I Made Business Cards! (And I'm Far Too Excited About Them!)

{Cursive font || Print font}
I'm heading to a SCBWI conference in western Maryland on Saturday—my first conference in two years!—and so I've been tackling my pre-attendance check list. 

Cute outfit? I have a few options!
Comfy shoes? Of course!
Trusty pen for taking notes? Right in my purse!
Business cards? Oh yeah. Business cards... 

I bought a package of business cards in 2009 for my very first writers' conference (incidentally it's the same one I'm attending on Saturday!) but now the information is woefully out of date. Also, doesn't 2009 sound like it was ages ago? I mean, it was in a different decade! 

Now I feel old. I better move on before I age even more.

So I thought I'd try my hand at designing my own business cards and uploading them to Moo.com because my friend Erin Bowman used Moo for her cards and they turned out fabulously. When in design doubt, follow Erin I say! I ended up designing four different themes for the front of the card (Moo allows you to upload up to 50!) as well as one version for the back. I've also opted for rounded corners, which I think adds a cute touch. Here's the back:

What do y'all think? Is the color blinding your eyes? As for the back of the card, I wasn't sure if I should include my phone number but I did it because my old cards had it and for aesthetic reasons. Once I get the final book cover and title change for ANOMALY, I'll make another set of cards or bookmarks to pass out, maybe to every single person I meet. ("Hi! Please buy my book! Here's a cookie!") Until then, I'll put these puppies to good use.

Anyway, how was your weekend? I had a lazy Saturday at the farmer's market and then met with friends for a picnic on Sunday. It was relaxing and rejuvenating, especially with the glorious autumn weather, and I almost feel ready to dive back into Round 2 of editorial revisions. I may need a few cookies first!
