announcing: the gratitude campaign


Thank you notes are important to me. For the most part, I'm pretty good about sending them for the obvious occasions. One of my personal resolutions this year is to send more - and not just when they're expected. Perhaps, a note to one of my favorite servers, who always remembers us, even though we only visit Southern Oregon a few times a year. Or, maybe a little 'thank you' to the massage therapist that went 15 minutes over my allotted time. You've got to admit it's a winning situation for everyone involved.

So here's the idea...

The last week of each month in 2010, I'll post a giveaway offering two boxes of 'thank you' cards from two different designers. A comment to enter, any old comment - I want to make it easy and accessible for people to get involved. Two winners announced the following week. The inaugural post for January will feature boxed notes from Two Trick Pony and Egg Press. Are you loving it so far? If so, please spread the word!

  6. Great idea. I always write a thank you note, and had it drilled into my head from a very early age that it was the proper way to behave. Saying "thank you" just warms your heart.

  8. there's nothing like the unexpected thrill of receiving mail that isn't junk or a bill. to be thanked for something is an extra special bonus!

  12. I love this!!! I'm planning on leaving thank you notes with all the random people who are deserving of thanks in my life too, but I was just going to print out some simple little business card type thank yous. I love that these would be real cards {and such awesome card companies!}. And I would love to help you spread the word!

  13. Good idea!

    Thank you cards are a tradition that needs to be prevented from becoming passe. All "couth" gentlemen & gentleladies should have a box of fine Thank You cards- plus an excellent writing utensil for accompaniment- to hare their gratitude.

    Thanks for doing this Carina!
