Less cards, more effort!

Rosana Kooymans

I'm a Dutch designer and artist. I run 2 Etsy shops. On Rosana Kooymans: Art & Design I mostly sell Freezer Bunny plushies and hand drawn illustrations. And on Retro Hugs I sell planner and craft supplies.

I'm crazy about my Filofax and Carpe Diem planners, and I also create custom inserts and stickers for planners.

In my spare time you can find me gaming/creating on SNW. I stream twice a week on Twitch.

I love my geeky hubby and our 3 creative, geeky sons!

On this blog you can find some of my crafty projects (including handmade cards), illustrations, design projects, photography, family life and my health journey. I record the occasional video too, and plan on recording more crafty and planning videos soon. So keep an eye on my blog.

It's Freezer Bunny again!

Last year I decided to make custom Christmas cards for friends and family. But since I decided to make them myself, and with my Retro Hugs shop taking off, I had limited time to work on the cards. So to a bunch of people I sent New Year's cards.

I also decided to send less cards. I used to send about 100 cards to family and friends. Yet I only got about 25-50 back. And that amount decreased immensely each year. Postage stamps are really expensive, and while I don't think people have to give back exactly the same thing I give to them, it would be nice if people tried a little harder. Especially within my relatives I noticed sending a card is too much to ask for, so I'm going to do myself a favour and spend less money on cards to these people.

Instead, I want to spend more time on cards I send to friends and family who DO appreciate it and send something back. I illustrated and crafted this card myself for someone I met because of The Sims (can you tell?) 😄

I'm pleased with how it turned out!
