New photographs of my cards

I've been working on improving the way my cards are presented on the front page of my shop.
I decided to use an easel and some colorful background.

My etsy shop looks better now :-)

Changes in my etsy shop

I dream of having a card shop.

That's why in my rusticbynature etsy shop I will now focus on 3 kinds of handmade cards:

1. Pressed flower cards - I love working woth all sorts of plants I collect in Europe and NM
2. Photo cards - I use my husband's photography.
3. Recycled cards- I reuse discarded materials to create unique and 'green' cards

In future, I plan to open another shop that will feature Jaime's photography.

My come back to pressing flowers :)

Are you into manholes? ;-)

Do you pay attention to manholes? Do you notice them at all?
Think of different cities, different countries- this is art!

The one above belongs to the Duke City!
I really like this cool (and rustic!) image!
If you'd like a print, a set of cards, a keychain or a magnet containg this Albuquerque manhole, drop me a line and I will prepare a listing for you in my etsy shop :)
