Do you send flowers to your grandma on her birthday? When was the last time you sent them to your mom, your sister, your godmother, best friend or favourite aunt?
Do you wait for a special occasion? A birthday? Graduation? Anniversary? Or are you more of an out-of-the-blue sort of person?
And what do you write on the card?
I love getting flowers and equally enjoy sending them…there’s something about brightening someone’s day and letting them know exactly what they mean to you. So, when deciding on a whole new design for my “Things We Love About You” artwork…I chose to design an entire theme around flowers! But in this case..what you say when you send these flowers, is a whole lot more than what can fit on a tiny florist card!
I first made “70 things We Love About You” for my father’s birthday. Five years later, I gave one to Mom for her 75th, and during that time, I hadn’t changed the design at all. For me…this has been the gift that keeps on giving as I’ve sold over 2600 pieces, in multiple languages, all over the world for various occasions including birthdays, retirement, anniversaries, graduations and “just because” gifts.
But…it was time for a refresh!
My project has been a HUGE WIN for me. What started as a side-hustle, has turned into my main source of income and while that’s pretty spectacular, I also can’t even begin to tell you how rewarding it is to peer into the lives of people around the world…to see all of the ways people love one another…all of the things that connect us together…that we cherish and find most valuable.
It truly is the gift to give to someone who has everything…but even bigger than that…it’s the gift that allows you to share with someone you admire, EXACTLY what they mean to you.
While I love to MAKE them and really felt great GIVING them…let me tell you, RECEIVING one is EVEN BETTER! In 2018, my children gave me a “50 Things We Love About You” piece for my birthday and it was OVERWHELMING to read all of the amazing things that friends and family members said about me. It truly was, the perfect gift (and I plan on writing a post about receiving one soon!)
