Roaming through the dictionary might not sound that fun, but it can sure spark the imagination. Add to that a few words hen-pecked on my circa-1980 electric typewriter, and here you go!

It's handy to have a stash of cards-for-every-occasion on hand. This order includes a six-pack of single-sheet and folded cards to fit the bill, plus envelopes. You'll get some "thank you's" and some "I messed up's" and some "you're amazing"-type cards in each set. Your order may or may not include some cards pictured here, but the themes and style will be similar.

I cut the cards to fit the envelopes. Most are around 4.25 x 6 inches (11 x 15 cm), but the sizes vary.

Seriously, people, why buy Hallmark when you can get original handmade whimsy right here? Plus these notecards are super-green: I make them out of used file folders and old dictionary pages. Even the envelopes come from a re-use shop, and are in perfect, unused-but-cast-off condition. I delight in creating small treasures out of things that others consider trash.

Keep them for yourself, or give the set as a gift. They'll come in simple but lovely salvaged packaging, suitable for gift-giving.

Some book pages I come across are absolutely choice, but I very rarely make reproductions. There's an endless supply of cast-off books and file folders in my city. Therefore each card is unique and individually crafted for you, and I get to practice the Zen art of letting things go...

Enjoy, and please come back for more.
