That Girl Tam....

...is so damn talented!

Look:


The picture simply cannot do it justice, but I wanted to give you a visual. This is my beautiful, intricately detailed, bomb-azz custom stationary, crafted by one fabulous artist and designer - Tamra, via her business Artsy Fartsy Creations. I was totally blown away by the final product, and not because I had any doubt they'd be fabulous (I'd already seen the drafts), but because when I finally received, the detail and workmanship were so much more fabulous up close!


Each card is individually made, and signed by the artist. The detail and care that must have gone into creating each piece is just astounding. And the fact that she turned around my order so quickly was a special bonus. Thanks, Tam! I called her up gushing, as soon as I opened the package.

You can imagine that given my "unique" name, it's impossible to find beautiful, funky, and/or fly notecards just by walking into a store. And I'm always on the hunt for it, because I'm a big-time note-writer. So now, I have an affordable way to have quality custom stationary, created by a talented designer with mad creative vision, who has the highest standard of professionalism, along with a personal touch from start to finish - because it's Artsy Farty's goal to ensure the customer is completely satisfied.

So. I'm about to place my next order this week. And I encourage ya'll to do the same, because her business is really picking up! And once she sends her cards to Oprah and lands on Aunty O's favorite things list, she 'aint gonna have time for ya'll medium-willies. Ha. :)

Really, though. Check out her website to browse all her services, and to place an order. A set of 12 custom made note-cards are $25.00. She will get your input regarding style, colors, fonts, etc., and then leave the rest up to her.

Just ask P, or me - you will NOT be disappointed!!

That's right! So all of us with unique names now have somewhere to turn. :)

These will make great gifts, too. Personalized art is all the rage.

::sniff, sniff::

First of all, (like I mentioned on the phone) when people gush over my work I don't really trip - because for ME, these cards are so simple to put together. But the part that's so thrilling is knowing that OUR visions were able to work together to give you (the customer) a FABULOUS product that YOU are pleased with.

I don't know if anyone caught the EDIT on my last post (from Friday), but P sent a mass email to her co-workers and instantly scored me 6 confirmed orders...in a matter or minutes.

No worries, when I get to Chicago and I'm actually getting camera time, I'mma holla at ALL my blog sistas!!! Hehehe!

Jamal: The paper for your next order has already been cut and is ready for production. You know the drill...holla back with the new font choice!

J, your Blog is FABULOUS! Isn't it amazing how our lives evolve? Who would have thought that two little scrawny, big bootie, pony tailed, talkin' too much, highly motivated and energetic black gals from Inglewood, CA would be where we are today. Our God is Awesome! He puts special people in our lives to encourage us when we are down and motivate us when we seem to have hit a bump in our road called life. I am very proud of all of your accomplishments. We have come a long way Baby! I just hope we both end up on Oprah on the same day. Your writing coupled with my non-profit will send the white man into a complete tizzy! We definitely will get together THIS WEEK and have lunch. We have so much to catch up on, lahugh about, and brainstorm about
