Interested in art throughout her school years, Engelbreit eventually began to work for a local advertising company, Hot Buttered Graphics. Hoping to work as an illustrator of children’s books, she shopped her portfolio around New York City without success. At the suggestion of one art director[who?][why?], she began working in greeting cards; her first nationally distributed greeting card featured a malapropism that played off an old saying, “Life is just a bowl of cherries”, showing a girl looking at a chair piled high with bowls, with the legend: “Life is just a chair of bowlies. ” She began in St. Louis. She also sold her greeting cards, and it was a hit in University City. It was called: “a vast empire of cuteness!”
