As I recall it shipped on time. Beautiful cards, nice packaging (important to me only because I’m giving the notecards as a gift ).

We love this wall calendar. The photography of prairie flowers and plants is gorgeous and the quality of paper is amazing for framing. It is much more than a calendar for this year. We will frame the prints and use some (but not all!) as gifts. Can't wait for next year's calendar! The delivery was rapid and well protected.

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it (Confucius)
I'm Terra Rathai, a fine art and garden photographer & Chief Artistic Officer at Avant Garden Studio. I started Avant Garden with a blog and 365 Project in 2010.
Through that year of intense experimentation, and tens of thousands of pictures (most of them very, very bad), I discovered my own artistic perspective - a process that combines an awakened eye and years of studying art history with my love of nature.
My work is fueled by a sense of wonder and a desire to express the extraordinary beauty of the everyday world. People often comment on how calming my pictures are or connect with the words I've paired with an image. Sometimes the simple beauty of a subject inspires a greater sense of wonder. I love it most when someone looks at a picture and responds with a deep breath and sigh of contentment.
Inspiration. Connection. Peace. That's the whole idea.
Minneapolis-based artist & nature lover combining a sense of wonder with a love of words and earthy, eco-friendly materials. I strive to see & share the beauty in everyday life. My artist statement in four words: "Wow! Look at that!".
I purchase blank journals from Guided Products and add my original photo cover designs. The journals are 100% recycled and recyclable with vegetable inks. I love providing an American made product with serious eco-credibility plus the guys at Guided are really nice.
