New-ish

We have several greeting cards that have been in dire need of a facelift. Since I've been feeling inspired as of late, I got my ass in gear and set to redesigning. The trend seems to be following stripes and damask these days (this also happens to be a favorite combination of mine):









We're also gearing up for the National Stationery Show in May. Unfortunately, we won't be exhibiting (insert hysterical sobbing here). We made this decision based on the fact that I'll be about 9-months-pregnant when the show comes. I'm not sure if the world is ready for this scenario:

Me: Hi! Welcome to my fantastically designed booth. Can I show you some of my work?

Them: Ummm, no, thank you. I'm just looking.

Me: What? You *don't want* to see my stationery line? (the tears start to flow right about now) What the hell is wrong with you? I worked hard to get here! I'm tired, huge, and I neeeeeed you to tell me I'm pretty, dammit. (and now the anger) Look. At. My. Line. Before. I. Kill. You.

It's probably for the best.

LOVE your cards. Totally up my humor.

I'm looking to purchase the spring collection. But I love the new cards - are they available yet??

I'll check back or ask in my paypal "comments" section.

um, that was supposed to say "up my humor alley" Clearly I need more coffee to function this afternoon.

Personally, I think 'up my humor' is way better.

The new collection is available in my Etsy shop for the time being. They'll probably make it onto the website by this weekend...
