I woke up today feeling grateful!
The stars so bright, I found myself getting out of bed at 2 & 4, just so I could go and get a better look. I gave in at 5a.m. got up and watched the sunrise.
How beautiful a day to be alive - focusing on LOVE.
Creating this years Valentines day cards, a somber mood towards getting close due to a deadly virus spreading across the globe - put me in a different Valentine mood. A realistic one. Wash your hands Valentine!
If you love me - you'll keep your cold to yourself.
I know we don't 'make ourselves' or others intentionally ill but sometimes WE SLACK on simple ways to keep ourselves healthier. Eat better.
Rest more and do not spread your germs.
WASH your hands. Thank you
I created these cards because I do care.
Education is key - sure let's have some fun Valentines day - let's keep it real too.
My son gave me the idea for the 'Kissing booth which I thought was very cute.
Several cards were created & are available for purchase!
>>>E mail me to find out availability<<<
There are cards for couples & cards for self love..
stay tuned for more & stay healthy.
I am forever grateful for those who show us LOVE
& for all those who work to keep us safe & healthy.
Well of course there was going to be a Nurse Bud! This Nurse bud is bound to make someone feel GREAT! This card would be a cute little reminder to your favorite nurse that they are LOVED & appreciated. Or perhaps You had a nurse -that went above & beyond... I know In my lifetime I've met countless compassionate nurses- far more than Dr.s ' (just saying buds...) nurses rock & are rocks. OR ou could give this to a Bud thats feeling under the weather... sure to make them feel better. You might even want to include a little medicine. Weeeeeeeeed!
They say the best medicine is "laughter" & yes it makes us feel good... a common side effect of cannabis can often be laughter - No wonder it's wanted to become legalized for so long & has... and will contiue to be.
I am forever grateful to all the nurses who help raise our spirits, look after our bodies & show compassion when buds need it most.
Weeee! It's ME bud! Artsy fartsy bud! Hee hee hee
I decided to paint me as a bud! I've painted a few friend buds this week & sent them off! Why not - some buds are meant to be. Do you have a bud that would be easily defined in a drawing- let me!
Heee Heeee it's sweet be be a little bud- if I do say so.
Today on the site 3 NEW Mushroom cards were added - it's morel season -nom nom nom... have you tasted a morel fried in Butter?
3 new bud cards were also added - can you spot them? Go Go Bud, Artsy Bud & Social media bud - because we all know one of them.
Enjoy the weekend buds - no matter what you do - do it with love & you will thrive.
Please continue to Plant the seed of Cannabis education.
I am forever grateful for paint - keeping me creative!
It's 'May 24 weekend in Ontario - time to get growing - It's the date to plant outdoors, hopefully! That's what I've been doing... followed around by my constant possy of pupps -it's a beautiful day in the garden!
Time to Plant/Garden & enjoy the day - arthristis slows me down but thanks to cannabis I am usually unstoppable - Gardens got to get done!
After a long day filled with lots of dirty work- it is nice to sit & relax with a joint & I also might enjoy a craft beer- usually 'orange' in flavour (created in Canada) OR maybe a glass of wine, were - it is the long weekend.. most of the time is's simply cannabis & tea- fine with me.
What ever you do (provided you are of age*) try some cananbis for arthritis your sore green thumb will thank you.
Until we meet again - Weeeeed! Enjoy the weedkend!
I am forever grateful for the flowers & the bees I sees.
*unless your child suffers from sever arthritis - then I suggest you consult with a dr. & try cannabis - first.
Weeee! Shake shake shake! Shake Your Booty!
Anything you can do WEEEEED can do better -well- I guess it depends on the indivudual bud. In my mind I have twerked to many a tune... in reality not so much. Arthristis and these joints - need a joint just to 'toodle aroud town'- never mind twerking. hee hee hee - reality. That being admitted, I certianaly won't let it prevent me from imagining a little bud twerking fun! Weeeeee! Imagination is everything... today imagine yourself happier - perhpas a little bud will help - I know it does for me & my buds, when not smokingit - drawing it keeps me giggling just as much.
I asked my son if he liked my little 'Tweaking bud...' he laughed, corrected me: twerking & tweaking- two very different things. Speaking of tweaking- lol... this site has been tweaked & 'almost' - completely good to go - with me being able to start to forcus on loading up new content. Weeeeeee!!
Wait & see this has been just the tip of the bud.
A few cards are already on the way to their new HOMES!
Weeeeee! & Thank you...
I am Forever Grateful for your support & smiles.
Are you feeling blue bud?
Awwwww... not me, probably because I smoked a joint for breakfast! Waking up can be slightly difficult for some - time to get the joints moving with a joint! Cannabis is scientifically proven to HELP with depression, PTSD & aches & pains - many pop a pain pill first thing in the morning - to help them carry on...
Don't just pill pop - do some research & RISE & SHINE.
