thank you notes

While writing this post, I was debating on what to use as a “title”. You know, something discreet and diplomatic despite the fact that this project has taken almost two years to finally come to fruition. I mean, publication. So minus any flattering [insert sarcasm here] remarks I could say about the authors and publishing company, I present to you … Thank You Notes: 40 Handmade Ways to Show You’re Grateful … now available on!

It’s the second book published by Hollan and Lark Books that I have several greeting card designs in. The first one was “Love Notes: 40 Exquisite Handmade Cards to Express Your Love” which was released back in January of 2008.

The concept of Thank You Notes came up soon after Love Notes was [finally] published as a way of continuing step-by-step do-it-yourself types of crafting books. Unfortunately, we ran into some trouble with Hollan Publishing going out of business. Then the “wait-and-see” game began with Lark soon thereafter on whether the second book would be released at all, despite all of the work that had already gone into the collecting of the designs and the shipping back and forth of supplies, instructions, and staged demos. Drama I tell you, pure drama.

Alas. It is finally here.

I can’t wait to get my hands on it to see if it turned out as good as Love Notes. I am a little bit disappointed that it is being released in paperback format instead of hard cover, but that makes it less expensive which is a plus. I’ll have to give you a review when it finally arrives!

P.S. That’s one of my designs on the front cover. Sa-weet. 🙂
