Hello, friends.. I am adding new items to the shoppe all month long, and offering free gift with purchase. It's quite exciting having a little online space, showcasing TreeCookies! You don't know how long I have been wanting to do this! See this post.
In the meantime, check out the sweetest little story on where one of my cards ended up. Thanks, Lorea (of Lo Cirque)! 

I'll also be sending out the first shoppe newsletter. I would love it if you joined <3 Have a great weekend!

Hart's Craft Fair

   Some quick shots of my TreeCookies display, at the fair last Sunday. I wish I took more photos, but had lots of fun. Hart's Fabric is quite an amazing fabric store. So happy they decided to throw this little fair in the parking lot, and will have to go back (to shop) sometime, real soon.

Below, some of my friend, Lorea's, awesome goods. Check out her new blog- Lo Cirque <3 And I can't thank Amy enough, for having me join her booth to sell some TreeCookies. Can't wait for the next one! 

P.S. You can call it a "soft opening", but I've finally added 2 things to my Etsy Shoppe. More to come within the next few weeks. I am offering free goodies with purchase all September & October. And I also have a TreeCookies Facebook page. So please check these out. I appreciate all the love and support. Thank you!

late night crafting

   My BF was representing his school at a music production conference last weekend, and was looking for some of the old business cards I had made him, awhile back. I wanted to update his info, so I offered to make him new cards. It took a little longer, than expected, but this is what I made.

   I used my handy customizable stamp set and knew I wanted to incorporate a stamp from my collection, as well. It took me a minute or two because I thought it would be cool to use one of my hand carved blocks. They were just way too "cutesy." Then, I knew exactly which one to use. 
   BF and I are based out of the SF Bay Area, so I thought the (Golden Gate) Bridge would be perfect. And, it was! I can''t recommend Yellow Owl Workshop, enough. See here, here and here. I love all their awesome products. I am only half way through Print Workshop, and have a ton of bookmarked projects, already. If you haven't seen the book, or any of the projects circulating the internet, you gotta check it out. Not only is there tons of amazing DIY's, but the book is extremely informative. Especially for someone like me, who loves printing by hand.
   The Bridge adds a nice touch, to the cards, and works well since we are also big SF Giants fans. 
   Have you ever made your own business cards before?

500 Days of Summer

 I hope you all are enjoying your summer <3 How has it been? long?

   Where have I been this whole time? The kitchen, mostly. I have also been making TreeCookies like crazy for a little fair I am participating in, soon. Hoping to open my Etsy shoppe around the same time. Seriously, time has FLIED. If you're in the Santa Cruz, CA area on the 28th, come check out TreeCookies, at the "Everything but the Kitchen Sink" booth. There I will be selling with some other crafty ladies. Be back, soon. Promise!

"I got nothin."

   Hi, everyone! OMG-this is an un-posted post, I wrote on March 9, 2009.


   I titled it, "my February stamp suite".. One of my first BIG card projects. Japanese pop art was the inspiration for the cute girl and having a cute saying. That last shot has been my blog banner since I started helloTreecookies. It's almost time to change it up.
   Oh, finished up a business plan, and printed with a cute tree stamp (see here.) I feel really motivated. Ready, and busy..in a great way of course! My January was rejuvenating. How was yours?

Had to share...

   I found this amazing video, over at HonestlyWTF, and just had to share with you. It takes crochet bombing to a whole new level. Isn't artist, Olek, too cute!? I really want to learn to crochet and/or knit sometime. Does anyone find one better than the other?

   I PROMISE to be back, soon! Hope you enjoyed your December. I started Project 365. Check it out HERE. I've made way too many resolutions.. I'm trying to find the right balance for everything (including opening an Etsy shoppe.) Have an awesome week! Love you ALL <3

hearts and hearts, Jo
