Greeting Cards, and Why Little Dressers are the Best*

September 11, 2013 — 1 Comment

Little known fact, in 2008 when I first heard of Etsy’s existence I opened a shop and sold greeting cards. I know, super random right? It didn’t last long, but I still have like 30 greeting cards that I made and haven’t used. In fact, I have a whole drawer full of greeting cards that I rarely send. So wasteful right? Well, what can you do? The road to wherever is paved with good intentions (or something like that).

I love my little dresser turned nightstand (my semi-failed DIY of it here and here), especially because it has extra storage for the random things I own.

The bottom drawer holds my eclectic stash of greeting cards, a mix of ones I made myself and ones that were purchased.

Do you want to know the most interesting thing about greeting cards? They are completely useless unless sent. Yeah, I know, bummer. But the nice thing is that we live in a world where there are lots of options when you forget your sister’s birthday or your cousin’s graduation.

Take for example The Greeting Card Shop (check out their ad on the top right!), not only can you buy a card, electronically write a message in it, but they will send it directly to the recipient for only the cost of a stamp. Pretty slick right? Obviously, a homemade or hand written card is more personal, but any card is better than no card when your friend three states away has a baby.

Meanwhile, I’m just over here glad I have a little dresser to hold all of my good intentions.
