Most of us think of holidays as one of those few days our employer actually pays us to stay home. We all know the big ones: New Year's, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas. And yes, some employers are a little more generous but most likely you'll have no more than 7 days a year that you consider a holiday. Depending on your religious beliefs you may add a few more to that annual list, and find that you're up to a dozen or so.
For a day to be considered a "National Holiday" it needs to be declared so by Congress. And then of course we have the "commercial holidays" that we all love, which in effect are simply days that have become popular over the years. We all love them, but for some of us that just isn't enough. Organizations, corporation, and even loosely connected groups of people can "declare" a day for any reason they choose. Some of these days catch on and become popular with the general population, some remain only recognized by their creator, and some fizzle out and become a mere memory after only a year or two.
The point is - Every day, somewhere someone is celebrating something.

October 2, 2010 ~ World Card Making Day

     Founded by Paper Crafts magazine, World Card Making Day began in 2006 as National Card Making Day. All a person needs to do is walk into any craft store to see that the possibilities in card making are endless. 
     However, for those of you not inclined to make your own card from scratch, you have a great alternative.  As a contributing artist on Greeting Card Universe  I'd like to invite you to take a look at some of the beautiful and unique cards you can find there.  One of the very nice things about this site is that you can personalize the inside of the cards with your own sentiments or even photos.  And, if you don't find exactly what you're looking for, many of the artists are willing to do custom orders.
