Oh boy. I'm in trouble.

As many of you know, I'm not only working full-time but I'm taking night classes for the graphic design program that I'm enrolled in.

Right now, I'm working hard on a BIG project for my typography class. This is a semester-long project. We had to pick a theme and start collecting typography samples on that topic. (We should've been collecting since day one of this course.) Later, we'll be compiling them into some sort of creative journal format. I had absolutely no clue what I wanted to work on, so I arbitrarily picked something. I recently decided that I hated my theme, and didn't want to work on it.

I decided it would be much more fun and interesting to collect business cards from other creative people (ie: illustrators, designers, and craftspeople). I e-mailed my professor about it this week. I received an e-mail back saying that would be ok, but that I should've been collecting all semester...and that I'm going to need hundreds of business cards.

Yowza!!!

Ouch. I'm still dedicated to this project, but I desperately need your help. If you're an artist, illustrator, graphic designer, or crafts person (or know someone who is) please please please send me your business cards!!! If you read yesterday's blog, you'll know I even have a contest running right now for people who get their cards to be before March 18th.

Some folks have been asking if it's ok to just e-mail me a digital file of their business card, and the answer is YES!!! It's totally fine. I just got a professional-grade printer this week, so your cards will print up beautifully on my end. Just send 'em. If you want to go the snail-mail route and need an address, just e-mail me at honeydewstudio@gmail.com and I'll happily send it to you. You can also send me your digital files at the above e-mail address.

Lastly, I would like to say a very big THANK YOU to those who already responded to this request. You guys have been fabulous and so generous with your help and support. I can't wait to open my mailbox later this week. *Hugs*. Keep 'em coming!!!

Thank you so much!!! (o:

Typography has been interesting so far. After the first class, I was convinced I'd never "get it" but I've slowly been progressing. Hopefully this project will be a success!
