Here's a little about me. I started designing cards after my husband and I were both laid off on the same day. Yep, that's right, we went from two incomes to no income. To put it simply, money got really tight, really fast. After being in charge of a large art department for an international giftware company for 10 years, I was looking for something new. After months of no income, I decided to make my side hobby of designing holiday cards for friends and church family, I decided to try making a little side money with it to help tide us over. Well, long story short, people liked my work so I expanded. I now love what I do and working on my own schedule allows me to volunteer with my favorite organizations (like Royal Family, an organization that helps foster kids), my church youth group, and so on. I also get to support the family so my husband can focus on his studies (he's working on his PhD so he can land is dream job of being a New Testament Professor). We may also have an overly loved angel of a Pomeranian, named Halo.
