How Did it Get to be December?

The past couple of months have just flown by.  I'm still busying making cards in the studio.  Pondering what I'd like to do for my little handmade side hustle in the new year.  Working through some ideas on how to post more in the Project Journal.  Last but not least, getting ready for Christmas.  I need to get my Christmas Cards sent and get gifts wrapped.  Our Christmas tree still needs put up and I have to get fudge made and in the mail to our parents.  

During the month of November and the early part of December, I made 110 Christmas Cards.  Some of them for myself and some of them went into the shop.  There are still a few sets left, which will go on sale soon!

Cards Looking for a Cause

I'm a giver, it's what I do. However, I need to know what I gave meant something. With that said I'm seeking out ways to share my handmade cards. I make them by the dozens. 
If you have a cause that needs handmade cards please reach out, click the Let's Connect tab and share your cause that needs cards. It doesn't have to be an official cause, just someone who would love a handmade parcel of handmade cards. 
I also sell cards and art, click the shop tab or the Etsy tab to see more of my work.

Love for Lindsay Thank You Card Project

Over the past few weeks, I've been posting pics of thank you cards on the Inked Inspirations Facebook Page and in my Instagram feed and I've left you wondering what I was up to. The time has come to reveal this huge project of love. 

On the 30th of June, my friend Lindsay had a freak accident that broke her C5 and C6 vertebrae. This left her paralyzed from the neck down. After undergoing surgery to remove bone fragments and stabilize the injury, she began her recovery. Lindsay's spinal cord is severely bruised, and it's unclear how much mobility she will regain. Since the surgery, she has regained some feeling in her arms and hands. Lindsay was accepted into a rehab facility in Colorado and has been posting updates for friends and family to share her journey.  

Fast forward to how this project came to be a reality. With every update, they have talked about not knowing how to begin to thank everyone who's shared support, love, and prayers during her journey. Every time I've heard these words, I couldn't' help but think - "I can help with that" and so began the Thank You Card Project.

I knew I would need help with this project because it was my desire to make a lot of thank you cards. I asked a couple of my crafting pals to help and told them to keep it a secret between us. When a roll of stamps was donated that really sealed the deal on the number of cards we needed to make.  One roll of stamp = 100 cards. We surpassed our goal and made 140 cards!  These cards were made in two states, Alaska and Wyoming, by three card makers and we couldn't be prouder of this project.  

You can view all of the cards by visiting the Love for Lindsay Thank You Card Project Album.
