Greeting Cards

My Career at Shoebox Greetings Cards, Inc at Hallmark Cards started right after graduating from college. I worked at Shoebox for 3 years and then I Freelanced for a variety of Greeting Card Companies. I stopped creating Greeting Cards when I started the Maggie’s Angels portraits, but now I want to create a card line that will compliment my pet portraits. This is a project that I can work on this summer as we travel in our RV across the USA. Here are a few ideas, of what the cards could look like.

My Boys placed Luminaries down the walkway and made the "Adios" very special!

On Sunday February 15th my husband and I hosted a party we called “A Night in Spain”

We belong to a charitable group called “The Salon Group” “. This wonderful group raises money for Scholarships for Seniors in High School who want to go into the field of Art. We gave away $30,000 this year to 4 very lucky teens. It is an amazing group of people that I feel honored to be around. If you would like to see previous years winners please click here. I will post this years winners when the information gets on the web.

Our group gets together at a different members house every month to celebrate art with wonderful food and entertainment. This month it was our turn to have the party. I wanted to showcase my wonderful Spanish culture. My Parents were there to celebrate and helped make this evening special as they charmed everyone and even danced to the wonderful Flamenco music.

We had the privilege of having Juan Olea as our chef, his food is just incredible. We started the night with a variety of Tapas and it lead to an incredible Paella full of seafood and chicken, it was not only visually stunning, but our taste buds could not get enough of it. It was perfect! For desert there were these cakes called the “San Marcos” that were to die for, creamy moist and oh so decadent! All night we served Sangria, Red and white Spanish wines and Cerbeza Estrella (spanish beer). Carmen del Corral, Olea’s wife, helped us serve and kept everything moving seamslessly. It was truly delectiable!

Omar Miguel, “El Niño de la Isla” played the Flamenco guitar. He is truly an amazing talent! The flavor, the feeling and the  technique of his talent mesmerized everyone. He played all night capturing the flavor of Spain by filling the house with music. You can see and hear his talent at his website, http://www.omarmiguel.com

Along with Omar, we had a Flamenco Dancer named Eli, also known as “La Salerita”. She brought some heat to this fiesta. She danced in the traditional Flamenco style, adding the spice that only a Flamenco dancer knows how to do well. She even coaxed me into doing a little dance. I did my best, but I doubt I’ll be staring on Dancing with the Stars  😉

The party turned out fabulous, a good time had by all!

And even making it more special, my boys surprised me by lining our entree way with Luminaries. Creating a magical ADIOS!
