I'm a paper lover, with my moon in paper nerd and my rising sign in paper addict. It's with this acknowledgement I can admit I am having a whole new love affair with 8mm ideas.
A lot of people say they only send a card at christmas, or valentine's day, or on one of the other obligatory holidays when you think 'shoot, i gotta get a card!' But, I'm thinking about all the other days that come between those days, when people's mailboxes are stuffed with nothing but bills. Those are the days for 'oh man, i gotta send (someone) that card. it's sooo perfect.' That's why we here at 8mm ideas leave our cards blank inside: You know what you want to say, you just need the card to say it in. We believe the love/ snark/ juicy memories/ simple sentiment you write is just the right thing with the right card.
And that's what we're here for.
It just so happens, at this very moment, I'm so super excited about these next steps here at 8mm ideas: We've entered the 21st Century (very, very difficult for a girl who prefers to a typewriter to a computer, and pencil & paper to any button-y thing that's put in front of me) and have arrived at the book of faces.
That's right, 8mm ideas has a facebook page. I'm actually going to write here, right now, go to our facebook page and thumbs it up! Come on, it's crazy! We wanna celebrate with everyone!
And we think a great way to celebrate is to keep in touch with others and tell them something/anything/x's and o's, whatever it is on every day of the year. You know how much trouble the post office is in?! Couldn't we do a little to keep them in business? Over the years, come rain or snow, they've delivered letters and packages and, in our house at least they delivered coconut halves and license plates (yes, made into letters from my brothers). Someone in your life needs a card, and that someone or someones would benefit greatly hearing from you. So leave us a note in the comments, telling us who's day you plan to make. Stella will pick a name out of a hat this Friday and we'll send you three 8mm ideas cards to do just that with!
Thank you for all your support, dear readers, over the years. We couldn't do it without you!
