I am so excited to announce that I am a finalist in the 27th Annual LOUIE Awards! One of my Easter cards (with the cutest little bunny!) is being considered under the Seasonal Celebrations category alongside some incredibly talented artists. The greeting card industry includes so many amazing people that it’s a special honor to be a part of this year’s finalists.
We are so excited to see two of my new growth charts available exclusively at The Land of Nod! Click on the links below to see each.
You can find even more of my growth charts in my Etsy shop here. They all have the option to be personalized with your child’s name and make a wonderful gift.
P.S. This is our best seller 🙂
I know we just said we never wanted Summer to end, but my new line of Halloween greeting cards is now available and we couldn’t help but share! You can find these cards wherever Recycled Paper Greetings cards are sold and at independent retailers nationwide. Here they are if you’d like to see:
It was so exciting to flip through the Home Decorators Collection Spencer & Gracie Catalog this month and see one of my canvases!
Haven’t picked up a Father’s Day card for Dad yet? Make him laugh with one of these Father’s Day Disclaimers! You can find them wherever Recycled Paper Greetings Cards are sold or at independent retailers nationwide.
Teacher Appreciation Week is next week! Here is the gift we made for my boys’ teachers, complete with Starbucks gift cards and their sweet little faces.
We are also excited to introduce a new service we’ve been working on for quite some time now. Places for Faces is an application that helps you to personalize any party with faces! Using Places for Faces, you can upload an image of yourself or a friend and add a variety of stickers that match the occasion such as birthday hats, bow ties, tiaras, veils, and so much more. You then choose from a range of templates such as cupcake toppers and thank you notes that save directly to your computer to print as many times as you like. Here is the birthday party that inspired Places for Faces one year ago!
We are thrilled to be in the final stages of preparation and cannot WAIT to launch Places for Faces! If you are interested in being one of the first to try the application, add your email to the subscription list at the bottom of this post. We can’t wait to share it with you!
For this project, we uploaded the boys’ pictures to Places for Faces and added the yellow flower sticker. We are constantly finding more and more ways to use Places for Faces, especially when we’ve got these cute little mugs to work with!
Click the link above or the image below to download the free PDF! I left a space for you to hand write your child’s name or have them sign it themselves!
1. Have your child help paint the terracotta pot. Let dry completely.
2. Add the Styrofoam ball to the bottom of the pot (this is to help the picks to stay where you want them).
3. Cover the Styrofoam with moss.
4. Attach the thank you note, face, gift card, or anything else you’d like to add to the plastic picks using tape or glue.
5. Insert gift card and thank you note into the pot, stabilizing it within the foam ball.
This sweet craft would make a great Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift as well!
Are you making anything for Teacher Appreciation week? We’d love to see it!
