Five Reasons I Craft and Send Cards

For me, receiving snail mail is one of life's greatest delights.

It has such a permanent, personal, and physical quality to it.

It requires thought. It requires time. It requires money.

It means someone thought I was worthy of that thought, time, and money.

It's probably why I devote so much of my own time, energy, and resources to crafting and sending cards of my own.

Here are five reasons I craft and send cards:

  1. To inspire

  2. To comfort

  3. To express gratitude

  4. To recognize

  5. To congratulate

People need this right now - what with pandemic isolation, social unrest, and political division.

I invite YOU to join me in meeting this need.

As you probably know, I've made some of my notecard packs available for purchase in the shop. These are hand-painted and -crafted, and sending them is like sending someone a little piece of art. Obviously, I'm honored if you choose something from my stock, but dollar stores and stores like Wal-Mart and Target have fun options, too.

And, while sending cards via snail mail is a great way to support postal service workers, it's also fun to fill them with little messages and give them to people with whom I come into contact - waitresses, cashiers,...

The point is to spread encouragement - inspiration, comfort, gratitude, recognition, and congratulations - in a meaningful way, however small.

You ready?

BONUS: When you purchase notecards from my MAGNIFICAT collection (there are new colors every month!), 100% of the proceeds are donated to Crazy8 Ministries in Joshua, TX. I am not affiliated with them, but I am grateful for the work they do restoring people from poverty.
