Can I Give You a Little Advice?

I’d like to share with you a new post card series I’m working on that’s all about good advice. Some of you might remember the Aussie Slang series that a did a while back when my daughter was planning and anticipating her trip Down Under. I really enjoyed making and sending those post cards and told her I would send her more if she gave me a new idea or theme.

She found this blog and asked if I could adapt this idea to post cards. Yes! I really like these post-it notes left in random places with messages that are short, positive, and universal. Although the blog refers to them as "things we forget" I think they're really just plain old good advice.

These are the first few I’ve done. I’ll post them as I create more and I welcome your ideas or suggestions for future cards. What is the best advice you’ve been given or wish you had been given when you were younger? Leave me a comment and you just might see your advice in a future post.

I just love your blog and the wonderful pictures you post. Your art is fantastic and always makes me smile :)

This comment isn't the best advice I've been given...more the opposite, the MAD things your parents say to you when you are young.

'Don't come running to me, when you break your leg!'

It's the kind of advice that you just can't do any thing with!!!!! As you get older you remember the advice that your parents sometimes said was just MAD! Just a thought for a new series of cards for you ;)

Keep up the great work and inspiration.

Best wishes
Billie :)

Great idea Billie! Maybe I should add a series for bad advice and mad advice. :)
