In preparation for a "one stop shopping" evening with vendors at a local church on November 21, I have been diligently creating cards to sell. I am over 100, and feel as though I should have at least 500 in order to offer variety to shoppers. However, I wonder if the ones I have made are marketable - they are "crafty", not exactly art. So I am posting pictures of them and would appreciate your input - are they marketable?
Please comment here, or to my email, and know that I am grateful for your honest opinion.

In this time of criticism of public persona (whether it be teachers, principals, or the like), here's a quote worth thinking about, from Theodore Roosevelt, "It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
