Drawing Up Greetings

Been on a DIY kick lately. First journals now greeting cards…well, partially. I have four special women in my life; a mom, a grandma, a step mom and a mother in law, all of who I wanted to send a card to for this Mother’s Day. But after visiting my local card store, I couldn’t justify paying $4.99 or more for 4×6, pre-messaged cards that only halfway expressed what these ladies mean to me and that will eventually end up in the recycle bin. So I opted for some blank ones, that were $2-3 a piece and drew up my own messages. My calligraphy skills aren’t that good and I kinda felt a bit elementary while doing them but I really hope they like the cards. 😊

  1. It really doesn’t matter what the writing looks like, Q. Handmade/hand drawn cards are great and make the recipient feel they’ve been given something precious, done just for them. I’ve sent lots, myself,and they are always received well, and I still have several that were sent to my parents by other artists. (My mother was an artist, too, and we knew many).

    1. To my surprise my hand drawn cards were received well and greatly appreciated. It’s strange how childish I felt while making them. I had a not so good experience of giving hand made gifts as a child which left me with the impression that people prefer nice things that have been bought from a store. So while I was making these greeting cards, those feelings resurfaced. Luckily they were unwarranted. I think think I might do this again next Mother’s Day or maybe do so for any special occasion or holiday.
