personalized gift labels

My new 2" x 2" stickers arrived yesterday, and I was so excited to post some personalized gift labels in my shop that I spent pretty much the entire day printing sample stickers, gift wrapping whatever I could find around the house, taking pictures, editing them, and then creating the new listings (kids, kids sledding and family).
I'm really happy with how the photographs turned out. I keep learning new tricks in Photoshop that make me want to go back and re-take all of my other product photos, but I think that's going to have to wait a while.

gift sets

One of my favorite artists, Sarah Jane, posted some absolutely gorgeous photographs of her new stationery sets on her blog this morning, and it reminded me of one my favorite suggestions offered as a Bloggy Giveaway entry last week... a new mom gift set.

So I scrambled to put a few sets together and photograph them while both of my kids were at school this morning (and before it started to rain!) It started raining just as I was taking everything back into the house, and I had about 2 minutes to spare before I had to pick up my son from school, but this afternoon I was able to post some new gift sets in my shop.
It's so time consuming to create, photograph, and post new items, but in a life filled with never ending dishes, laundry, vacuuming, errands, etc. I absolutely love the sense of accomplishment it gives me!

2009 desk calendar

I'm so excited to finally have a calendar posted in my shop! I think this would be a cute gift for a teacher or daycare provider, and I'm especially happy that it's another non-customizable item... I have so few of those!
A BIG thank you goes to Stacy from Inkspot Worshop... not only was her desk calendar my original inspriation, but she also helped me tremendously by encouraging me to create one of my own and sharing where she bought her materials. Thank you, Stacy!!!

mommy calling cards

I'm finally offering mommy calling cards! I've been asked for these occasionally over the past year, and I seem to be getting more and more requests for them lately, so I went ahead and created some. I'll probably add more styles over time, but for now I've posted some basic ones in my shop to see how they do.
