I’m delighted to announce that my Sparks of Grace project has gotten off to a great start and is going strong. Postcard sales have been excellent and have been generating nice proceeds for the cause I support, the development of hospice/palliative care in my area.
A new holiday card is now available that celebrates the joy of taking time for the simple things this Christmas. It sells in sets of five for $10.
I’ve really enjoyed creating my set of four seasonally inspired notecards, which I call the Four Seasons Collection. These will sell in mixed sets of four for $9.I have also designed a thank you card and a “thinking of you” card. These will also sell in sets of five for $10.
There was a wonderful feature on Sparks of Grace in the October issue of the regional arts newspaper, the Humm, which explains what motivated this project. It has really helped to spread the word.
My project has also been profiled on two websites — that of artist/writer Indigo Janson, and photographer Diane Schuller, who loved the idea of the project upon hearing of it through the Internet. I blushed when I read what they had to say, but I am very appreciative of their words.
I would like to thank all those of you who have shared with me sweet comments about the postcards, which have been making people smile across Canada and even in the United States. Here’s an example:
These cards are amazing – I was given a set for my birthday – and plan to send a couple of them out to my sisters. Thank you for your gift of creativity and flow of grace…
I will be selling the complete Sparks of Grace line locally at the Handmade Harvest in Almonte on November 4 at the Almonte Town Hall. I attended this event last year as a happy buyer, and I am excited to be part of it this year as a vendor. The quality of goods is exceptional and the atmosphere is festive and fun.
I will be making my donation to the Hub in November after the Handmade Harvest sale.
Let’s ignite more sparks of grace together!
