:CHRISTMAS CARD

10.19.13

For the last two years I have had some fun making our Christmas cards.  You can see a post about the card we sent in 2011 here.  Last year I designed the card above which was trying to make (what I thought was) a not so subtle nod to the Presidential election.

Earlier this month someone from Louisiana purchased 170 of these!  In addition to being honored and slightly worried that I was contributing to Christmas Creep I was also struck by the thought of 170 people getting something in the mail I designed this year.

That got me thinking about what I do for a living, not about the goofy things I post here, but the fact that I get to do this thousands of times a day, even millions of times a year (Macy’s Fun Facts… yes they call them fun facts too).  I love what I do for a lot of reasons, but reason number one, when I stop to think about it, will always be the small role I get to play in other people’s lives.

So thank you, Jennifer from Baton Rouge, for reminding me! I hope your family and friends enjoy the cards!

Believe it or not one of the most popular posts I have ever had on my site was about  default facebook profile pictures.  It continues to drive traffic to my site over a year later, so I thought I would share some design related facebook cover photos that I have been entertaining myself with recently.  Feel free to use them on your own page!

To my surprise Because of my awesome design skillz I actually sold a handful of the Christmas cards I posted on Zazzle this year.  Due to their success I just posted a Valentine’s Day card in hopes that it will generate some business for my mulu line of products.

Thanks to the sharp-tongued-wit of my friend Alison and the encouragement of her always-entrepreneurial-minded husband Philippe, they gave me the phrase: ‘You are the munch in my butt.’

You can purchase a copy of the Valentine’s Day Card here!
