I just made my first sale!

Just a little while ago I sold these beauties:

3 Leaves 3 Hearts
Embossed Organic Fall Foliage Cards (set of 3)

I will be making more of these! Just as soon as my hand recovers... last night my hand wound up smack in the middle of the large and powerful set of jaws belonging to the Baronnes von Roughenhausen. It was an accident while playing her favorite game. I went to throw, she went to catch. It hurt like you wouldn't believe. I have two puncture wounds, one on the palm of my right hand where my thumb meets my wrist (prime area for paper pressing) and the other on the knuckle of my ring finger. Newfssance was sorry and immediately came to lick the tears from my face, then laid down in her sitting pretty, perfect Newfoundland pose.

I finally wrote a shop announcement too:

Love the earth?
Me too.

My passion for primates led me to study them and in doing so, I learned of their precarious position on earth. So many are endangered because their habitat is being destroyed everyday. That's why I make green gifts.

I specialize in two things: monkeys & handmade paper.
I make boxes, cards, and bookmarks from cereal boxes, junk mail and newspaper inserts with some flower petals, leaves, glitter, and post-consumer yarn thrown in.

Monkeys are not made from 100% post-consumer material, but your purchase of them helps fund organizations like the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and the Jane Goodall Institute.

When you buy from me, you are supporting a sustainable planet.

Karine, I like them all! Oink. But I really love the one you had up on Oct 16. I'd love to see you do a postcard set of all your green and blue paintings. I love those colors together :-)
