tis the season for thank you notes

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, time with family & friends, and Santa was good to you!  It is crazy how fast it goes by.  I am definitely not ready to take my tree down...but I will give it a few more days!  Now that the frenzy is over and its time to pack up decorations, send thank you notes, and get ready for a new year... I am excited to share with you one of a few posts that I am collaborating with Tiny Prints on.  I know many of you are familiar with Tiny Prints...based on how many Christmas cards I receive that were Tiny Prints!

I have used the company several times for invitations but never realized they offer personalized stationary as well.  I warn you that if you love great stationary like I do this can be dangerous.  They have so many prints its hard not to find several that you love...for every person in your family.  Many even allow you to include photos...which is perfect if you were wanting to get a holiday card out this year but the time snuck up on you!  What I like most is that you can order as many or little you need.  I find myself wanting to switch up stationary often simply because there is so much out there that I want to use so this is a great way to be able to order a variety of designs.

You all know I love to follow the color forecasts with Pantone, so I thought I would switch things up a little this time and do a round up of some great options for Thank you cards (or everyday correspondence...I mean who doesn't love receiving a hand written note via snail mail!?) using Pantones Spring 2014 palette so that these may carry you through after the holiday season.  What do you think?  Do you still send hand written thank you cards?  I for one think this is one traditional etiquette that should stick around!

For the kids...I love seeing when kids write thank you notes....their handwriting is just so sweet! 
Placid Blue: It's My Party // Violet Tulip: Brushed Beauty

Hemlock: Vinbrant Stripes // Paloma: Slated State (these are postcards!)

Cayenne: Continental Flair // Celosia Orange: Lions Rampant

Radiant Orchid (color of the 2014): Stylish Shades // Dazzling Blue: Prancing Partiers (do you recognize the pattern!?)

I couldn't resist the Prancing Partiers (in Blaze)...I have always loved this fabric pattern by Dwell Studio and I mean the Cheetah Tribute (in Storm) is a classic!  Leopard is a neutral right?!  Because its in the details... do not forget that your pens are just as important!  Le Pens are the best in my opinon and come in so many colors.  If you're wanting to go gold...Pen Touch is hands down my favorite!!

Need some tips for writing the perfect thank you note...this article from Southern Living has great advice!
