New Postcard Designs

As the first show of 2009 draws nearer I am working on new inventory items that are in everyone's budget, even amidst these tough financial time, so postcards, note cards, magnets, and pendants are my priority right now.

Here are the 2 postcard fronts I designed today...I would love some feedback before I go to print so let me know your thoughts :-)

A Wonderful Day

I loved my horoscope today so I decided to share it...

"This is a wonderful day. You're going to be reminded just how loved you are by your closest friends. There's a lot of warmth coming your way today, and it's all coming from the people who choose to walk the same path as you."

Wishing everyone a wonderful day today and everyday!

Western Shore of Maryland

This past weekend Rob and I went to visit my Uncle who lives in California...California, Maryland that is...

Just like the confusion with many of the city's names making you do a double take, so is it's name of the "Western Shore." This area isn't West within the state at all, but it is the West peninsula of the Chesapeake, and thus the name.

We had an amazingly clear cloudless day, but the temperatures were still hovering around 30 with wind chill.

Above pictured are the Calvert Cliffs formed over 15 million years ago when Southern Maryland was covered my shallow sea. These cliffs are best known for the over 600 species of fossils which have been found amongst these rocks; the most numerous fossils found are that of shark.

Knowing that the weather conditions would probably lend to a beautiful sunset we went out to find some good photo opportunities right at dusk. We drove to Solomons Island and found some breathtaking beauty. Nature did not let me down...the sunset was quite wonderful!

When the weather gets nicer and boating season starts again we will definitely be back to traverse this area from the water. Solomans Island was a quaint sailing town with what looked to be some great restaurants and bars, although seasonal like much of Marylands' shore towns.
