Scribble me an I Love You
If I had to contribute one bit of mom wisdom to the new parents of the world, it would be to always have a stack of kid-friendly cards at the ready. My favorites have been the ones with space for your own children to scribble a drawing or scratch out their names, and make it personal. Even when the gift is not. (What! Sometimes I run out of ideas after the 15th classmate birthday party in a row.)
So I was thrilled to learn that a friend with a family-run letterpress studio developed the brilliance that is letterpress Scribble Cards
. Instead of using an ink color to highlight the debossed hearts or candles or butterflies, they keep it pure white. That way your kid can take a crayon (or eleven) right to the hand-pressed card and make it all his or her own.
With Valentine's Day coming up in a month, grab a set of the heart cards
shown here to give out to teachers, sitters and friends. Then add a set of the candle Scribble Cards to get you through birthday party season. Which, as I'm discovering, actually never ends.
There's one more bit of mom wisdom for you. -Liz
