Custom Work.

Recently I've been working on some cool custom projects. Here's one I just completed for a woman in Australia. They are recipe cards for a bridal shower. The card will get mailed with the invitation, then the invitee brings the card to the shower with a recipe written on it for the couple. A cute idea!

More journal talk.

It's been quite fun working with a new medium. As much as I love cards, it is nice to try something different. The good news is I actually sold my first journal on Etsy yesterday!

I have one more 'orange poppy' left and recently listed a 'citrus' one. I have one blank journal left that might need to feature a hot pink poppy. I bought these four from another Etsy seller and for the life of me I couldn't find anymore anywhere online, until yesterday! Thanks to Dick Blick! I really love the quality of these little books. So, I will probably be ordering another batch soon...

New product - journals!

I bought these excellent kraft-paper covered journals a few weeks ago and had no idea what to do with them. Then today, I was rummaging around my studio and pulled out my poppy linocut that I made a while ago...and viola!

I have it listed in my Etsy shop. Soon to pink poppy journals!

100th Etsy Sale!

Woohoo! Today I sold my 100th item on Etsy! I've only been selling since the end of that ain't too shabby.

I should also mention that on top of the 100 items sold, I have gotten two wholesale orders from being discovered on Etsy.

And, of course, I have purchased many items too...mostly gifts and other goodies I couldn't bear to live without...ha!

I am not sure why it is, but it seems like when I am in the middle of doing a gazillion things, I come up with a new card idea or design. And I have to make it right then and there, photograph it and stick it in my Etsy shop. So, today, while feverishly packaging up my second order of the day with the intent of making the post office by 5, I came up with a new card. I guess it's just the way I work. (Oh, and yes, I did make the PO by 5...actually 4:30!)

Anyway, here's the result...the outside says "sorry" and the inside reads "I've been a bit crabby lately." Haha...I am way cheesy today...

Largest order to date!

I just completed my largest card order to date, 312 cards for a store (actually there are 4) in Minneapolis called The Bibelot Shops. This is their third order. Whoa! OK, off to package them up and ship 'em out! Then on to the next order...a busy day here at the Pink Bathtub studio!
