Show Us Your Life – What you make/sell

I shared a few weeks ago about my shop, Tales of a Peanut, and today am linking up with Kelly’s Korner to talk about it again.

I design many paper and personalized items in my shop.  I design all final items but sometimes use commercially created graphics, especially in children’s products that require more of a specific character (think princesses or super hero’s).  I love a handwritten note and I especially love one on beautiful paper and so my inspiration to start this business was born out of that.  I create personal stationery, invitations, name cards as well as designing items for kids like placemats, melamine plates and platters, and stickers.  Below are some of my products and some special notes about them.

Folded Quaterfoil Note Cards

These were ordered by a friend.  She combined two designs that I already had into one to create a folded notecard that was just what she wanted.

Watercolor Border Flat Notecards

These flat notecards leave plenty of room to write, but the watercolor border give them a little extra pop.

Ornaments Together Web

We get Christmas ornaments with our Christmas card picture on it every year and I’ve also started getting them with our pictures with Santa.  We’ll have a tree full of family memories soon!

Art Party Invite

A friend was planning an art party for her daughter and asked me to create an invitation for her.  She loved the way this turned out and I was able to rush order them for her so that she could order them on Thursday and have them in her child’s friends backpacks on Tuesday!

Bea Bee

This customer wanted a bee graphic on these name cards for her granddaughter and I didn’t have one…so I created one! I think she’s pretty cute!

Christmas Gift Tags Chevron Web

Perfect for sticking on gifts of all kind, these gift stickers can be personalized or I have a few sets available that are blank.

Yvette Fill in the Blank

We can add fill in the blank wording on any flat notecards to help children get in the routine of writing thank you notes without making it very trying for the parents who have to do the writing.  I usually leave the backs of these kinds of cards white so that children who can’t write can draw a picture for the recipient on the back!

I love creating Christmas cards and have a variety of designs in the shop available for customization (you can change color, text, picture arrangement, etc).  But my absolute favorite is when you send me a picture (or pictures) and let me play with designs to get you an entirely personalized card.  New designs such as these will be added to the shop the next Christmas, but you will be the only one with a card of that design this year!
