abc - working on children's stationery

I really wanted to work on something new for my shop this weekend and I thought children's stationery would be a great place to start. I hand stamped and heat embossed "abc" in pink & green, and then blue & green, on 8 flat note cards and envelopes. I think note cards for kids is a great way to encourage writing and correspondence. These cards are perfect for thank you notes to relatives and friends, as well as just for keeping in touch.

In addition to children's stationery, I think these abc-themed note cards are ideal for baby shower thank you notes and teacher gifts!

Be sure to check them out in my Etsy Shop!

"Clutch" aka "Studio Dog"

Clutch is an extremely sweet and gentle brindle boxer, who loves to be cuddled up next to anyone willing to have him. Whenever I'm working on products for my Etsy shop, Clutch is close at hand. He can usually be found right at my feet, snoring away. He's the perfect company! Here he is getting a little bit crazy...I barely had time to grab my camera, and take these shots.

Blooms in Rosebud

The holidays are practically here, and everywhere I look it's red & green, silver & blue, or hues of gold. Today, I thought I'd work outside the traditional holiday colors. Simple hand-stamped rosettes in a shade called "rosebud". Why not think pink this holiday season?
