A box of love.

Look at what my aunt found while going through my Grandma’s things.

A box of all the cards I sent her over the years! (Can’t believe she saved them all.)

I tried to put some red on the cards I sent her. (Red was her favorite color.)

It’s kinda neat to see how my cardmaking has changed over time. (And how Grandma kept cards that I thought didn’t come out very good.)

Remember when House Mouse was popular? Still love these guys.

I made her a whole bunch of Texas themed cards when we first moved here.

Remember these Hero Kids? Too funny!

I love sending out Christmas cards. (Tried to come up with something fast yet clever since I usually make a bunch all the same.)

Thought I’d end with some Easter cards. (That All Night Media rabbit on the left was one of my very first stamps. I still have it!)

Sending a card really is sending love, isn’t it?

  14. Thanks for sharing these cards. Your father’s comment on your blog today made me tear up. It is exactly what my dad always said to me. He passed away a week after Father’s Day last summer (2010). He always thought my cards were special, too.

    What a treasure, Lisa and a reminder of your special bond. I have 20 years worth of letters and cards from and to my grandmother and I will always cherish them.

  17. Yes, I do believe sending a card is sending love. What a treasure to find the box. Sorry to hear your grandmother passed away. I’m glad you were able to spend time with her in Ohio. I no longer have any grandparents and it’s a feeling I still can’t get used to.

  18. This is truly a box of love. I’m so sorry to hear about your grandma, but so grateful for you that you had her in your life. You are very lucky. Hugs to you as you move through this time.
