the “i heart Cape Breton” postcards are here!


Prototypes back in January of this year.

You guys!!

I am so proud to announce that my first design product is a reality.

Back in January I made a prototype of a postcard with “I heart Cape Breton” on it. I showed the above picture on Facebook and got a bunch of positive feedback, including from Caitlyn Purcell of the gift shop Salty Rose’s Local Art & Craft in Ingonish, who offered to sell them in her shop this summer.

I jumped at the chance. I designed two other looks and ordered a quantity of each from When they arrived it was better than Christmas, opening up those packages, checking out the finished product. They are beautiful – thick, glossy and the colour is so bright and bold!

Salty Rose’s opens tomorrow. My cards are in her shop. $2.50 apiece or three for $6. I am so excited about this!!

I don’t have anywhere else right now that I’m selling them, and I’m still crunching the numbers on selling them mail-order. If there is enough interest then I will, so get in touch with me if you’d like to order some. And if you have a store and are interested in carrying the cards, just get in touch with me, too!

    I love the cards. I hope you find somewhere in Baddeck to sell them so I can buy some when we sail in this summer. How about the yarn shop? Then I can kill two birds with one stone buy yarn and buy cards!
