There are so. many. things. happening today in the world. My shop opens today! I even designed a new piece to my logo just for my shop, look at how pretty it is!
So, you can head on over to my shop and browse around. There are some unique individual cards, some card sets, a bunch of postcards, and an upcoming calendar which I’ve started working on already. I’m incredibly excited to share some of my handmade goodies with all of you, and I hope that you like what you see.
Today also starts day #1 of 31 days of writing. I will be blogging each one of the 31 days in October and the topic I’ve chosen fallen under the category of personal endeavor. For the month of October I will send out a greeting card to a friend every day to celebrate something. Anything really. Just a message to let them know that I’m thinking about them. I will be making duplicates of every card and come November 1 they will all be available in the shop. See how we came full circle there?
In case you’re new here (hello!), you may not know that from the time I was in high school, whenever anybody asked me what I wanted to do when I grow up, the answer was always – I want to own a greeting card shop. Then I went to college for architectural engineering, and somehow the answer at the end of the day was still – I want to own a greeting card shop. Now here I am, 3 years later (that makes me 25 if you’re trying to do the math) – and today I can finally say – I own a greeting card shop.
I also want to let you know when I first started developing this dream it was going to be a greeting card shoppe. That’s right s – h – o – p – p – e, but somewhere along the way I realized that sounded far to prissy for a girl who would live in jeans and oversized earrings all the time if it weren’t for her corporate day job. Anyway.
In honor of my shop kicking off I decided that instead of making a greeting card on the first day I would send out the postcards that I created last month. Yes, I understand this sounds a little bit like cheating, but just to clear your head of that thought I sent out FIVE postcards instead of one, just to get my point across. And the best part? These postcards are all available in my shop today if you’d like to send some as well. Here’s what they look like:
What other words do you think I could put on a postcard?
Thanks again to everyone who’s stopping by. And absolutely feel free to make some requests about what kind of out-of-the-ordinary milestones in life I can celebrate as I’m making cards this month. Maybe you finally cleaned out your garage, or it’s the first time you landed that jump on your skateboard, or you somehow made it down the stairs without tripping today. Let me know what ordinary occassions you like to celebrate in your own life and maybe I can find a way to make a card for them.
Today’s WITCH number is 21.
