Making cards

Welcome to my blog!

I have always been someone who loves to draw. I started making cards for my loved ones at a young age and have continued to do so over the years. This is still one of my favorite things in life as it involves both drawing and the people I care for most. Recently I started wondering why this is so fascinating to me and why sending cards in the mail seems to persist in the digital age. A blog seems like a perfect place to explore the craft of creating snail mail in all its varied forms. From simple postcards to elaborate wedding invitations, handwritten correspondence remains a source of connection, creativity, and inspiration. 

To start off the blog I have here one of my first cards-- an Easter card from 1981! (I loved horses and tried to draw them whenever possible.)

Did you make cards as a child? Why do you send them today? I'd love to hear your stories.

"Have a happy Easter like these horses!"
