This is a silly video, no makeup, in workout clothes, don't care. I wanted to share with you how to make a difference in someones life. Send them a card, and handmade greeting card. We are overcome with dumb mail these days. The art of sending personal birthday or anniversary or congratulations by traditional snail mail has been lost to impersonal social media messages. While still nice that you are honoring them, nothing beats someone taking the time to write a short message and sticking a postage stamp on it and mailing it. You never know when it might be too late to send it.
At a recent Team meeting, Lisa, a friend and team member spoke about making sure you send a card before it is too late. Her personal story, but the bottom line is make sure you are actually sending those cards you are making. She encouraged us to send, maybe 10 cards a month. I sent 15 that following Monday. And had sent about 50 the previous month. And now I am behind again. A friend, and fellow demonstrator, wants me to post when I have emptied the bag I show in the video. I am working on that Autumn. Just got sidelined for a few weeks. ;-)
I get off track on that once in a while. Life gets busy and the process derails. It happens. The whole reason I got into Stampin' Up! was to "save money on cards I like to send". Yeah, yeah, my husband gets the last laugh on that one.
I have been making cards to give and mail since I was 5 or 6. There is nothing like getting happy mail, especially today when most of what fills our mailboxes is "occupant" mail and bills. I like to reach out to others other than social media. Most of the cards I make are blank on the inside because I like to write my own greeting. This sounds harsh, but it seems lame to just sign your name. You are sending them a card to let them know you are thinking of them. Why are you thinking of them? Tell them!
If you post it on social media that you are sending cards, use one of the following hashtags. Let's get a real movement going!
Thank you for stopping by. I hope this encourages you send a few cards this week! ~Sandy
