Featuring: vanessakimball

I'm excited about my feature today! This is one of my favourite stationary / paper goods store. I just love vanessakimball! Check out her holiday special: mix and match cards. Mix and match four cards for $6. It isn't too late ~ you have until December 15... after that, she can't guarantee that you'll get your order before the holidays.

This beautiful reindeer card is my favourite. The bright red of the envelope is sure to brighten anyone's day ~ who doesn't love getting something in the mail? This sprightly little guy is red checkers on a lovely white printed paper. Simply stunning.

Speaking of stunning, this card is sure to be part of the four in your mix and match order! All is calm ~ a classic line from a classic Christmas carol... and I think this card embodies the phrase quite nicely. A quiet snowfall, the lone chickadee sleeping on the bare branches of the oak tree... I can almost smell the hot chocolate and fresh baked cookies...

While shopping for cards, check out this pretty green grass one. While note technically a holiday card, this simple, versatile design could serve many purposes. I think the best would be just to say hi. Who wouldn't love that?

Vanessakimball is a graphic designer for a design company called Ekcetera Productions. Other than her Etsy shop, you can find her stationary at their new store called Ekcetera, in Inver Grove Heights, MN. You know, if you ever happen to be around there. Feel free to send her a convo, and ask about custom work if you have anything in mind.

You can get a nice sample of vanessakimball designs in her 2008 calendar. If you hurry, you'll be able to get it before the first of the month. The green grass design in the card above can be seen for the month of July... and the best month, August (my birthday month), has a darling graphic ~ a cute little blue bird in a swirling green tree. November's brown pinecone and January's bright snowflake designs are also my favourites, although really, they're all gorgeous!! I want one... but... I really wish I hadn't already purchased a 2008 calendar online from the Pioneer Woman (well, I'm glad I did, it's going to be lovely) ... and already had a new one hanging behind my old 2007 calendar. Oops. I guess 2 is enough. But, by all means, feel free to go ahead and buy me one!!! :)

You should definitely check out this shop and mark vanessakimball as a favourite so you can go back whenever you might need some paper goods. And do check out her blog in support of us 90 day challenge bloggers!
