Spring Flowers

I finally got to make that pair of hair flower hairpins for the shop. They are a wonderful medium tone purple gerbera daisy. The color of them actually reminds me of the old lilac trees of my childhood home back in Illinois.

These are a steal for $6 plus shipping. I have some more great silk flowers that will be turned into hairpins in the near future so look for them soon.

Business Cards

I've had the same business card for nearly a year now, it's a beautiful card designed by another Etsy seller. For the past year, I've been printing these on really nice glossy cards on my computer. The really nice glossy cards cost about $20 for a package of 200 cards from Office Max.

In reading the Etsy forums today, I discovered Gotprint. I just ordered 1000 glossy, full color business cards (I just uploaded the PNG file to their website) for $21.95, and that even included shipping. That's about what I spent on a package of cards alone, not to mention the amount of ink a full color card can suck up. I feel like the folks in the V-8 commercials.
