Valentines Day cards by Eileen Dreams

Last night I went to hear Jonathan Christian speak at the Fraser Valley Social Media (#FVSM) meetup and he challenged us to write in our blog twice a week. Well, I would rather do anything than write and I said to myself “No flipp’n way”. I like the process of blogging because I get to post my pretty pictures, try out new photo

sliders, play with WordPress, do some updates, SEO, check out some new themes, and waste time creating new graphics… You get the idea; do anything but write. Which is why I have been so sporadic about writing my blog. But then Jonathan said “Write as though you are writing to your favourite Uncle”. Well, his “favorite Uncle” analogy hit home with me because when I create a card I always create with someone special in mind.

When people ask what I do, I tell them I make cards. Although what I really make is people happy. It is always why I can’t help but smile when I think about the cards I make. What I am really thinking about is someone’s reaction when I give them a card. The whole time I create a card I am imagining my sister, mom, dad, aunt, bff and now that Valentine’s Day is approaching – my lover, reading my card. I guess you could say I am a professional people pleaser except creating cards sounds a little more socially acceptable.

So Jonathan, keeping in line with my people pleasing obsession, I am accepting your challenge to write a blog weekly even though I would much rather scrub a toilet.EileenDreamsValentine Card
