teacher gift sets

Saturday night I realized that I hadn't bought gifts yet for Jack's Sunday school teachers, and the next day was the closing program for the year. So I printed some personalized note cards for them, and then after Sunday school it occurred to me that I'm probably not the only one trying to figure out what to buy for teacher gifts this time of year!

So this morning I created a couple of inexpensive Teacher Gift Sets ($7.50 for 8 cards with a name or initial) and posted them in my shop.

In other Sarah & Abraham news... I've updated the listings for my postcard sets so they no longer include stickers, and I reduced the price to $7.50 for a set of 8.

Also, I've finally posted all of the rest of the 5x7 and 8x8 prayer & scripture prints that I have in stock in the SALE section of my shop (25% off since they're already printed & can't be personalized).

And I'm happy to report that I'm finally caught up on all of those orders that came in on Thursday while I was out having fun with the kids! I hate to get behind, and it feels so good to be caught up again!

more great ideas from customers

I've been getting a lot of requests lately for variations to my Hello Spring and Hello Bird prints, so at first I created something called Hello Butterflies with these two girls, but then I decided to just add a listing for another type of personalized print where you can choose any silhouette(s) and add names if you'd like. I've sold a couple of these already, and I really like how they've been turning out!
I also had a request today for a little boy holding a balloon, which I was happy to create... I have a feeling this little guy will become a popular silhouette for birthday party invitations and favor tags (now I just need to update all of my listings to show him as an option). I know I probably sound like a broken record, but I just love all the great ideas I get from Etsy shoppers!

note card + sticker sets

For a while now I've been wanting to add some note card and sticker sets to my Etsy shop, and today I finally had some time to get them photographed and posted.
I just love when people order matching stickers for their envelopes, and whenever friends order note cards I usually try to throw in some matching stickers.My pictures didn't turn out great, so I may have to retake some of them on a sunnier day, but for now I'm just glad to have them in my shop and to finally be able to cross something off my to-do list!

If you're ever in Toronto...

...check out Honeybunch Homestore for Kids where some of my products are now stocked!

I mentioned very briefly in an earlier post that I'd worked with Nicole from Honeybunch to design some fill-in invitations for her online store as well as the brick and mortar store that she recently opened in Toronto. It was so exciting for me because I just love the collection of products she's assembled and what she stands for.

Even though I knew it was coming, it was still a huge treat for me today to see this when I went to her website:
And it makes me so happy to think of my products on display in her lovely new shop with these other delightful party supplies:
