Here are some photos from the Bazaar-On-Hudson. My friend Aileen never forgets to take pictures – I’ll have to remember to take some good ones next time as well. (She’s in the 3rd photo with me – Thanks Aileen!) Thank you to everyone who came out and […]
I’ll be participating in the Bazaar on Hudson market on Sunday.. and many Sundays after that. Hopefully they’ll be some nice weather and some new cards you’ve never seen before! I finished the Hudson Valley cards and prints (above) just in time for the market. See them in person on Sunday!
You may have noticed a new logo popping up.. I’m excited to announce a slight “refreshing” of my logo! I created my first cynla logo when I started my business and drew the first greeting cards. I remember thinking it was hard to create a logo […]
Since I’m now waiting for the snow to melt and the flowers to bloom.. I’m putting up spring cards. Garden gate thank you cards are now available in the shop. I really love how these ones turned out. Hope you like them!
I created 31 ink drawings! It was a great challenge to complete in a month (ok, a month and a half). They are all up on display at the Art Riot in Kingston, NY for the Fun A Day exhibit. They’ll be there until March 1st. In the […]
If you’re snowed in on Valentine’s Day like I am, I hope you are making the most of it. Cooking a feast, spending time with your loved ones, doing some cuddling in this snowy weather..
And shopping for cards – some love for my followers: use code vdayLoveSnow for 20% off my […]
New card up in my etsy shop! There will be dancing.
I LOVE to dance.. and if I wasn’t a graphic designer, I’d probably be a backup dancer. Another lifetime.
[ There Will Be Dancing Card ]
was the snowman party card! It’s also one of my best-selling holiday cards this year overall.. second to the NYC holiday card.
Second best-seller at the holiday fair was my fireflies card.. which is funny because these are the 2 cards I put in […]
They’re here! Now you can quit some things.. because I have cards for that. I think quitting something makes huge amounts of space in your life for other things. That thing you want to quit probably comes with a lot of emotional weight, possibly taxing stress to your body and may be […]
You can catch me at one more holiday fair for the season – December 7 (this Saturday) – the Hudson Valley Hullabaloo!
I’ll be there with holiday cards, gift tags, and PLENTY of greeting cards for all of your card-sending needs in 2014. Seriously.. put it on […]
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 […]
The sight of this leaning tower of boxes makes me happy…
It was a great weekend over here. Spent some quality time with friends and their sweet baby, including a friend who crazily biked to Beacon from Brooklyn!, had great brunch, homemade pizza, made a fire (s’mores!), went on […]
These are the favorites from the Pumpkin Festival on Sunday!
Ever since I started offering 6 for $20, I’ve been noticing people picking the same group of cards. They choose a Storybook one, a Starry animal, a Cloudy one and then some birthday or love ones. The […]
I’m doing another street fair in Suffern, NY this weekend! If you’re in the area, please stop by.
Sunday, Suffern, NY, 10-5.
Above are some photos of my booth. I learned a lot from the first fair last weekend: how to prep, what to bring, what customers […]
Just packed up the car for SeptemberFest! Bringing a lot of cards, including this new fireflies one that was printed just in time.
See you tomorrow, rain or hopefully shine!
