You can make your own customized cards for the people in your life, did you know this? At cardstore.com I knew it was a thing, back in the day. You could go to a kiosk in the mall and make your own card, throw in some MS paint graphics and print it up one beepy line at a time. I know this because two of my friends surprised me one summer day in the early 90’s with a treat and a special customized card. There was a random picture and the text ran somewhere along the lines of,
“You need to get better. Those peaches won’t can themselves.”
I remember thinking it was awesome because it’s not like any card company out there knew I was spending my summer(s) in a steamy kitchen working as (unpaid) slave labor for my parents, canning bottles and bottles, and bottles of peaches.
That’s pretty cool, right? The card, not the picking, washing, and canning of peaches all the summers of my youth. That part made me resent my mother and her home-making-ness until I got old enough to appreciate the skills she taught me as a kid.
In fact, much to my chagrin, in the first few years of my marriage I found myself itching to make homemade jam and can the fruits and vegetables from my mother’s garden. Now I know how to can salsa and make my own bread, and I make decent rolls even though they aren’t anywhere near as awesome as my mother’s croissants. In fact, I even have my own garden and look forward to picking fruit at my parents house to make my own preserves.
I’m officially turning into my mother. And I’m okay with that because she’s a pretty rad lady. In fact, I’ll be lucky if I turn out to be even a little bit as wonderful as she was at teaching her kids how to make things, and work, and live a full life at the same time. In fact I wrote an entire post on why I love my mom.
This is the front of the card:
