Positive Change

There have been a lot of changes around here with the New Year. I have been reflecting on my business plan and making changes in the areas where I want the business to grow the most. One thing that will never change is my commitment to using unique images.

I was looking through my cards and I noticed that some of the original ones could use a makeover. I have a number of cards that feature my flower illustrations. These were the perfect cards to spruce up a bit. Rather than just have a print of my illustrations I wanted to design with them and create some unique compositions.

Here are the before and after photos of some of the cards. Let me know what you think of the changes by commenting below.

Spring Fling

On Saturday, JLiB kicked off the new season of craft shows at MMS's Spring Fling. This show was a rain check event for the Valentine's Day show which had almost a foot of snow fall on the weekend of the event. Each year MMS hosts two shows, one near Valentine's Day and one near Halloween. I love going to these shows because the group of vendors are great, the coordinator is awesome and I do well at them!

My table display! My sign is made of individual parts so it can be hung different for every show.

Some close up shots. The card display on the right is made from an empty drawing pad. Its light weight and  the colored background is easy to swap out for different occasions.
