Our sweet mini cards, or enclosures, are the perfect complement to a floral bouquet or gift. They are the perfect add-on to help make your sentiment that much more special. Plus, each tiny card is hand-detailed with a bit of sparkly glitter. Oooh! Ahhh!
Our folksy Holiday ornaments card is featured in this month's "Fresh Picks" section of the Stationery Trends e-newsletter, "Trend E-News"! What a terrific way to kick-off the holiday season. Super snazzy. Thank you, Stationery Trends! #stationerytrendsmagazine
Wow!! I am so honored and flattered that the editor of stunning Flutter Magazine asked me to create a special "Flutter Paper" page for their 10th issue! Like, wha'?!
Each edition of Flutter Magazine has a "Flutter Paper" page- a visually inspiring mixed media print that reflects the breathtaking designs and color palettes that steal the show in the featured weddings of every issue. As the editor states, it's "Designed in collaboration with admired artists from around the world, these perforated pages are easily removable and repurposable." Readers are encouraged to frame them, wrap up a pretty package or two, craft paper flowers - whatever they fancy!"
In return, each artist (like yours truly), along with a snapshot of their work, is mentioned within the editor's letter at the beginning of the publication. Each artist's work is credited on the back side of the printed artwork.
If you're not familiar with Flutter, it's a quarterly, high-end, fine art, print publication with national distribution in the United States through Barnes & Noble as well as select independent retailers.
All pre-order magazines will ship on Thursday, June 9 and will begin appearing in stores the week of June 20.
We're so excited!!

Our company mascot, a.k.a. our son, Danny, is 3 years old and at the age in which Halloween is entrenched in his mind and he is giddy with anticipation. Danny was a police man for Halloween last year and he wants to be one again this year which I'm delighted with. His exuberance for holidays is enthralling. It reignites my imagination and brings back childhood feelings of excitement over simple things like dressing up in costumes and carving pumpkins. My dad was in charge of pumpkin carving when I was kid. We'd make an event of it: pick out the perfect pumpkin, bring it home, wipe it off, draw a classic Halloween pumpkin face with the gappy smile, triangle nose and eyes and scoop out the slimy stuff. My mother would bake the seeds in the oven for snacking on which we thought was neat until we realized that they were too tough to chew and didn't digest very well.
Now I run a business, a household, a family and if there's time left over, I get to maintain my hygiene, ha ha. I deeply miss the innocence of childhood, how safe and comforting it was to not have bills to worry about and investments to consider! I worry a lot about Danny's well-being and safety. Sometimes so much so that it takes my breath away for a couple of seconds. I know that feeling is unending. Growing up is painful and wonderful at the same time. Being an adult is a continual inner search for peace, positivity and fortitude. I have my faith, my family and a warm, comfortable home. These are the blessings I focus on particularly when I start to miss the innocence of my own childhood.
Watching and re-living the excitement of Halloween through Danny is wondrous. He inspires me to find what remains of my younger self and I apply that nostalgia and sentiment to the artwork for my little greeting cards. I hope- I really hope- that it will evoke memories and light into all big kids who receive them.
