41 done. 59 more.

I started my bucket list 3 years ago and one of the things I’ve wanted to do is to be able to give away 100 handmade cards.

I started doing handmade cards 4 years ago when my friend, Emma introduced me to a different world of doing arts & crafts. This included going to Michael’s on lunch breaks with printed coupons to buy for papers, punchers, embellishments, stamps and more papers! (Those were the days…)

And that’s how it became a part of my bucket list. I know giving cards is very rare nowadays. Most people just do everything online because it is more accessible. And that’s the reason why I challenged myself to never stop making cards to remind people that “old school” cards are still worth keeping.

At some point, I stopped making cards but it doesn’t mean I can never go back. As I wrote in my blog yesterday, I got inspired with the movie Julie & Julia. I mentioned there I want to write a book someday. But for now, I’ll do cards first.

I counted how many cards I had made (including some which I helped others to make) and I’m so happy to say that I already made 41 cards and gave all away! So that means, 59 more to go!! Before I left Philippines, my friends from church gave me their own handmade cards to help me complete my bucket list.

So thoughtful of them! So I have something to start on since I don’t have my tools anymore. I left everything back home. Huhu. But it’s okay. I know eventually, I’ll be able to start having a new set of tools and materials again.

Completion of 100 handmade cards resume!!! Aja! Aja! Let me know if you need a card, I’d love to make one for you. 🙂

Here are the handmade cards I made:
