What would Mother’s day be without a special and unique card.  I designed these with Mother’s in mind and I plan to add them to the online store shortly.  But, for all you wonderful Mother’s out there, here’s a taste of the Doodle way to celebrate.

Have a special day.  Happy Mother’s day.

Today is the Valentine’s Day.  The day of love.  The day that cupid’s arrow strikes.  In our greeting card section we have some really cool and super romantic Vintage Valentines cards.  Obviously my doodled valentines have to be my favorites and I thought I would share those with you on this, the day of hearts and roses.

So reach out to the ones you love and next year reach for your favorite Doodle card to relay your message of love.  Have a wonderful Valentine’s day.

So we’ve seen the paisley (and I’ve got lots more to show you), but what you might ask do you do with them.  Well in addition to our daily doodle here’s a glimpse of what my very creative partner at Tjomies Vintage Stationery has done with our paisleys.  All of our paisley cut outs are available on line at the Tjomies site and also through Accessories of old, where Lisa has tons of fun items for sale.  Go check out her online store and take time to visit her amazing blog “A Vintage Dream”.

Day 24 – Paisley in the mix

July 23rd, 2009 No comments

Another Thursday rolls around, so in addition to our Paisley spread, I will throw in 2 more so our Three for Thursday special lives on.  I hope you are all enjoying this as much as I am.   First off this was one of my very first paisley designs,  I needed something as a background for a series of greeting cards and I wanted the paisley look and feel.  It took many attempts to get the layout just right and the dimensions perfect, but the outcome was just fine.

So I took the same Paisley piece and with a little twist & turns came up with a brand new sheet that we have used in all our scrapbooking cutouts.  I have this is a multitude of colors.  If you want to see what we have done with paisley take a peek at the Tjomies Web Site.  Lisa has been a wiz with coming up with unique ways to use paisley

Here’s the same design in a different color and used as the background for one of our gift tags, which you can get to see at the Tjomies website.

Day 4 – Holiday weekend

July 3rd, 2009 No comments

It’s the July 4th weekend and with the holiday falling on a Saturday, we have the luxuary of a Friday off and a much needed long weekend.  I can sleep in and relax.  Lately I have been hard at work on the Tjomies website.   I am adding our new scrapbooking section, after our very successful showing at the “great American Scrap book Convention”.  For that event we created all new paisley hangtags and floral cutouts.  I doodled a set of paisley sheets, which I then scanned and altered the colors.  Then Lisa (my partner in Tjomies) created a series of cutouts, which she embellished with genuine vintage buttons.  All of thes are now on our website.   Here’s a peek at the paisley that I designed.
