Cards for a Cause

The time has come and Valentine’s Day is around the corner.  I typically dread Valentine’s Day… Not in the “I’m single and a tragic spinster” kind of way, but really more for the overload of bad chocolate and the misuse of pink, Pink, PINK EVERYWHERE! I’m always surrounded by loved ones and have so many dear friends to love.  This year is a little different though…

A few weeks ago, Lindsey (I feel as if she needs no introduction at this point) shared a link on my Facebook timeline that Brit & Co. was teaming up with DoSomething to help Meals on Wheals get handmade cards to folks all over the country for Valentine’s Day.

I will be donating the following cards to Meals on Wheels this week!

YOU CAN HELP TOO!

I have updated my ETSY shop with the following cards that I have created over the last few weeks.  For every card that is sold, I will donate $1 to Meals on Wheels!

You can give the cutest cards to your friends, family, and loved ones and know that it’s going to a couple of good causes: Meals on Wheels as well as supporting local artists.

Craft Fair Recap

 

IMG_1480The dust has settled and I am slowly cleaning up my apartment from the mania of 12 Days of Crafting and prepping and so on.  I’m not going to lie, I had nightmares the entire week before that I wouldn’t be able to sell a single item or that no one would like anything. I am relieved and so very thankful to say that my first craft fair was a success.  I am very much looking forward to participating in many more, that is right after I restock my inventory!

I did much better than I anticipated.  There is a glimmer of hope that I could quite possibly continue to do what I do… and, wait for it, make a living off of doing what I love doing the most: making.

Here are some pictures from my table.  I hope you enjoy!  I have some items left, so if you are looking for Christmas gifts, search no further!  Feel free to contact me!

12 Days of Crafting: Day 11

Day 11: Not Quite Hallmark

I am nerdy excited about these little cards.  Most, if not all of my friends are foodies of sorts.  In fact, when I used to work at Johnson’s Backyard Garden some of us would try to come up with cute veggie sayings and jokes.  I have been wanting to make cute little cards like these for a long time.

I find that most Hallmark cards are too cheesy and some locally made cards are just a tad too snarky.  I am not too particularly concerned if anybody even buys these at the Bluebonnet Bazaar this coming Saturday, because to be honest, I will use them all!

Anyway, the images are prints or watercolors/drawings that I have done. I hope you like!
