'Tis the Season

One of our first cards, "First Snow"; Inside: "Memories, Keep you Warm in the Coldest of Seasons"
  While this photo was taken a couple of years ago, this past weekend we experienced the first snow of the season!
Hi Everyone, Shannon here.  While Phil has all kinds of "Up North" blog material in mind (he'll be back soon), I've been busy crafting a new Web Site, creating a new line of prints (11x14), finishing up our Christmas Card offering, creating a 2013 Calendar, keeping our Facebook status updated, and attending local Arts & Crafts Shows... Whew! It has been truly a delight to be living out the tag line on our products: "Sharing our love of 'Up North' in words and photos."  In addition, it has been a thrill to hear why someone is purchasing a particular card, print or calendar.  Many of the cards and prints being sold are heading downstate, out of state, or...even out of the country!  Indeed, the two simple words, "Up North" can bring up memories, emotions and experiences that transport people back to a place of simplicty and beauty. Something we indeed feel honored and priviledged to share with you via our blog, facebook page and products.

I'm continuing work on a page to display our new "yet to be named" 11x14 prints but wanted to let you get a peek at our 2012 Christmas Cards and a new hot seller: our 2013 'Up North' calendar.  We would love to help you with your Holiday Shopping.  Simply give us a call or drop us a line (10x20 prints and 12x12 prints have been popular gifts at the recent Arts & Crafts sure to take a peek at each page on the side bar.)  If you are local, we would love to meet you at one of the upcoming area Arts & Crafts events; for a listing of locations, times and dates, see the side bar link. A sincere 'thank you' for your continued support of our area inspired, fun family venture.

All the Best,
Shannon & Phil
