New Cards for Spring!

I'm excited to share two brand new cards in the Vitamini line! First up, inspired by my trip to Ireland last fall, the Sláinte! card. Sláinte! (pronounced slahn-cha) is a traditional Irish blessing - say it to your loved ones over a pint of Guiness to wish them good health! The illustration features a rocky hillside castle (complete with sheep!), a shamrock, a creamy pint of Guiness, and some neolithic swirls. A prefect greeting for St. Paddy's Day or any other day when you want to send a little luck of the Irish through the post. Find the Sláinte! card in the shop here.

Mother's Day is coming up! Sweet and simple, this card features a blooming Morning Glory vine with deep green heart-shaped leaves. Find the Floral Mother's Day card in the shop here.

As always, all of the Vitamini greeting cards are hand screen printed in the Monterey Bay with eco-friendly water based inks on premium French Paper - an American paper company operating on hydro-electric power since 1922! How cool is that?

new year, new blog

Tap tap, is this thing on? Hello, friends! It's been a while since I wrote a blog post, and while my lifestyle has shifted me away from my beloved but labor intensive DIY projects, I really missed sharing with you, internet pals! So here I am, with a brand new blog page! My old blog, Vitamini Handmade will live as an archive for all of those projects..they're all still pretty cool and relevant, if you ask me... ;) Anyway! My aim for this blog is to share stuff that I think is cool and interesting. Things I like that I think you'll like, too!

Over the Christmas/New Years break, I worked on two felt animal patterns from Cynthia Treen: Rilla Raccoon and the Donkey. They're 100% hand stitched with embroidery floss. The patterns are detailed and would be reasonable for anyone with a bit of stitching experience. My Raccoon came out SO adorable. The donkey came out great, too, but now needs some repairs after Baci stole her off of my shelf. If you're looking for a fun project, check out Cynthia's patterns! Here's my Rilla:
