My Way

Art is not a thing, it is a way. — Elbert Hubbard

Since I’ve been churning out a shitload of cards the past couple of months, I’ve also sold an equally shitloady amount.  Lots of Etsy shops add little bits and bobs to their orders as a thank you, and I’ve always wanted to do that, too.  I could never find the right tidbit, though.  I’ve tried a bunch of little things, but they weren’t quite right.  Yesterday, as Emmett marched around my head to get me up, the lightbulb went off.

Last summer I bought a shoebox full of old postcards at a flea market, intending them for Glue Card bases.  Glue Cards are made from only magazines, junk mail and a glue stick—a quick, down and dirty creative blat.  I sent Glue Cards as my Christmas cards this past year, I’d made so many.  If I cheated and stamped “Thank You” on them (because cutting out letters is soooooo tedious), they would make the perfect “gift” for my Etsy orders.  Here are the three I made yesterday.


My day is planned.
