Personalized - Gold

Gold (edge will be scalloped)
My Christmas card design for this year. It is a boutique card, one sided with a die cut, scalloped edge (you can barely see the edge pattern in this mockup...all of the dark edge will be cut away.) It will be one sided with a hole threaded with ribbon for hanging. It comes with envelopes and orders of 25 or more can be personalized(example below.) There will also be a discount for orders of 15 or more of the same variation (color). It is going to the printers today for my preview sample and should be available in my Etsy store by the end of the week.

All of the music on this video was written and performed by my very talented friend, Nori Bucci, and is used with her permission. Besides being an award winning musician and composer, Nori is also an amazing artist who works in graphite to create incredibly delicate and beautiful art.

All of the photographs and art work on the video are my own.

Danny Boy~One Year Ago

Traveler's Sensational Flyby or as we will always call him, Danny, was born May 1, 2010. A year later and he's taller than his mother but this video was filmed and the still shots taken on the day he arrived. He's just a few hours old here and I don't think Mousie can believe that he's truly hers. She looks at him with so much adoration and love that it still breaks my heart a little to watch this but it also makes that same heart sore with joy. It attests to how much I love these two horses that I'm willing to allow the world to hear my silly giggles but they were sincere and heartfelt giggles brought on by our fascination with this beautiful gift that Mouse had just given us. I said on that day, "Five years ago, when I first met her, I gave her my heart and today, she's returned the favor."

Randy's Birthday

I designed an image for my nephew's birthday party invitations. I was so pleased with the results that I had a 12x16 inch image printed and framed for this horse crazy six year old's room. He was very pleased.
Beautiful new treasury featuring Devotion.
