Win a set of 6 Custom Notecards from Pretty & Personal Papers!

This giveaway is now CLOSED. The winner is Peggy Gorman, Congratulations Peggy! Thanks again to our friends at Pretty & Personal Papers, we look forward to working with you again!

˙·٠•●♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♥●•●•٠·˙˙·٠•●♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♥●•●•٠·˙˙·٠•●♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♥●•●•٠·˙





Today's words of inspiration often times remind us about gratitude. This being right after the holidays, you may need to send out special notes of Thanks for all those lovely holiday gifts you received this year.

I like to send out New Years notes to family and friends as well, thanking them for being a big part of what made the year that is ending special and sharing New Year's wishes for the year to come!

I am a stationery addict. I'm sure it stems from having penpals since elementary school. I can't pass a stationery store without going inside. I also love stickers, seals and stampers for this reason!

Finding 'just the right' paper, cards and stationery is sometimes an art, and when you can't find it, you sometimes consider going custom, that is, until you see the prices of custom orders!

Thankfully there is someone out there who loves paper as much as I do. Not only does she love paper, she is incredibly creative and is the tour-de-force behind Pretty & Personal Papers, Tricia Richner! You can find Personalized Greeting Cards, Mommy & Custom Journals as well as Individually designed and hand made monogrammed note cards, special occasion greeting cards and even Home Decor at this welcoming Etsy shop! Custom cards with amazingly affordable pricing, fast turnaround & delivery and excellent customer service. I was very impressed with the custom sample notecard I received from Pretty & Personal Papers, it incorporated my favorite color combo, and pattern with of course, a butterfly!

Tricia has put together an amazing giveaway for us,  and I just can't wait to share.
