Thanksgiving is coming (I know, whaaaat?!) and this time of year always makes me reflect. Not just on Thanksgiving, but the whole season, really…it all just makes me think.
When I sat down to creat this month’s printable stationery, I knew I wanted it to focus on gratitude. But the designs in my head just weren’t working for me on paper, and I realized that being grateful – and telling the people we love that we are grateful for them – is something we should be doing year-round, not just during the holidays.
So I ran with that and created some fun printable stationery that will tell your loved ones you’re thinking about them, no matter what the season!
Also, I’m super into polka dots and black and white right now. This would be so fun to dress up with some colored pens and some stickers!
I’ve been taking the Letter Writing Challenge seriously. Every month, I’ve been sticking a letter in the mail, snail mail style, to my grandmother in Oregon. She has Alzheimers and I don’t hear from her when I send them, but it doesn’t matter – I know she’s getting them and that’s what counts.
Side note: if you’re sending letters to a loved one with Alzheimers or dementia, be sure to include pictures! I always include pictures of my kids. I don’t know that she knows who they are, so I always remind her with a caption, like “great grand-daughter Claire, sixe-years-old.”
You can download your free stationery below. I print on regular paper, but use card stock for the envelope (although, I have used plain paper for the envelope before and sent it and it worked just fine).
It’s good to sit down and write a letter every now and then – what a wonderful way to remind someone you’re thinking about them, right? Actually – I got a postcard from my BFF today and it made my day!
