A Valentine Surprise

To my surprise, I ended up designing a line of eco-kid-friendly (and grown-up-kid-friendly!) Valentine cards.
“Robots?” I asked Hayley, owner of EcoPiggy, who had the idea and gave me suggestions for images that would appeal to grade-schoolers. I lamented, “I can’t draw a robot!” Well, she proved me wrong, and the Super-Heart set is now the most popular of the three.
All of the cards are printed from my original watercolors on recycled paper with soy-based inks, so the planet will feel your love, too!
Interested? Here’s a direct link to order them:
And for those of you in the southern Oregon area, you can get the cards at Terra Firma Gift in Jacksonville starting this weekend. They’ll also be featured there during a special Valentine event on Saturday, February 1st, from 2-4pm; come enjoy samples of sweetness by Lux Cakes and face painting by local artists.
Wishing all a happy Valentine’s Day…and delightful surprises from directions you’d never suspect!
Lots of love,
