Upcycling ideas: giving new life to old greeting cards:

It’s always my hope that the products people buy from me will be loved for a long time. 

I love writing special messages to my loved ones and I hope that’s enough for them to hold on to and treasure the greeting cards I write them in :).

But, I know that’s not always the case! I too am guilty of sending cards to the trash, in the spirit of decluttering and other life-changing magic

I grow increasingly excited about this year – if I had to pick a word to describe what I'm concentrating on, it would be "creating".
