Writing in the cards from the Sunshine Collection

Writing in the cards from the Sunshine Collection

If you've landed hear you've probably picked up one of the gleaming designs from the Sunshine Collection and are on the hunt for more inspiration!

Rachel (the illustrator) and I spent time discussing the pervasive and heartening nature of joy when we first discussed collaborating. It is my hope that you feel this eternal warmth as you use this card.

This page contains a combination of notes and quotes... I am always nurturing new ideas for these pages, so make sure you come back to view the latest updates!
