In a fit of boredom (I've been sick for a few days), I created a lens at Squidoo about the handwritten note. If you have a chance, I'd love for you to stop by and, if you like what you read, give me some stars (at the top of the page). You can even leave a comment! click here to visit
Here's a teaser (more at the lens!)
Celebrate with Birthday Cards!
Birthdays are one of the few occasions that we still send snail mail across the miles. Unfortunately, often we get so busy that by the time the day has arrived we often haven't yet purchased a card to send and instead settle for a phone call.
An easy way to prevent this is to designate a few times a year in which you plan to buy birthday cards for that season. You can visit your local card shop, or head to EtsyGreetings for a great selection of handmade cards. Plan to spend some time and enjoy yourself!
If you want, you can even address and stamp those envelopes as soon as you get home. Then, as each birthday approaches, you will simply need to sit down to write that special sentiment and drop it in the mail!
