Saint Patrick's Day Invitations

It's almost time for the wearing of the green and I found this blog post over at "The Finer Things" (see link under My Blog List) using one of my St. Patrick's day designs. What cute inspiration for a baby shower. I just love the little shoes!

Finer Things

It thrills me to no end to see cards that I've created out in the world. This week, Finer Things used one of our holiday digital photo cards to announce their sale.

We are now deep in the trenches of holiday sales. A few more weeks of crazy and then it's back to design.

It amazes me when I come back to this blog and realize that it's been almost a year since I've posted anything. I am going to try to put stuff up more often.

We have been working on Halloween invitations lately and have just released them to the internet vendors. Here are a couple of samples.

My co-designer, Laura, painted the elegantly spooky one based on her view of the catacombs of Paris. It's one of my new favs!

I've also gone "girly" with our invitations. I have been working on all kinds of girls - graduation, holiday and Halloween. Each of our "girl" invites is available as a blonde, brunette, redhead or African-American. Some of them are also offered with an Asian option.

Each of our Halloween invitations also has a coordinating response card and 2.5 inch square label. Hope you enjoy!

Our Holiday Catalog

Wow! Here is our brand new, hot off the press, Holiday Catalog. I discovered Issuu a while back but didn't realize how useful it could be. I will be posting lots of our catalogs for you in the future. But for now, enjoy this one. These items are specifically blank stock holiday cards. The digitals will come later . . . if I go work on them now!

To look inside, just click right on the cover and it will open up full screen.

Independence Day in my family means heading to the mountains of North Carolina for a family get together at my Aunt 'Nette and Uncle Davy's home. They have a home on a golf course and we all drag chairs out onto the tee box and watch the fireworks that night. This photo is one of my favorite family photos. My grandmother (in the center with the light blue shirt) and my father (on the right with a red shirt) both recently passed away so this photo is especially dear to me even if I no longer look anything like I do in this photo (I'm the one on the front row with the short brown hair).

July 4th Invitations

My blogging career has been sporadic at best. I get so busy at work that I forget to blog and my life at home has been a roller coaster ride for the last 6 months. I am, once again, trying to get back to blogging. It always helps when I have new products that I am excited about.

We have just released a new group of invitations for the summer so I have started with a July 4th patriotic themed inspiration board for your enjoyment. The beautiful children in the hammock are my nephew, Will and my daughter Aubrey from Independence Day 2004. My how they grow so quickly!
The invitation, called "Fireworks at Night" can be purchased from Invitation Box, by clicking here.

Okay, so I finally got around to looking at my blog again. How, I wonder, did I manage to not blog for FOUR MONTHS! I can tell you how - we got really busy at work and when the work really pours in, the designers become production workers. I got the sweetest compliment over the holidays when one of our vendors told me I was perfect at producing, proofing, correcting and sending out proofs to the vendors. However, I am only perfect at that job for the short-term. If I had to do it permanently, I would run screaming from the building. But I did enjoy the interaction with our vendors some of whom I looked forward to our frequent emails even if it was no more than "Proof approved. Have a great day." or "Keep Smiling." The holidays are incredibly busy for stationery vendors as well as manufacturers and it was so nice when everyone kept a sane head and we just kept moving forward, even when UPS couldn't deliver the package due to snow or when the customer was upset that their cards didn't arrive in 4 days. So here's a quick shout out to those I can think of . . . Marci at Truly Noteworthy, Sonji at Fine Stationery, L Taylor in South Carolina, and Lisa at Charming Cards. They all kept me busy and were always pleasant to work with.

So now I have to do a major mental shifting of gears. For the past few months, it's been WORK, WORK, WORK. Now I have moved to the CREATE, CREATE, CREATE time of the year. I love design and I feel truly blessed to have the job that I have. Designing stationery is the perfect job for me. But the shift from production to creation takes a few days. I am thankful for a few days off at the holidays and I am looking forward to going back to work in the New Year, primed and ready to start creating new invitations.

So there really isn't anything to show today but as we start getting things on the board, I will start sharing our new stuff with you.

Happy New Year ya'll!
