New Cards and Birthday Wishes

Today is my dear Brother’s birthday. I cannot believe how old he is (and how old *I* am!). He’s turning 22 and, while I would love to do a card based off of a famous lady-singer’s song about this age, I will refrain.

In the spirit of BIRTHDAYS, here are TWO NEW CARD DESIGNS that I’ve designed and released just this week. They are currently available only in my Etsy Shop, but I hope to bring them to brick-and-mortar stores soon.

ASL Sign Language BirthdaySprinkles not included :-)

The first card was inspired by my good friend’s daughters.The youngest daughter was born with some hearing loss and the whole family is learning sign language as a way to help her communicate. Both girls are practically fluent in American Sign Language, and are both under the age of 6.  They are a wonderful family and are inspiring in so many ways.

You could gift this “Sign Language Happy Birthday” card to someone who has hearing loss or is learning ASL. It is also a good card to have on-hand for friend, family, or even teacher birthdays.

Typewriter BirthdayIconic design (with glitter accents)

The second set of cards was inspired by vintage typewriters. I was looking to design a card that is both simple and elegant  that could be a good card to give someone who you are in a professional relationship with, a friend, or someone who has no need for flashy cards.

Both card designs would be great for any-time gift giving and are blank inside for your personal message.

DIY, Halloween

I’ve got my EYE on you

Eyeball Wreath

The EYES have it!

Halloween is my favorite time of year. I love the changing seasons, and the chance to decorate my house with spiders and pumpkins is always a HUGE plus. This year I channeled my inner Martha Stuart and made some fun decorations!

Eyeball Wreath

Keep your EYES peeled.

This Eyeball Wreath was made from scratch by yours truly. It has is a wired chenille-like material for the base and is adorned with glittery eyeballs, glittery black and orange balls, and a glittery spider. I want to leave this Beauty up year ’round. (We’ll see what the boyfriend says about that…)

In the meanwhile, I will be working on making some new wreaths. I have some ideas in mind for some non-traditional holiday wreaths too. Perhaps even some wreaths that would actually look good on your door year ’round. Stay tuned!
