Do it yourself, it can’t be worse!

Posted: December 11, 2007 in Ramblings
Some of my friends on are upset because they cannot lay their hands on a decent birthday card during December.
When can you buy a decent Birthday Card?
I am sorry but as a frustrated graphic designer I can only find interesting cards in designer shops or up to date bookshops maybe. The trash that is thrown at the public is overwhelming and I have found even the untrained eye on receiving something different or wantable can tell the difference  – the question is always "where did you get this?".
If Facebook contributors can get Cadburys to make their chocolate bars again, do you think they could tell whoever where to put their greetings cards? Most look the same as cards of 1930’s or have comic book cartoons and text!
What actually happens in stores is that the Christmas Cards are put in the place of the least selling Birthday cards and the standard Birthday lines fill what is left! If that is a standard well, I think one of our friends on here was talking of making them herself, Christmas and Birthday cards, can’t be worse, we might even enjoy using our computers and photos and downloadable images to make cards particularly for the new generation of techno-kids!
Happy Birthdays and Holidays

I often make my own cards with the computer. Especially for my grandchildren because I love putting their pictures in them.

But wanted to thank you for the comments you left, they meant a lot and I was very touched, but please don\’t feel helpless because your words pick me up when I am down, friendship is a tonic no matter how many miles between,and your understanding of my situation is total. You are a kind and caring friend and you to are not just a space.
    I hope you have a good holidays with your family, and that you are ok. Don\’t worry about me I\’ll be right, I\’ve had my warning shot so I\’m going to be taking it easy, and follow orders, tho usually am pretty crap at that lol. Will be nice to catch up for a chat when its possible…my pc will be coming home soon 🙂 its at sis\’s (ex in law) and her hubby is in the process of getting it together, so I\’ll get more time back on here again soon…I have soo missed it! ok so I\’ve had access via this pc, but its just not the same as my own, plus time is somewhat limited!

    Hi There,
    I really love Christmas but also think most cards today are rubbish, I love it when my grandkids make me a card or even my kids and family, so I agree make your own to let people know you care, have a good night…Lynn
