Kathy Beekman, creator of Chuckle & Chortle, began collecting old photos in 2013 that made her laugh. She was already an avid collector of electric swing music, tea cups, bones, rolling pins, and quirky friends, and collecting these vintage snapshots quickly became another passion.
In need of a birthday card one day, she decided to create her own using one of the old photos and added a funny saying on the inside of the card. It was an instant hit and so she went to work making more provocative greeting cards for family and friends.
After a few years, she found that the recipients of these hilarious cards were saving and collecting them. Kathy decided then and there it was time to get serious. Voila! Chuckle & Chortle was born.
