Announcement    Welcome to my shop, home of my perennially-popular BIRTHDAY CALENDARS as well as lots of other arty treats and paper ephemera. Everything is in stock and ready to ship. I generally ship within 24 hours of receiving an order. I am still shipping during the COVID-19 pandemic, and using all possible precautions through my local post office. I have been largely in family isolation since March 14, and we all remain healthy.

All of these cards, prints and calendars are printed locally in Ithaca from my original paintings. The cards are all blank inside for any occasion or message you choose to write, the calendars are ready to help you plan your exciting days. I'm pleased to think about where my cards will end up, what letters will be written, what walls my prints will inhabit. I will occasionally add etchings, journals, tiles, mugs, paintings, t-shirts and other treats from time to time.

My more complete website is www.christisobel.com

Thanks for shopping here, and supporting this community of independent artists and craftspeople. We appreciate your business.

Putting it on paper

Early in my freelance illustration career, I played around with making some cards from my paintings. I gave them to family and friends, and many people came back for more (and even offered to pay for them!). One thing led to another, I joined our local Farmers Market in 2000 and went to a few shows...and my card and print business was born. Since the beginning with just some note cards, my line now includes calendars, gift cards, custom wedding printing, tiles and journals. Development is always underway for new ideas, because new ideas are fun and I like making things.

All of the art is my own, and I design my cards and ephemera from scratch, not with templates or clip art.

In an age of electronic communication, using paper is more precious than ever. I believe in the lasting power of sending your message in your own handwriting, keeping a journal or sketchbook with a real pen, and in the archival value of a beautiful paper calendar.
