Which changes more…the weather or our greeting card messages?

Posted on Sunday, July 17th, 2016 at 8:30 pm

Some of you may have noticed that our card messages periodically (and for some frequently) change.  If we were perfect at writing messages, this would not happen. But we are not perfect at it, even though we’ve done it for eight years now.

We have found that writing messages most people really like is really hard.  I guess if we were naturally funny, witty, clever, or had majored in English, writing greeting card messages would come naturally to us.  But none of these descriptions apply to us. We are two analytical and detailed oriented people who are trying to use the right side of their brain (but which seems like the wrong side), and this apparently takes time and effort to do it well.

We continue to believe that God wanted us to create a greeting card business, or at least He was in approval of our desire to do it, despite our lack of artistic and creative talents.  As such, we will continue to plug along, asking for wisdom and creativity along the way, and pray that you will (eventually) be blessed from having the patience to read through many greeting card messages until you find ones that meet your expectations!
