Greeting Cards – Now Accepting Some Online Orders

 

I’ll be accepting internet sales for my greeting cards. Stay tuned, there will be a more traditional e-commerce store front coming too!

Details:

  • All Greeting Cards are Blank Inside
  • Each card comes with an envelope
  • Price:
    • 1 card for $5, or any combination of 5 cards for $20.
    • Plus Sales Tax, as well as Shipping & Handling.

 

7 designs to choose from in 5×5″ sizes:

Six designs printed on Metallic Pearl Cardstock. You can view some video here, to see the specialty paper.

  1. Texas Longhorns I (one facing, one mostly turned away)
  2. Texas Longhorns III (side profiles)
  3. Quoth the Raven
  4. Tulip
  5. Quacked Up Pair (Ducks)
  6. Poppy

One design printed on Glossy 130# Paper.

  1. This Side of the Pond
Things of Note:
  • Some Postal Services may require extra postage on the 5×5″ square shaped pieces of mail.
  • On the 5×5″ Metallic Pearl cards, because the inside of the card has the same paper treatment as the front, this means that it’s a bit tricky to write on. I’ve had the best success with Sharpie Markers (not to be confused with the Sharpie Pens), but you will need to give it about 10 seconds to prevent smudging.

2 designs to choose from in 5×7″ sizes:

Printed on 14 pt cardstock, with High Gloss UV Coating on the outside, the inside is uncoated to make it easier to write on.

  1. Peacock
  2. Sunflowers – IV

Art Anywhere

I am a big believer that no space is too small for art. Whether it’s your office in a row of cubicles, a locker, or a wee little nook, you can always fill it with things that inspire and move you.

In that spirit, I’ve put together a bunch of mini-frames, with 3×3 inch prints inside them of my photos, which I’ll be selling at my booth in the Foust Event Center for $10 a piece this upcoming weekend (May 19-21, 2017) at Main Street Days in Grapevine, Texas. Here’s a sneak peak of what’s available:

 

All things being Equine – la vie Bovine!

One of the things I enjoy about the peak of wildflower season from March – June here in Texas, is that often times the best wildflower fields can be found in the countryside along with the livestock from which farmers and ranchers derive their livelihood. Ennis, Texas is known for their bluebonnets, and the area garden club works on seeding their surrounding countryside, providing maps for tourists which even include other photo ops of interest, such as that all too stereotypical Texas Longhorn and even horses. One of the owners leaves out a bucket of grain for visitors, so you can tempt the horses to the fence line for photos. Whether it’s Ennis, or other areas of the Texas Hill Country, you never quite know what you might find unless you go exploring!
