Go team!!

I was contacted by someone who saw my stuff posted on Facebook, who gave me the nicest compliment. She said she loved my cards, and was trying to think of an occasion that she could use them for. Her daughter was starting her first day of middle school, and her son was beginning his first year in tackle Football. So she asked me if I could make cards for those two occasions. I was so excited! I love creating things for special events in people's lives.

So I sat down, and this is what I came up with for the little boy. His school colors are purple, black, and white and she wanted 'Good Luck' on there somewhere. I made this football from paper that looks like leather. I then pounded some eyelets in and used some thread as the laces.

It was so fun to do, and I think it turned out great! I hope little Jarod gets a big smile on his face when he gets it from his mom :)

The Local Girl Gallery

Well, good news and bad news. Good news is I just got back from The Local Girl Gallery (http://www.localgirlgallery.com/index.html) in Lakewood, Ohio and she loved my cards and decided to sell them in her Gallery. She's taking a dollar, and I get $3 for every sale. What's good about this gallery is that they support local literacy program, so a part of any sale goes towards that. She also said she would put my info up on the website and some of my cards, so that's cool!

The bad news is she took them all!!! :) Bad news because I'm totally out of cards now and have to hurry up to make more to put in my online shops.

I'm kind of in a bind because I went out on a limb and signed up to do something for the first time at Etsy Greetings Team on their blog. They picked me to do the Featured Sale next week and now I'm out of cards!! Of course, this is a good problem to have :)

So I better get on it and get busy creating some more.
