Tell us about your business.Several moves of various packed boxes labeled "Craft" finally came out of hiding from a dark closet. As each box was opened, creative thoughts began to jam up my brain. Still I waited since the potential craft room first became a guest bedroom, a 2nd & finally a 3rd grade classroom. At last a new bright coat of turquoise paint, black accent shelving, clear plastic bins & a folding table enabled me to have a true craft room. Now to unpack those talking boxes. I love anything unique, unusual, & handcrafted! I had so many ideas tucked into my brain where would I start? I decided to concentrate on creating original one of a kind cards. Thus began SKYHI CARDS with my first creations in 2006. I make all my cards using various medium from craft & thrift stores. I will usually make a set of 6, 8, or 10 cards of a similar theme at one sitting. A goal is to consign in more shops, sell online & teach card classes so others may enjoy the thrill of creating unique cards.
What makes your business stand out?My SKYHI CARDS are all individual creations. Some may be similar when I make sets of cards, however every card in a set is still different. SKYHI CARDS are made of quality & often unusual materials picked up at thrift stores. They are inexpensive, less than $5. Most from $2 - $4. All cards are made personally by me to a high standard & are unique "One of a Kind" creations. No card is identical to another. Every card I make is photographed, labeled, and sealed in clear cello wrap with an envelope, keeping them in pristine condition. They can be given as a card or as a gift. Almost all of the SKYHI CARDS are left blank inside for personal greetings & sentiments. Room for a few simple words or even a longer greeting. Even those cards with special greetings inside usually have room for a personal greeting. Presently I consign my cards in stores & sell them at occasional Craft Fairs. I also sell them out right & plan to create a another website to help sell my cards.
