A handmade greeting card show that spans four decades and much love given.
Greeting cards are first attributed to the Chinese for well-wishing of the New Year. Egyptians are also known to have used greeting cards. In the 1400’s, the Europeans began using handmade cards as an expression of love for Valentine’s Day and that continued from then to now. The first Christmas card was made in 1843 and in 1849 the first greeting card company was started by Esther Howland. It wasn’t until about a century later that the Greeting Card Association was officially incorporated.
What better way to express your love, and this show is a celebration of that expression. Ramona lost her mother one year ago and received back four decades of greeting cards handmade by her, for her mother. She wanted to share the cards not only as an expression of love but as an art form and also proof of an incredible human connection. It is an honoring of her mother, Marlene and the creative inspiration she provided. It is proof of an eternal love that exists in the real world.
Ramona’s father in law, David, will be joining her with his handmade cards he also recently received back from a loved one who has passed. The two shared an experience and an appreciation of how the love that was given, came back to remain.
Admission is FREE- the 1st floor of the mansion will also be open for viewing.
