One of the coolest things about any greeting card is that there’s usually a fascinating story behind it. The only question is: do you consider them captivating enough to share? You should share because, in truth, they are interesting whether you think so or not.

That’s why my family’s card quests have led to a lot of stories. Some of which are on this site:

I used the love-shaped petals I saved from my wedding to make this love card five years later.

Remember when I used the love-shaped petals I saved from my wedding to make a love card five years later? Apart from this, I messed up my first attempt and had to start all over. I still have both cards for you to see.

How about the Facebook post about the collage card I’ve been making for my son for about a year (link opens in a new window & don't forget to like us on Facebook)!

Not to mention when I made both miss you card styles because I was too indecisive to pick one?

Plus, the many bad habits I had with my card making supplies before I turned over a new leaf and had a makeover of my supplies.


...But enough about that because it's about you!

Whether or not you make your own cards, plus whether you send and receive them through hand delivery, snail mail, e-mail, or other means, one thing is certain:

There's more to greeting cards than just a mere pass time hobby. And it doesn't have to turn into tedious, stressful work either.

Card projects can become adventures for both the sender and receiver. These adventures turn into memories. And these memories, in turn, become history.

Please feel free to share the mere pass time hobbies, pleasant or stressful projects, amazingly gutsy creations, good and bad memories, plus wonderful history.
