I follow a lot of quilters on Instagram because I can't resist a good quilt, so imagine my delight when Cindy Wiens of Live a Colorful Life reached out to me about my cards. After several emails and a lot of ideas exchanged, I finished a set of notecards this spring based on her beautiful Delta Breeze design that are now for sale in my Etsy shop. Working together with Cindy was truly a breath of fresh air!
The hardest thing for me about designing my own paper goods is working alone from start to finish, with most of my design and proofing process on the computer screen. I am always second-guessing myself, hoping that the final product is actually as vibrant and fun as the original image that I started with in my head. But designing these cards with some back and forth with Cindy was a real pleasure. I waited eagerly to hear her feedback when I sent her the final printed cards and was relieved when she was even more excited and happy with them I had hoped.
