No one does collage (in this case shown on greeting cards) quite like Curly Girl Design – and since Leigh Standley’s work is one-of-a-kind (dare I say like most moms?), no one has been able to imitate it with any success. I have blogged about the freewheeling optimism & spunky humor that runs through it before, but it is the distinctive mixture of Leigh’s wise take on life with her homey collages that make the final product so special. Fortunately for all of us Leigh keeps on introducing more amazingness.
Anyhoo, I have two mother-rific designs today that any mom would be thrilled to receive. I’ll let them speak for themselves, and the more you look, the more you see. Available here for $3.95.
This giraffe card speaks equally well to a new mom at a baby shower as a not-so-new mom on Mother’s Day. Take it from me, we all like (and need) to be reminded of this once in a while! Available here for $3.95.
Leigh’s designs are not just on cards (though they did start out that way), she’s added all sorts of gifts to the equation. So the giraffe image is available on a mug, a wristlet, a candle, an art block and a canvas, $12-300. Meanwhile the mom image is on a mini votive candle ($4) and a magnet ($4.50). So there’s something for every budget and every mom’s lifestyle. Go ahead, I dare you: Peruse her site and just try not to fall in love.
