Hello, January! This month was named for Janus, the Roman God of beginnings and transitions, the guardian of exits and entrances. He is usually depicted as having two faces, since he looks to the future and to the past, reminding us that we are not defined by our past, we are prepared by it. January is a new door we can walk through to a world filled with new energy, new ideas and new beginnings, bringing us closer to where we want to be this time next year.
January is typically the coldest month of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, but you can warm the hearts of friends and family with sunshine and smiles from Blue Mountain. Are there people you’d like to thank for making your holidays brighter? For you, we created the new “Holiday Gratitude”–a heartfelt message of appreciation delivered with beautiful scenery and music. For a lighter touch, “Barbershop Quartet” is a fun way to express your thanks. We chose some inspirational quotations to be hand lettered for sending on birthdays, anniversaries and just because you’re thinking of someone. For a great birthday laugh, we designed a greeting featuring Chihuahuas dancing to the well-known instrumental, “Tequila.” With our jazzy take on “Auld Lang Syne,” you can be the first to wish them a happy new year filled with the promise of new beginnings.
Let’s start something today that our future self will thank us for. A fun way to start the New Year, is with a beautiful image. Here’s our free background download for January – enjoy!
Happy New Year, Everyone!
