Welcome to Always Different Greeting Cards which is the name of my greeting card company where I am the owner and designer.
I have a fascination with beauty and elegance and I have chosen to portray it through my greeting card designs. Have you ever or do you appreciate getting a handmade personalized greeting card? Most people do.
There is a special sentiment attached to something that you receive that is handmade. Just to think that someone thought enough of me to pick out a handmade greeting card with my name on it. It can make you get all in your feelings. Well some of us.
All of my greeting cards are different and that it is intentional. There are no two alike, thus the name of my company. I don’t really know if I get bored easily from making the same old designs or if I have Attention Defisite Disorder LOL
This whole business of making greeting cards began over twenty years ago.
My youngest daughter, Porsche, came home from elementary school one day and ask if I could make a greeting card for her teacher. I told her that I would try to, so I did, and that was the beginning of my paper crafting journey. Although I didn’t know it yet.
Porsche’s teacher, Ms. Kinkaid, was so excited about receiving the personalized greeting card that I had made for her. She loved it and that it encouraged me to continued making cards to this day.
So shouts out to you Ms. Kinkaid because you changed my destiny!
When I design each card I always include some form of elegance to it and I add a little portion of love to each card, as well.
LET’S MAKE THIS WORLD A SOFTER, KINDER, MORE GENTLE AND LOVING PLACE~
As a young child I often remember hearing my late-mother, (Dorothy Drinkard), say that we were put here on this earth to help each other and if we don’t do that, why are we really here? I have thought about this often over the years. The conclusion that I have come to is that Dorothy was right.
Oh, and another thing that Dorothy was right about, always keep God 1st and she loved beauty. She noticed a lot of the beauty in this world and would always stop to acknowledge it. I guess that’s where I got that from.
Now that I am starting to discover more about the internet and I am building my very own website I would like to take you on a journey with me to find out “How To Discover Beauty”. I will attempt each day to inspire you, encourage you, lift you up through positive thoughts, words of encouragement and even a scripture or two, comedy included.
Challenging you with questions that are relevant to the topic of the day. Always welcoming your feedback or if you just add to the conversation. This is a site to come too just to chill with thoughts of beauty. Forget about the traffic, cooking, the kids, the man….well maybe not the man. LOL But come to this site to relax to get away from the stress and anxiety of the day. With happy thoughts and aspects of comedy and love are infused in the atmosphere.
Is to form a community that can get together and talk about things that are relevant to beauty. Praying that we can all become better people just because we met on this platform and decided we wanted to “Discover Beauty”.
And to sell my greeting cards, of course.
First piece of advice if you would like to see something beautiful each morning: Change your default browser to Bing.com. They have the most beautiful images each day.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
