If I’m not working in my perennial and herb gardens, there is a very good chance that you will find me hard at work downstairs in my little Paper Garden studio. I just adore playing with ink, paper, stamps, and watercolors. However that isn’t what truly inspires me to nourish my heart and soul by creating handmade cards.
The real reason is so much more important!
♫ ♬ Please take a moment to enjoy this song.
The lyrics truly melt my heart… for so many reasons.
(I’ll be very quiet, so you can listen while you scroll down. 🙂 )
Perhaps you will understand why I do what I do…
Every time I hear this song
tears stream down my face.
These words hold so much meaning,
now more than ever…
I give love.
The very moment the ink is dry, I pop the card into an envelope, add a pretty postage stamp, and send the love to someone special. I make a few notes in my Paper Garden Journal, so that I will remember which stamps I used for each person’s card. (They will be getting much more happy mail from me, and I want each card to be extra special!) 🙂
“I give love to all of my people.
All my people need love.
I give some.”
~ Andy Grammer
So glad that you stopped to visit today.
Wishing you happy August days!
