Abstract

Now, more than ever, it’s important to be kinder to ourselves and increase the amount of self-care that we practice. The pandemic has changed the way we live, work, interact with people, and one cannot hold themselves to the same standards of productivity and positivity as before. This brought up the question, “How might I create a line of greeting cards that show the importance of self-care and kindness, while providing a link of closeness between loved ones?” I want my greeting cards to evoke the same feelings that a children’s picture book delivers, such as kindness, comfort, and reassurance. My hope is that these cards will provide encouragement and positivity.
