It’s about the little things. The intrigue of a far off postmark. That moment of suspense – the touch of fine paper, excitement unfolds, a message, a smile, a warm heart. Read it again, handwritten with thought and always signed with love. Just because…
Sending a lovely thank you note is an art that’s simple to master and one that shows you care.
In society today, it is all too easy to send a thank you text or email, but there is simply nothing like the joy of receiving a thank you note in the mail.
Not only does it make the person you are writing to feel important, it also says a great deal about you, your manners and of course your sense of style!
Make writing thank you notes a joyous experience, rather than a painful task that you resent. Here are some pointers for getting yourself ‘thank you note writing’ ready:
• Have stationery to hand, then you can concentrate on writing your letter, rather than on buying the stationery itself
• Make sure you like the stationery you are writing on! I find the words tend to flow much more easily when I’m writing on lovely stationery
• Find an uncluttered place to write - the kitchen bench amongst the unpacked groceries isn’t the most relaxing of locations, so find somewhere else
• Use a good pen – there is nothing worse than getting three quarters of the way through a thank you note to have your
pen make splotches on the paper and you find you have to start again. All inspiration can be lost!
• If you’re not sure what to write, doing a draft is a great idea
• Write from the heart and you can never go wrong.
