The Art of Sending a Card

Part I.  Organize Your Greeting Card Station

Somewhere in your home is a special chair, desk or sitting area that you use at least once a day.  To prepare for your regular practice of sending good cheer to others on a regular basis, you first need to organize your Greeting Card Box.

Greeting Card Box

  1. Different colored pens
  2. Special postage stamps – keep a variety for different occasions
  3. Stickers and envelope seals
  4. Healthy array of special greeting cards
  5. Your special lists, i.e., Christmas card, office directory, etc.
  6. Your top 10 List of favorite quotes, phrases, jokes, stories to share.

The Heart and Soul of a True Artist

ozarksSome of the most interesting people are artists.  Those gifted people among us who express themselves by virtue of imagination, talent and skill through a particular medium/aesthetic.

shellyShelly Reeves Smith is an award winning watercolor artist from southern Missouri, and currently lives in Branson. Her illustrations of home and garden can be found on calendars, books, greeting cards and gifts.  The artwork on Easton Publishings cards was produced by Shelly and are a wonderful reflection of her beautiful spirit. Shelly has a blog and shares more about her and her art there.  She says, “I have a wonderful husband and son, and we make our home in the Ozarks in Southern Missouri along with our beloved setters. We prefer life in the country, where I can find plenty of inspiration for my work – among God’s beautiful creation or in homey objects that remind me of family or friends.” 

Lonesome Road

Her creative vein doesn’t stop with her watercolor paintings though, Shelly is also an accomplished musician.  She says when she isn’t spending time with her family or painting, she can be found playing with her blue grass band, “Lonesome Road.”  
Easton Publishing felt there was no one better that could express what they wanted to provide on their collection of special cards for life’s extraordinary moments…check them out here.  www.eastonpublishing.com.
