Questions we've had about the grab bags. With our answers...

Your original watercolors are usually a whole lot more expensive. Why are these so inexpensive?

Yes, it's true. We could probably sell them at the price of the original commissioned watercolors. But here's what we've learned lately: that we do more & better work when we let it move freely. We can't tell you how often lately we've had this clear message: the work we do trusts us with more of itself when we let it go out into the world...

The truth is this is an exercise in deeper trust for us, discovering what we're going to be used for next. So, will we kick ourselves at some point, thinking we could've sold it for more? Probably. But that's a good thing to tangle with, too. Since, in the end, we get to love the world our own way & this is one of the ways we're playing with. Making beautiful & affordable work...

I'd like to know what the additional pen & ink drawings are going to look like before I get a grab bag. Can you give me a selection so I can choose? Or send me pictures?

The answer to both of those is no. Here's the thing that's easy to forget. There are only two of us at Flying Edna. (Unless you count our dog, Yoshi. But he's one of those co-workers who has a lot of opinions, but doesn't really help when we're doing orders. HA.). Which means you're going to get our attention & care in what we're doing, but not a long back & forth email conversation that'll take hours & hours of time from our side.

When we put together the grab bags, yes, we take into account any notes you've given us, but it still comes down to us feeling into the lilt & delight of what we're sending to you & then moving on to the next thing to play with...

The one I wanted already sold. Will you do another one?

Probably not. There are so many happy accidents when Kai does an original & it's basically impossible to recreate it. It's the reason we do prints, because that's the closest to the original. But, if you absolutely want a new original that's more or less like the first one, we're happy to talk with you about it. But it'll be a commissioned piece. Because that's what it'll take. 

Will you do these on greeting cards?

Again, probably not. Because the thing that we're liking best lately is making pieces that speak from our hearts to yours. Since we print everything to order, greeting cards take an enormous amount of time away from that. Yes, we understand that you'd love to send greeting cards to everyone you know. But until we figure out how we can magically snap our fingers & have them appear, it's not at the top of our list.
