Odette Celebrates Christmas

Princess Odette loves celebrating with the Mascot Miracles Foundation! She wore her Christmas dress (you'll recognize it from her Christmas movie!) to holiday events all over the kingdom for children with life threatening illnesses. The Polar Express Ride took children on a historic train to visit the North Pole. They saw Santa, danced with elves, and sang with Odette!

She also attended tree lightings, holiday concerts, and Christmas parties at a care home. One of her favorite memories this season was rounding up some new friends for an impromptu Christmas carol concert!

They had lots of fun even if the couldn't quite remember all the words to the 12 Days of Christmas. They liked their fun, made-up lyrics better anyway!

This year at The Swan Princess we have been working hard to move all of our inventory into a brand new warehouse! Preparations for this have included organizing all of our art cels and pencil sketches for easier transport and storage. As we have been sorting through the incredible animation museum that is our warehouse, we have found some really incredible and unique pieces of Swan Princess history that were just too swanderful to not share with our amazing fans! Therefore, we would like to proudly present our new series:

Awesome Things We Found in the Warehouse Today!

 

Between holiday shopping, wrapping, cooking, baking, decorating, traveling, parties, visits, and calls, all while keeping up on your regular responsibilities, this time of year can leave all of us a little frazzled. This rough sketch of Puffin from when he flies into a tree, perfectly fits our inner monologue. We especially love the written direction to "keep brows extra furry"

Hang in there Swan Princess fans and may your holidays be merry and bright!

You can purchase these one-of-a-kind swan princess art pieces, or another pencil sketch or art cel by emailing odette@swanprincessseries.com

 

Its December and the birthday we are celebrating this month is none other than the brave and loyal Prince Derek! This makes Prince Derek a Sagittarius zodiac sign and a Blue Topaz birthstone
Sagittarius are known for being generous, curious, and energetic with a great sense of humor.
  
They love to be outdoors and are very adventurous.
They are also impatient and will say anything, even if its a bit tactless. 
They are honest and love to explore other places and cultures.
The Blue Topaz symbolizes wisdom and is used to find the perfect way to get success.
  
No wonder Prince Derek always knows just how to save the day!
Is your birthday in December or do you just love the color blue?
 
The best way to ensure your holiday decorations look exactly as you want them to is to make them yourself! And what better way to add a dash of Swan Princess to your castle than with our exclusive fabrics.
 
Any one of these patterns would be beautiful as a tree skirt, holiday dress, table runner, frilled garland, or Christmas stocking! There are 9 different patterns of 100% cotton fabric.

Question: Why isn't Bromley in the later Swan Princess films?

Answer: Because as the storylines became more intricate more focus needed to be placed on other characters so his story arc was phased out. We like to believe he met a beautiful baker and settled down in a village where nothing dangerous or surprising ever happens and he can entertain the other villagers with tales of his many heroics.
Dear Diary 

Ornament Day is here! I believe it’s time for me to put my mother’s book down to focus on my present family for a while. With everything I’ve learned however, I wanted to make an ornament inspired by her. I commissioned our kingdom’s ornament maker to make an ornament of Alise, my mother and I, as if we were posing for a family portrait. I hoped it symbolized that she never really left us. Her spirit will always be with us for every Christmas and felt amongst the flowers of Swan Lake.
