Going green... I spotted these earth-friendly cards while on a recruiting trip a few weeks back. Check out more of Compendium's cards, hang tags, invitations, books, and journals. Fun stuff with inspiring messages and reminders of the good things in life.

Every other month I host an Artist Trading Card (ATC) trade at Hallmark.
ATCS are 2.5 x 3.5 inch miniature works of art which artists trade with one another. It's a fun exercise to do and get off the computer and make some art! There are so many talented people here at Hallmark. You never know that a writer can illustrate or a photographer can sew!
I've been having the trades for almost 2 years now. It started with some co-workers on my team and then word got around and folks from different departments come out to trade.
This month the theme for the trade was "go green." Everyone went GREEN and used recycled materials to make their ATCs. Here are some cards form the trade.
You can see more at my other blog.

I'm moving to another design team Monday so today was my last day on my current team. They got me cupcakes to send me off (I'll be super far away in another building). I just adored the strawberry cupcakes and how ironic they matched my shirt!

I got cre•a•tive and made a new blog header.
This is the first one I did.
First I had cut out letters by hand from various pages of a magazine. It looked cool, but not legible for the blog. I may keep it for something else.

I went to Magazines and Coffee (1722 Main Street) in the Crossroads and the space was empty... CLOSED! Say it ain't so! It was the perfect place to get signature espresso drinks, some food and a very wide variety of magazines.

I’m Jeanee, guest blogger. I’ll be blogging about what’s going on around Kansas City, cool stuff I may run across and whatever else seems to be cre•a•tive.
No, I’m not from the South. But I say y’all quite a bit. I received my BA in journalism from Michigan State in 1997. I worked for a while as a web designer. Then I went back to school in 2003 to Portfolio Center in Atlanta, GA. Hallmark found me after I graduated and I started in greetings design fall of 2005.
I’ve had the awesome opportunity to be in a lot of departments and special projects at Hallmark. Now I’ve just added CRE•A•TIV•I•TY to my list! I have three personal blogs and now two Hallmark blogs. What can I say… I love to share. SHARING IS CARING!

I love this website and I pray that we'll get a Sprinkles Cupcakes in Kansas City. Some people pray for way more important things- good health, success, love. I pray for cupcakes. Whatever gets you through the day. Go to the website and vote for the Kansas City location. www.sprinklescupcakes.com.

Amazing black and white photography. Though somewhat melancholy, Chris Honeysett creates some very thought-provoking and inspiring imagery. If you are in Kansas City in the fall, you might catch Chris at the annual Plaza Art Fair.
