Families come in all shapes & sizes, varieties & personalities. We all have different interpretations of what makes a family and that’s what makes every family unique and wonderful. It seems like life gets busier and busier with each passing year, but time spent with family is irreplaceable. There’s no better time than right now to reach out to someone in your family and tell them that you love them, are thinking about them or miss them. Staying connected to family - near and far - is easier than you think. Make someone’s day and send them a Thinking of You greeting card, or a Funny eCard. If you’re lucky enough to have family living close by, throw a family dinner party to catch up with everyone. Remember, every family tree needs love and support to grow!

Movie Night Done Right!
Need something fun to do? Try pulling together a movie night. Who needs the theater when you have the comfort of your own living room? Whether it’s two people or 20, movie nights make a great weekend party and the ideas are pretty much endless. Figuring out details like movie themes, recipes, décor and party favors are all part of the fun. It doesn’t matter if you go low-key or extravagant, spending time with people who make you smile, laugh and feel good is time well spent!

Uggie the Wonder Dog!
Whether you’ve seen “The Artist,” or just tuned in for the red carpet at the Golden Globes, chances are you’ve seen the lovable and furry phenom, Uggie. With award season in full swing, Uggie is making press rounds and impressing A-list actors and stealing the hearts of millions of people around the country.
Well, this adorable little dog has had a special place at American Greetings since 2009, when he starred in his first ecards – Awwwsome Valentine’s Day and Birthday Kisses. Since then, Uggie has starred in many other ecards, including a Christmas ecard and a Woofy Birthday ecard. It’s pretty easy to see why he’s a fan favorite… Uggie’s owner and trainer, Omar Von Muller is a familiar face at American Greetings, as he owns and trains several other dogs that have starred in a variety of ecards.
Uggie has recently found a sidekick in a younger pup named Dash. Omar also owns and works with Dash, and he uses both dogs interchangeably on set – it’s safe to say that Uggie is showing him the ropes of show business and they are quite the dynamic duo!
Check out Uggie & Dash on YouTube
We are all super proud of Uggie and Dash, and hope they bask in their fame for years to come! Check out our newest Valentine’s Day ecard starring Uggie and Dash!

You’ve got a friend…
Henry David Thoreau once said, “The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend.” Friends are so important to us – they help us through hard times, laugh with us during better times, and let us be ourselves all the time. Whether you live next door to your best friend, or across the country, it’s easier than ever to stay connected. American Greetings makes it simple with fun postcards and friendship eCards, or take a few minutes and send a personalized friendship greeting card!

PS from the editor
Sometimes I have to remind myself to take a deep breath. Life can be crazy-busy – from work to family life and everything that happens in between, it can be easy to forget the little things, and I love the little things – hearing my favorite song on the radio, the way my two adorable pugs greet me when I get home, looking through old pictures, writing in my journal … Life is hectic and busy and fast, so it’s easy to get stressed, but sometimes you just have to say it’s going to be OK and P.S. – don’t forget to breathe! = )

Date Night – Done Right…
It seems like sometimes we get so busy during the week we don’t have time to connect to the people who matter most to us… so take a Saturday night off and make up for lost time. Date nights are not necessarily just about you and your hunny – take your mom on a date, or your best friend, or a co-worker who could really use a night out. Romantic or not, spending time with someone you care about can be just the pick-me-up you’ve been searching for. Our tip? Post a sweet card or send a fun invite to make sure the date is circled on their calendar and start planning from there. Romantic dinner, girls-night-out, stress relief – there’s always a good reason to get together!
