designs from the pressure cooker

In 10 days I will present my new and old stuff at the ShowUP trade fair here in the Netherlands again. It feels like being in a pressure cooker at the moment.

Last week I decided to skip one of my new designs because of the costs: a beautiful tray, made in Sweden (see photo of a sample together with my Ode cup). Reason: the consumer price would become too high for my target group! 
So I needed a back-up plan.

My friend Linda Lammerts recently mentioned in passing that good old simple greeting cards would be such a nice match with my designs. So funny, although I am 'Mrs Paper', the idea of designing greeting cards never occurred to me! Thanks Lin, for waking me up!

I started last Friday, worked all weekend, and I just sent the greeting card files to the printer's. On the above photo the sketch looks a little pink, but in reality it's more camel. It's going to be printed on beautiful 400 gr. Olin paper, one of my favorites!

In short: I will still be rather busy the coming weeks, but for now I can let some steam out!
