Designers Care

Well.....Howdy! After almost a full year I'm rejoining the blogosphere with a brand spankin' new website! Woohoo! Do you like it? Many, many thanks to my brilliant web coding  aficionado friend, Josh Harbert. If you find yourself needing expert web programing, Josh is your guy. I am so grateful for his thoughtfulness, ingenuity and patience with me through the process!

In other news, I recently got to join a group of talented, big hearted designers who are raising funds for folks who continue to struggle in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Jackie Mangiolino of Believe Notes had the idea to rally her community of fellow designers toward the cause of hurricane relief and the determination to put a whole lota love and hard work into coordinating it all and violá, Designer's Care was born. I just was able to join a couple days ago with my Bear Hug drawing (above), but it's been going strong for a couple weeks and has already raised almost $900 in donations! The cards are all hand stamped or embossed and all the profits go toward the Red Cross's Disaster Relief fund, still very much needed for those rebuilding their lives after the storm.

I have so many favorites from the collection of designs, but here are just a couple... Check out the Esty page for a complete picture of all the indy design awesomeness and to see the different package deals, inks and paper selections to choose from.
