How to Personalize Someone Else’s Words
We can’t all put our feelings into words the way Shakespeare or Browning did. But I think reading quotes can give us those “ah ha” moments, when we think, “Yes, that’s just what I want to say.” When a quote captures your message, use it and add a personal touch. I love to do this by making my own cards. If you’re limited by time or crafting ability, buy a pretty box of blank cards, print a quote typed on your computer, cut it out, and insert it inside the card with double-sided tape. Going to that little bit of extra effort means so much. I think you’ll also find it saves you time and money, as opposed to making a trip to the store each time you need a birthday card.
These are from vintage ephemera:
“Tis fashionable, my dear,
to remember the day
but forget the year!”
“From my heart, this birthday greeting
Is the fondest I can send;
May happiness abide with you always
And good fortune be your friend.”
We are one in love and joy,
In fondness and in worth,
And so as one we celebrate,
This day, your day of birth!
Thank you for your tender love
Of which you’ll never really know,
How happy that you’ve made me,
And how much I love you so.
