How do we keep in touch with loved ones during self isolation? It’s a time to pause and reflect and to ensure friends and relatives know we are there – even at a distance.
I am sending my love to all of you and hoping that your challenges are manageable. I remind myself every day of what I believe to be true – that good things will come from this.
The new normal…
I wanted to give you a quick business update now that we seem to have settled into the new normal.
For a while there it seemed as though sending things through the post was a no-no and that it was putting postal workers at risk. I was undecided as to what to do with my business. I wanted to do the right thing.
So I closed the studio a couple of weeks ago and brought everything home.
At the same time I really would like the business to survive this. And it’s made me think long and hard as to why I do this. I could be doing all manner of things to make money so it’s definately not about the money.
Keeping in touch
I do this because I want people to connect. My aim is always to enable people to connect with other people. To say hello. I love you. I’m sorry. Happy Birthday. I get you. Go for it. In a way that would not be possible otherwise if it wasn’t for my cards, gifts and illustrations.
So I’ve thought and thought and I’ve taken advice from Royal Mail and spoken to customers and I’ve decided to keep going the best I can. Because people even more than ever need to be able to tell loved ones and friends that they are there for them. Even if it’s at a distance. And an isolation birthday really does need some cards. And virtual hugs are more important now than ever.
Send a card direct
And if you’d like something sending direct to the recipient the just pop their address in as the delivery address.
If you’d like a message adding inside the card I’ll happily add that in too – there’s no charge. Just pop a note on your order and I’ll print it on the inside of the card.
We need to keep in touch with loved ones during this mad time. I am wishing you all good health. Stay well – what a tale we will hopefully have to tell at the end of all this.
