Gimme some more!

I want paper cards. Lots of them. From good friends. From parents. From best friends. From sister. From friends I no longer am in touch with. From cousins. From acquaintances. From uncles. From friends I made through unconventional ways. From aunts. From that random person I have spoken with just once. I want paper cards.

Going over them is a joy I simply cannot describe. There is no other explanation for the silly grin on my face right now. The only thing I did in the past ten minutes was quickly glance through some of the paper cards I received in the past few years. Sadly though, the number of paper cards I receive is decreasing drastically every year. I hate e-cards :-(!

I think I just stumbled upon the perfect activity for a lazy afternoon - leisurely browse through received paper cards :-D. They serve as an awesome window to view the past. But for now, I better get back to cleaning my room which started it all! I really think I ought to be given some award for happily coming up with innovative ways of side-tracking whenever I am forced to do some boring chore.

Very much true. E-cards however animated they are can hardly match the personal touch of
hand written cards. I wish I had more time to write cards to ppl on occasions.

I did that this time when I went to India. It was such a wonderful experience going down the memory lane :-).

But now I have grown out of cards. In fact in stationary/book shops etc I tend to completely ignore the area set out for cards :-). Maybe I have really grown old ;-). I would love to get a letter (ONLY personal) though.

yeah, papercards are so cool. only prob. is to preserve what u receive.
plus there are 100s of ways to place papercards in that to give as a surprise gift.
and ofcourse the personalised ones ( handwritten, handdrawn)
