Easter is Sunday, April 4th

Posted by Ellen Hamilton on

Easter cards, birthday cards, anniversary cards and Alexandria greeting cards all have photography, art and design done here at Yellow Dot Shop. I am hand printing sheets of wrapping paper for various holidays. My purses are sewn with my own printed fabric.

Celebrating Martin Luther King and Robbie Burns

Posted by Ellen Hamilton on

January 15th is the birthday of American civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. One of Yellow Dot Shop's missions is to acknowledge the different cultures that live side by side in the US. I aim to carry items on the culture and history of African Americans, Native Americans and British Americans. For King's birthday, I embarked on my first two-color printing project that would require tightly registering the colors.
