hand-written thanks

You know what I love?  A good old fashioned hand-written Thank You note.  My mother trained us well, after receiving a gift, we must write a thank you note.  Admittedly, my sister is much more disciplined at it than I, but I definitely try to continue with that tradition when I can.
  We often get so lost in the virtual world of e-mail and blogging that it's so nice to have something tangible- a card.
I'm on this rant because a dear friend and fellow designer, crafts person, mother, & all around awesome woman... just sent me the most amazing THANK YOU gift!
Melinda of Rincon Road who creates hand printed accessories for the home and who also writes Farm Fresh, where she documents her experience of raising kids & her growing design business, had this great idea of a valentine thank you in a box.  Here is a snap shop of my treat but if you want to see the process in more detail- look here!

Obviously she has good taste and a killer sense of style.  Her block-printing products are featured in publications and selling like hot-cakes on Etsy!  You know you want to go look!

Thank YOU Melinda for being such an inspiration to me.  I love my hot tamale box!

When is the last time you sent or received a hand-written card?
