I’m participating in Fun-A-Day Hudson Valley. You pick a project, do it every day in January, then show your work in a big group show. Like their facebook page here.. they need lots of likes!
I have been meaning to do “100 drawings” of something, or 100 blog posts about another […]

It’s small business Saturday! Shop handmade & shop small. Here’s one place I know of: www.cynla.etsy.com.
But seriously, shopping small keeps the money in your communities, promotes small business entrepreneurs, and prevents big names, who will rename nameless, from taking over every street corner and […]

Spent some restocking time with Kristy today at her store Clay, Wood & Cotton. It’s such a proud moment to see my cards on the racks — and especially nice to see her run out of them! New Rings (bottom right) sold […]

Doesn’t iced coffee just get your attention? It’s very effective with me!
Anyways, I’m designing a window display! I’m participating in the annual Windows on Main exhibit along main street in Beacon, NY. This year’s theme is the Past, Present and Future of Beacon – relating […]
I sat down to write a quick post and realized this is my 100th post! A cause for celebrating..
Some successes I’m celebrating:
— I quit my full-time job to pursue my dream career as a designer– I recently hit 100 sales in my etsy store
— I did […]
We’re moving! again.. Only a short trip across town. However, I’m staring at all of this great inventory I have.. I finally have become organized and stocked full of cards.. and I would prefer if all of these boxes were just a little lighter. So..
I’m having a sale! Help me move.
I’d appreciate […]
Yay! I hit 100 sales on etsy! I can’t believe it. It’ll be all gorgeously uphill from here.
Or smooth sailing after this.. or insert your own metaphor.
Also, I’m almost 2 years in business!
AND my 2nd year wedding anniversary is today (Tuesday)!
Lots of reasons to […]
Just wanted to share the stamps I’ve designed for my mailings.
Please Do Not Bend Elephant is the newest one. Not to mention any names, but I would see people at the post office(s) bending my envelopes to see if they were bendable. The cards I mail out are technically “bendable,” but […]
I’m back from the National Stationery Show – physically and mentally (I think). It was a whirlwind of meeting new people, taking in all the excitement, being inspired by all the artists, and paper, paper, paper!
Since then, I’ve been busy scoring and folding cards for orders (see […]
Just wanted to post a couple quick photos from my booth on my way to Day 3 at the National Stationery Show. Here is our popular Happily Ever After Storybook card.
And here is a quick snapshot of our booth! It has been my dream to exhibit at the NSS and get the […]
Remember the Cat Card Card? Well, now he has a friend… a bunny playing card greeting card! This one is a 4 of clubs because the bunny is looking for 4-leaf clovers always in his garden of carrots.
I think they go well together. I’m […]
Cynla boxes are here! I’m so excited to show you our new packaging boxes for our boxed notes. They are made of kraft recycled paper and have a big, clear window with a cloudy cutout around my logo. Pretty, huh?
Our boxed notes come with 8 cards and kraft […]
