Day 2: What does Just A Card mean to me?

The sale of even just one card means a lot: it makes me feel that my work is appreciated, that the effort that’s gone into my work has been worth it, and (because often people don’t think of the obvious) it helps keep a roof over my head.  Every sale makes me smile for all of those reasons, and also because I really like the idea that my work might be making someone else smile!  One of the things I enjoy most about my job is customer feedback: I’ve had lovely messages from people in the past, telling me how much they (or the person they’ve bought something for) have enjoyed writing in one of my notebooks, or that seeing one of my paintings on their wall always cheers them up.  I love, also, the stories behind some of the commissions I’ve been asked to do.  One of my handcrafted boxes was even used as part of a wedding proposal (it was a Harry Potter inspired proposal, and I cannot tell you how chuffed I was to be asked to help out with that)!  Some of the stories I hear are happy, some are poignant, and all of them are special.  Buy just a card, just a notebook, just a painting and you’re enriching my life, and I hope that my work helps to enrich yours too.

Ok, this isn’t really a proper part 2 (which I said I would write in January but never did get around to).  Part 1 is here if you missed it.  What this is, is a quick heads up that the first batch of eco-printed books are now available in my Etsy shop.  I added nine last night and one has been snapped up already so go and take a peek as each one is unique.

…so here are some books that feature (reproduction postcards of) vintage advertisements.  My favourite is hands down (no pun intended) the gloves that come with a cigarette pocket.  One of my biggest bugbears is that women’s clothing rarely comes with useful pockets.  Usually the pockets on our clothes are too small to be of use or, worse, they’re FAKE pockets just added as a design feature.  Seriously, WTF?  We need pockets.  We need FUNCTIONAL pockets.  I have a whole rant on this subject but I’ll just leave you for now with what would probably be my slogan if I went campaigning: Pockets Against the Patriarchy!

If you’d like to purchase any of these books then click here to visit my Etsy shop.

I’ve got a limited number of boxes that are stuffed with stationery at a bargain price.  Each box contains a mixture of old and new stock, and the contents of each box is different so you’ll have to refer to the individual listings for details.  Click here to visit my Etsy shop (they’re in the Reduced to Clear section).

Way back in the mists of time* I shared some work in progress photos of my Tunnock’s Teacake project.  I did actually get round to making some notecards, and I was even organised enough to put them in my Etsy shop.  What I didn’t manage to do was to mention that on here.  How, I ask myself, am I supposed to sell things if I never remember to advertise?

So here they are, looking scrumptious.  Go, buy some cards!
