Greeting Cards

Yun Jeong Bae

 

A hanging strawberry planter for home last year turned into a happy drawing on a sunny day and ultimately became a beautiful Thank You greeting card on the shelves at Trader Joe's. I always loved to look at the greeting cards section at Trader Joe's, which has many illustrative selections. I am very happy that my designs are part of them.

I also received my Thank You Card samples for this fall 2016 season and they turned out wonderfully with the addition of a lovely quote on the front and inside.

"You bring a smile to my face and happiness to my heart."

I can't wait to send these cards to my loved ones.

Both cards are currently available at Trader Joe's.

Surtex, New Lookbook and The Summer!

Greenmarrow Studio booth at Surtex 2015

After some very busy months preparing for Surtex and recovering from the exhaustion and doing follow-ups in June, the summer is here. Overall, the crowd was smaller at Surtex this year compared to last year, but it seemed like there were more potentially committed clients that visited the show. I was able to spend good amount of time with each client that I met and it was really great to learn their needs and to get some great feedback. The most valuable thing as a second-timer is clarifying my arena, which has given me more focus about what I should do.

My new lookbook was done just before the show and I hope that people liked it. For me, the lookbook always brings me a great memory of shooting photos outside in the spring air (although Chicago still has very cold temperatures) and a souvenir of all of the hard work and fun preparation time.

In addition to the great show, a trip to Montreal directly after Surtex was planned in advance and it was so much rewarding and inspirational. The experience of the beautiful city fueled me with energy and many ideas for my next creations, which is a bonus.

Already half of 2015 is officially gone and I hope that many new and exciting things will happen before the year passes.

 

 

Waiting for the sun in Chicago

Yun Jeong Bae

 

For my 2014 spring look-book, I have been in the process of taking some photos of my patterns. After shooting on one lovely day last Saturday, Chicago has been rainy and cloudy for this whole week and I had to take most of the shots in my house and yard with gloomy weather. I just need one more sunny day for the last a couple of shots.  

But most of the time, I love rainy days so much.
