That fine line between love and obsession...

Okay so for any of you that know me, you know about or have actually seen the obsession that is Taylor Swift cards. For the past two years my now fiance and I have sent them back and forth, and before we actually lived in different states we would just give them to one another for holidays or just because.

It all started with me seeing these beautifully sparkly cards in Wal-Mart and loudly sighing and announcing that I would just LOVE to have one of these cards for my collection. The next holiday rolled around and in my card Brandon wrote, "I'm sorry this isn't Taylor Swift, I couldn't' find any cards!" Well the next time I was at Target I found not only one but a WHOLE RACK of Taylor Cards. Just to be a pain I got quite a few and gave them to him to make my point.

From then on it's been war. And I benefit from both ends! He has an American Greeting Store near him in Chapel Hill so he has that leg up, but recently I found a website where you can personalize her cards. So currently I am winning!

However, the other day Bran asked me in a tiny voice, when are we going to stop buying Taylor Swift Cards?  While I was caught off guard by it, he has a point. The other portion of the story is the fact that we not only save and cherish the cards (okay so that's my thing but still), I actually frame them. Here are just a few of the frames...


We already have about 8 frames and at least 5 or 6 more to make with the cards we have. So it is with a heavy heart that I have come to realize that my Taylor love (aka obsession) may be coming to an end. We decided that if we see a really cute card that we will get it, but that we will start mainly sending normal mail.

So thank you Taylor Swift for making these wonderful cards that have become a wonderful memory in my home, and my homes to be. They have brought me lots of joy and have made long distance love, just a little easier to face. I can't exactly explain my attatchment to them, and while I am excited to be one step closer to not need to send mail from Tennessee to North Carolina, I am a bit melancholy to see the extravaganza coming to an end.

I will however stay on the lookout for her greeting cards for weddings... All is not lost ;) 


  1. Those are so cute!!! I'd be sad to see them go too! I'm definitely gonna keep my eye for those, I've never seen them before!

  2. She has some really great stuff! I do the same with my cards! I keep boxes and never want to get rid of them.


Tell me whatcha think!
