Let’s make it a happy new year!

Respect without religion.
Joy without Jehovah.
Peace without prayer.
Charity without church.
Harmony without heaven.
Sympathy without synagogue.
Love without lord.
Fairness without faith.
Good without God.
People on earth create peace on earth.

Please also see my journal entry Why I Am Designing Atheist Greeting Cards.

This is the text of the first in what I hope to be a series of atheist greeting cards. With these cards, I am trying to promote the idea that people do not need to hold religious beliefs to be kind, considerate, and generous.

The Red Bubble community has provided me with so much inspiration, motivation, and support. I deeply appreciate what we have here.

I wish everyone on Red Bubble happy holidays and a new year filled with love, creativity, and friendship.


I am a Canadian artist. When I was younger, I drew a bit with pencil, charcoal, and oil pastels. I started painting in 2009 when I got the urge to play with colour. I took a few casual classes, but I haven’t painted long enough to feel like I know what I’m doing. Being part of the redbubble community encourages and inspires me to keep working at it. I never get tired of looking at the incredible variations of talent on display here in RB!

    hey, this is very cool. I respect all beliefs and non-beliefs, as long as they do not hurt anyone! I understand what you mean, it is we the people, no matter what our religion or lack there of, show and share the love by our actions through our feelings. love, caring, sharing and respect…what it is all about . xoxoxoxo

  • Yes, that is exactly it! Thank you for your kind comment and I wish you a wonderful 2012!
