Not really looking for "advice", as that is going extremely well.

What I'm looking for is some words, a poem, or something eloquent to put on a Christmas card. I bought my daughter and girlfriend each a mani/pedi gift certificate so they can go together. They get along great, but I'm not great with words, and I'm looking for ideas of how to express how they are both incredibly important to me in different (non-competing) ways.

I know what's in my head, and I don't really plan to cut and paste some lame Hallmark thing, but just need to see some ideas to spark my own creativity.

Anyone know of a place to look, or a decent google search to point me in the right direction?

(Admittedly, I may be doing my search wrong, but I tried a few different things and didn't come up with anything.)

Creativity starts from not being afraid about others judging you.

You want to write something for two important people in your life. Just let the words flow from the heart. If it doesn't read like literary genius, who cares? I believe they will see your genuine love through your words.

If it makes it easier, you can speak you words into a recorded first (computer), then transfer those words to paper (many programs can do this automatically where you just need to edit).

Write down what's in your head... no matter how awkward or sloppy. Just put it on paper. Then read it out loud to yourself and start editing. Just look at it every day for a little bit and see if you need to tweak it some. It will be well crafted by Christmas and it will be your own words too.

Good luck!

Don't do a poem.

The best thing you can do is not think, just write in the card what you like about her and why you're happy with her. Write without thinking, then don't read it again and give it to her.
