Bumpy Road– Bereavement Christmas cards now on sale

Following on from an experimental forum post and enquiries on facebook, I got a good response to my designs for christmas cards aimed at the bereaved.

Like I said on the Folksy forum, to some, the words 'Merry Christmas' on a card when they are feeling anything but, can really matter. It can be difficult choosing a card for someone bereaved, or someone who has simply had a rough year. Having suffered a family bereavement some years back, I will always remember how much my mum, in particular, was touched by those who acknowledged our grief in their choice of card.

So after lots of brainstorming and thinking, Bumpy Road has been born, a range of sensitive greetings cards for those who, for whatever reason, find significant days or celebrations a hurdle rather than a holiday. On sale now at my usual price, do have a look.


  1. I think these cards are a lovely idea. I lost my sister the day after boxing day last year so Christmas this year is going to be tough.Getting a card like this would be very thoughtful.


  2. Thanks so much Harriet, I remember reading about your sister, I hope this christmas is a peaceful time for you and your family. It's been nearly 8 years since I lost my own sister. Sending hugs. x

  3. Having just found the ideal card see that there aren't any for sale. Not good.
