Soul's Notes (TL;DR): My favourite thing about greeting cards is that those notes of love and friendship are always there, waiting for you to pick them up and read them. No scrolling or sorting through messages of mundanity, or even viewing social media profiles and feeling disconnected. (Also, a pretty awesome sneak peek of our newest collection is at the bottom of this post!)
It is snowing like crazy here in Edmonton, and of course, this means we all officially have the weather gods' permission to start listening to Christmas music.
I wanted to touch upon yet another reason why I love creating greeting cards, even though it may seem too "old school" for today's day and age.
Having something physical to hold and cherish is just a different experience, period. I have already mentioned how cool it is to receive a handwritten note from someone you love, but wait, there's more!
I'm sure we all have longstanding text/SMS or WhatsApp messaging threads with some of our closest friends and family. I hope I'm not the only weirdo who does this, but sometimes, I will lie in bed and scroll through previous conversations just to bask in the connection of people who genuinely adore me. I have to say, though, sometimes the act of scrolling, especially when you want to find a specific conversation you had, can be borderline annoying. As such, my favourite thing about greeting cards is that those notes of love and friendship are always there, waiting for you to pick them up and read them. No scrolling, sorting through messages of mundanity, or even viewing social media profiles and feeling disconnected. Those beautiful, unique, handwritten notes are just there, waiting for you to re-read them as many times as you'd like.
Let's not forget that greeting card messages are also written only for you to view. It's not a social media status update engineered to garner likes and attention from as many people as possible. Handwritten notes are purely for you to enjoy and feel appreciated. Pretty neat!
Alright, I'll get off my soapbox now. But wait! There's more! We are going to release our newest holiday collection this month, and oh em gee, I couldn't be more excited. These might be my favourite designs yet!! (Don't tell the other cards.) Here's a sneak peek!
Is my mom an artistic genius or what?!
