What kind of mind could take dusty shoeboxes of old family photos and turn them into a collection that cheers people up and comforts them, too? A seasoned graphic designer, entertaining writer and lifetime prankster who was born to create cards, Shannon Martin loves what she does.
Shannon attributes any artistic tendencies to her mother, who used to paint faces on the fruit she put in her children's lunches. She has a background in art and design and draws inspiration from Joseph Cornell, Anne Lamott and her hero, Pippi Longstocking.
Why We Love Shannon Martin: If you haven't discovered Shannon Martin yet you're in for a real treat. Knowing inspiration can be funny (and sometimes even a little bit naughty), Shannon manages to pair old photographs with the perfect words to make you laugh out loud. What we love best about her stuff is that just by displaying one of her magnets or using one of her luggage tags, you can make a statement without even saying a word. Shannon's products make for great girlfriend gifts when - as we like to say - sometimes you just gotta laugh.
