hand drawn cards


My stepdaughter recently shared a picture she snapped of a random collection of cards, gift wrap, tags, and odds and ends that I had painted for our grandchildren and members of our family on various occasions over the last decade.

TRUST ME…..YOU’LL LOVE THIS: novelty basics

“Novelty basics” may sound like an oxymoron – but it is a great way to approach updating your “look” for a new season and maximizing your investment.
