About Me!

Hi, I'm Sarah; the owner of this site.

Are handwitten thank you notes a thing of the past?  I hope not as I still enjoy receiving post and I don't mean the digital kind.  I created this site in the hope that you will also find inspiration for writing a good old fashioned thank you!  And just a little tip from me, a late thank you note is better than NONE at all!

Thank you for visiting. If you've found my site useful, I'd really appreciate it if you would share it with your friends and family on social media.
