Introducing..... Sir Dustin!!!


Happy New Year!

We are so thrilled to announce that this year we have an awesome new artist, Dustin Pike.

Dustin is well known for his cute and whimsical dragons, amongst other characters, although he has not had much exposure in rubber. He brings with him a HUGE following of fans who have been crafting with his images for several years now, however we will have his first broad range release in rubber due in just a weeks time! We have been busy pressing Dustin's new images and getting them out to our retailers, so that you may contact them and order the new images on the release date.

We will have our on line catalogue updated to show the new images on January 20th. Just go to the purple search hippo on the catalogue page of our website, and put in the words HOTP. I guarantee that you will smile and maybe even have a little laugh or two!

Welcome Dustin!! I cannot say enough how thrilled and blessed we feel to have you with us, and to be able to have your images in rubber!!

We have many new exciting surprises for our friends this year, so stay tuned as we update our website and plan new releases in the coming months!

With Warm Wishes! ~ Tina-Marie
