    i’d love to see you do some cards. “kindess found me”, “heart pulp” and “to the brim” are amongst my faves although it’s hard to narrow it down!

    i am heading there right this minute.
    way to march forth dearest friend of mine.
    i wish i knew a great marching song right off the top of my head, but my brain isn.t quite working yet.
    if i did…i would sing it at the top of my lungs to you dear rachel.
    (marching as i did it of course.)
    HUGE etsy hugs to you today.

    Rachel, Congratulations on your Marching Forth March 4th opening–Yeah! (Horn Tooting here)
    I saw your comment on Amy’s MISSion blog–What a special moment and beautiful day in your family’s life.

    For a marching song, since Chrissy mentioned it, I posted this song to Amy’s MISSion blog: Here Comes The Big Parade by Harry Connick Jr.
    A very happy, get moving and smiling song!

    i now call it the Etsy plunge!!!!

  21. I Am Write says:

    Happy “Birth” day Rachel! Thank you for opening your Awe-someness to the world! Oh, and yes – I would love to see the cards on Etsy, especially “to the brim” “heart pulp” “what do you love?” and the one about forming soft balls of forgiveness. I would buy a variety pack too. Thanks for the inspiration my dear crocus bursting through Snow.

  22. Suvarna says:

    congratulations, wish you lots of success!

  23. aimee says:

    triple YAY!!!

  24. Lori says:

    Yay! Yay! Yay! You will be a rocking success!

  25. this is fantastic! the shop looks wonderful. bravo!

  26. rdn says:

    I too would like to see cards, and the idea of a variety pack is very appealing. I really like your work and I need every one of the messages on them. I have a box of cards to have handy for any occasion but yours would not survive long in my box – I’d send them all out right away (if I could bare to part with them, I mean.)

  27. Yay! Can’t wait to check it out!
