As I promised, the items you saw in my Park Ave Fest booth are being uploaded to my Etsy shop. This week, I’ve added several of the mixed card sets and prints of my children’s illustrations. Looking for something a little different from the same old cards you find in Target or Hallmark? Stop by my shop for a variety of card sets and individual cards for every occasion. All of my cards and prints are handmade and packaged in my studio in Rochester, NY.

New this season are the mixed cards sets.These sets give you several card design options with one purchase! Here are a sampling of a few of the collections.
