i have a habit of collecting cards. i buy them all the time, from stores, stands, flea markets, everywhere! my sister even got me a card organizing box for my birthday one year (which probably increased my card problem because i started buying them to fit into the specific categories of the card box).
one of the very first cards i ever bought without any intention of sending (i just wanted to keep it because it was so pretty!) was from a little gift shop in stowe, vt, by a small card company called story people. the whimsical artwork by brian andreas is paired with words that speak straight to your heart. i have since picked up their cards wherever i see them and have a whole bookmarks folder of links to their many wonderful prints that i would like to collect for my home. i have gotten them as wedding gifts, christmas gifts, and anniversary gifts and they are always so well received and appreciated. they also range from being wacky and funny to heartfelt and tear-jerking.
my favorites are their prints and cards but they also have a bunch of other fun gifts — you can get your favorite story on a mug, tote, frame, or even an apron.
here are some of my favorites from their collection.
one of my all time favorite cards, no more secret
this is the very first card i bought from them about 10 years ago
it now sits on my desk and reminds me to see the beauty all around me
this print hangs right near our door
and it makes me smile every time i walk by
i hope you’ll stop by story people and see what beautiful and inspirational gifts/cards/prints speak to you!
