Memorial Day 2016…
As many of you know, Memorial Day is a day on which those who died in active military service are remembered.
Memorial Day 2016 – Thanks Oodles!
The card you see above is a mixture of pretty papers, whimsical embellishments, and a fun color palette. But take a minute to close your eyes. Imagine receiving this card in the mail. Imagine how you would feel to see this handmade card along with a handwritten note and a picture or two inside. Kinda gives you the warm fuzzies, right?
Now imagine that this card is stored safely in a memory book with even more pictures and journaling. A keepsake accompanied by stories and adventures of your great grandparents perhaps? A walk down memory lane. A legacy to be passed down through the generations… Now open your eyes. This is why we do it. This is why we scrapbook and make handmade cards. It’s about remembering. It’s about lifting someones spirits. It’s about preserving family stories. It’s about celebrating achievements, falling in love through through handwritten notes of yesteryear, and holding onto sweet sentiments of incredible journines and so much more.
Your story is worth telling. Who will tell it when you are gone?
Today, from the bottom of my heart, thank you oodles and oodles. Thank you to all the brave military individuals who have put their lives on the line defending this wonderful country. Thank you for defending my freedoms so that I can sit at my desk and surround myself with pretty papers and many stories to tell.
