Happy Holidays!

"Mail your packages early so the Post Office can lose them by Christmas."
-- Johnny Carson

For those of you who have been reading my blog for years, you know a few things about me:

*  I like tea, hoodies, dogs and Project Runway (the Bravo years)
*  I used to be a reality show writer/producer but then had what can best be described as a "complete mental breakdown brought on by a fit of good taste" and left the industry all together.
*  I really like to paint and create things that delight me and make me say, "Squeeee!"
*  I tend to overuse the word, "Squeeee!"

In the past few years I've tackled painting as aggressively as one can who still needs a day job to pay rent.  (STUPID RENT!)  My latest venture is creating art through the medium of stamping.  (Not postage stamps.  Stampy stamps.)  I admit, I really like it!

If you've been living under a rock, you missed that I am making HANDMADE stamped holiday cards!  You can see the blog here with the descriptions and an order form located at the bottom of the entry.  My LATEST venture was to turn my favorite holiday stamp prints into items available on my CafePress Store!

Perfect for coal!

There are mugs, ornaments, coasters, magnets, stockings (as in Christmas, not as in No Nonsense), baby bibs, baby hoodies, baby hats, aprons and postcards.  Lots of different prints too!

The yellow ones don't stop.
Not even for tea.


A winter wonderland ornament!

A much better option than a fully bunny outfit,
ala Christmas Story.
Baby hat!  One size fits all!
(I bet it would even fit my tiny melon...)

This is just a small sampling - lots of products with different designs!  Please enjoy my Cafe Press Store this Cyber Monday and help keep this artistic biddy artistic.  If I have to go back to reality television, I will blame you.  (I'm not petty....)

UPDATED: Holiday Cards!

I love making many things.  Like making jokes, making cereal, and making noise.  (Not necessarily in that order, however.)  But my favorite thing to make is art, in whatever form it happens to appear in my life.  Mostly, it's been in the form of paintings, but today, it's HOLIDAY CARDS!

Take THAT, Hallmark!
I've been collecting "holiday" stamps along the way this season and have made these holiday card prototypes.  That's right, these babies are for sale!  And in plenty of time for the holidays.  ALL are handmade by me, so each will be unique.  Also all will be dated with the year and signed by me on the back.  

PLEASE NOTE: As these are prototypes, (meaning I made them on my floor just now), they are not perfect.  All purchased cards will not have smudges.  Scout's honor.  (PS - I was kicked out of Girl Scouts.  Just saying...)

UPDATE 11/15/10 - NEW CARD - Seasons Greetings Penguins!

I like penguins.  And so do my readers!
Lots of requests for a penguin card.
The inside is "Seasons Greetings" in red ink.

And here's what a bundled pack of 10 cards looks like - all ready to ship!

I FINALLY have an excuse to buy ribbon.  FINALLY.
And here are the 5 originally posted cards in detail:

NEW YORK CITY - Holiday Card:

EXACTLY what NYC is like during the holidays.
Except the cabs aren't so orderly.
Inside NYC card

EVERGREENS - Holiday card:

I love Evergreens!  Even when it's summer these
trees still say "holidays" to me.

Inside Evergreens holiday card

CHRISTMAS TREE - Christmas card:

Only one present.  It is a recession, you know...

Inside Christmas Tree card

PEACEFUL WOODS - Holiday Card:

The Peace Dove is flying south for the winter.
Inside Peaceful Woods card

REINDEER - Christmas / Holiday Card:

When I was a kid, I got reindeer and moose mixed up.
I'm happy to report that I'm better now.
Inside Reindeer card
Cards are 10 for $20 (plus shipping).  YOU CAN ORDER ANY COMBINATION OF THESE CARDS THAT YOU WANT!  All of just one card?  Sure!  3 of 1, 3 of another and 4 of another?  Yeppers.  

If you buy 10 for $20, your second batch is 10 for $15 
and your third and subsequent orders are 10 for $10!

ALL orders can be placed through this order form (WHICH IS NOW CLOSED).  
(All email address will remain private - no spam here!)

Payments will be made through PayPal.  I will start production on your order only after I receive the money via PayPal.  

I will also entertain special orders - if you'd like to swap "insides" of cards out for another one you see, totes fine.  Just let me know.

THANK YOU in advance for ordering!  If you don't order any, then whatevers.  We're still cool, but you WILL get a holiday lump of coal in your email stocking from a grumpy biddy...
