Mother's Day (Midwest)

It's a quiet day here. Joey took the kids swimming while I finished up some major filing, invoicing, printing, and posting on Etsy. It feels so good to clear off my desk.

Laurie and I are gearing up for the next market on Poppytalk, so I spent a good part of the morning photographing all the cards and tags that I printed Friday and Saturday. I even spent some time designing a new sleeve for our card sets. I had some kraft paper on hand which worked well with the cards I printed.

The color palette I'm working with was inspired by, of all things, Candice Olson from Divine Design, and her river rock wall mural. I printed a taupe with a slight metallic shimmer to it, on crisp white. Also a milky chocolate color on pool, and kraft. So soothing. Oh how I love my new ink tubes.

As you can see, I'm slowly migrating away from my favorite, repeated too often, color theme of pool and red. Notice I can't let go of the pool yet.

Have a good week folks.
