Holiday Season 2014

This year, I did what I usually plan, but fail, to do, which is get ready for the holiday season a full two months in advance.  First, I started working on my new holiday card offerings and then I attempted to take some photos that would do them some justice! 

Happy Holidays from San Francisco
Merry and Bright
I also signed up in advance for a pop up show at Rickshaw Bagworks which is taking place this Saturday, November 15.  They do the pop ups once a month and I figured it's a show that close to the holidays but not so late that people would have already sent out their holiday cards.  I'll be at Rickshaw Bagworks at 904 22nd St San Francisco, CA from 11am-3pm this Saturday, so stop by!

I ordered a free Etsy reader, so that I can accept non cash payments at the show.  It will also come in handy if I run out of any inventory and need to take orders that I can ship to customers once I've finished printing items just for them.  I haven't tried it out yet, but I'm excited!

I've also been working on some pretty gold foil stickers/labels that I'll be showing for the first time at the pop up show.  With my handy Silhouette Cameo, I can cut stickers into any shape I want - such as Christmas trees, gingerbread men, whales, airplanes, clouds.  I'll get photographs of those take slowly thereafter, but gold may be a little challenging to photograph.  This is an example of the ribbon label packaging that I designed, printed and then cut on the Silhouette Cameo for my Love from San Francisco labels.
