Hallmark--and one of their artists--in NY Times

From the article:  Mary Hamilton, 74, who is one of the few Hallmark greeting card artists whose work bears her name, is known as “Hallmark’s Cher.”

The company has been selling cards for 100 years now and for more than half that time--55 years to be exact--the works of Ms. Hamilton have been among them.  Now 74 and widowed, she continues to work four days a week designing cards.  She said she was the longest tenured of Hallmark's 13,400 employees--except for the chairman, Donald J. Hall--and had produced more than 3,000 designs.

So, good on you, Ms. Hamilton.  Keep up the great work.

And happy holidays!
