With my new business cards. Aren't they just darling?
Business cards are a big deal in Japan. (Maybe that's why I wanted some ever so badly.) There is an established ritual surrounding the proper way to present, exchange, and accept meishi (business cards) from the people you meet. Now I have some to share. Yay!

I used Vista Print to design and create the pink business cards using an online template that allowed me to upload my own graphics. I ordered the variety pack featuring my artwork from Moo using pictures from my Flickr account. I'm very happy with the results.
I have been setting small goals for myself to slowly creep into this creative life. My first goal was to create a website. Check. My second goal was to create business cards. Check. I love checking things off my list, don't you?
