I love cards.
I love looking at them in shops, picking out the perfect one to send someone. I have a stash of cards I love so much that I cannot bear to part with them. I have been known to mat & frame cards I particularly adore. And I love getting a card in the mail. Who does not?
My love affair with cards goes back to my childhood. My Aunt Marnie had a shop in my hometown on the Eastern Shore of Maryland: the Wayside Gift Shop. She had tons of wonderful cards in her inventory. Marnie used to let me spend time in her shop. I loved being there, helping out, and learning the business.
By the time I got to college, art was what I wanted to pursue. While studying for my degree in art history, I became passionate about photography. As an introvert, here, at last, was the medium through which I could truly express myself.
I have been making cards for my friends and family for many years.
People kept saying: “You should sell your cards.”
And so, in the Fall of 2009, GLITTERMOON CARDS was born.
Which would you rather receive: another impersonal Email — or — a hand-written card picked out just for you?
