I'm so excited to share brand new hand-drawn stationery sets and greeting cards for spring and summer! I plan on blogging about the backstories behind particular individual products over the next few weeks. For now, enjoy these images of some of the latest goods from Happy Cactus Designs!

I've also just published a brand new wholesale catalog for retailers. While Happy Cactus is taking this year off from the National Stationery Show, I'm eager to share the new goods with retailers. If you are a brick and mortar shop interesting in learning more about partnering with Happy Cactus, email me at hello[at]happycactudesigns.com and I'll share more information with you. Is there a local shop in your neighborhood where you'd love to see Happy Cactus products? I'd love for you to share its name with me below!

I'm very excited that Happy Cactus Designs will be taking part in the Etsy Dallas Spring Bash this Saturday in Dallas.
