{ Serving of Thanks }

Seriously now... where has time flown?!

Well... it's sorta kinda been a blur... it's gone so fast?! As most of you know work keeps me out of trouble most of the time. Homework, end of school year { xtra } book fairs, Mother's and Father's day luncheons, beach day, class trips, last day of school planning, etc.... There never seems to be a lack of TA-DA'S on my list!

Okay, so let's go back to the month of April when our daughter, Sophie celebrated another cake n'candle day! Phew... I'm maturing rapidly! These were the "thank-you" cards I created for Sophie to write her notes of appreciation to those who remembered her special day. What better way to "serve" thankfulness than on "hob-nail" milk glass the old-fashion way. Unfortunately... as a society we've misplaced our values along with etiquette when it comes to mailing a note of thanks. { I shoulder some of the blame here... } NO MORE! It's become increasingly important for our family to gravitate back to "grass roots" living on multiple levels these days.

We { all three } were happy with the outcome...

What a fabulous card! I love it! I too agree that even if we don't get the card from someone else, we send thank you cards for kindnesses and gifts we all receive.

These are all very great and beautiful crafts which are designed very creatively and with more innovative trends and ideas.
