Thank You Notes


You know you need these. Christmas is over. The new year is tomorrow and it is time to get out that thank you note to Great Aunt so and so before she gets upset that you didn't send one.

We seem to have forgotten about these in this day of emails, twitter and blogs. I've always sent them. Even before I made cards, I sent them. I think it is important as well as kind. I also think it is becoming a lost art. Don't get me wrong, I love, love, love the internet. Always will. But, you will never find me sending an e-card or a thank you over the internet instead of a proper paper card or thank you. I also still write notes and letters. Yup, I'm one of them. I guess it makes sense seeing as how I have a card shop, love paper and collect pens. But I think there is a grace and respect in a hand written thank you for a gift that you just cannot convey over an email.

So, this is the first in a line of Thank You card sets in my shop that you will find. There will be more in the next week or so as I make more to put in there as well as for me to send for my own Christmas gifts.

Happy New Year and be safe everyone!

Yep, handwritten notes through snail mail always mean way more now adays then an e-mail. Love the thank you card.

Just spent about 15 minutes at your Esty shop and blog. You are now marked as a favorite at both. I like to support SAHMs. Found you at Twitter.

Your sons are very beautiful boys. They look like they are healthy and happy.
