I love technology. I really do. To think I can connect with people all over the world by just pressing a few keys continually boggles my mind. The thing is, it's easy to press those buttons without thinking, isn't it? To just randomly send a photo or a :) or an lol just because we can. It's not that those texts don't mean anything. They do. But there is something very special about a handwritten note.
To me, writing a note by hand is different. It takes thought. It's very intentional. Even if it is just a few words, it takes effort. We have some handwritten love notes scattered around our home that have been in the same place for years. House guests passing through probably think we're weird, but that wrinkled, toothpaste-stained note stuck on our bathroom mirror always makes me smile. My Hubby took the time to dig up paper, a stamp, and inkpad, and a pen to write a few sweet words to me. That is more meaningful to me than a million texts I have saved on my phone.
I thought it would be fun to make a few mini notecards for when texting just isn't enough. The characters were cut with my Cricut machine. The cards, envelopes, and box I cut and folded by hand.
