Some Early Attempts at Design

As I've previously mentioned, my mom has a tendency to hold on to things.  There is an obvious down side to this, but the up side is that I keep finding great clothes and magazines from the sixties and seventies.  And yesterday I found what must have been my first attempts at stationery and greeting card design.  These first two images are from a stationery set I created for my mom.  I realize now that I misspelled her name.

This next one was also a stationery design:

Here are some holiday ideas:

And a complete holiday card:

I even had my own company logo.  I feel like the symbol on the card might have been similar to Carlton Cards old logo- or maybe Hallmark?   I can't remember, but I'm sure I must've been looking at something for reference.

It was strange seeing all of these again.  I had completely forgotten about them, but once I saw them I instantly recognized them and remembered working on them as a child.  It brought back such great memories!  I'm going to have to stop giving my mom such a hard time about holding on to things!
