new plan

So I have decided to set a plan in action to get more of my work out there for people to see. My plan is to make cards for all occasions this year (at least) whether it be a baby shower, a birthday or mothers day, everything will be handmade by yours truly. This was partially inspired by a new book I got about printing by hand, partially by my grandma but mostly just because it's fun! I think that letter/card writing was one of my first creative outlets and it is sadly becoming a lost art. I always enjoyed making cards to send to people and it is one of the reasons I started sonrisa creative.

Also, a few years ago when my grandmother passed away my family was cleaning out her stuff and found a box of letters that i had sent her over the years. This made me realize how much even the littlest thing can mean to someone. So this has caused me to make that little extra effort for every celebration/event or just because. So my apologies to those of you who's bday's have already passed this year (I'll catch you next year, promise). From here on out it's handmade all the way in honor of my grandma.

So here is the first of many posts to come about handmade cards. This one I made to send to some family members who have been going through a rough patch. I hope the little extra effort shows them that I care.

fantastic flickr

If you still haven't gotten your fill of sonrisa check me out on flickr!

I have posted a collection of images from then and now. I would say they are my favorite, but then again they are all my favorite.
