School holiday....

It's not a holiday for those of us who work in the private sector...i.e. construction.   That's okay.  Like a lot of people have been saying, they are just thankful to have a job.  So if you are ever in a jam and can't afford to buy a gift, but want to give someone a fantastic card, that is as close to a gift as you can get....think Heartifacts Cards!!!!!

Being patient....

My Heartifacts Card company ad which is going in a local restaurant's menu is almost done.  I've spent over three years making most of my cards for free, so I am gearing up for just a little more exposure.  Still dreaming big!  Have a great day!

The "H" word.....

There's lots of to do about today.  Lots of scrambling, head scratching etc.  I could have made it so awesome and so easy for you had you gotten a Heartifacts Card.  That's okay, there are birthdays coming up and you've got 365 days to find that perfect picture to put on your card for next year.  Featuring your sweetheart on a card will be priceless and it won't cost you all that much!  Happy VD everyone!

Valentines Day isn't just for lovers....

I've finished my personal valentines.   I've always given valentines to my kids and the significant other of the moment.  I have a special cousin that I made a card for this year.  Maybe give someone a valentine or even a chocolate kiss to someone that least expects it.  Or next year, think of sending a Heartifacts Card with your valentine's face right on the cover!!!

Why I make cards....

Being creative has a rush all of it's own, but the first time I put a friend's head on someone else's body in order to have a comedic was magical.

So the next time you go to WalMart and you can't find a card that is just perfect for the occasion, my email address is above....Heartifacts Cards....Truly Unique Greeting Cards!!!

So sweet.....

Valentines Day is next Monday.  It always brings back memories of grammar school.  Did you make a special box or bag for the valentines from you classmates to go in to?  Oh and the anticipation to see if that special person made you a special valentine.  I like to think Valentines Day is a day signifying just love in general.  The more you have the more you can share....think about it.

It's more than just a card....

It's a card that features the person that the card is intended for so it's more than just a card.  The majority of my Heartifacts cards feature the people who the card was given to.   It's an interesting concept and I tell you it will be a hit if you try it!  Happy Birthday Everyone!!!!

Love - Hate relationship with Facebook

I love Facebook.  I enjoy freely expressing myself and seeing what my friends and family are up to.  Yet, does Facebook kind of take away the effort it takes for people to really connect?  Many of the friends I have on Facebook do live in other cities and if not for Facebook I probably would rarely see or know what they were up to.  Or like yesterday, I got Birthday wishes from people who probably didn't know it was my birthday had Facebook not told them.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed all the attention and wouldn't have gotten that much attention had I not had a Facebook account.  But do people still think about going to the store to get a special card for that special person?  That's why I started seriously making cards in the first place.  Do you still go to the store to buy a card when you think someone deserves more than a Facebook post?  Here's more birthday cards with real friends and family on them!

Today it's all about me!!

Got woken up this morning by my 16 year old daughter with Starbucks and powdered sugar donuts.  There is something pretty wonderful about kids getting older and being able to drive.  I'm not working today...gonna be out doing whatever I want to do today.  Here's some more cards celebrating the lives of people in my life!!

My daughter asked me yesterday what was my favorite breakfast.  Oh boy, that's a hard one as I love breakfast...there's french toast and waffles and omelets and then powdered sugar donettes, oh and biscuits and oatmeal with real fruit and nuts and cream and spices!  It made me feel special just thinking about it just like I like to make people feel extra special with a Heartifacts Card.
