Cards

How come people just don't write anymore? Yeah, yeah, I know why, and I'm typing on one right now. But some of us still do. I love sending and receiving cards, cards with actual handwriting inside. Imagine that!
So I decided to make a bunch of cards for my Etsy shop, and with any luck I'll start a trend. I mean, emails are so ethereal. They're there, but not really. I like a card or postcard you can look at any times. Stick it on the fridge, prop it up on your desk. I love sending postcards when I travel, and not just because it's the "retro" thing to do.
Email's great, but real mail?...can't beat it.

  3. You know, I still write and send cards. I am one who loves to buy cards, keep them and will take every opportunity to send them. I really love your cards, great designs, simple but yet so full of meaning in each one of them. Each one seems to tell a story...Wish I could get hold of some right now to keep :) ...boon

About Me

My photo
A blog mostly about my photography, my etsy shop, travel, and other assorted addictions and predilections. I've been passionate about photography for just about as long as I can remember, right from that very first 1960s Kodak Brownie around my wrist at Upper Canada Village... A great deal of my adult life has been spent travelling the world for extended periods, always with cameras in tow. My photographic interests run the gamut from intimate portraits to landscapes to ephemera to street life. Although firmly entrenched in the digital age, I have a weakness for film and for old cameras.
