A few days ago, good friend and Massage Therapist from Portland, Oregon, Andrew Jecklin sent me this photo of his daughter’s play Post Office. She uses the little miniature greeting cards and envelopes that I create from scratch as part of her mail delivery system. Kids love these little cards!
There are now 10 different sets of greeting cards listed in the shop now to choose from.
And just for size reference, they are tiny!
Thanks Andrew for sending me this photo!
I love the feel of fine wood and turning an ordinary box into a beautiful piece of home decor that both function as decoration and have use in storing precious personal items.
Update – comments are now closed. I will announce the winner of the four pack of Valentine’s on Tuesday! xoxo
Over the last week I have been working on a couple of new designs for Valentine’s Cards. And they are completed and listed in the shop now. The first is called Hearts on Strings and the latter is entitled The Flamboyant Heart.
Each set contains six matching greeting cards and six envelopes. Each card measures 4.25 by 5.5 inches (10,5cm by 14cm). They are blank inside so that you can write your own special greeting.
Leave a comment on this post and you’ll be entered to win a set of four greeting cards. The set contains two Flamboyant Heart’s and two Hearts on Strings cards. This set of four greeting cards were my test prints until I got the colours corrected. Rest assured they are still cute as ever! I’ll draw the winner on Monday night.
And if you really want to make a big statement with the one you love, don’t forget that I create Tickled Pink Hearts in miniature greeting card sets of eight as posted earlier. These little sets although tiny take me longer to produce than their larger cousins.
Each set of Valentine’s themed cards are listed in the Valentines 2010 Section of my shop along with some other items I feel would make beautiful gifts for Valentine’s Day to the ones you love. Order early as my supplies of each item is limited and then there is that shipping part to! I want them to arrive on time for gift giving.
Something happened over the last month and my handpainted boxes began selling on Etsy. This makes me smile as I love painting little boxes to hold your precious items in.
I’m setting up a painting station in the living room directly between the sunroom to the right and studio on the left just beside the bookshelf. I need an area that can get messy with needing to be cleaned up.
Although, I have a large studio every inch of it is used for something other than messy creative work. I have the computer desk for the 27″ iMac; the printing table with two printers, the drafting table which is used as my cutting and packaging area, all of which can not have water, paint or bits of paper, sandpaper, wood, dust or paintbrushes hanging around on their surfaces.
So, I’m expanding into the living room today and I’ll be painting directly underneath an illustration I created years ago entitled:
The Old Men in the Tree
who’ll grant you a wish…
Each box set is listed in the Handpainted boxes and objects section of my art shop.
I am happy to introduce two new sets of miniature greeting cards featuring the magnolia blossom and the pussy willow blossom. The introduction of these two blossom themed sets brings the total number in the series available to collect and use to ten!
Use them for gift tags, scrapbooking, dollhouse miniatures or anything else your heart fancy’s.
Each was created using my original pussy willow and magnolia ink drawings. They are printed with HP Vivera inks on heavy matte paper. The envelopes and seals were hand punched, folded and glued together by own hand(s) shown in the first photo for size reference.
Each set includes:
•8 cards (2 of each blossom)
•8 white envelopes
•8 seals (colours may vary)
Greeting card size – 1 3/8″ x 7/8″ (35mm by 22mm)
Envelope size – 1 1/2″ x 1″ (38mm by 25mm)
Seals size – 5/16″ (8mm)
Each set is listed in the shop within the paper goods section. Do remember that holiday shipping deadlines are fast approaching especially for international orders that are traveling outside of Canada (which is where I live). I will be posting these deadlines soon. Order early if you want your order to arrive in time for the holidays. Thank you!
