homemade notecard II
I read a random blog entry yesterday by someone who listed a fair number of reasons why he (or she, not sure) didn’t much care for home made greeting cards. The author preferred a standard card purchased in a store.
Well, ok. I’ll make sure not to send this little cutie pie to that person.
I don’t expect the recipients of my cards to consider them works of art and keep them in a place of honor in their homes for ever and ever. I only expect that the cards will bring them a little smile. Maybe even make them feel special, if only for a minute. I figure they’ll end up in the trash sooner or later. That’s one of the reasons I lately decided to make them.
This one uses recycled parts from previously used envelopes (notice the postmark) and colorful paper fragments from other pieces of junk mail. The clothes hangers were easy to bend into shape from two Christmas tree ornament hooks. Perfectly sized too.
Thanks so much for reading. Recycling rocks!
