our story

hello! i'm charlene ahanah, illustrator and greeting card designer. 

in 2007 i began printing beautifulthinks (click to view) on my home laser printer and selling in local stores and markets on salt spring island. in the beginning they were all sunflowers and granola and then as time passed they started to feature unicorns and f bombs...  i absolutely love making these greeting cards, they feel like my way of making change in the world, one beautifulthink at a time.

beautifulthinks greetings are artisan, hand finished cards with sensibility in every detail including their recycled envelopes and messages that advocate harmony, compassion and love. beautifulthinks are relevant, sustainably produced and memorable; these cards are perfect for sharing with all of the truly special people in your life... including yourself!

all beautifulthinks greetings are high quality digital reproductions of original watercolor illustrations andphotographs, created and edited at my island studio and printed locally on robust FSC card stock. each beautiful card is finished by hand and paired with a recycled envelope.

please share enthusiastically and let people know how you care for them.

be kind ~ have fun ~ think beautifulthinks!
