Ink Lemonade has a cute post 6 gifts you can send in an envelope. I love this image she created and you can read her list here. Her suggestions are for 1) a birthday garland, 2) $5 cupcake or favorite shop giftcard, 3) scratch ticket, 4) mini confetti bag, 5) mini moleskine […]
Here are some gobbling turkeys we ran across in Peru:: TurkeyGobble. A week before Thanksgiving, so I’ll just pretend these turkeys have happy homes now.
Enjoy! If the preview doesn’t work, here’s the link.
It doesn’t really sound like “gobble gobble” to me. Here’s a list I found of what […]
Everyone deserves a day off.. including reindeer. Don’t you think?
However, a friend posted that santa should be saying something more along the lines of – will you pull my sleigh tonight. What do you think? Maybe I’m just projecting my desire of a vacation onto this dreamy reindeer. A possible inside message […]
Happy Anniversary to my amazing husband of one year and counting!
July 2, 2011
This is a hand-lettering design I made for him – since he’s in Utah right now and I can’t see him, I spent Sunday making this. I think I do my best work […]
Just bought the last of the Year of the Dragon Stamps at Grand Central – sorry! It’s such a pretty design and I tried to buy them at the beginning of the year and they were sold out. But now that I located a picture of it, I found out […]
Mother’s day is almost here! Check out our new Mother’s day cards. Order before Friday to definitely get them by Mother’s day (May 13th!)
For full messages, see descriptions in our Cynla etsy shop. All three cards are available to give to all the moms you know.
This card is inspired by my mom.. who asks me on the phone when am I coming home? and then when I’m visiting, asks when I’m going to see her next. I wonder how often I would have to visit for it to be enough? Any moms know? Probably if I moved back […]
This is a card I made for a friend’s dental practice. I never thought I’d be making dental cards, but it was a lot of fun to make!
Front: Wishing you a SWEET holiday season
(but don’t forget to floss for goodness sake)
I do have a huge sweet tooth, so […]
In a world of cards, I have to design at least half a year ahead. Stores expect to be looking at Christmas lines in August. I haven’t quite made it to this schedule yet, but I feel way ahead of Mother’s Day, May 13th – two whole months ahead. This card will be […]
THANK YOU spring is almost here. The nice weather today feels great after coming back from a vacation and missing the sun. Here’s a Happy Spring Thank You card I’ve been working on.
Also, if you haven’t seen these already, I only have a couple left and there’s still time to get these before […]
New Valentine’s Day cards are almost here!
This is the first holiday I’m really prepared for in my business and I’m proud to offer EIGHT new designs this year!
I have patterns and hand lettered designs. My “tons” card is already a hot-seller. I like colors that aren’t really associated with […]
Happy holidays! Here’s the snow man card we sent out this year. My husband really loves snow (I know), but I sometimes like some light, pretty snow. It makes it feel like Christmas.. no snow this year yet. The inside of this card reads: Wishing you love, happiness and some pretty snow.
