The Handwritten Note

Posted May 8, 2012

One of my soap boxes is the importance of hand written notes.  I have blogged about it, posted it umpteen times on Facebook and will talk about it with anyone who will listen.  The beauty, significance and uniqueness of a handwritten note will not be going away.  Be it a thank you note, a note of condolence or a handwritten business correspondence there is something memorable about receiving such a thing in the mail.  Are you really going to save a text or even an email?  But a note on pretty stationery will be put in a drawer somewhere to be kept.  Well obviously I think this because a large part of Confections is stationery and invitations.  So I always get a warm, fuzzy feeling when the national media writes an article about the handwritten note.  Another good soul who gets it.  Thank you New York Times for a great article, "A Stunning, New Social Media Tactic: Handwritten Notes"
