Notecards from an island and garden in Maine

Even though a lot of folks will tell you that handwritten notes are a lost art, in my world they are alive and well. Few things brighten my day more than finding a letter from a friend in my mailbox on the street outside of my house. Since 2013 I have been making almost daily drawings in pen and watercolor, and two years ago I started reproducing some of my favorites as blank notecards. This year I've chosen 16 new images, 8 of which are landscapes!

Now more than ever, I believe we need real ways to reach out connect with each other. What could be more simple, genuine and heartfelt than to pick up a pen and let someone know you are thinking of them?

Individual cards, which measure 4½" x 6¼", are available for $3.50 per card. All cards are printed in Maine on soft white matte card stock, and come with standard A6 envelopes. Please contact me (info[at]jmbroekman[dot]com) if you prefer to pay by check, and/or would like to pick your cards up in person, rather than having them shipped. Shipping (within the U.S.) will be done via USPS in a padded flat rate envelope for $7.50 per order (up to $75.00). Once you have placed an item in your cart, you'll be able to change the quantity over on the PayPal cart page.
