Vista Print....I Must Share!

Time to share a wonderful resource for excellent paper goods!

When offering art...or any type of goods to the public, I think it is vital to have unique...interesting...and artistic paper goods.  I started ordering business cards from Vista Print a couple of years ago and they this company has now become my "go to" source for business cards, post cards, envelopes, magnets, and any other type of representative paper products I might need. 
I love handmade business cards, but find them massively time consuming.  Occasionally, this is great, but to hang a handmade tag on 75 pieces of art at a retail show, is another day of work.  Whew!
So, one day while surfing around on their site, I realized they had the ability to upload photos to any of their printed materials.  I created some cards with a photo of my art and absolutely LOVED the quality!  The picture was pristine....and the price was fantastic!
Once the process was mastered by myself, I started uploading photos on everything.  I now have a collection of business cards, all with a different piece of art.  I erratically hang these cards on everything. It's now my business card, hang tag, price tag and product representative...all printed up in one.  

Along my path to creativity, many people have shared some great resources.  

"Friends find comfort in what they share
and delight in how they differ."

There's The People!

Obviously I have been reflecting back to my childhood...hmmmm, wonder what that means?  Any-who...remember folding your hands together and making the church and people?  This action is very vivid in my mind.  

I remember sitting in Sunday School and repeating after the teacher " the door and see all the people". Ahhhh.....fond memories!

Of course, with any piece of art, your own twinge of sarcasm must surface...for whatever reason.  Mine came in the church being made out of a "lotto" box.  I'm not sure what this means, but I feel certain some higher scholar whose studied "why people do what they do" would consider a small thesis regarding this artistic effort.  Hmmm...

2011 is starting out with a bang!

My Christmas Man-tique!

In the midst of some of my Christmas madness, a short reprieve was made to one of my favorite junk haunts and found this awesome chest of some kind.

The drawers were lined with green felt. I feel it was probably a tool caddy of some type....not sure, but I'm channeling a very meticulous man carrying his prized "doo-dads" organized in this little mobile case. it as my new jewelry chest!  It now houses my "tools of the fashion trade" quite neatly.

Merry Christmas to me!
