Shop Talk - getting ready for the holidays

Happy Monday friends!

For the last several months I've been working on a few new things for the shop.

First up, my 2014 Bible verse calendar.

2014-verse-calendar

I have wanted a little monthly calendar with basic Bible verses for a little inspiration and when I couldn't find just what I was looking for, I made my own. I thought it would be nice to give out to friends and family at Christmas so I bought some little cotton bags and designed a stamp for them. The stamp says "do all things with love."


2014-verse-calendar2

There are 12 unique designs of a Bible verse for each month and each is printed at 4x6 on card stock. The back is left blank so you can record important events throughout each month and then neatly store the year away in the bag. Each set is packaged in a sturdy box with a little kraft crinkle paper and ready to ship.



The next two items in the shop are digital graphics, aka clip art, and all are hand drawn by myself then digitized for you to use!

I started with a fall set, "it's fall y'all."

fall-y'all-png-files

There are pumpkins, leaves, banners and some text, all making up 27 graphics and they are available in both transparent PNG and vector EPS. You can click on the images to link over to the shop listing for more details.



The second set it called, "merriest" and is a holiday/Christmas/winter collection.

cover---merriest

There are ornaments, packages, more banners and more fun text, all making up 29 graphics, also available in both PNG and EPS formats.



If you have an image editing program, like photoshop or illustrator, you can use these graphics. Some creative uses could include:
  • stationary or other printed pieces
  • diy cards or party favors
  • blog graphics
  • invitaions

I have two more Christmas sets that I'll be adding to the shop soon so check back soon!



AND just to make the week a little sweeter, because this Saturday is my birthday and all, I'm giving away two calendars to a random person - one for them and one for them to gift.

To enter:
- leave a comment telling me happy birthday.

kidding. you can comment about whatever you would like

Details:
- one comment per person
- deadline to enter is Thursday at 10 pm
- winner chosen at random and announced Friday
- open to US residents only

That's it.

I hope you have a great week!

  72. This is not holiday-related, but I would love it if you created and sold a print of either of the following two verses. If you did, I would totally buy them! Just a thought!

    The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.
    -Proverbs 14:1

    Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing...
    -1 Peter 3: 8, 9a
