List 3 of your favorite designs you want me to feature. Tell me something about each design.
Anna's Vision 2012 Wall Calendar
My mother was an artist who never exhibited her work. I have tons of her paintings hanging in my house. As a project this winter, I photographed some of my favorites and created a calendar.
Recipes 3 Ring Binder
One winter day I was making a soup. All the cut up veggies looked beautiful to me and I took their picture. Here they are on a binder. This has become one of my best selling products.
Lilac Bridal Shower Announcement
Just recently, I began to make wedding collections. This lilac wedding design has been very popular. This is the bridal shower invitation. There is a link to the whole Lilac Wedding Collection in the product description.
This is one of my personal favorite designs from your shop
This poster features two adorable African Penguins standing on a rocky ledge. They are aquatic, flightless birds whose wings have become flippers. Each has a black stripe and black spots on the chest. The pattern of spots is unique for every penguin, just like human fingerprints. They have pink glands above their eyes and pink and black feet.
Rico: These two are really adorable! I love penguins and this is a beautiful poster.
