Someone sends you a birthday gift, an inspirational card when you are down, flowers when you are ill; do you follow what some may now call an old-fashioned custom and send a note, an email, or make a phone call to acknowledge their thoughtfulness?
I have never sent a thank-you card but I do think they are a thoughtful thing to do. I wish I was one of those people who send them, but it always seems cost and time prohibitive. I had intended on making personalized ones to send to all of my wedding guests. I wanted to send each individual a nice photo and card from the day, but I just never got around to it. I regret it to this day. Now when someone does something nice for me, I usually thank and tag them in a Facebook status. Probably not nearly as nice a gesture though.
I do but it often makes people uncomfortable (go figure). I sent out party invitations (for adults) this year and a few people felt they needed to send a written RSVP even though I'd said to rsvp to my mobile. Apparently it seemed very formal to people...
Yes, always, if required. That's how my parents' raised me!
AND I write it in Fountain Pen, with Blue Quink Ink, on beautiful stationery!
Howzat for being 'old fashioned'!
For our 'Wedding Thank You's', they were printed on same paper as the original 'Invites', so there was a 'connection'. The paper was pure white, & had a 'bubble' pattern. It was unique, & I loved it. It was perfect for us, so I'd made the right 'decision', the first of many!
Oh! grann, thank you! But ONE of the reasons' I write with a F/P, is to s l o w me down in my writing, so it IS legible!
Spent may years', at the beginning of my career, having to 'print' quickly, so my 'cursive' writing looked like a fight between a chook & a spider!
So I discovered how to. w r I t e. m o r e. s l o w l y. & it does work, for me, anyhow! Cheers!
