layout ideas

Some ideas work. Some don't. This is how the process works. And, this is how I work with some of those ideas–to make them work. Offensive? Maybe. But, sometimes that's what the holidays are all about. Think 'ugly sweater parties' or drunk uncles with halitosis.

These offensive beauties will soon be available soon on my Etsy shop. Of course, the cards on Etsy will be a finished product…not some stars debossed in green ink on cream paper with red Sharpie scrawled across some scrap.
