Less is Best

It’s December 1st and time is getting tighter for making Christmas cards. My mantra this year has been “Less is Best” and I’ve simplified my process immensely.

For the most part I stick to a simple image paired with a coordinating sentiment on a one-layer card. Here are a few of my favourite clean and simple holiday designs which are in stock at Posie Row…

Cards for Posie Row

My market season has come to an end for 2015 after participating in the Quidi Vidi Plantation Open House this weekend past. I just love that venue and it’s inspiring to be surrounded by so many brilliant artisans.

This past year has been a wild ride and I couldn’t have asked for anything better, really. If I had to guess, I’d estimate that I’ve sold just over 2000 cards in 2015. I haven’t slowed down for one single minute and it has really paid off. Checking off my bucket-list one item at a time.

Last year around this time I decided that I might like to go back to school and I even applied online and paid the application fee. But when I saw the portfolio requirements I totally chickened out. After speaking with a few friends enrolled in the Graphic Design program at CONA, I am feeling a bit more encouraged to pursue that path… just not yet.

Maybe my path will choose itself, sometimes things have a strange way of working out… even when it doesn’t seem that way.
