Hip Hip Hooray We've Got New Birthdays

So that title didn't work out quite as well as I was hoping, but we've got a new line of birthday cards nonetheless. And with every new line I launch I get more and more excited, because that means we are that much closer to having a full line of greeting cards, which is my ultimate goal right now. So to kickoff our birthday line we have seven, fresh off the press, beauties. They are all 5"x7", hand illustrated and printed on natural recycled cover stock. Click on each image to go to the shop listing for more information.

Get 'em while they're hot.
Inside: Just don't count 'em.

Happiest of Birthdays to you.
Inside: Blank

Happy Birthday
Inside: Live it up.

Have a super birthday.
Inside: Hope it's more exciting than a flying dog.

Dear 30.. Let's be friends.
30-web.jpg

Since I posted my 29 accomplished in 29 list it only makes sense to do a 30 in 30 list as a follow-up and reminder to myself for when I get distracted in the monotony of everyday life. Turning thirty is not the easiest of milestones and to counteract that I am focusing on the good. No. Nope. I'm focusing on the GREAT. I feel like I finally have a solid footing and I am just getting started. My overarching goal for this year: have fun in the everyday. Life is way too short to postpone that. So my plan is to do all of the things on my list and have a blast doing them. Let's go:

1. Start running and complete a 10k - started running, but never made it to the 10k.
2. Start offering custom illustration and branding work - Done!
3. Return to the custom weddings invitation game on my own terms - (no more hand trimming) - Done!
4. Take HPC wholesale - Done. Yay!
5. Get a cute swim suit and go swimming in lake Michigan - didn't quite happen this year
6. Take up calligraphy - Focused more on hand lettering instead, but I have started practicing my calligraphy
7. Get a bike (with a bell) & go biking with Steve - DONE!
8. Travel: Boston, MA, and Wilmington, NC (Savannah, GA, Charleston, SC, Michigan's UP, and Traverse City, MI.
9. Plant and not kill a garden - Done!
10. Wear more cute skirts - Done!
11. Redo our backyard deck - Built a privacy fence, got a new furnace and central air and installed new basement windows instead, the deck got moved to 2014.
12. Get on my web game - be more efficient in html & css
13. Learn (well, relearn) French
14. Take a class - Took a few skillshare classes
15. Go horseback riding
16. Wake up on time to make more of my day, in other words stop hitting snooze - I like to sleep guys. This happened maybe two thirds of the time, but I am getting better.
17. Code a new portfolio website (in progress)
18. Go to a concert with Steve
19. Create a cohesive, accomplishable (and amazing) five-year business plan - Done!!
20. Get fancy at cooking - Done!
21. Take Linus on adventures - Done! We took him all over the place including the cider mill and on vacation with us to Traverse City.
22. Start a daily creative project (just started this yesterday) Done, but proved to just be too much.
23. Participate in Blogging for Books - Done!
24. Get my letterpress on
25. Knit some really cute knee socks (like this) - Nope, but I did knit some other really cute other.
26. Start writing a book - started collecting my thoughts
