Announcement    ***************

ORDER 5 CARDS AND RECEIVE FREE SHIPPING! JUST CLICK ON THE 5 CARD SPECIAL AND THEN MESSAGE ME WHICH CARDS YOU ARE CHOOSING.
Or just order whatever you need... though I did want to point out that promotion!

All of my cards start out as an original children's painting, I have painted and then make into cards. A lot of my verses are inspired and a little long! So I also offer any card you like in a couple of different versions:
Blank; with no text inside or on the front of the card
Semi-blank; Text on the front of the card but blank inside
Adjusted Text: I can change anything just ask me... From Son to Grandson, from best friend to sister, from Mom to Aunt or Grandma (you get the idea) We can also change the occasion - from Thank you to Birthday...etc.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by. Please keep coming back because we are working daily, creating & adding to our little shop!
And please check out our new whimsical line of Angels.
I am back from my show and my shop is open again! Please keep watching for new updates! By the way I sold all the Angels I had!!! Though I saved the 3 here for you. They are waiting for someone to adopt them!

About

Art is never finished... only Abandoned ~~~~ Leonardo da Vinci

I have always loved to draw but I thought that I was going to be a writer. I thought it would be the greatest thing for little kids to go to the library and look for my name. I guess I waited too long, because now Amazon & Kindle have taken the place of books on a shelf. And so I have a blog and my greeting cards. I love to watch people reading them. My husband has a joke that if you cry, I'll give it to you for free. Smile. Because you know, crying is the best compliment of all. It means that I have somehow touched your heart.
I had a little shop that was called "Rose in the Woods" meaning... "A thing of beauty in an unexpected place." It was tucked inside the best street in the best little town, inside a historical clock tower building. People would come and bring their out of town guests to it and I'd hear them whisper to them..."This is my favorite store." It did really well and we were blessed. And I could sell my cards and paintings there and they did well.
But in 2003 two days before Christmas an earthquake hit out little town and my little store was crunched. We lost our store, but we didn't lose everything. Far from it. My daughter was 15 at the time and she'd asked to wait in the car while I ran in to open up. I talked her into coming in. She did and was not in my car that was crunched flat by the roof sliding down on it.
I have had to reinvent my life a few times but that was probably the most dramatic of times. Anywaay, I had to go out and work for other people. And I did for more than 12 years. But last year I was laid off from my Event Coordinating job due to the sale of the hotel I worked at.
And instead of being sad, I thought that this was my opportunity to pick up where I left off and do what I loved to do. So with the support of my sweet husband, I am following my dream again. Writing and painting and doing art shows like Sugarplumfestivals.com and landing once again at my old Etsy shop trying to make it work.
I have given myself a year. Every purchase is appreciated because you are supporting my dream and helping me grow one step closer to my dream.
Thank you if you have read this whole thing. LOL. I will be adding new cards and art as often as possible! This SPRING 2018 I hope to have a lot more "Etsy Shelves" in my Etsy Shop full!
Thank you and may God bless you everyone!

    It is a funny thing how art and writing are just a part of me. No matter how many years go by, they travel with me and sometimes they wait a season or two while I try to believe that they are not there. But they are. Always waiting.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I can make any card blank inside, change to birthday, or sister from best friend etc... I can change hair color on dolls etc... though dolls may not be exactly as seen because they are one of a kind. I can also write a poem for that special someone for a special occasion. Just email me and let me know what you are looking for. Each poem is considered custom and a flat charge of $20 will be charged for each one. I can include special memories, names, etc. You just provide the love!
