Amy’s Custom Greetings was born out of the love that I have for giving a personal touch to gifts for family and friends. My first digital card came about after I had spent hours and hours making holiday cards, scrapbook style. I enjoyed the process, but life was busy. With two crazy boys and one more on the way I was a busy mom, not to mention my job as a teacher, wife, daughter, sister and friend. It was hard to find time to be the scrapbooker that I once was. I still wanted to give that personal feel to my cards but needed to do it in a more timely way.
The first digital card that I sent out for the holidays brought as much delight as my scrapbooked cards had and took me MUCH less time to create just one and make 100 copies. I started making digital invitations for events in my family and for friends.
Then along came Rebecca! Rebecca is a friend as well as a talented photographer, heading the same direction that I was…going digital. We hooked up and I started making birth announcements and holiday cards from the photos that she was taking. Here is a recent photo that Rebecca took of me and my newest lil’ angel.
Our business name, Guess How Much I Love You originates from a favorite children’s book of mine. When I became “Tiami” (my nephew’s version of Auntie Amy) I bought a mini copy of this book for him. My first son was born five years later and the little copy did not seem to be enough, so I bought the big book version. My three sons enjoy hearing this story over and over. We still try to compete with each other by coming up with uniqe and creative ways to prove that “I love you more!”
