So I have been awake all day/night today. It currently is roughly 11am here in PA and I have been up since noon yesterday. (whow!) I made the mistake of having a caffeinated beverage around 8pm last night at dinner, and me being on a healthier kick have basically given up caffeine, so when I do drink it, I get allllllll hyped. Anyways, cranked out 4 Mother's Day cards for a co-worker and one audition card for a design team on a fellow blogger's new digital sentiments company. But I will just show you the Mother's Day cards today, since this blog will be way too long anyways and I think I might finally crash after I post. Read the bottom of my post for the story behind why none of these cards have any words on them. *sigh*
Ok, so the story goes: about a day after I made my Etsy site, a co-worker of mine was surfing the net and came across Etsy. I happened to glance over at the right time and quickly mentioned I just opened my own store for my creations. She checked out my store then immediately requests that I make her some Mother's Day cards for her mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt. However, since most of them do not speak English, she wanted to know if I could make them with no sayings or if I had to make sayings, she would specify what it was to say. So instead of having her go into the trouble of writing out things that I could say on the card and to avoid the possibility I would spell words wrong, etc. I let her know that I would do my best to create cards with no words on them. Ok, DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD THAT IS!!!!??? Me, being the chipboard lover and sentiment-holic I am, was soooo challenged. Since there were to be Mother's Day cards and not like one of your other important holidays, I have very little to work with. Um, flowers, butterflies, stuff like that? Also, I was to not use glitter or markers on them. Another blow to my comfort zone. But I got through them, and half I like, the other half I only sorta like. So above are the fab four! Enjoy!
