Like most everyone, it kind of sickens me to walk into Ikea and see Christmas decorations. I'm not ready, I say! I'm not ready! But ready or not, the holidays are coming, and quickly. Last year I was inundated with holiday card orders at the last minute - I know, I know, you don't want to think about the holidays until at least Thanksgiving - but last minute orders stress me out, so too bad for you! ;)
In order to avoid the mad rush that was 2010, I'm offering 10% off the design fee on all custom cards through November 10. And as always, past clients don't have to pay to have themselves re-drawn, so potentially you may only need to pay for printing and envelopes!
Check out this year's designs (or come up with your own cute idea!):
The following two "cards" are belly bands, which you can wrap around a 4" x 6" photo, or your holiday newsletter!
And please tell your friends, because you've only got until November 10 - friends don't let friends pay full price when they don't have to, am I right or am I right?

I’ve been asked a few times recently if I offer gift certificates. The answer (up until yesterday), was “no, but I should!” Apparently, people *really* wanted them after I started talking about the Family Portraits, which have a set price.
Yesterday I created some gift certificates and uploaded them to the shop. Other than the family portraits, most of my products have variable costs, so I wasn’t sure what increments to offer. Right now, I have $25, $50, $250 (the cost of a custom drawing), $300 (a family portrait), and $500 (a round-about cost for design fee, printing and envelopes for most simple projects). The gift certificates are also good for use in the shop.
Each gift certificate is a fun “mad lib” style note with all the information your loved one will need to redeem it. It is printed on thick, high-quality paper and comes in a fun colored envelope for a sweet presentation!Comment
