Eleanor Greetings is now open. Check out my video and shop online.
As I also continue to follow my passion of writing. Let me tell you a story about………
This women would stand on a grocery store aisle for 45 minutes, admiring the design of the smallest subtle flower printed to the beveled corners of lace not forgetting to bring her attention to the loud boisterous colors of the funny cards. “What is it that you’re staring at”? Is the look the store associate would give her as she would carefully walk the aisle, as if a hall monitor. She eventually warmed up to the idea that the lady was simply adoring greeting cards.
Forty-five minutes seems a long time doesn’t it but not in that women’s world. In her world forty-five minutes was twenty minutes with time to spare. You may be wondering how would the woman know it was forty-five minutes that it took to look over stationery. Well, you see, it was always the same amount of time that she would spend in a store looking at greeting cards, paper, and wedding stationery. It was like her mind was a switch and right at the mark, she’s off, deterred from the real reason she came to the store in the first place, she makes off in a hurry.
There was something that made her come to life as she would pick up textured cards purposely just to run over it with her hands, taking in the smooth finish. How she enamored by seeing the tiny particles in the cotton cardstock. Oh, and please don’t let it be linen. The wedding stationery took the additional time. There was nothing she loved more than the look, feel, and creation of stationery.
This woman, she was so indulged when it came to stationery, especially the premium quality of paper crafted from earth’s resources and not to mention earth’s recycled resources. It all just seemed a faint step away from this woman.
She would go into art stores and office stores just to look and all too many times she purchased just because, well, it never felt like she had enough no matter how much space her single shelf could hold.
This woman is a collector of what’s dear to her. There is so much ardor when she picks up a piece of fine linen cardstock or smooth satin finish. There was such an unsettling excitement when she discovered the luxuriousness of cascata cardstock. For what I can say, she sure loves her stationery.
She loves all the things that she can make from it. She loves the fact that she gets to hold something tangible that gives her such an intangible reward, happiness. Pure joy.
This women started producing personal invitations and cards and wonder of things 15 years ago, just mainly for family get to-gathers and holidays that type of stuff. She always found a reason to send a greeting card out. She would sit at her home office desk and think who she could send a card to, who’s heart could she touch.
This woman has collected so many cards within 15 years that she could start her own online store, of course with her own work that is and might I add this woman is, well you guessed it. It’s me.
Allow me to say that I have moved forward this year with opening my own stationery business and it won’t stop there. “Eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, neither have entered into the heart of man what God has prepared for me” because I sure do love him.
Consider shopping at my online store this season for a very limited stock of holiday greeting cards. The ship will soon set sail with other seasonal greeting cards, wedding invitations, journals, and more. For now, I’m putting it out here.
A special thanks to those that participated in my soft launch. Now it’s open.

Check out my original piece of move forward written in 2021.
“Don’t look at where you’re at, focus on where you’re going.” We all have work to do.
You were created in God’s likeness. Everything that God created was good. Don’t demote yourself with bad feelings or negative thought. I believe that there is goodness in all of us. Think and say good things about yourself. Open up your mouth and give it a try. Even if other people don’t see it, what matters is what God see. Don’t live to prove yourself to other people. Put away the notion that you are not supposed to have big and the best. God is good! He created you to enjoy his goodness and there is not a specific time you have to wait and do it and there’s not a specific age either. Goodness is in your heart. Joy is in your spirit. You can enjoy both at anytime. It’s a good thing to enjoy the goodness of God because that’s what he wants for you. Even in chaos seek out God’s goodness. And no matter how you see it or anyone else may see it, what he created in you Was Already first loved and liked by him. No matter how many likes or loves you get. Lol. Be blessed my friends.
Man chooses to limit man but God chose to give you freedom. There is no limit with how you can be blessed or be a blessing to someone else in words or deed. With your spiritual gifts don’t choose to hold people back make the good choice as we are to follow our good shepherd and help one another.
I was ever so inspired by my winter citrus Christmas cards this year to create my very own orange berry fall-like wreath. Now I get to enjoy both pleasures of orange citrus in the fall and winter season! I normally have a traditional pumpkin-leave autumn wreath each year but was all too happy to follow in the footsteps of my all-inspired charm of an idea. If you enjoy florals like me, do-it-yourself crafts or even just desire to make your own unique masterpiece, like say, a wreath. You will enjoy this video.
With this green thistle berry wreath pinned with a combination of autumn sorts and vague hues of fall, I can already tell this will be one of my favorites, maybe yours to.
Join me if you please. Grab your wreath and accessories and take a momentary walk with me as I embark on creating a fall orange berry wreath. You can do it now or anytime!
