It is 2020 where we find ourselves in trying and uncertain times. I hope anyone reading this is doing well and holding up the best you can.
I have been using my time to do a lot more walking (my dog loves it) and gardening one of my favorite things to do, although some think it is a lot of work it brings me a lot of joy.
We all can work remotely so it is easier for us to stay up and running, so different than when we started back when it was dial up, yes that long ago!
Over the years we have been fortunate to be a part of so many celebrations whether it is newborns, save the dates, wedding favors,
Parties, hall of fame, pretty much anything on a card(with exceptions). Which brings me to one of my favorites, therapy dog cards I am a huge animal lover have been my whole life I call them our awwww cards I am sure many of you can relate. I see it as a celebration of kindness bringing a little joy and sunshine to those who need it most.
This is a personalized business and our lives at CSC are not much different than yours. Since we design the cards we have interactions with everyone whether it is through email or on the phone. You would be surprised to know we have become friends with some of our customers. We have listened as you share your stories from celebrations, triumphs, milestones and yes heartache, whether it is an email from a mom asking us to provide cards for their walk a thon whose daughter is only three years old has had several surgeries to remove tumors that are all over her little body or the call from a dad whose wife was not able to call their son died at only 2 ½ years old of cancer. I use to volunteer at a golf tournament where the money raised was for Make a Wish. Little did I know that experience would be so helpful in the trading card business I always felt honored we have been able to help during those very heartfelt painful times.
Finally my message is simple… Keep celebrating! we will get through these trying time some better than others but together we will…. so keep breathing, living, dreaming and moving forward.
I did not want this to be a sales blog (don’t we get enough of that?) about purchasing cards quite frankly I don’t like those I would rather share stories and connect that way. I have so many cute cards I could post but for this time here is my stray/rescue spoiled rotten dog Thunder…. A story in itself for another time.
Be well, Pam Baker
