At some point in the coming week, each of us is going to have to sit down and write thank you letters. What a wonderful season it’s been! Some of us love this next step (me); some of us dread it (my husband). So this year, I got an idea. We were so successful with sending our Christmas cards online and making wrapping paper out of blueprints that I thought we should cut down on our waste one more time: we sent thank you emails.
I know what you’re thinking. How lame. How impersonal. But not so! I think it’s one thing to say, “Oh I love it!” It’s another thing entirely to show it. After all:
A picture is worth a thousand words.
So we decided to roll up our sleeves and keep green.
- We pulled out the camera and started snapping photos with us and our new treasures
- Martin downloaded the shots
- I got busy sending personal thank you notes and attaching photos
What about at your house this season? The comment section of this series has included so many wonderful ideas from all of you. Now you wanna spill a few more thoughts? Any green or fun ideas for sending your thanks?
If you decide to share digital thank you cards with your loved ones, won’t you share the love and tell them about this little article? Happy holiday recovering!
