We’re on Amazon! and no body noticed

It’s official. We’re now a Handmade Artisan on Amazon. If you’ve been saying to yourself “I sure wish I could buy one of these cards”, well now you can. Jump on over to our store on Amazon for all the latest cards.

UPDATE:
It’s April 18, 2018. A year and 2 months in and the Amazon Handmade Marketplace is a crash and burn failure. I think we’ve sold a couple dozen cards. Selling fees have gone up to 20% and it costs $2.66 to ship out a card. Our ranking in the Handmade stationary/card section is somewhere around 246,430 or maybe it was 632,599. It doesn’t matter, there are so many crappy printed card vendors flooding the space it is impossible for quality card crafters to make any impact.

So with that said, we are building our own eCommerce site right here on top of our seldom used blog. This experiment will last a year. The plan is to market a limited number of quality, general use cards at reasonable prices.

Thanks

New Workbench

New tables

Santa was very kind to me this year and upgraded my magic workshop from folding tables to some nice sturdy, clean efficient work desks and tables. I’m so lucky to have Santa living with me. 🙂

He apparently likes to shop at IKEA too.

Stay tuned, my next post will be loaded with the new cards I’ve been working on.

New Year New Design

2017 looks like it will be a great year. I’m feeling good and getting motivated making bunches of new cards. Back in October I was able to help crew the 2016 Atlanta 2 Day Walk for Breast Cancer and my husband Larry walked it. This year we will both do it again. It’s a great organization and an amazing experience. Read about my husband’s experience here.

This year I am focused on box sets of the most popular card types. Thank Yous, Friendship, Christmas and maybe a few Valentines. I’ll also be making plenty of Birthday Cards, Thanksgiving and my favorite, Halloween.

Looking for a custom card? Drop me a note here on the contact page.

For all of 2017, all box sets sold directly will benefit the Atlanta 2 Day Walk for Breast Cancer and our team, Save the Peaches. We will donate 1/2 of the sale price to the team for every set sold. A special order page will be setup shortly. This donation applies to direct sales of box set cards only. Any sales through third party sellers are not part of this special offer.

Back at the Workbench

WOW!! I can’t believe how good I feel. On Thursday I had an RF nerve burn done on all 8 lumbar medial branch nerves. I expected to feel like crap and be in agony from the procedure pain based on my past experience with another pain doctor but this is amazing so far.

I know it will hurt eventually. Doctor Wada at the North Fulton Pain & Spine Center warned me what could happen. I know what to expect this time and that makes it a lot less scary.  IMG_1028919I’ll show you a picture of the pin cushion in my lower back. If you want to see it click the tiny pic but be warned it’s a picture of needle holes, in my back. 🙂  This along with my Ketemine infusion just a couple of weeks ago I’m really hopeful to have a reduced pain November and December this year.

Enough about pain, lets look at what’s on the workbench. Today I’m punching out poinsettia flowers like crazy with my new punch from Stampin’ Up. I’m using some super fun glitter paper and they are turning out great!

Flower Making

These are going to look so good. I can’t wait to get these on a card.

I hope to see lots of friends and neighbors this Saturday. Tell all your friends and bring the whole family.

That’s the end of the blatant plug for the craft fair. 🙂 On a personal note I just had a lower back procedure today so I’m either going to be feeling great Saturday or I’ll be doubled over in pain. I’m hoping for the feeling great part. I’ll know better tomorrow morning when the pain pills wear off.

More from the Workbench

Busy week ahead and no rest for this card making queen!  I’m getting some last minute cards made for the Cumming First Baptist Church Fall Festival and Craft Fair this Saturday. I’m putting together a few Christmas Cards with my new “Reason for the Season” Stamp set from Stampin Up. The Poinsettia punch makes the flower making super easy.

Reason for the Season

Congrats and Thanks

What’s on the Workbench This Week

It was a pretty busy week. I got out and about but is wasn’t all fun and games. My little baby Dixie had to go to the vet for some minor surgery. She developed some bumps on her chest, I panicked and the Vet said they should be removed. Our Vet, Dr Esbeck from the Sawnee Animal Clinic is super good and has taken care of all my babies for the last 10 years or more. Dixie is doing great. She is tolerating the stitches and has not needed the cone of shame.

My infusion therapy was awesome! The Doctors cranked the dose up and I feel great this week.

The awesome box of punches below got delivered Tuesday. I guess I ordered them while I was a little bit foggy after my infusion because I sure don’t remember it. But heck who doesn’t like a box of EK punches!! This takes care of all the square one’s I’ve been jonesing for.
