Holiday cards

I have been asked to be a participating artist
in a collection of greeting cards.
The Bird Sings is a retail store in my city
with a card line.

I have two Holiday cards available.


Wholesale orders are being filled first
with a few on the rack in the shop.

I also have a birthday card collection.
It will be available in a few weeks.
You can get a sneak preview at The Bird Sings.
Click on "Birthday Cards" my collection comes right up.
I am very excited and very grateful.
The owners of The Bird Sings are kind and respectful people.
My photographs are in good hands.
Mr. Cardinal is singing a song of Peace.
Wee Snowman is sending Joy.
I have a new career!

What can I possibly add that everyone has said? And so well too.
I am happy happy happy for you!
You deserve this wonderful opportunity. How nice to be doing something you love. And sharing your awesome gifts with the world. You go girl!!

Q said...

Dear Marmee,
It is delicious to live and work one's passsion. I love the plants and the birds and the bugs, always have. When I began photography it was the next natural step. Once I taught my camera to see what I saw I was able to share my love of the natural world. It is not sweeping awesome landscapes I see....I see plants and bugs and birds. These are my friends in the backyard. I have a relationship with all these creatures!
(I even have a relationship with a dress form and a hat form! I have just recently fallen in love with wool. Learning the language of wool is very interesting. That is another story!)...
Thank you for sharing the love of nature.
I think all the cards are being sold as boxed sets or collections right now. There are three other artists with cards. I know Tim is filling wholesale orders right now. The Holiday cards are also sold in the shop. The birthday cards will be in the racks in a couple of weeks. They are still at the print shop.
I think it is very important to hold fast to one's dreams. They can and do come true.
All my relations,
Sherry

Q said...

Dear Mel,
So good to hear from you!
Hope Master's program is going well.
I will pop over and visit.
Namaste,
Sherry

Q said...

Dear Wendy,
I am honored to have so many kind and loving friends. Thank you!
Maybe someone will get a card with a butterfly or a bird and they will notice the beauty in their backyard! They will see that nature is so lovely, so beautiful that they too will want to take care of her.
Thank you for being so very supportive.
Namaste,
Sherry

Michelle said...

Hi Sherry,
Thank you for popping by my blog. I have heard lots about you from mum, I know that you are her very special beautiful friend. She has been keeping updated all about your photos being made into cards. How fantastic they are. You must be very proud of your achievements, they are truly stunning - congratulations and very well deserved.
with love,
Michelle

Chris said...

Good luck with your new career, Sherry :-). Your card stand looks brilliant!

Q said...

Dear Michelle,
I was so pleased to learn of your blog and to see all of your fantastic art projects.
You are talented! I send much success to you!
I consider your Mother one of my best of friends. We understand each other... perhaps it is the love of the bee or the knowing that all is connected...what ever the reason I do love her dearly.
The cards are delightful. It is a dream come true. My part is to take the photographs. Tim, the owner of The Bird Sings does everything else. Such a joy to be in business, in art and in Mother Nature's arms.
Thank you for your kind wishes.
Namaste,
Sherry

Q said...

Congratulations! It is wonderful that a lot of people can enjoy now your artistic photographs. You are an artist, dear Sherry, and I do hope that you will sell a lot of these outstanding and beautiful cards.

Q said...

Dear Barbara,
Thank you. It is exciting.
I think about what photographs would make a good card when I am working with the birds.
Putting on the Artist cap is new and fun for me. It is exciting to have this second career!
