It's been close to one month since my last update, and in that time I had two really bad colds, I took a short trip to Seattle, and I found out some great news. My greeting card line was accepted by New Seasons Market here in the Portland metro area. New Seasons is a chain of 12 (soon-to-be 15!) healthy grocery stores emphasizing organic and local foods and local home goods items.
Over the last couple of years I've had probably ten different people suggest that my greeting cards would be perfect for New Seasons. Finally, a few weeks ago, after some prompting and coaching by my good friend Lise, I applied with the wonderful help of New Seasons home goods buyer James. It all happened so quickly I was almost in shock!
So far, you can find my cards at the Mountain Park (Lake Oswego) New Seasons. My whole card line of eleven different cards is represented there, so if you're in the area and interested, please check it out. Meanwhile, my cards are still available at five other special stores and on Etsy.
I've managed to keep up with most of my blog reading, which feels good. I love this community of bloggers and love keeping in touch with the latest news from blog friends. Another thing that keeps me busy is Pinterest. It is a great way to find and store miniature tutorials and printables. I have hundreds on my boards. If you haven't discovered Pinterest yet, you might like it! :-)
Behind the scenes, I'm working on that Greenleaf Primrose dollhouse that I won in Tam Toum's giveaway over one year ago. It's shaping up to be a vintage kitchen. I'm working on a new character for that house too. I also have a new story in the works! And I may give Sophie the bear's Brambleberry Farmhouse a shabby country makeover. :-)
I hope all of you are healthy and happy. It's always a joy hearing from you. Thank you for your sweet comments! I read every one and appreciate them so much. Until next time, keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer
