I just found out that my latest design submitted to GCD, (Schnizler Christmas Card) has been chosen as a winner and will be on sale on GCD this winter! Minted has not yet posted the winners of their design challenge, so don't forget to vote for my designs there as well. Find the link to my "voting badge" on the right corner of my site.

In addition to the holiday card designs I submitted to Minted last week, I also designed a card to submit to another card company, Greeting Cards Direct. Last month, I designed a Hanukkah card for GCD and it got selected as a winner, so I am hoping to have some additional good luck.

With Megan's wedding at the end of this month, the last of the printed pieces have been completed.  Below is the invitation to the Rehearsal dinner/barbecue.  The rest of the pieces (menu, table numbers, table cards) will have to wait till after the wedding to be posted.

Yesterday I attended my good friend Bethany's baby shower. Hands down it was the most beautiful shower I have ever been to in my entire life.  As my gift for the baby girl, I made two pieces of art to hang in her nursery.

Now is the time when all the PhotoCard companies are asking for design submissions for their Holiday 2012 collection. For this first round of designs,  I decided to submit two of my original designs to Minted.  Next week I will finish working on the remaining two designs and submit those to PhotoCardDirect (where my Hanukkah card will be sold). Since a lot of companies ask designs to submit artwork, as a designer you are not allowed to submit the same design to multiple companies. I'm taking a gamble and hoping that at least one of these does well.  On the bottom right corner of my site, you will notice I included a "voting badge".  Feel free to vote for my designs directly on the Minted website that way.

(a little fun fact: they provide you with a wide variety of "photos" to use on your design layout... I always for some reason feel silly coming up with the "fake" family names though?)
