While Cindy and I have been more than just a little swamped over the last month, Ellen Falbowski (the rescue's board secretary) and Joanne Colangelo (our boundlessly enthusiastic cheerleader) have been busy beavers.
The result is an expansion of our guinea pig-themed note cards and greeting cards in our Zazzle gallery, beginning with three Valentine's cards and one "thinking of you" card.
We're extraordinarily fortunate to have a good friend in Joanne, who is from Mahopac, NY. A talented and underexposed pet photographer, Joanne is a Board Member of the Putnam Humane Society and has been working with rescue groups and shelters for more than 20 years. Joanne and her six rescued guinea pigs are a perfect match: Joanne has a talent for taking imaginative and fun pictures and her piggies clearly love to pose!
We'll be continuing to add cards in the coming weeks for a wide variety of occasions, including St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Graduation, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthday, Bridal Shower Invitation, Bridal Shower Thank You, All-Purpose Thank You, and Thinking of You. Joanne is donating her photos to the rescue to help its fundraising efforts.
Check them out...and stay tuned!
