Anywhere near NYC this weekend?

I'll be selling the perfect gifts for your family and friends at Bust Magazine's Holiday Craftacular this Saturday the 10th (11AM - 8PM) and Sunday the 11th (11AM - 7PM) at 82 Mercer Street in SoHo. There's a $3 admission, but it's worth it to check out the 200 vendors!

I'll be at table 187 towards the back of the first room you come in -- there will be three rooms of awesomeness! (Let me know if you're a reader to get a free little something.)

Click through to Bust's post about the show. I hope to see you there!

o! tidings of comfort and joy!

I'm really excited about the holiday cards I made this year. A friend asked me to design her annual holiday postcard, and I loved how they turned out so much that I wanted to make them available for everyone.

The image was collaged by me using some of my favorite materials: vintage ledger paper, maps, and canceled postage stamps. Add in some ribbon, a doily, and some typewritten words, and you've got the makings of an eclectic, vintage-y holiday note. (Of course, the actual cards don't have a watermark on them.)

I had the collage professionally printed onto FSC-certified, eco-friendly cardstock. Each set of 6 comes with white envelopes in a white stationery box with a clear lid (which are also great for packaging up small Christmas gifts once you've sent out all your cards). The ledger paper design wraps onto the back of the card, and each card is blank inside so that you can personalize them however you wish.

Order your set in my Etsy shop! All orders placed this week will come with a strip of coordinating vintage postage stickers made from canceled stamps, which will go nicely with your cards. Use them to decorate the envelopes -- or keep them to yourself. (I won't tell if you decide to do the latter.)
