Announcement   Christmas items galore! NEW - Canvas Prints! Keep watching, as I am uploading new calendar and gift items frequently! Also, any of my images can be available as 5x7 prints, totes, Weekender totes, and pillows. If you see an image you like, check the appropriate Sections on my shop to see if it's available on other items. If you don't see it, convo me and I can make it happen for you!

Be aware that Totes, Pillows and Canvas Prints need to be ordered by Wednesday, December 13 to probably receive before Christmas. Holiday orders and a bad snowstorm in the Southeast have combined to slow down normal 10-day receipt of these items. I say "probably" because further bad weather, holiday overload on USPS, etc. may conspire against us, BUT I will do the very best I can!

Lots of great downloadable cards and calendars, totes, pillows and downloadable prints to frame as gifts! 2018 Calendars, too - I have some posted and more to come.

If you came to my shop via a pin on Pinterest, convo me and I'll share a discount coupon with you - let me know what item you clicked through on!

I did this painting for a friend to put in an old cupboard door frame and this picture shows part of it in that frame. I've added pillows, tote bags and prints to my Etsy shop with this image.

About

Accidental purveyor of cards and calendars and other gifts

I've been making custom calendars for years as gifts to clients of my marketing business. People started saying, "you should sell these". I listened to that for several years, fooled with the idea for a couple of years in terms of the "how" (Etsy shop? other venues?), and finally decided to take the plunge.

Since then, I have become very interested in watercolor painting and have been veering toward images I've painted for many of my items. I also do computer-generated graphic arts and have used some of those mages on calendars, and I like to manipulate photos to achieve different colors and looks, and have used some of these on items.

I have added totes and pillows bearing photographic images or images from watercolor paintings I've done. I'm working with MWW (Manual Woodworkers & Weavers) out of North Carolina, and they have done a wonderful job on the items I've seen come off their fabric imprinting line, and the material and sewing quality is excellent!

    Welcome to The Elderberry Blossom! I am so excited to offer my cards, calendars and gift items out on Etsy! I paint watercolors mostly, do some photography, and apply those images to my cards, calendars, and gift items. I also do some OOAK items.

Production partners

  • Manual Woodworkers & Weavers (MWW on Demand)

    Hendersonville, NC

    I have been very, very pleased with the quality of the materials used and the print-to-fabric process MWW uses - the color values from my photos and artwork are true and vivid, and the quality of the sewing is excellent, as well. Excellent value!

Additional policies and FAQs
I have, in the past, created calendars for friends using their photos of kids, pets, and the like. It is particularly fun for someone to have a great calendar with photos that are seasonal in nature when possible. Contact me through the shop about making a custom calendar for you! Those calendars will be "print your own".

Custom images can also be done on greeting cards. Item will be a downloadable, "print your own" PDF.

Many of my images from cards can be applied to the Pillows, Totes and Canvases - convo me to ask so I can check the image size to be sure it will print well on the item and size you want. I can advise you if the image works so you can order.
