Do you like receiving "Happy Mail?"

With just about everything closed or reduced in hours and so many of us staying home and practicing social distancing, it can be both boring or a pleasure. What better way to lift your spirits than to receive happy mail? Receiving a card from someone, whether it’s a celebration or just to say “Hello, I am thinking of you” can make someone’s day with a smile.

I propose we spend a little time doing just that, make up a card and send to someone who is also housebound. For anyone living in Canada, if you are interested in receiving “Happy Mail” from me, let me know and I will send a card to the first 50 people who subscribe.

Staying Home to Craft

Hi Everyone,

Well with my card classes cancelled for the time being, and lot’s of time spent at home, what’s a girl to do? Crafting of course.

Ok, well I would be crafting anyways but now I have more time, so decided to try something new. I made up this gift card box (or book) which holds five cards and envelopes to match up with the paper. How cute is that?

I am pretty pleased with how it turned out and it would make a great gift for someone who cannot get out and about. Add some stamps and they are all set. I left the inside of the cards blank so they can be tailored to suit any occasion.

Peaceful Boughs

I love the colours of green and gold together and I cannot believe how easy this card was to make up. Everything on the card comes with the purchased bundle so nothing else is needed.

I made up this beautiful card as both a landscape and a portrait card and I cannot decide which one I love more. I used the Mossy Meadow ink to stamp the boughs and the Metallic ink pad to stamp the acorns. I stamped the sentiment on the front in Gold on one and Mossey Meadow on the other. It works so well with the gold edge mettalic ribbon. So what is your favourite, the portrait card or the landscape card.

All items are available to purchase via my online store or by contacting me directly. November HOST CODE – AQM6YJEZ

World Card Making day

Did you know that World Card Making Day exists?

Well it does. It takes place every year, on the first Saturday of October. This special day encourages everyone in the whole wide world, to make a homemade card. I sure bet the card companies won’t like that!

Yesterday, I held a card making workshop to celebrate World Card Making Day. We got together to make 2 cards each of 5 different designs for a total of 10 cards to take home. With Christmas within sight, it also gives you a head start on your Christmas cards. I know a lot of people don’t send cards anymore which is a shame. Collecting your mail and receiving a special card from someone makes you smile and what better way to spread the smiles than to send a card.

People give one another cards to celebrate birthday celebrations, wedding ceremonies, accomplishments and much more, in addition to commiserate or support. But exactly how much does your sentiment mean, if it is simply purchased from a retail chain with little thought? Taking a bit of your time to make something sincere on your own, and show the recipient that you’ve really considered them means so much more to the recipient. It shows you care.
