Hunkering down before Ike

Well, the title says it all. Here in Georgetown as in almost all of Texas, we've gassed our cars, bought the batteries and stocked up in non-perishable food. Now we just wait for Ike. At this time it looks like central Texas will get off easy. We remain open and anticipate having regular hours for tomorrow. We hope for all our friends and family in Houston that the hurricane does little damage.

While the electricity is still on for everybody, I've got a wonderful website to look at. Shannon Lowery, from Austin, designs and makes greeting cards. Her business, Round Robin Press, has been making quite a splash with her plantable cards.

Embedded with wildflower seed or letterpressed basil and chives, these cheery bird images are perfect for saying hello to a friend or family. Imagine the recipient can plant the entire card (so easy) and then when it grows they will think of you. It's a gift of love in a small envelope.

She also designs a "back and forth" card. Send it to a friend with your message, and she can send it back to you with her own message or send it forth to another friend. Neat idea! Enjoy exploring her website. Check out her blog. Or come in to Annarella and see some.

Keep snug this weekend.
