My Mom is the best at letter writing.
Often it’s a thank you note but many times it’s also just a hello, how’s it going or thinking of you message.
It’s thoughtful and kind and personal and I’ve kept many of them over the years.
I’ve also had a few friends who are awesome at writing notes or letters and really make an effort (specifically Paolo and Kelly Rae). It matters and it gets noticed – especially these days where it’s so easy to send a text message or some other technical correspondence.
Jotting out a few kind words to let someone know you are thinking about them is just cool.
There’s even a TED talk on the lost art of letter writing. And you know I loved how she talks about the legacy of handwriting.
Today we’re sharing the two pieces of personalized stationary we recently received from Minted as part of their 6th Birthday Celebration. We’ve partnered with Minted in the past for Christmas cards and wall art and we’re big fans of their quality and service.
TIPS FOR MAKING IT HAPPEN
ONE | Have your stationery out and available. It’s kind of like my sewing machine. When it was put away I barely ever used it but once I had it out and more accessible in my office it gets used all the time.
TWO | Have a pen you love. My favorite everyday pen is a Uni-ball Vision Elite.
THREE | Know that just a short note is perfect. It doesn’t have to be a novel or something extravagant or a special occasion or perfectly crafted. Just a simple hey, you crossed my mind today can be all that’s needed to lift someone’s spirits or brighten their day.
