Funny how things happen. I’ve been so happy making robots lately, I haven’t given much thought to greeting cards, my bread and butter for the last 25 years. So when I showed my latest creations to Margie King, Paper Magic Group art director, I wasn’t thinking “Hey! Gimme some work!” It was more like “Here’s why I haven’t been painting lately, and why I’m so much happier!” (Note to self–good motto for new business; Making new friends, one piece of junk at a time”).
And much to my surprise, the lovely and talented Margie said “These are great! Can you make me some Christmas Fobots for cards?”. And once again, I’m back in the greeting card biz.
There are four so far–an angel, some carolers, a reindeer, and, my favorite, Santabot. Looking for a likely Santa body and finding that wonderful Hy-Klas coffee can on Ebay made me smile for days. Could it be more perfect? And after a week of searching for the perfect Santa head, finding that meter (you can’t see it, but the needle goes from red:bad, to green:good) put me into a state of ecstacy for the rest of the week. The cherry on top–FINALLY realizing that just the right padlock would make a great beard. Aaaaaah, sweet. Life is good again.
