The Storybooks Have Arrived!!

Welcome to Carrot Condo! My Storybooks You Can Color are linked here as well as my Cards You Can Color. If you’ve been following my blog, All But The Kitchen Sink, you know this has been an exciting process, and this website feels like the last step in making it all real!

As of today, three of four storybooks are printed, and a set of four flower cards are ready to go. They’re printed on bright, white paper called “music paper,” which handles pens, crayons, and colored pencils without bleeding through to the other side.

I will open my Etsy shop in early October, and I’ve applied to the Crafty Wonderland “2015 Super Colossal Holiday Sale” in December. My shop and business are called “Carrot Condo,” which is short for “Views From The Carrot Condo.”

Copyright 2015The name comes from a raised bed in our backyard that we use to grow vegetables. When we first moved to our house, a fancy hot tub stood there. Everyone said we’d love having a hot tub, but we gave it to a friend and planted a big box of dirt instead. Thinking this was a pretty fancy way to grow veggies, we started calling it the Carrot Condo.

It seemed like a good business name, like my drawings are what the carrots see when they peek out of their fancy garden box:

I’ll be posting more here soon. I want to tell you more about the print shop I’m using and the things I’ve learned in the process. I also want your opinion about upcoming projects. So, stay tuned, and thank you for all of your support and enthusiasm.
