival

by abby on July 26, 2011 | Comment

Rochester, New York is a great city in the Summer. I swear people come out of the wood work to celebrate the warm weather and the sunshine—which makes for some great outdoor fun! There are free outdoor concerts every week and even ART festivals about once a month. It’s with great excitement that I’m happy to announce that AbbyDora Design will have our own booth at the 2011 Park Ave Festival!

The Park Ave Fest will take place on:
Saturday, August 6, 2011 & Sunday, August 7, 2011
Saturday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Sunday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

It’s a magical weekend that turns the Park Ave tree lined street from Alexander Street to Culver Road into one of the largest and most fun community gatherings in Western New York! The AbbyDora Design booth will be near Jines Restaurant and the Wilson Farms on Park Ave.

Be sure to keep an eye out for my booth banner as you stroll along the walk.

You’ll find Playful Paper Goods for purchase inside the AbbyDora Design booth. I’ll have all sorts of fun individual cards for birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, and just because you’re thinking of someone you love. I’ll also have card sets for Christmas, Chanukah, thank yous, and other sets that make great gifts. I’ll also have paper goodies as party decorations for bridal and baby showers.

Finally, there will be original artwork for sale and limited edition prints as well. In preparation for the festival I’ve created a new collage-gouache series that’s perfect to decorate a child’s bedroom wall. Here’s a sneak peak at one of these new pieces.

With so much to see and shop you won’t want to miss this event! I do hope that if you are in the area you will stop by and say hello.
