Merry Christmas!

Hope everyone has a great Christmas! Did you ask Santa what you wanted? Have you left him any cookies? Hopefully, he remembered all of that! Enjoy spending the holiday with your family and friends whether it’s at home or on the road!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

San Jose Holiday Craft Fair/Giveaways/2017 Art Shows

Today, I attended the San Jose Holiday Craft Fair near the Convention Center to find more inspiration and to do some Christmas shopping on the side. Like all the other artist fairs I’ve attended this past year, a lot of them had some creative things to sell to make the best holiday gifts.

However, the one booth that stood out to me the best was a booth called Wood Burn Corner. The artist, Rachel Strauss takes pieces of wood and sketches out different custom-made designs that range from welcome signs for the home, to magnets, and anything else imaginable. Of course, I couldn’t leave without buying one of her creations for a Christmas present because she had one of the best custom-made styles, just like Linda Cullen’s bottle caps.

The best part of it all is that she’s located in my hometown of Fremont, so it’s not too far for me to see her. To return the favor, I gave her one of my business cards so she can keep in touch with me in case she would like to buy one of my cards. Of course, I gave some to other vendors as well, so they wouldn’t feel left out. 

Since the debut of my business cards last month, they’ve been flying out the door like hotcakes, so that people can contact me if they’d like to order cards.

Recently, I gave some to my part-time volunteers, The All Stars Project of the San Francisco Bay Area, and also as a giveaway during the annual Smith Family Christmas Party. 

 

As 2017 comes to a close, I’ve been fascinated by all the art shows I’ve attended this year and I’d like to review them all:

-*Alameda County Fair’s Artist Alley (debut of my card sale)

-Niles Antique Fair

-Mountain View Art & Wine Festival

-Lafayette Art & Wine Festival

-San Carlos Art & Wine Festival

-Pleasanton Harvest Festival Original Art & Craft Show

-San Mateo Harvest Festival Original Art & Craft Show

-San Jose Harvest Festival Original Art & Craft Show

-San Jose Holiday Craft Fair

As 2018 approaches, I plan to continue to visit them and other art shows because in the art world, you never know what you might find!

New Design Arrival

After months of waiting, the new designs for Kevin’s Cards have finally arrived and are currently displayed at my house. They will be uploaded on another page sometime this month or the start of 2018. Plus, they will be turned into the next set of greeting cards along with designs from the past few years.

As mentioned before, all of these cards will have the new logo instead of my actual picture.

With the new designs finally in, these cards will hopefully sell like hotcakes and who knows which one will be the best seller!

New Card Designs

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!

New paintings have been made and will arrive next week. They will also be uploaded in another page sometime either this month or the start of 2018.

These designs will be added to the next set of greeting cards along with previous ones to really sell!

As mentioned before, all of the cards will have the new logo to really make them pop!

With a bunch of designs coming soon, Kevin’s Cards will begin to sky rocket and who knows which painting will sell the best! 

Fun Fact

You may not believe it, but this month marks the one year anniversary of Kevin’s Cards. Although it might seem that it’s the anniversary of the website, it’s actually the anniversary of the actual cards because the website wasn’t ready until June of this year.

During that time, I only had a limited amount of cards and it was based off the God Bless painting after the death of my grandfather, Honesto Tria. Since then, my paintings from the past three years have been made into custom-made cards and a majority of them have been pretty popular.

As 2017 comes to a close and going into 2018, I’ll continue to use the previous designs and also add new ones as well so they can sell like hotcakes! In addition, all of the new cards will have the new logo instead of my actual photo.

With the addition of my new business cards, people can now find my website and also contact me if they plan to purchase more cards to share with their friends and relatives.

Let’s hope that these future cards and the future sales continue to make Kevin’s Cards a success!
