Hand-written notes.

Do you send hand-written notes? My mother and grandmother instilled in me from a young age the power of jotting down a few lines and sending them out in the post. They’re always so fun to receive. Such a simple glimpse into someone’s daily life but somehow so much more intimate than what we see when we scroll through Instagram or Facebook feeds. And so much more permanent! A few months ago I was looking through some old letters I received as a kid. I couldn’t believe my mom wrote me a letter from the public pool (!) while I was at sleep-away camp. Or that my grandma saved all her quarters in a jar so we could use them when we came up for the state fair. What sweet things to remember all these years later! I try my best these days to always send Thank You notes and I love mailing Christmas cards…sometimes birthday cards. But I’d like to do better with the “just because” notes. For inspiration I’ve been clicking around the stationery on Minted. Here are 6 (personalized) sets that might spark the need to put pen to paper!

Beaded Swag.Β 

Hello Friend.

Gilt Agate.

Wild Bellflowers.

Floral Bough.

Vine Monogram.

They each definitely have their own little personalities, don’t you think? I love the sunny cheerfulness of Beaded Swag but there’s something so sophisticated and bold about Gilt Agate. I would feel super classy sending that out to someone, haha! Which would YOU choose?
