As the idea of selling cards initially formed in my mind, I kept asking myself why someone would order my cards when they could go across the street and buy a card on demand at the local drug store. Mine do have the home-made advantage, but is that really enough? I determined to add an incentive to buy my cards. I offer something that the store across the street simply cannot offer. You can personalize the cards you buy! If your boy is graduating, and you think my dreamy birthday card would work, if only it were blue instead of purple, just let me know, and it's done! I can even change the wording! You can tweak my cards however you would like at no extra cost! My only request is an extra week. I may need to brainstorm or buy more supplies for your card. So, as you look at my cards, feel free to email me about changes you would like. Send your requests to: RachelBalint@yahoo.com. I look forward to making something specifically for you! :o)

Hello all! I sincerely hope you are in a place where you can watch the leaves change, feel the crisp fall breeze, and the chill in the air. Unfortunately, I don't, so I have taken to making my home the essence of fall! I have pumpkin spice candles lit often, and a red/orange theme in my kitchen. With my next check, I plan to invest in some fall decorations to invite the essence of fall into my humble abode. I dream of autumn colored garlands gracing the tops of the walls, pumpkins set in corners or as centerpieces, and a few carefully selected decorations to keep watch on the windowsill. I think I am falling in love with Fall! As I walked through the craft stores, some decorative little items jumped out of me, and soon several little cards arranged themselves in my mind. You can find them in the "monthly" section. And then let's all bask in the essence of Autumn!
