Mother’s Day Run

I had an order of 150 Mother’s Day cards to my church. The Creative Arts director asked for 150 Mother’s Day cards to be placed in the mailboxes for our members. The cards were to be open on the inside and a note placed inside the card telling them these are gifts to them or for them to use as card gifts to a mom they know, a friend who might need such a card on this day, or to their own mother. Sort of a pass it along card for Moms.

I hope to update this periodically with as many of the photos of the variety of cards I’m making. The cards were all to be unique, very few are similar, although that is bound to happen with such a huge run and short time frame.  This was a huge opportunity for my business.

I’m thrilled to provide this to my church family. Enjoy the many designs.

Psycho Bags

I was asked to make these bags for my husband’s secretary. She wanted to put little treats in them and give them to her friends. My husband called the easter bag he gave to her an Easter Psycho bag. One side was a crazy funny stamp art and the other side was cool classy and upscale, with pearlized beads.  She loved the name.

Now I’m getting orders for my Psycho bags. For those that have a moment of crazy, impulsive and then the other side is for the moments when you are calm, cool and classy. Cute idea my husband had. We made a run of 20 of these Psycho bags.  Now we’re going to take it to eBay.

Enjoy.

All Those Markers

What to do with all those markers? Here’s a photo of a project that works well for the crafter on the go. Put all your markers in a cute little tote – and use ceiling light tile grid, cut to size. To insure sturdy keeping, I suggest a layer of cut styrofoam underneath, so that […]
