Hello! Spring is finally starting to show up around here and my general funk and state of constant irritation is beginning to be replaced with hopefulness and effervescence. Well, I won’t over do it…
Needless to say, for those of you tuned in to what New England has been like for the past 8-10 weeks, we should get a prize if we didn’t drink ourselves into a stupor, punch a stranger or lose anything important like keys or a small child in the snow banks. (I am still keeping a keen eye on them as they melt for surprises.)
Though I have been very busy complaining about the weather, I have had some time to get into the studio to make some new stuff for y’all. We will be returning to the National Stationery Show this year after a wee hiatus and will be debuting a bunch of new things including a few new card designs. I will be sneak-peeking them here!
This card has been a long time coming and is about the best of the bests. The friends that become family. The soul-sisters. The family you choose. You get the gist. For me, many of the women who fit this description live far away which is bittersweet and hard at times. I miss them horribly and constantly wish they lived next door (in one gorgeous well-equipped house of course) and the baby monitor signal would reach to their front porch or kitchen counter. Not that I’ve given it any extensive thought…
I made a few pretty terrible time-lapse videos of the creation of the artwork for this card, which makes it look like I work SUPER fast. I don’t. But it’s pretty cool. Also, I am binge-watching The Mindy Project the whole time so that explains most of the long pauses you see.
What do you think? Know the ones?
