getting ready for Valentine's Day!

Valentine card deck

parking cards

So I was thinking of things to make for my shop since Christmas is over...the next commercial holiday is Valentine's Day! I love all the pinks, reds, and hearts and all-over fuzzy feeling I get when that time of year comes :) I remember working on a Valentine theme card deck months ago, and printed them out today - brought many smiles to me today :) Along with the cards, I also made parking cards - something you write on when you want to tell some ungrateful human being to not block the driveway OR for just being an idiot! They're for fun but most importantly for sending out a message without being abrasive :o)

lasting love

Today marks my parents 35th wedding anniversary - can you imagine being with one person that long? and with four kids? They really encompass everything about a loving couple - through thick and thin, they were there for each other. I can't help but smile thinking about how lucky I am to call them my parents :)

paper goods at Cherish

love theme card deck

The other day, I met Lani from the stationary store Cherish on 115 Clement to show her my paper goods and she loved them! Soon you will find them somewhere in the shop - I'll have to visit soon to take pictures :) What made the visit even better was meeting Tomoko Maruyama, who is such a talented and gifted graphic designer!

robot craze

Last week I brought some robots and tea towels to a store in Hayes Valley called MarketSF, which is a pop-up shop here for the holidays! Three robots have sold already as well as a bunch of tea towels! The robots have been popular for Christmas gifts as well as to decorate nurseries :) You can find the robot plushes at MarketSF (560 Hayes @ Laguna) as well as my etsy shop!

time to decorate

I can't believe it's already December - that means Christmas is coming up! After thinking of ways to spruce up the house, I came up with the idea to make Christmas tree ornaments. This will be the first time my fiance and I will have a tree so that inspired me to make them and add them to my shop! Also new to the shop is this Popsicle Tree tea towel - it's by far the most joy for me to make because of the fun colors and design :)
