Giveaway: Hello and Thanks

Not very long ago I saw a quote that said, "Never get tired of doing little things for others. Sometimes those little things occupy the biggest parts of their hearts." And it got me thinking about how, in this age of email, facebook and twitter, something as simple as receiving a hand-written letter in the mail can really brighten someone's day. And that got me thinking about how, even though I have the ability to make my own letterpress stationery, I rarely actually used it other than to thank someone for a gift. I decided I needed to change that!

So I created this little set of cards for me and added some to the shop: two cards that say "thanks" (because you never know when you need to have a thank you card handy) and three cards that simply say "hello".

I've printed them in dark blue and turquoise and also in two shades of purple.




And I'm going to make it a point in the coming weeks and months to start sending little hand-written notes to the people in my life just to say hi and hopefully brighten their day.

To hopefully brighten your day, I'm offering a free set of the purple hello and thanks cards to one of you folks out in blogland! To make sure you have no excuse for sending them, I'll even include the stamps!! Just post a comment here before next Thursday (April 14) at noon EST, and I'll announce the winner on Friday, the 15th. And if you decide to use one of them to send a little note to the IRS, well, that's your choice! :)


  1. Beautiful cards and colors! I'm with you on how nice it is to receive a handwritten hello and thank you. Pretty rare nowadays actually!

  2. I LOVE these! One of my very favorite things to do is to practice the "lost art" of writing snail mail letters.
