I am feeling productive so far this year.  My New Year’s resolution to design one card each week is coming along swimmingly.  My second card is my most popular fabric art design, so I have decided to turn it into a greeting card.

My New Year’s Resolution December 31, 2009

I hope you all have a perfect 10…2010 that is!

2009 is coming to an end, and I am looking toward the future.  My goal for 2010 is simple: one new card design per week.  If all goes as planned by the end of 2010, I will have 52 new Glademade designs.  I will be posting each new card design here, and I will be giving away one card for each new design.

Design #1:

It's 2010...just checking in!

Cherrywood Art Fair this Weekend! December 11, 2009

The Cherrywood Art Fair is this weekend in Austin, TX.  Have you been before?  I checked it out last year, and was amazed.  I ended up going back twice in the same weekend.  There will be original work by more than 80 artists, free admission, kids art activities, craft workshops, and a gigantic silent auction.  This is my first year to participate, and I’m going to have a lot of great art and greeting cards.  I will be sharing a booth outside with Studio 3 (screen-printed tea towels and cloth napkins) and Sacred Soil (organic gardening).

Who doesn’t enjoy a good pool party, barbecue, or total rager in the summertime?  I certainly do.  That’s why I made these party invitations.

Check them out, and let me know what you think!
