THE STORY BEHIND BONAIR DAYDREAMS I grew up in a small Pennsylvania town on Bonair Drive. Bonair Daydreams symbolizes the inspiration and joy I lived as a child. My hope is that my cards and memories bring you a touch of joy as well. Bonair Daydreams, my inspirational greeting card line, combines black and white photography and inspirational quotations. I have been told that my cards evoke warm feelings and capture special moments in time. The images are intimate, human, and fragile. I photograph everyday people and everyday moments and I try to make the ordinary extraordinary. Bonair Daydreams was created in 1993. I spent years pondering the idea of starting a card line combining my photos and my collection of favorite quotes, but it took a deep tragedy to inspire 105B, C, F action: My sister, Tracy, passed away after a long struggle with cancer. We were soul mates and her death was an incredible loss to me.

year to satisfy my reps and customers and stay competitive with the big companies. In 1999, my second daughter Lily was born, and I realized that I needed help filling card orders that were now coming in on a daily basis. I was grateful that my cards were doing so well and felt blessed to be able to stay home with my young children. To date, I have won 7 LOUIE AWARDS at The National Stationery Show in NYC and 18 of my designs have been selected as finalists from thousands of entries. A few years ago, I signed on with a licensing agent facilitating the placement of my images on bookmarks, framed art, music boxes, calendars and more. I am grateful that I have my business to pay the bills. I wake up every day thanking God for the gifts He has bestowed on me. The wonderful inspiring notes and emails that I receive from people who are touched by my cards keep me going. My work has been an exciting and spiritual journey. I feel in my heart that I am doing the work God intended me to do, and somehow I know Tracy is a part of it all. It is no coincidence that her card has been my best seller all these years. Who says there's no such thing as a guardian 406B, L, PS angel?

I designed a Thank You card for those who had attended the funeral using a photo I had taken of Tracy years before. It was a silhouette of her dancing on a rooftop in San Francisco. This had been my mother's favorite picture of Tracy - it captured her essence, her love of life. Under the photo, I hand wrote Ecclesiastes 3:4 from the Bible: "A time to weep and a time to laugh; A time to mourn and a time to dance." The response of friends and family touched by that card was so overwhelming that I felt led to start an official card line.

My beautiful golden retriever Shanna passed away this year. She has been on the cover of so many of my cards, and in dedication to her amazing life, I created card #406 to express the love I shared with this extraordinary dog!

I borrowed money through my credit cards and started with one small gift pack. After showing that to a few big card representatives at the Los Angeles Gift Mart, I decided to expand the line to 3 gift packs and 32 counter cards. Soon I was hiring reps across the country and within one or two years, had one covering almost every state.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

My second year in business, I won my first LOUIE AWARD from The Greeting Card Association. I was asked to fly to New York City where the National Stationery Show was being held to accept it. My first child, Annie, was only 7 months old and still nursing so I took Annie and my Mom along for an incredible adventure in the Big Apple. The business grew steadily: I was designing 10 to 12 new cards a

et me just say first that I lOVE your cards. The photography is stunning and the words you find to match your images are wonderful.

I first saw your cards at a small gift shop in Shipshewana, Indiana and bought one there for a friend, who later ordered some from you and then she sent me one back. It also just so happened that when I went through my grandmother's card collection after she passed away that there was a box of your cards, which I then inherited. Your work is truly a ministry.” Peace, - AlICIA Did you have any idea that all your hopes and dreams would come in such a small package?

LOUIE AWARDS 307T

For many years, the winners of the AnnuAl InternAtIonAl GreetInG CArd Awards are announced during the National Stationery Show in New York City. Considered by many in the industry to be the equivalent of "Oscar" night, the LOUIE Awards are presented in over 50 categories drawing more than 900 entries from over 160 U.S. and International publishing companies.

The awards are named after German lithographer Louis Prang who is credited with the birth of the card industry in the United States in 1875. The Louie Award was established over two decades ago to acknowledge creative excellence in the greeting card industry. The judges individually review and carefully score each card submitted on a 1-10 point scale based on the competition's established criteria: Imagination, Impact, Artistry, Harmony, Sensibility, and Value. Since starting Bonair Daydreams, Chrissy has competed and won in this competition increasing the popularity of her cardline. Because of the feelings that each of her cards reflect, everyday life combined with inspirational quotes, her work provokes an emotional response. Chrissy is continuously creating new designs that reflect her own life experiences and truth. Her hope is that through her own personal memories and moments, people can sincerely relate and be touched along the way.
