A birthday should always be a special occasion for the celebrant. Being the highlight of the day, they may want to wear something special and, of course, you want them to feel as good as they can! A birthday only comes once a year but throughout this day you can show your love and appreciation of your best friend by sending him/her your most sincere birthday wishes. The same is true if you are sending birthday wishes to your brother or sister, or anyone else you love or appreciate. Remember: it always lies within your power to make someone’s birthday a truly special occasion.
Among the great symbols of life and hope in the world, the sea remains one of the most powerful. Ever constant but always changing, powerful, vast, and beautiful, the ocean is a suitable image to mentally conjure when one imagines what best symbolizes the fixed-but-fluid universe. The stars are another great symbol of life and the universe, so it’s comforting that there are stars in the sea as well… starfish. All is connected. Maybe two best friends can be imagined as a pair of starfish on a beach, under a sunset sky, facing the starlit night together. We make wishes on stars of all kinds and hope they come true for our loved ones on their birthdays.
Friends are precious, sometimes more than we would ever dare suspect… if angels are the best, the brightest, and the most beautiful manifestations of pure love we can imagine, it truly says something that we consider our best friends to be their equal in worth and brilliance. When we express our fondest birthday wishes for a friend, we contact the angels in some small way: the true angels of our own loving natures and the friendship we share. That’s well worth celebrating.

When it comes to birthdays, do you think the card matters as much as the gift? We do, and never want to be without the perfect handmade birthday card with a personal message. DIY birthday cards are one of the things people often keep longer than the gift, so we always want to make sure to give cards that are extra special and thoughtful. What better way to get a card like this than to make one? Well, this was my thought, anyway. However, when I went looking on Google and Pinterest for handmade DIY birthday card ideas, I did not find exactly what I was looking for. There were lots of free printables from big sites like Greeting Island, Blue Mountain, and even American Greetings, but those lacked the homemade touch I was going for. See, I make lots of my gifts, so adding a cheap looking printed card just won’t do. I was looking for inspiration and step by step tutorials for cute cards to make at home, ones I could be proud of. After the free cards, I came across more tutorials than I could count from sites trying to sell me scrapbook supplies and die cut templates. I understand you have to make money, DIY people, but please, don’t try to sell me stuff to make a simple greeting card, or at least show me I can make one without it. Not nice when you just want some birthday cards you can actually make! I was not looking for some frilly thing that came off looking like a scrapbook, anyway, thank you.
