thank-you-notes

for having a skyscraper of paper in my house, i should have no shortage of correspondence cards. thank you notes especially. but i'm admitting it right here, i suck at getting thank you notes out the door on time. the holdup usually comes from good intentions - i want to create something tailored to the person i'm thanking - but i forget or get distracted and then end up sending a lame e-mail, or worse, buying a generic greeting card from the grocery store. and then i feel supremely guilty about it. so that was my art every day mission today. i designed a set of thankies in varying colors to keep on hand. they are flat cards, about 4.25"x5.5", with the design on front and the back blank. big enough to say something, but small enough to keep the message short and sweet. i'm planning to test a few sets in the shop to see how they do. if they bomb, all the more for me! as for the white pegboard in the background, that is part of the display for the biz baz show. but i don't think it's going to stay tighty-whitey for much longer...

aimee, you never cease to amaze me. I need to do this too! ohhh, I am so lacking :)

JodyC said...

makes me remember what my grandma says. There's nothing like a handwritten thank you. something i too am lame at. Thanks ... it feels good knowing i am not the only one with good intentions and a slow pen.

Christine said...

I love your cards. And still in awe that you create art every day!! In AWE I tell you :-)
Have a great weekend

These are beautiful. Somehow I can't imagine you ever BUYING a thank you note. You could ANYTHING you make to use for a thank you note. But I really really like these.

those are gorgeous!!!

Wham Bam!

These are GREAT! I really like that they are paired with contrasting envelopes.

I'm SO bad with cards. Definitely empathize with you there. So having a stash around is the perfect solution.

they are great!
super great actually

AG Ambroult said...

yes! cards in your shop! I hope they do well :)

I am also not very good at thank you cards for the same reasons. Tragically (or maybe rudely) half of them never get sent out. sigh.
