I would say that now is a good time to start tracking down Mother’s Day cards so you’re not freaking out on May 9, and emailing us all Wah! You have to save me! Who makes e-cards that don’t suck?
Not that we wouldn’t totally help you out. But still — a little preparedness in honor of the awesome moms in the world?
I totally love the Most Lovely Duck Mother’s Day card from Foxy and Winston, just on sheer originality. It’s hand screenprinted in Brooklyn, NY (whoo!) using eco-friendly everything by artist Jane Buck, whose sensibility I just adore, and it’s exactly the kind of thing my own mom would keep pinned to her wall forever. Better yet, order a whole box set of notecards — Jane can mix them at your request, so you can get a Father’s Day card in there too.
Now if you happen to wait until the last minute anyway? You’re in luck. Jane would be delighted to scribble off a little note for you, stamp it and send it too. Just don’t ask her to try and forge your handwriting. –Liz
