Get Celtic Knot designs on T-Shirts, IPad cases, and more!
I have Native American blood and follow a Native American religion. I also have a significant amount of Scots blood, so when I was designing the tattoos of my spirit helpers, Spider and Bear, I drew them as Celtic Knots. Years later, while courting my Irish wife, I drew Celtic Knots for her children. The first was a cat for her oldest daughter, Kitty. She looked at my tats and the kitty I drew for Kitty and noted that we had an Arachnid, Bear and Cat and should start an Alphabet. That was the beginning of The Celtic Knot Alphabet Coloring Book.
The Celtic Ranch, in Weston, MO, about an hour North of Kansas City, was the first store to carry it. When we checked back a few weeks later to determine if they needed more copies we were advised that customers were asking when we would do something new. So, we started our second Celtic Knot coloring book. Later that same year a friend of mine took interest and started coloring some of the images. Gwen has a good color sense and the results she created were striking. It was suggested that others might like to buy these beauties on T-shirts and we opened a shop on Cafe Press. That was in 2008.
By December 2013 we had added Zazzle, Society6 and Deviant Art websites to Cafe Press to distribute the colored images and we were up to 14 books with 4 more in the works. We have also been attending local Renaissance and Celtic Festivals as vendors. Many artisans we met along the way asked to use our images on items as varied as leather, embroidery, wood and even egg carving!
In May of 2014 we visited the St. Louis Renaissance Fest and had the good fortune to see some dear friends we had lost touch with. Tom and Pat Hooper were actually my wife's introduction to participating in Ren Faires by giving her the opportunity to work in their store when they still had one at the KCRF. They have a beautiful website for the Pewter which they craft themselves.
As we start the 2017 Holiday, Season Shared in Wisdom is almost ready. I should have it up on the site and available for purchase in the next couple of days. I have a friend from Venezuela who has offered to translate the quotes that accompany the images into Spanish. It'll be the first of our books to be translated!
We have drawn a lot of knots and made a lot of new friends. We look forward to more knots and more friends this year. Feel free to browse the shop and share your opinions, experiences and your Celtic Pride!
