Fathers Are Just as Important as Mothers

It is easy to forget Father's Day - it just does not get the same kind of attention that Mother's Day gets. I know this for a fact - and statistics support it.  I see it every year when far fewer cards are sent on Father's Day than Mother's Day. And I don't believe it is because we as a society do not value to amazing contribution that fathers make in the lives of their families.  I do not know why as a society we are less likely to celebrate fathers than mothers on their special day.  But I would love to hear from you: how do you celebrate the father figures in your life?  And Dads, how do you want to be celebrated?  You can comment here or send me a mail through the website at www.ojolie.com.  Got any special requests for Father's Day cards for next year?  Tell me now and I will give them full consideration.
Happy Fathers Day   2012

In the meantime, I am happy to share this touching video with you, just a reminder for us all in our busy daily lives to take a moment to really connect.  We don't need a special day to acknowledge the wonderful people in our lives, but sometimes these special days help remind us to do so.


Wishing You a Very Happy Father's Day this Sunday!

The Art of Manliness


I would love to create more ecards that appeal to men. I was therefore thrilled to find a blog dedicated the Art of Manliness with an entry dedicated to nothing less than the Art of Letter writing. Yeah! What a great find and follow up to my blog entry on The (Lost) Art of Letter Writing.

Great tips for you guys out there who might sometimes wrestle with getting pen to paper - or words to keyboard :) And as woman I can honestly say there is almost nothing more manly than a man who can express himself.  And with Father's Day coming up, son's everywhere might need a little inspiration for celebrating their father.
