Today, SwirlyBugz turns 3. Wow! I can't believe it's been that long. I'm very thankful to have the very best customers & fans. I wish I had started counting the number of ladybugs I've drawn since the start. If I had to guess, I would say I'm now in the MILLIONS! That would be a fun number to know. I do know, IT'S BEEN A LOT! With more drawn and swirled daily. I've got some new items coming to the shop this week. And I am going to start on some new designs for 8x8 artwork soon. Anything special you'd like to see? Email me, let me know on Facebook. What should I swirl next? Would love to hear from YOU! Thanks! Cheers from SwirlyBugz!
SwirlyBugz brings to you, this beautiful Christmas Tree swirled by my amazing 11 year old, Emily. She has the most Christmas spirit I've ever seen. She is so kind & generous and thinking of everyone this season. Very special & creative.
You can actually WATCH HER draw it here, because she recorded it! Enjoy!

it's who's around it."

SwirlyBugz brings to you...my NEW (this season) glittery bling ornament!
DID YOU KNOW Glitter as we know it today wasn’t invented until 1934. According to glitter lore, New Jersey machinist Henry Ruschmann accidentally invented the stuff after he took a load of scrap metals and plastics and ground it up very fine. Some reports claim that his invention took off during World War II, when American access to Germany’s glittering diamantine was cut off. Though he died in 1989, his company Meadowbrook Inventions is still in the glitter business today, peddling more than 20,000 different kinds of glitter.

Five golden rings...
I heard The 12 Days of Christmas in my car this morning, while on my way to the post office, shipping off some more Etsy orders. "Five Golden Rings"...hmm, how can I fit the gold into my 12 Swirls of Christmas, I had a few ideas, but once I considered my Swirly Goods, I realized, there's a lot of GOLD in there! So, here are the Golden Stars of the SwirlyBugz collection.
