Thinking of You with Butterflies

Card of the Day 08/14/16 – Thinking of You with Butterflies

Card of the Day 08/14/16

For today’s Card of the Day I choose the Thinking of You with Butterflies Card. As my dear friend Virginia moves into her new home I’m filled with both sadness and joy. Sadness because I will not get to see her as often and I treasure the time we share. But Joy, because she has a wonderful new home now with lovely neighbors that she can visit with more often. So today I am sending her a card to congratulate her on her new home and let her know that I am thinking of her and hope she is well.

Thinking of you with Butterflies

This card is probably my favorite out of the August Card Box. I absolutely love the way the butterflies are flying across the page. The simple, yet beautiful effect of their three dimensional wings is the perfect touch to make this card stand out. This card is available today for individual sale in our Etsy shop.

You can order this card individually and have your own custom message printed inside by following the link here.

Card of the Day 08/08/16

August is a busy month here, with lots of birthday’s and anniversaries. One of my favorite things about the Sent with Love Project is that I always have enough cards on hand for busy month’s like this. For today’s card I chose the Printed Daisy Card Sending You Smiles. As life goes by and we get older it’s so easy to get wrapped up in the day to day activities and slowly drift away from friends and family. So, today’s Sent with Love card goes out to my wonderful and talented cousin for his birthday. Though I don’t get to see my family as often as I would like, I’m always thinking about you guys and miss you all dearly. Hope you are having a wonderful day and Happy Birthday!

Card of the Day 8/2/16

Today I’m sending out the Printed Thank You Card in Brilliant Blue from the August Sent with Love card box. Building my blog and craft business has been both wonderful and challenging. It’s an amazing feeling to be able to turn your dreams into a reality. When you are creating a business on your own it becomes an expression of yourself. I usually face the challenge of having more ideas that I would like to express than I have hours in the day. While one day I hope to expand the business to a team a people working to build this wonderful community, right now it’s just me.

Thank You

That’s why today I am sending my Sent with Love Thank you Card to my Dad. You’re never fully working on your own when you have the help and support of the people you love and my dad has been so much help to me. Thank you for reading and editing every post that I have written. Thank you for dealing with the late night panicked phone calls from me because I have a post going live in 4 hours and I’m not sure it’s good enough yet.  Thank you for your encouragement and support, I couldn’t have done this without you.

Sent with Love Project

Do you struggle to find the time to reach out to the people in your life? Tired of the impersonal text messages that have overtaken every day communication? Rediscover a meaningful connection, even with those who live far away.Today I am so pleased to announce the official launch of the Sent with Love Project.

At The Looking Glass Craft we aim to take a step away from the faceless factory production of today, and a step towards the way things used to be made, with care and love. The Sent with Love Project was created to help recapture these values into the everyday reality in your life. Social media, technology, and the society of today seems to be reaching out and connecting people everywhere. But what kinds of connections are we creating? What has happened to those deep and meaningful moments that we used to share with others? They’ve been replaced with facebook updates. When was the last time you received a homemade card in the mail? Can a simple text message ever replace the depth of connection we used to have when reaching out to others?

What is the Sent with Love Project?

The Sent with Love Project is all about changing the way we connect and reaching out to others in a more meaningful and personal way. This month we will be releasing the first installment in a new series of monthly card boxes from The Looking Glass Craft. A handmade card and a short note can make such a deep impression on those you love. Our monthly card boxes will feature 14 unique and homemade cards each month to help you reconnect with the people in your life. Track your progress in taking the time to reach out, with the included calendar and sticker sheet. Connect with others who are making an effort to reach out as well. Share stories, inspiration, and motivation through a private facebook group available only to members of the Sent with Love Project.

Mini Monthly Card Box Option

We are also offering a Mini Monthly Card Box. This option is for those who are just starting on their journey of reaching out and are looking for a smaller first step. The Mini Monthly Card Box features 5 unique handmade cards each month. Start out by sending just one card a week to someone you love. You’ll be amazed at what a deep and meaningful experience it can be for both you and your loved ones.

Follow along with the community, through weekly updates and monthly card revels. We’ll be documenting our experiences with this challenge right here on The Looking Glass Craft each week, as well as revealing new card and product designs, available first to Sent with Love Project members.
