Virtual Birthday Cards



All greeting cards go to heaven. Okay, maybe not all of them, but a large portion of them are at the bottom of some huge pile somewhere. If you don't believe me, think back to a time when you found yourself tossing out a load of them in the garbage.

Yeah...exactly.

We're all just two celebrations away from being greeting card hoarders.

I'm trying to create a healthy balance between store-bought cards and ones with a personal touch. The times when I don't have enough time to pick up a greeting card, I resort to my creativeness. I used to make them all by hand, because I'm crafty like that (Please...don't hate). Nowadays, with technology literally at our fingertips, I can make a virtual greeting card in no time.

Check out two of the cards I've made in the recent weeks:

For my cousin, Tamara– a collage of pictures from over the years
*I gathered all the pics, added music, and boom...it was done!


Music by: Andrew Gold, 'Thank You for Being a Friend'



For my son's aunt– a silly and simple "Happy Birthday"
**we shot this footage in under 3 minutes before leaving the house for school


Music by: Ella Fitzgerald, 'Cheerful Little Earful' 

I don't think the extinction of greeting cards will ever happen, but I do know that I will be just fine if it ever does. It has definitely been a bit of March Madness the last few weeks, with a birthday occurring nearly every few days. 

What is it about March anyway?  If my calculations serve me correctly, June was the month of conception. 
Well, that's a whole other post. 

Bye for now.
