Are you the sentimental type who keeps all the greeting cards that have ever been given to you on every occasion? How can you throw them out when people you love have handwritten you notes with all their best wishes? They are so lovely to read back on and can become priceless when people pass on and you have their handwriting.
And then if you have children the card becomes more special than the gift! The first time they draw you a picture, write I love you and grow to write messages, those cards never get thrown out and you never want to lose them.
Together with Kyree Harvey of @misskyreeloves, we have created a keepsake that over the years will be another way of collecting your memories with handwritten gifts of love.
Cards For Keeps is a special journal for you. Where your partner, children, family or friends can create their own cards every year, write messages, draw pictures or stick photos for any occasion. You will have them in the one place together to look back on with fond memories for years to come. It will be like a never-ending love letter over many years.
It is also a tradition you can start with children. A journal they will read back on in their adult life and forever have love and wishes with them in loved ones handwriting.
We always say there is nothing more sentimental then a handmade card. Cards For Keeps is the place to keep yearly messages and memories for Birthday, Christmas, Mothers Day, Fathers Day and any other occasions close to your hearts.
A note from Kyree:
“ I’ve always loved cards on special occasions. I’ve kept every card since I was little and literally have boxes of them stored around. I more recently chose to only keep the sentimental ones from my husband and from the kids to reduce how much I’m collecting.
I’ve stored the cards in a more organised box under each celebration tab so I can look back on them. But I was still craving something that was ultra-sentimental and super easy to pull out at any time to flip through.
I wanted a book where I could display in our home always and see the change in handwriting over the years as my children grow up. I wanted to see their artwork flourish and the love between their mummy and daddy wrapped around all the same pages.
So the Cards For Keeps book came to life. I’m so proud of this baby that I helped to create with Write To Me. The timeless velvet fabric in both red and blue, perfect for all members of your family to personalise.
Each birthday, mother’s day, father’s day, any special occasion. Use this book to write your well wishes, your love notes, your dreams and hopes for the year to come. We’ve kept the pages blank for you and your children to fill each page over the years with your creativity and adventures.
In 30+ years time, you’ll be able to flip through the book and reminisce over hundreds of memories made.”
