Those who’ve known me for a while know that once upon a time I had a couple of Etsy shops, one of which was Wide Sarcasm Sea. What began as a request by a good friend to design cheeky little note cards of appreciation and morale boosting for her teachers and co-workers morphed into an Etsy shop of cards, notepads, and other stationery gift items.
To this day, that was one of my favorite projects. It hit a sweet spot with me of being creative and irreverent to make people’s days brighter. So as I get going with Organize + Amuse, I’ve decided to rework and bring back some of those designs. This time, however, I plan to upload my designs to Cafe Press and let them take care of production, rather than get bogged down in the production of items at home.
The O+A shopfront at Cafe Press isn’t much to look at right now, but I’ll work on that as I continue to add new designs. In the meantime, here are the first two designs I’ve added:
I created this “Dude, You Rock” card seven years ago and I still love it. It works for co-workers, friends, family, or anyone you want to show appreciation for or give thanks to. You can click on the image above to read the inside and/or to order one (or a pack of 10!)
I designed this “love” card a year or two after I opened Wide Sarcasm Sea. I have ideas to create a series of cards along this line of “Even when you…” A card like this one is timeless because at some point in life, we’ve all been left stranded like this, am I right? Again, click on the image to see the inside or order one.
As far as future designs and products, CafePress has a large selection of products that I can upload designs for, but I like things simple, so I won’t be making designs available for a ton of products. However, I will entertain requests and suggestions from you all, so if there’s something you’d like to see on a notebook or a magnet or whatever, leave me a comment and I’ll see what I can do.
