The image featured is a greeting card on the cover of the new book: Handmade Greeting Cards.

Handmade greeting cards are the focus of my recently completed book on Amazon print & Amazon Kindle (it’s a 5-part e-book series on Kindle) featuring 168 photos of greeting cards, centerpieces, and artwork created with love and joy over the last 12 years! The book is entitled: Handmade Greeting Cards: A Picture Book of Cards & Centerpieces for the Birthday, Holiday, and Every Day! This latest book is a compilation photo album. It was truly a joyous blast from the past to compile old photos of handmade greeting cards, centerpieces, and canvas-based artwork that I’ve made over the years.

Handmade greeting cards are a passion of mine, and most of my cards feature a plush toy, stuffed animal, and unique art designs. My inspiration in creating cards and centerpieces originated from a desire to give my grandmothers unique gifts, instead of towels or bedroom shoes. And this picture book contains photos of cards and centerpieces I’ve given them and of more recent cards for sale in my Etsy store. I invite you to share in this anniversary album with me, and I wish you Greeting Card Joy!

Say Happy Birthday to Handmade Cards!


This oil painting is entitled: “Jaimee’s Custom Colors.”
I created this piece about 12 years ago, and it hangs above the piano in my living room today!

Listening to your first visceral, gut, inner, and deep down instinct is key!

When I created the canvas-based oil painting featured above, I remember throwing the paint brush aside, because it wouldn’t allow me to make the swirl patterns I wanted.

You see, I create art in my way, on my terms, and for my own fun! And you can do the same. Where is the fun, or the wonder, or the surprise in giving yet another super-store/pre-processed/pre-packaged gift???

That friend is unique. That co-worker holds a special place in your work life. That family member’s spirit brings you joy. So why give them another birthday card that speaks to none of those qualities???

Send a handmade birthday card with a happy face, happy colors, and a happy message!

Homemade greeting cards allow you to say ‘happy birthday’ in a meaningful way.
