State of the House – May 2024

Things are clicking along nicely at Copper House North. I’ve finished creating the Christmas greeting card collection, which will include 8 new designs for the holidays. The berries above are a snippet of one, plus the gingerbread cookies below (albeit a bite might be missing from them!). Who can resist

A Favorite Nighttime Ritual

In April we still have cool nights where there’s nothing better than lighting a fragrant candle and writing in a journal. The yellow flicker of the flame is calming and conducive to getting a good night’s sleep. Writing down the things you’re grateful for, or processing feelings on paper, sets you

Send Them

In 2016, I downloaded several books by artist and designer Kate Harper. It was the first year I dove into digital drawing, and the first year I had ever made greeting cards…all 4 of them. In hindsight, my design ideas were good but I still had more work to do

There are now five designs in the Christmas card collection. Somewhere between 10 and 12 would be a wonderful number to reach, but we’ll have to wait and see! We visited family at their new home in north Georgia recently. They have a wide spread of trees behind the house

Christmas in April

It’s official – I’ve begun creating art for the 2024 Christmas season! It’s wild to say at the beginning of spring, but I’d like to get ahead for retailers who shop for Christmas products during the summer.  I’m dedicating the month of April to this work, with no preconceived ideas

First Retail Order Sent Out

On Friday I mailed out the first retail order for Copper House North. I’ve always celebrated the “firsts” in business and was so happy to package the order. It included two greeting cards: one a retro-style design with the hand-lettered message to “keep going”, the other a floral, vintage-style thank

Cards in the Shop. A Glimpse of Cabo.

Isn’t it wonderful to have friends who are like family? I’m thankful for a handful of them in my life. People I can open up to about any subject and know they’re going to listen with empathy, and provide clarity when I need it. That was the sentiment behind creating

First Inventory Shipment of Greeting Cards

I just received the first shipment of greeting cards that I’ll keep in inventory for Copper House North and it made my heart sing. 180 cards, 18 from-the-heart designs. (As I type this, I’m struck by the number “8”. It’s my favorite and always seems to find me wherever I
