Happy Easter from Kathy Davis!

F5097558

I just love the month of April, with its promising signs of renewal. And this year, both Easter and Earth Day happen in April, so there’s plenty to celebrate. After the bitterly cold and grey winter we’re emerging from here in Pennsylvania, it’s fun to see all the wonderful sights that accompany springtime, Easter and Earth Day. Bunnies and chicks. Pastel Easter eggs. Graceful tulips and fragrant hyacinths. In fact, just the sight of new leaves on trees and grass turning green again is enough to lift my spirits!

Easter is also a time to renew our connections – with family and friends we care about. To help you do just that, our collection of Easter cards features uplifting messages and art. Our Easter palette is especially joyful and expressive – from the soft lavender, aqua, pink and green of decorated Easter eggs to the exuberance of sunny orange and yellow daffodils and daisies, from the delicate beauty of whisper pale butterfly wings to pristine pink and white apple blossoms. You’ll find our cards in any store that carries American Greetings cards.

Why not pick up a few greeting cards to let those special people know you’re thinking about them? Sharing the joys of the springtime season is a wonderful way to brighten someone’s day!

Valentine’s Day Greetings from Kathy Davis

kdsval

As I heal from recent shoulder surgery, I have a whole new appreciation for the word “Love” (not to mention having the use of both arms!).  My husband Peter has been treating me like royalty (even more than usual), and my daughter Katie has been wonderful, taking care of me when he is away on business and being available to help me out during the day, in spite of her own busy life at work and at home. Friends, too, have been supportive beyond words, showering me with comfort food and gifts and lots and lots of words of encouragement.

So for me, there’s just no bottom to my reservoir of inspiration this Valentine’s Day! All I need to do is think about all the amazing gestures of love that I’ve been fortunate to receive. In fact all of us can find this kind of inspiration if we look around us. Think about the nice things – big and small – that the people closest to you have done for you. And don’t forget the little acts of kindness you receive from co-workers and friends. Why not remember everyone with a Valentine? A simple, heartfelt card is always well received, especially when it’s unexpected. A token gift – something silly from the local dollar store, a homemade treat or even a single piece of candy – is sure to bring a smile.

How about you? What inspires you this Valentine’s Day?
