Cards for every occasion

I like the idea that you can now buy a card for nearly every occasion/celebration. Weddings, Christenings, Graduations, Good Luck etc. I love getting post, other than bills that is. I also love guessing who it is from by the handwriting! Does anybody else play this game? 
Anyway, here are some more images of my logo and cards....

Other Cards

I believe my husband thinks he is living with an elf as our living room resembles a typical workshop at the North Pole at the moment with ribbon, glitter and glue everywhere. Despite this Christmas grotto style explosion, I have also been making some non-christmas cards. Please see below for 2 of these and my logo....again, please let me know what you think!

Christmas Cards (part 2)

Here are some more images of my designs/ideas.

Christmas Cards

Last year I spent a long time looking for Christmas Cards. I finally found the ones I liked but didn't manage to buy enough so ended up sending 2 different types!
This seems to happen every year, which means that each year I end up with 1 or 2 cards left!

So I decided that Christmas 2013 is the year that I will make my own Christmas Cards and then I can make exactly how many I need (approximately 40ish!).

So here are a few images of the ones I have been working on.....let me know what you think.......

Thank You Letters & Post Cards

So ever since I was young I have loved to write.
I used to be the first one to have written all my thank you letters after Christmas or my birthday. To me it was never really a chore, I enjoyed it. I used to draft out what I would write first and then choose the thank you card or writing paper and then, in ink pen, I would set to work.
Thank you letters are a thing of the past now. People send emails or texts rather than a letter. I still prefer the personal touch.

Another tradition was post cards. This is still a very strong tradition in my family and I would approach it the same as my thank you letters, trying to draft out what I wanted to say in my head before committing it to paper/card.
I wonder if this tradition is fading due to the large increase in price for a stamp? You can now buy about 2 postcards for the price of one stamp!

This love of writing and telling a story has made me interested in writing a blog and sharing my thoughts, ideas and passions with other people in a quirky sort of way.
I am not an expert at spelling or grammar but I hope that some people will enjoy reading my ramblings as they are.