Cannabis is legal in Canada!
Feeling blue - Cannabis helps.
Do you know what else would cheer soemone up?
Getting this sweet little Blue Monday Buddy card in the mail!
Hand painted one of kind!
I am forever grateful for medicine that helps us RISE up to BE who we need to be.
Thistiny bud is so sweet... weeeed!
What card do you send new parents to welcome their little original bud blessing ?
A wee original bud card! Weeeeee! Weeeed - what a wonderful time for celebration - the arrival of a new baby! ASister once shared' - in India Cananbis is enjoyed at the baby's welcome home just like we cheer here with alcohol. There is absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying cananbis Now legal in Canada - it's time it came out of the closet & is celebrated - as all thigs in life which help bring us joy & peace WITH no hangover.
Have you ever had a cananbis hang over? I guess I knina did - once, after a very potent edible - I woke the next day still high which was better than waking still drunk or violently hungover. Who can relate!? Who agrees?
It's time we welcome cananbis & cananbis education into our home - like this sweet little bud - the perfect baby card for new cannabis appreciative parents ;)
WeeeeD!! Welcome HOME sweet Bud!
Forever grateful for all new buds.
'Thank you for the wonderful start to Forever grateful! Kind words & 'likes on the Forever Grateful Instagram account & several emails having me feeling grateful I did finally decide to start this site - not that I needed any excuse to create cards - it's my prefered persistant passion.
What has me feeling Forever Grateful today is one bud in particular.. I provided a little sneak peek to a few select 'real life buds' & one replied he noted a few errors... (hee hee hee) I giggled & thought 'No kidding - as I'm no stranger to my own life long struggle with spelling & grammar errors but I have never let it stop me, thank goodness or I would have stopped long ago.
Instead my friend asked if he could 'Help...' & HELP he did.
Truly, I am forever grateful to my friend Ezra who moved me to tears after I logged on and realized the degree to which he corrected & improved this website... I was giddy with excitement & couldn't wait to do what I do - paint more cards! Ezra is one of the nicest, funniest, talented people I know & I am blessed to call him friend.
I get by with a little help from friends.. I am HIGH with gratitude because of a little help from this friend. Thank you.
I added 5 new cards to the site today! Look around - the pugnacious pug is my current favourite - BTW these little cards look terrific framed too!
Want to learn more about my photographer pal who travels the globe inspiring & educating others on cannabis with photos & kindness:
Ez was also voted one Of Canada's nicest Humans By Roots. I understand why.
I am Forever Grateful (with good reason).
HERE is the first official HUG-created-card from Forever Grateful... the first of many.
We can all use a HUG from time to time! A good ol' bear hug preferably, to make us feel loved and warm all over. This bear HUGs what ever you choose. I prefer NUGs or gently rolled nugs (as in joints!).
The inside of this card states: I come Bearing gifts!
Guarenteed to put a smile on someone's face, whether he's holding candy, a gift card or cannabis! We all like a big bear hug, I know I do, so this bear will do just that... only a tiny paper hug instead. You might inspire a return hug. It's so simple to remind others: Hello! Here's a hug! Who deserves a hug? You do!
Below are just a few ways your Bear Hug may be mailed. These bears are the cards ONLY, no cannabis is included. Americans interested have asked if I'd "mail a bear with bud?" I'm afraid that would STILL be considered illegal at the present date.
Let us hope cannabis legalization continues across the globe in order to end unjust punishment for many worldwide. Bears Hugs are $5.00 each or purchase 5 and get the 6th one free.
Would you like to recieve a Bear Hug card from me? With a note hello...
...if so, let me know. Send me an email, purchase a card and I'll send it to YOU - from me. I'll even put my custom seal on the back... Why not, everyone deserves a deluxe 'snail mail' experience!
I will be adding ORIGINAL NEW cards routinely as I continue to build up inventory and add to the website at a reasonably relaxing pace.
Forever Grrrrrrrrateful (That's a bear Grrrr)
It's MUSHROOM season!
Do you know your mushrooms? Some are deadly - not all are delicious.
Heres a cute little reminder card for your fellow mushroom fans and friends!
It looks lovely framed and haging in the kitchen or up at the cottage.
Please, take the time to know your wild mushrooms & NEVER eat any wild mushroom unless you are positive it is safe, as all around the world, people still die every year from ingesting posionous mushrooms.
It's a wonderful hobby and education for children too - be sure to look into joining your local mushroom society for an education & adventure.
Become a member of the Toronto Mycological Society & you'll be thrilled at all you wil learn about Mushrooms.
This card was created to share with my fungi family and to remind all: Not All Mushrooms are Edible. Order your mushroom card today by emailing me via the contact page in time to deliver to a friend in honour of your next forest foray!
News! Celebrations! Creations! Art demos & more! This is where you'll see the creative side of Forever Grateful Greetings come to life.
