Posts Tagged ‘thank you cards

I’ve always loved watching people write with a brush using their water colors.  I always felt like I couldn’t do it, or that my writing was never good enough.

I still don’t think I’m anywhere near as good as those people I watch on Youtube, but I’m starting to like what I create.

This is how I came up with this next card set:  Assorted Brush Script Card Set

UntitledEach card is hand scripted by me using watercolors on white cardstock.  Each card is blank inside so that you can add your own personalized message inside.

Each card set is made to order so please allow 1-2 weeks after receiving the payment for your set to be shipped out.

Like all things handmade, the items you receive may not look exactly like what you see in the photo.  There will be some slight variations, but that’s the beauty of handmade, right?  Every item is one of a kind!!

This card set is $20 plus $5 for shipping.

I hope you like it!  You will be seeing it posted on Etsy soon.

If you have any questions, or would like to see specific cards or cardsets made, please do not hesitate to leave me a comment below and we can get the conversation started!

Everyone knows I LOVE to make cards.. I love making invitations, birthday cards, greeting cards, thank you cards, wedding cards.. etc.. etc.

Check out my craft blog, “CutieQ Cards n Crafts”

So when it came time for Little Ms birthday party, I knew it was going to be great.  I’d make the invitations, decorations, and thank you cards.

That was the easy part!

I’m currently working on the “Thank you” cards, and that’s so much fun! 

But I really suck at writing them out and mailing them.

I love mass producing my cards.. I think it’s fun and therapeutic. 

The stuff that is hard for me, mainly because of time constraints, is writing them out and the sending them off..

It’s not hard trying to find things to say as a “thank you” to the great people that gave M her birthday gifts.. it’s just finding time.

I procrastinate.  I get lazy.  I lose track of time.

It’s been a month since she’s turned a year old.  It’s been a month since her birthday party.

What’s the proper etiquette when sending out thank you cards?  How many weeks do I have to send them out?

I finally did what I’ve been itching to do for the longest time..

I finally set up my Etsy store:  CutieQ Cards n’ Crafts by ArtsyViray

I’ve currently got one item for sale..

I want to start with some simple cards, maybe some embellished die-cuts, and if I’m brave enough.. some cross-stitching projects.. that’s why I named the store “cards n crafts” because I don’t want to limit myself to just paper products..

When I initially signed up for Etsy, I set up a store… but I never, ever, ever thought of posting or selling.  But I think that this is a good time to start..

Granted.. I am having a baby in September.. and my crafting time will be dramatically cut when she comes out.. but it’s good to start and get my name out now because Etsy has so many sellers, who knows if I’m even going to make a sale any time soon.  I’d love to think that I’d be successful immediately, but I have to be realistic and know that these things take time and perseverance.

I’d like to try to squeeze out as many crafts and I can before the little one comes out.. and then take a brief hiatus while I learn to incorporate the baby into our everyday routine.. and then hopefully get back to making some simple things to keep my store going..

I made sure to note that I will not be making or taking any custom orders.  What they see is what they get and what the get is what is already made.

I hope to make a little bit of extra spending money with this new little endeavor I’m venturing in.. if anything, I can use the money to feed my crafting habit without dipping into our family budget..

I don’t expect overnight success.. nor do I expect making a living out of this thing.. but I would like to see where this takes me..

Wish me luck, good vibes, prayers and all that good stuff.. and if you want.. buy something!  Hee hee..
