a house of cards

as most of you know, I work at a local Hallmark store.  However, I rarely buy the cards.  I know. I work in a card shop, because I love cards, and I never buy them.  The shame.

In high school I started making cards for friends for birthdays and special occasions...and I suppose I really haven't stopped.  Part of me just feels like it means more if I make the card myself...more personalized and special.  So...for the last 18 months I've been making Josh cards, for all different occasions.

here is the first card I made him:


It's fun to see a lot of the cards on the fridge or around the house and think back to what was going on at those different points.  I LOVED the card I made him after we had been dating for 2 months...


you can make a card for EVERY occasion...


more monthiversaries...



for our 6 month dating versary I made a timeline of all of the fun things we had done...


of course holidays get cards as well...


so the next time someone you think is awesome has a birthday, or there is a special occasion I'd encourage you to bust out some glue, tape, scissors (though I tend not always use scissors) and make something special for him or her.

the wedding countdown is 18 days! HOLY MOLY! if blogs are a bit more sparse than I'm more than likely off wrapping, ordering, packing, finalizing, moving, punching holes, tying twine, and everything else!

Those are so fabulous! And in 20 years, you will so treasure things like the timeline.

I think I still have some of the cards you made in high school. You are the BEST card-maker!
