It’s been a long time coming, but I finally did it.

I’ve been making cards for awhile and I’ve been trying and trying to sell them.  I’ve had some success with having some of my cards at the flower shop that did the flowers for my wedding.

I also want to try to see if I can sell my cards on my own.

I’ve decided to make card sets.  They are a set of 5 cards.  Each set may vary.  They cost $20 with $5 shipping.

I’ve revealed my very first card set on Instagram (@shopcutieq).  You can also purchase through that Instagram account by contacting me through the comments.

Without further ado, here is my first card set, Watercolor Card Set.

This card set features a watercolored background.  There are two ‘cheers,’ or congratulatory greeting cards, two birthday cards, and one ‘thank you’ card.

UntitledEach card is watercolored by me.  Each card is hand-stamped by me.  Each card is put together by me.

While only ONE card set is available for immediate sale, if asked, I can create this card set again for you to own.  Just allow me a 1-2 weeks from ordering so I can recreate this set again. With all things handmade, subsequent sets may look slightly different from what is shown in the picture.  I promise you, the quality will be the same.

I haven’t posted this on Etsy yet, but if you are interested in owning a set like this, please follow me on Instagram, @shopcutieq, and contact me there.  I do plan on posting these sets on Etsy once I create about 5 more card sets.

If everything works out, I plan on releasing a card set a week.

Please consider shopping CutieQ for your greeting card needs!

When 2013 started, I decided this was the year to scrapbook.

The method I chose was Project Life.  Because I wanted to save money, I decided to NOT use the official PL products, but use what I have and make it work.

You can see the progress on my scrap blog, CutieQ Cards n Crafts.

Yesterday, M and I were looking through the pages I had already finished.  We were pointing at people and objects.  She was saying who they were, and what the objects were.  It’s always so cute seeing her pointing out my pictures and Hubby’s pictures.

When it came to her pictures, I was expecting her to say “pishure.”  For the longest time, she would identify herself as “pishure” (translation – picture).

So last night, when we were pointing out faces, I pointed to hers and asked her who it was..

“Mah-lia”

She said her name!

The emphasis was on the wrong syllable.. it’s should be “mah-LI-ya” but hey.. it’s better than “pishure!”

She loves looking at pictures, and I’m so glad I’ve decided to start scrapbooking.  Nights like last night that make it so worth it!
