I have been known to invest in a hobby, completely immerse myself, then unfortunately loose interest and move onto something else. Knitting, beading, salve making… learning the accordion as a kid – and probably the saddest story about when I begged to take ballet in 1st or 2nd grade. I wanted it more then anything in the world but when I showed up to class in a swimsuit and tube socks instead of the norm leotard and slipper I was shunned and ridiculed by the other little monsters… ehh, children. I dropped ballet that day and never really looked back.
As far as hobbies go, rock climbing has been the most consistent thing in my life. The sport and I have been going steady for about 10 years now. As this point its just about the only thing I have consistently enjoyed as a pastime.
With that being said, well, here we go again. I recently invested some $290 into printing hand drawn greeting cards. I took the doodles to Bishop Art Supply on a whim after making my mother-in-law a thank you card. My co-worker told me I should have a few printed up. She said she thought other people in town would buy them, including herself. She said she always looks for handmade stuff like that.
So with out further ado, here are the first round of Julianna Marina Greeting Cards. All cards are printed right here in Bishop, CA and all cards are personally “hand-glittered” by yours truly.
I’m not planning on this making Phil and I millions or anything but I can honestly say, it’s a really really good feeling when someone finds joy in my little doodles.
I recently set up an Esty shop, so purchase your cards HERE. Otherwise, the cards will hopefully be sold at a couple locations in town. Stay tuned for the second wave of cards, hopefully to include: just because, happy birthday, get well among a few others.
