Guess What's 2014 Holiday Collection for Cardstore

This year, I designed quite a few holiday cards for Cardstore, and I just wanted to share them with you. There's a little bit of everything - some hand-lettering, some illustration - even a floral design, which I don't do much of. You can check these out, along with more of my holiday designs, here, at

Cardstore has such a wonderful + diverse collection of greeting cards, invitations, notecards, and more - for every occasion you can think of. I absolutely love that you can upload your addresses and have Cardstore address, stamp, and mail your cards out for you! They really make the card sending process super simple + convenient! Saves a whole bunch of time, too!! Right now, Cardstore is having a sitewide sale, and you can get 20% off plus FREE SHIPPING until 10/31 with code CCM4241 (enter at checkout). Wouldn't it be great to get your holiday card shopping done early? ;) Easier said than done, I know. I always intend to get it done early, but sometimes my Christmas cards turn into New Year's cards. On a few occasions, they even turned into Christmastine's (Christmas Valentine's). Hey, that could totally be a new category of greeting cards! Uhhhhhm . . . maybe, not.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look! Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think of the designs. Hope you're having a great weekend! Talk to you soon!

The Shop is OPEN

I've been wanting to add an online shop to my site for some time, now, and I finally did it! My shop is finally OPEN! YAAAY! [confetti, streamers, noisemakers] It's a VERY humble looking WIP, but still. . .a shop, nonetheless. Right now, I only have holiday cards, but I hope to add more designs every week, so be sure to check back. I'm working on some baby announcements and personal stationery, and I'll also be adding wedding suites and children's art prints in the not so distant future. If you'd like, you can sign up for blog updates + promotions at the bottom of this post, and I'll let you know when new items are available. And if you have any questions about ordering, please feel free to email me at

Right now, I'm just sitting here in my shop, waiting for a customer. [twiddling thumbs] It's pretty quiet [crickets]. . .oh wait. . .someone walked in. [jingly door-thingy]. . .(me, to customer) "No, sorry sir, we don't have a restroom. Have a nice day!" Okay, where was I? Hmmm. . .maybe I should install a restroom. . .I think we'll wait on that one, for when we expand. Anyway, if you do stop in for a visit, don't be shy, say "hi".  The shop's open 24/7, so drop in anytime! Go ahead and grab a cup of coffee and make yourself at home. Just remember as you're browsing, though. . .you break it, you buy it! ;)

Well, hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for visiting! [jingly door-thingy]  Ooh, I gotta go! Take care, and talk soon!

lori :) 

p.s. Almost forgot to give you directions! Just take a left, from this blog post - out, maybe 4 inches - turn right and drive straight up till you see OUR SHOP. That's me, waving out the window! :)
