In the innovative Frame-Ups format, 50 illustrated affirmation cards inspired by the world of plants are accompanied by a stand-up easel frame that makes it easy to display a favourite or change it for a new sentiment as often as desired. From the visual variety of foliage to the wide range of artfully designed pots and planters, keeping houseplants is an addictive hobby that's enjoying a renaissance in popularity. In Plant Inspiration Frame-Ups, 50 beautifully illustrated affirmation cards take inspiration from the world of indoor plants, with each card featuring clever plant-art interpretations of classic phrases. “Don't be afraid to take up space” is juxtaposed with a monstrous monstera plant engulfing a living room; “Take a moment to breathe” features a collection of air plants suspended in hanging planters; and “Create something” comes alive with an illustration of a spider plant sprouting many pups. Bright, whimsical, and uplifting, these cards call out to be displayed, and the Frame-Ups format makes it easy to do just that. With a pull-out tabletop frame included, you don't need to have a green thumb to display your favourite saying or swap it out for another whenever you need fresh perspective. AUTHOR: Mary Rose Amoresano sees taking care of houseplants as a kind of meditation and finds daily inspiration from the green world. Born and raised in New Jersey, the Garden State, some of her earliest memories include watching her mother propagate spider plants and grow a vegetable garden in their backyard. Amoresano earned a degree in English from Clemson University, where she focused on writing and publications studies. She works in book sales and lives in a houseplant-filled apartment in Jersey City. Katie Vernon is an illustrator who has spent most of her life in the midwest but whose heart belongs in the mountains. Her inspiration comes from being a florist, working with alpacas, and living on a bus. She's worked with Anthropologie, IKEA, Papyrus, Hallmark, and Chronicle Books, and she has been featured on HGTV, Design*Sponge, and OhJoy! She lives in Dubuque, Iowa.
