Update 12 November 2018

I have been finding it far easier and less time-consuming to post on my accompanying Facebook page so if you’re on FB, join me there!

Purple Silk and Satin Thank You Greeting Card
Purple Silk and Satin Thank You Greeting Card by FirstNightDesign

I’ve always been a little dubious about the efficacy of Twitter and Facebook when it comes to promoting my wares. Perhaps I should think again for no sooner had I promoted this Thank You Greeting Card on both networks, than I sold eleven customised copies: a delightful turn of events.

“The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude.” Friedrich Nietzsche

“We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.” John F Kennedy

“Take full account of the excellencies which you possess, and in gratitude remember how you would hanker after them, if you had them not.” Marcus Aurelius

“Blessed are those that can give without remembering and receive without forgetting.” Anonymous

Take care and keep laughing!



This new design is dedicated to you, yes, you!

A day I was looking forward to and rather dreading has arrived and that’s because you have followed and liked First Night Design on this blog, on Facebook and on Twitter to the extent that I can’t keep up.  I’m delighted, of course, but….

It galls me that I don’t have the time or the stamina to thank you all individually and explore your blogs and Facebook pages and websites.  Forgive me.

Saying or writing ‘thank you’ was a big thing in my family.  Even now it seems wrong to say ‘thank you’ by email so even if no one else does, I shall be buying not a few of the above greeting cards!

Bless you all for your support and encouragement and comments.

Oh, by the way, the woman in the photograph is the Hollywood actress Norma Talmadge (1894-1957) and is from The Library of Congress.

Director Clarence Brown once called her “the greatest pantomimist that ever drew breath.  She was a natural-born comic; you could turn on a scene with her and she’d go on for five minutes without stopping or repeating herself”.*

Take care and keep laughing!
