Value Relationships in 2020!

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope these first 13 days of the new year, and new decade, have been GREAT for you! Thanks for joining me and my "Blog with Friends". Below you will find visuals and links to their posts around the title of "New Year" so be sure to go see what they have to share with you!

One thing I work to be mindful of is valuing relationships and do so by sending handmade greeting cards. However, I want to be more intentional of this in 2020. 

I've always valued quality relationships, which are few and far between. I always assumed that relationships would be better as you aged and have found that to be the opposite. I think, with this time of social media, that it's easy to be a bit more passive in fostering relationships and the days of mailing a greeting card is few. 

I have created these handmade greeting cards and will be mailing them out soon. When is the last time you sent some happy mail to someone you care about? Wouldn't it be more fun to receive something like this than a bill or advertisements in the mail? 

I challenge you to make it a priority to do so and I'm offering to do the same for you. If you are interested in receiving a handmade card from me in the mail, email me at Please provide your name and your email address. (At this time, I'm going to start with U.S. residents. If you live out of the country, please still contact me with your information.)
If you are interested in making cards of your own, here are the contents that come in the Celebrate Today Cardmaking Kit. Please contact me with questions or for additional information

I appreciate you stopping by today and invite you to make your way around the blogs provided below. There is some fun content I know you will enjoy. Make it a great day and week!


  1. I am with you Melissa. The mailbox should contain a handwritten note every so often.
    I mailed one today, as a matter of fact! My Godmother turns 70, and I wrote a pretty card for her.

  2. I love making cards or even buying plain cheap ones to send out with written personalized notes. It def makes my day to receive a card vs a bill.
