I'm old fashioned when it comes to thank you notes and change of address notices. I feel emails and tweets can be so impersonal, if you really want somebody to know how you feel, take the time to write it out by hand, seal it with a stamp, and drop it off in the mailbox, right?
For Christmas, my sister in law Steph sent me this handmade-by-her stationery set. She used an old cereal box to make the carrying case, old maps and blank white paper for the writing sheets, and hand stamped the backs of some plain envelopes to tie it all together with an overall vintage feel.
The set is so cute, and has been sitting on my computer desk long enough. Because pregnancy complications (and so it begins...) have me on self diagnosed bed rest for the day, I'm going to declare this Monday in particular, "catch up on your hello's and thank you's" day.
Won't you grab a pen and do the same?
