Snow Day/New Stationery

Friday, January 29, 2010

Such a delightful thing happened this morning. The weathermen predicted a "heavy winter storm" of snow/ice/sleet and it actually has come to pass. So much has come down from the sky, in fact, that I got sent home from work. I have been working in the grown-up/adult world for almost four years, and this has never happened for me before. A wonderful surprise indeed, as I did not expect to be sent home early at all. But here we are. (And I won't turn them down.)

[on my way home to hibernate, I stopped to get a space heater--our townhouse doesn't get above 62, really--and bought myself a SNUGGIE! eeeee! i love it! wearing(?)/using it this very second!]

I haven't posted about paper stuff in a while. As mentioned before Christmas, I did take a break from etsy over the holidays. It was a good break, but a few projects have popped up recently, and I'm glad to be getting back in the swing.

Thought I'd show you a few new little cards. These are similar to each other: flat, vertical cards. And, I will warn you, my photographs are awful. Sorry. It's extremely difficult to take good photos of these things.

Made these for my mom because she wanted some "fun" cards...cream paper/envelopes with lime-y green ink:


This little font below is one of my current favorites: "Perfect Magic"...isn't it cute? (sorry it's blurry) These are a green/grey combo on cream paper with the return address printed sideways on the front of the envelope:


Here's a set for my friend Carrie's soon-to-be new baby, Presley. This was one of the Bunko prizes from Bunko at Sister's house last week. (The printing is hot pink on white paper/envelopes and the border kind of like sewing-ish dashes. Sorry it's hard to see.)


[isn't Presley Portis such a stunner of a name?]

The last two are some hostess gifts for my friend Bethany (who's about to have a little guy of her own!). The following set is a style that I made a LOT for Christmas orders (remember the Great Card Knock-Out '09? yeah, me neither.). Pretty classic, no? Cream paper/envelopes, brown ink:


And this guy...everyone loves Honey Script. Cream paper/envelopes, brown ink again:



I haven't listed these on etsy yet, because these pictures stink. But if you want any of them or anything, they're the same prices as my other sets--just email if you're interested.

Here's Red looking out the window at the snow:


...but now he's safely settled in one of his favorite spots:


I'll now hunker down with some correspondence, to distract from the desire to bake something.

C'est tout! Have a happy Friday/Snow Day or otherwise, wherever you are!

  3. I heart my snuggie. Too bad it never gets cold here. Although, iPhone says it "feels like" 34 here right now.

  4. Leslie,

    So glad you got a "snow day!" I just wish we would have a had just a tad more snow instead of ice to go play in!

    I LOVE Presley's stationery! Just perfect! And, thanks for the sweet comment on her name. We love it, but it's so fun to hear that others like it too.
