It ain’t Hallmark


Guess what?!? I have a corner! Look:

The photo is very carefully taken so as to not show any of the rest of the area, which is still a complete disaster, and likely to remain so for a bit longer. HOWEVER, I have a clear space that I can actually do something in! Isn’t it too thrilling? If progress keeps up I will (hopefully) run out of reasons to not get anything done.

There is still some difficulty in accessing all of my various art supplies (why the photo of my corner was carefully cropped), though hopefully that step will be accomplished soon. Therefore, to celebrate this major construction milestone I decided to start with something “simple” that only involved my computer. I designed a small line of greeting cards.

I love sending mail. I can not be convinced that the US Postal Service isn’t magic. However, while I have a range of cards I created myself, I found myself without options that seemed to fit my current circumstances. So, I went shopping.

While looking through the card section at the store I realized that while they are full of creativity and sentiment, none of them were any better suited to what I wanted than my own cards were. So what choice did I have but to create more cards?

I really liked my little cartoon elephant that I did in March, being silly and simple and happy.

So I decided to continue on that theme (sort of):

Now I have six new cards inspired by my friends, and their posts on social media. More are likely to follow. 😉
