Announcement    HisLensMyPen... cards from our hearts to yours

After talking about it for years, my husband and I have joined creative forces. By merging stunning Nature photography (his) with with spot-on inspirational messages (mine), we create greeting cards that reflect universal relationships and experiences.

It starts with the image, the "inkwell of inspiration." When I pick up my pen to write the tagline, I first have to answer the questions: What is this photograph saying to me? What truths about life does the photo reflect? And most crucial, How can I put all of those thoughts into 20 words or fewer? I love the challenge and hope that you can feel this love and excitement as explore our shop.

Send "New Venturers" to an entrepreneur. Or a new retiree. Or even a newly-divorced friend in need of a confidence boost. "Soar with Friends" is a great birthday card for a great friend. One client sent it to her travel agent along with a thank you gift for organizing a girls' getaway.

In addition to our inspirational greeting cards, we also produced Picture a Conversation -- a set of prompts based on these images and others. Each prompt in this 25 card set features an image on the front and 3-4 questions on the reverse. Click on the Featured Item at the very top left and you're on your way to having conversations that will move, thrill, and enlighten you.

Every time I choose on of my husband's photos, the adventure begins again.
Thank you for stopping by and joining us on the adventure.

HisLensMyPen...addressing the heart not the calendar

After talking about it for years, my husband and I have finally joined creative forces. By merging stunning Nature photography (his) with with spot-on inspirational messages (mine), we create greeting cards that reflect universal relationships and experiences. On our shop's front page you can read more about the genesis of His Lens/My Pen greeting cards.

What makes His Lens/My Pen cards different from other all other cards?

1. Each card's message has been written specifically to reflect what the photograph is saying visually. Consider it a translation, like French to English but in this case image to word.

2. His Lens/My Pen cards can be used for multiple occasions. "Take Flight" makes a great card for graduation, birthday, anniversary, or to inspire someone turning over a new leaf or beginning a new venture. "Take it One Step at a Time" is an important message for our impatient loved ones. Or for someone in recovery. The possibilities are nearly endless

3. His Lens/My Pen cards zero in on realities that other cards don't even touch. The "comfort" card featuring a camouflaged duck is perfect for validating the gifts of a shy child. "reconciliation " can help break the ice when couples and/or parents and their teens are struggling to see eye-to-eye.

So there you have it. Thank you for visiting. Please don't hesitate to get in touch; just click on contact the seller.

"Creativity" is the conventional term for the kind of brain that flits like a bumblebee from one gorgeous blossom of an idea to another….. My husband is a terrific photographer. Why don't we join creative forces? I'll write meditations to pair with his glorious images. We'll call it His Lens/My Pen.
