I’m thrilled to introduce you all to Barnabas Notes

New business, new logo

This new creative outlet sells greeting cards featuring nature photography that I’ve taken over the years paired with Bible verses.

I’ll be releasing new card designs every week – Puddles features in about a quarter and he is joined by other wildlife, flora, and landscapes.

When God gave me the idea, this was the picture He first placed in mind to use. Taken up in Canada after a rough treatment when I wandered through the silent woods, He graced me with a beautiful sunset and filled me with His peace.

Each photo brings with it a memory of the gift God painted before my eyes.  So below the images you can read a little bit about the inspiration.

I still remember the day Puddles stick went in the lake and he determined to beat his fear and go after it!

Given my eco background, each card is available on 5 different paper types… 2 eco, 2 regular, and 1 digital.

Eco cards come with a craft paper envelope, standard cards with a white envelope. I use 2 different print houses that each drops ship directly to you to keep it allergy-friendly for me.

I can see the head scratches now… what’s with that name and why not Eco Cards or something more in line with Knit Eco Chic.  Well, there is a great story behind the name!  If you aren’t familiar with the historical figure Barnabas, he was known as “the son of encouragement” in the Bible.  Thus, the inspiration behind the name – notes of encouragement with beautiful (or funny) nature images.  You do know how I love my puns and names that express significance! 

At this time, shop sales are restricted to the US.  (If the store makes a go of it, I hope to hire a Shopify expert to help me figure out international taxes and shipping.)

I hope these cards bless you and those you send them to!

Just as a reminder, Knit Eco Chic is here to stay!  As I wrote on the Easy One blog, some of the health effects I’ve been dealing with have made grading and complex pattern designing very difficult.  So, no, I’m not quitting designing, but yes, I am expanding into another craft that doesn’t require the extensive math and calculation inherent with designing.
