Our mail has been sooooo slow lately....it was pretty bad back in December which everyone attributed to all the holiday mailings, people buying gifts online etc, but it’s now March...yes already!) and it is still taking letters 2-3 weeks just to go across town.

6” x 6” One Sheet Wonder with Berry Blessings

What is it about trying to get as many cards as possible out of a single piece of Designer Series Paper?  Is it the challenge of “Can I do it?” Is it because it is a test of our creativity?  Is it because we want to get as much as we can for our money?… Continue reading 6” x 6” One Sheet Wonder with Berry Blessings
