Greeting Cards Tell Micro-Stories

I recently discovered a line of greeting cards by Curly Girl Designs. Go ahead, click. Aren’t they darling? What captivated me, though, were the sentiments. Each one suggests a score of stories!

See what you can do with these (and PLEASE share in the comments!):

  • “One of the hardest things to realize,” she said, “is that our ‘Someday’ is right now.”
  • We must absolutely do what we love, or we run the risk of doing nothing at all.
  • What if our hearts and our hands shared an occupation? Oh, what a rich and wonderful life!
  • With hearts…the best thing you can do is invite someone in, make them some tea, and secretly hope they don’t break anything.
  • “I’m beginning to wonder,” she said, “if some of the stars I’m wishing on aren’t just airplanes.”
  • Any given moment could change your life.
  • Some people call them decades. I prefer to call them my “collected works.”

  • They could not remember a time until now that ‘forever’ didn’t seem long enough.
  • Just when you think you know exactly how it’s going, it gets even better.
  • Sometimes ‘right back where you started from’ is right where you belong.
  • There is little in life that could not benefit from a little love, a little time, and a stick of butter.
  • We will never be the same as we were before this loss, but we are ever so much better for having had something so great to lose.
  • I would like to volunteer to hug you until it feels better. This may take awhile. I’ll bring snacks.
  • I am fairly certain that, given a cape and a nice tiara, I could save the world.
  • She packed up her potential and all she had learned, grabbed a cute pair of shoes, and headed out to change a few things.
  • A really good friend makes you snort when you laugh, and will still hang out with you when you do it in public.

  • We all let people into our lives, but you will find that really good friends let you into your own.

And my personal favorite…

  • The world is full of people who will go their whole lives and never actually live one day. She did not intend on being one of them.
