A blog about my thoughts and my love of artwork as it develops. It reflects some of the basic steps that I go through to achieve the artwork which is eventually presented to Spicher and Co, an innovative design firm that manufactures artwork for the trade. The why, what, how, and where are a few of the questions that I attempt to answer as I blog away! This is a tiny window into the life of a painter, and my hope is that my love for life shines through in the objects that I work to create.

House Note Cards
A Blast from the Past
Many years ago back in 1995, my husband and I had thousands of greeting cards printed. It was an exciting time for me, to say the least. I had about 15 designs (I think), and I would take them to shows. I had them placed in Qty of 5 in a little cellophane bag. We would sell them in little sets. I had all sorts of cards--house cards, tea cups, a winter scene (yesterday's post), and even little bras and girdles.
As I said, I found a box of these little goodies and am selling them on Etsy. I have a very limited supply. My Etsy store is KOLENESPICHER so take a look. They are $20 for a package of them, which is a little more than the one winter scene due to the expense of the die-cut.
Look how primitive!!!!
So you can have a sense of the die-cut shape, I have also included a picture of the card standing!
Same shape as the Red one!
They are printed on glossy premium card stock. I think the die-cut feature makes them look high-end. They were really expensive to produce, which is why we only did it one time. As I said in yesterday's blog, I thought they were all gone…I am happy to find some.
We published it under Markol Greetings, which was just Mark and Kolene blended. Isn't that special.
