I’m even trying greeting cards in Spanish! The one above is my first one…and if you have an idea for another one, let me know and I’ll create it.

One aspect I love about these cards that I make, is that when they are blank on the front, I attach the photo using photo corners. That means that the person who receives the card can pop the photo out when they are done with the card and frame it! My cousin, Jill, liked a shower invitation I designed, and she framed it and placed it in her bathroom: Continue reading

A couple of months ago, after seeing how excited I was about creating cool cards, my Dad said, “She’s definitely a small shop owner!” He went on to say that “You are the daughter, granddaughter, and great granddaughter of small shop owners.” I’m proud to be part of that heritage of coming from a family of blacksmiths. In honor of how may Dad created wrought iron, I created cards and a handy 3-ring binder to celebrate this:

Sharing Art and Increasing Generosity: How To Start An Etsy Shop

20151217-181141-65501113.jpg

Have a quirkly scarf you like to crochet or images you enjoy painting and desire to sell some? Creating an Etsy online shop might be just what you need! Etsy.com lets you create a shop and list your items for minimal fees, so if you are  a tiny business wanting to see if there is a market for your items or an established business desiring to connect with customers all over the world, start an Etsy shop!

Last winter while I mopped the animal hospital where I work part-time, I received inspiration to give some of the profits of my shop to non-profit organizations that help people transition well through life.

In March of 2015 Trees of Transition Art and Design launched into the world market with a couple of paintings, some pressed flower note cards and wall art, and a few other greeting cards. Now my site has grown to include bright nature photography on greeting cards and framed from places like Costa Rica, Michigan, and many other places all over the United States.

Several friends have asked me about how I’ve started this little shop, and now I’ll tell you more… Continue reading

There are over 50 greeting cards, one of the designs are by three-year-old Pearl and her Mom Sunny, so check them out at https://www.etsy.com/shop/TreesofTransitionArt

My nephew liked looking into my card box (and pulling everything out of it). He is one curious boy. He wanted to put the glue stick on his lips (he thought it was chap stick!) So even a one-year-old likes my cards.

I’m proud to announce:

Pearl and Sunny Jonas’ Year of the Sheep cards are up on Etsy (at my Etsy shop–TreesofTransitionArt)!
