    Sure Do

    After holidays or when someone does something nice/thoughtful. I like to acknowledge the kindness others have done for me and they are fun to write. Plus I like getting handwritten notes... why wouldn't someone else?

    What a Coincedence..

    I just finished writing my thank you cards last night. My birthday just passed and I got gifts from all my family members. I got over $500 in cash and over $100 in gift cards, so of course, I had to handwrite my thank you cards. I think it's unkind and inconsiderate to type your...

    Love Is In the Letters

    There is something so intimate about handwriting - every curve and angle is a piece of you, a breath of your endearment for each person you deliberately address with ink or lead.   Knowing that someone took the time and effort to provide such a tactile memento for me has...

    Wax.

    There is something to be said about the act of handwriting anything these days.   Besides EP and university notes; everything I write is handwritten.  When you write thing's down you are more thoughtful about what you are writing, you choose carefully what you put...

    Out There In The Dark Is A Lady With A Light, Bring Her To Me So I Can Light This Joint

    One it comes to me I still write handwritten thank you notes because I'm just a old fashion guy that still keeps his traditions at heart. I'm not like these kids of today who run around with they're I-phones, I-macs, I-pods, or I-whatever that is out today. I still keep it real...

    Personal Element of Handwriting

    I enjoy sitting down and writing when I have the opportunity, most of my communication is through typing and e-mail and i sometimes fear I have forgotten how to form letters with a pen on a page.  I also think in regards to thank you letters; it is something I was always...

    I Do Too

    I think it is rude when I send a gift, especially a wedding gift, and I don't receive a thank you card. Many times I order online from a registry and if I don't get a thank you note, I'm not even certain my gift was received. It is common courtesy, I believe. I wrote thank you...

    Holiday Thanks

     I'm glad I'm not alone.  When I was younger, my stepmother (aka Santa)put thank you notes and stamps in my stocking so that I had all the resources needed to show friends and family members my appreciation for their thoughtfulness.  It's a habit I'll never drop...

    Being Nice Matters!

    Writing thank you notes is personal, it's polite, and it shows people that you really appreciate what they have done.  Everyone likes to feel appreciated.  I was raised to write thank you notes whenever someone did something nice for me.  It is the way to...
