love notes


In celebration of finally having my portfolio fully uploaded—and being settled in my new apt., and surviving creating my portfolio, and getting into the BFA, and as a thank you to lovely friends and blog readers who are so supportiveI'm doing my first giveaway! If you want a chance to win this set of 8 cards, leave a comment on this post saying which card is your favorite and I'll randomly choose a winner on Saturday, Sep. 13. (giveaway is now over.) Spread the word! (this giveaway is for the cards only, envelope and box shown in pictures will not be included)









There it is. The last, but definitely not least, of my portfolio pieces. I made the box, designed the cards, and customized the envelopes myself. I think as soon as I finish school I will dedicate my life to making cards, it was my absolute favorite project this summer. If you like them too, then leave a comment to win the set!

  11. to be honest...making anyone choose a fave is kinda harsh...i mean really...they're all so adorable that picking one is kinda just as painful as going to the dessert buffet at the Paris Hotel and only picking one thing...
    However...i do like to follow the rules...and since i want to be elligible i love the phrase "just the way you look tonight"...partly because i LOVE the LOOK in that...so good...and such a good red. (you know how i feel about red's)
    anyways...there was my lengthy response/plea for kick a cards like that. you are so not trailer trash.

    p.s. we are hanging out this week. we will find time. we must. my social ego depends on it.

  13. As far as Kirtsy goes, it's like a network that people can post things to. The more clicks the "ad" or "post" gets, the higher it appears on the page. So far you have a lot of traffic, you may want to wait a bit? Not sure. I'll blog about it if you want!

  15. What a tough choice, they are all so fun! I can't pick just one, so "Everybody's gonna love today, love today, love today" and "'L' is for the way you loo at me" are my two favorites!

  16. OK, you gave a set of these cards to Nancy and she showed them to me. They are adorable, especially as a set, but I must say I like the "L is for the way you look at me" card the best. What a great idea for love notes! I would love to win these cards. Good karma, good karma, good karma....
