apak.



Oh gracious. Apak is making it QUITE difficult for me to save any moolah whatsoever. Husband and I have a big move coming up, and are in the process of downsizing from our WAY too big home. But for everything we get rid of, I want to replace it with another print. What's a gal to do?



Here's my solution (Husband will TOTALLY disagree with me, I can already tell). I'm a fan of art, you know it. It's quite obvious. But rather than spending upwards of $50/print, I go the cheap route and buy the greeting card. Of course, I refuse to give them away, b/c no one is worthy of the beauty and it MUST be framed in my living room. Regardless, I have a wall full of framed greeting cards that simply look like mini-prints, and they cost less than $100 for a GREAT effect.



Just my little money-saving tip, so you know. And I do plan on (when I get approval from Husband, that is) purchasing this greeting card for $4 to hang in my wall of fame. SO excited; it's just lovely and so so fun.



Anyway, check out Apak's enormous collection of fabulousness right here. I could fill a wall with these cuties!



[This may be the last post for today, my apologies! I'm working on a super special V-Day surprise for my dear, as y'all should be, too! Get off the puter!!!!!]

I love those cherries - they remind me of those painty colouring books I had when I was a kid - gorgeous.

Thats what i do too! If you buy three greeting cards you still can have a great composition, for a fraction of the price. :)

The hugs picture is the cutest thing I have ever seen! I am in love with your greeting card idea! I have been spending WAY too much on prints lately, and am honestly very very sick of it! I have a feeling there will be a few greeting cards joining my prints very very soon!!!

welcome.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
