After being away for a whirl wind trip to the West Coast, I’m back in the studio working on several fall projects. I’m hoping I’ll be able to share with you very soooooon!

But while I’m in the design and art trenches I would like to share with you 2 adorable baby stationery sets that are available in the AbbyDora Design shop. These personalized stationery sets make great gifts for new moms. I know one new mom used them as her own special thank you notes for all her baby gifts.
There are two cute options for you:

personalized name cards

personalized name stationery

Baby Girl cards

Each set includes 12 folded cards (4.25″x5.5″) with rounded bottom corners and corresponding colored envelopes with European flaps.The cards are printed on premium lightly textured white cover stock with archival quality pigment inks. The complete set is packaged in a clear plastic box. When you purchase this stationery, the name you’d like to appear on the cards is conveyed to me in a “Note to the Seller” or as a convo. As with all my prints and paper goods, these cards are all created, printed, and packaged by me in my studio. (huge smile.) Oh, AND I even offer a complimentary gift note if you’d like one!

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.

Park Ave Festival

by abby on July 26, 2011 | Comment

Rochester, New York is a great city in the Summer. I swear people come out of the wood work to celebrate the warm weather and the sunshine—which makes for some great outdoor fun! There are free outdoor concerts every week and even ART festivals about once a month. It’s with great excitement that I’m happy to announce that AbbyDora Design will have our own booth at the 2011 Park Ave Festival!

The Park Ave Fest will take place on:
Saturday, August 6, 2011 & Sunday, August 7, 2011
Saturday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Sunday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

It’s a magical weekend that turns the Park Ave tree lined street from Alexander Street to Culver Road into one of the largest and most fun community gatherings in Western New York! The AbbyDora Design booth will be near Jines Restaurant and the Wilson Farms on Park Ave.

Be sure to keep an eye out for my booth banner as you stroll along the walk.

You’ll find Playful Paper Goods for purchase inside the AbbyDora Design booth. I’ll have all sorts of fun individual cards for birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, and just because you’re thinking of someone you love. I’ll also have card sets for Christmas, Chanukah, thank yous, and other sets that make great gifts. I’ll also have paper goodies as party decorations for bridal and baby showers.

Finally, there will be original artwork for sale and limited edition prints as well. In preparation for the festival I’ve created a new collage-gouache series that’s perfect to decorate a child’s bedroom wall. Here’s a sneak peak at one of these new pieces.
