Anyone who reads this regularly knows how beyond happy, thrilled, elated, inspired, astounded, and most importantly, touched I am to the response Mom’s drawings have had over this last year. It’s been beyond my wildest dreams. What started out as a way to hopefully show these drawings to the world, and frankly, to help me in my grief of losing her, has now become an international business. Okay, it was a couple of orders from England, but I still have to pinch myself. In this year, the line has expanded from custom prints to hand printed notecards. Flavor Paper has created the Tres Chic wallpaper. I hear it’s going to be on a wall near you in Las Vegas. Through Zazzle, I’ve been able to design some fun products affordable to everyone – magnets, mugs, invitations, postcards, iPhone and iPad cases and now a 2012 calendar showcasing over 2 dozen of the drawings and tote bags. Here’s a peek:
Trés cool, huh? What fun to put together. And here’s a sample of one of the totes:
There will be many more products to come. I’d love your feedback too. What would you like to see?
As a gift to you, our First Anniversary Sale, there will be a 25% discount on all custom prints and notecards for the entire month of September. Enter code FIRSTYEAR at checkout. The discount doesn’t apply to Flavor Paper or Zazzle as they are owned by other’s who aren’t having an anniversary. What can I say?
So thank you from the bottom of my heart. You’ve helped a daughter overcome a very difficult time in her life. You’ve helped an artist’s work come to life again, to give her the recognition she so justly deserved. And you’ve helped establish a successful new business. In this troubling economic time, that’s not an easy thing to do. Now onwards to year 2!
