Greetings! And Greeting Cards!

As I write this, there is a crew of strapping, be-denimed men in my front yard, replacing the power poles. For that reason, I have been without electricity for most of the morning (hence the late post). No matter, I took advantage of NOT being able to DO anything ELSE, and replenished my supply of handmade, collaged greeting cards. I just love to make cards and mail them to people, because getting something in the mail that’s not a catalog or a bill reminds me that I’m a human being with friends. As much as I love the convenience of email, it has, in a way, contributed to the decline of good old-fashioned stamped correspondence. Is it just me or do you feel the same way?

Here are some of my favorites from this morning:

When was the last time you got something FUN in the mail?

    I used to spend Friday nights making cards, but I haven’t done that in years. I agree with you, I love sending and receiving cards that make me feel like a human being (I love that!). Your new cards are so gorgeous. I love the collage idea with cut-out sayings to communication the message! Wouldn’t these just make someone’s day. (can I give you my address?! LOL)
