I've ordered more paper to print more of both the mum version, and the hearts version. I hope to have them ready over the weekend. I've started a list of names and email addresses for anyone who'd like to know when more are ready. If you'd like to be included, just send me an email at christy[at]thepetitepress[dot]com. Thanks, everyone!

Ta-da! Hot off the press for Valentine's Day:
I'm excited to be a part of the new "Love Transforms" virtual market this month on Poppytalk Handmade. If you're looking for something special for someone special, you're sure to find oodles of choices among all the fantastic artists showing there this month. (My table is here.) Thanks for visiting!

I know that was corny, but it seemed to go with these new personalized recipe cards I've been working on. They'll be available on the website soon, in the blue you see here, and also in a soft lavender and a delicious avocado green. I'll update this post as soon as they are ready.
Update: they are ready now, here. Hope you like them!
In addition to the talented friends I mentioned yesterday, I have another one to add: Judy Dersch, who also happens to be my mother. She just opened her Etsy shop this morning for her nature photography, so I wanted to share it as well. She has been the one who's inspired and encouraged me the most over the years. Visit her shop, Willow Creek Design, here.

In the meantime, I wanted to share some work by friends of mine with you. Each is a woman I admire, who inspires me, and encourages me. I'm privileged to have found such talented, kindred spirits.
Aimee Dolich, an all-around charming artist, has recently opened an Etsy shop where she's selling prints of her wonderful, witty "doodles" that are way more than just doodles. Visit her blog here, and her shop here.
My letterpress chum, Anne Hollond, has also recently opened an Etsy shop where she's selling her fabulous vinyl and oilcloth creations. They're funky and functional, and oh-so-cool. Visit her shop here. I'll write more about our letterpress adventures soon.
I've mentioned Heather Smith Jones before on my other blog, but she's constantly amazing me with new work, so it's time to check out her shop again, which now also includes letterpress work in addition to her ethereal paintings and drawings. Also, she and Alicia have just started a new year of The Noticing Project. Visit her blog here, and her shop here. I also owe her a big thank you for her mention here before the holidays. Thanks again, Heather. :)
Happy New Year, everyone. May it be everything you hope for and more.
