Because I don’t have enough going on in my life, I’ve been making greeting cards. While this may not seem all that strange, you should know that I don’t send cards to people. I think I’ve purchased only a handful of cards in my life, and those were for very specific events (“sorry, I can’t come to the funeral,” “here’s some money” and “I’m getting married”). So why would someone who doesn’t send cards to people decide to start making cards? I have no idea. It’s a little odd, but I’m having fun with it.
I started with ordinary cards. No special occasion, just wanted to make something pretty and simple. Like most of my hobbies, I have no idea what made me do this.
Then I decided to try getting a little fancy. Add more elements, some glitter, maybe some words. Pop-up cards? Interactive bits? (I see you like cards, so I put a card on your card so you can write a note to go with your note) Why not?
Then things got out of hand… accordion pop-ups, weird shapes, Christmas tree forests… the possibilities are endless.
I don’t know what I’m doing, and I’m okay with that.
