I just received a most generous box today of card-making supplies for the Thank-You-Note-athon from Stamp Fanci in the North Hills. They are the largest rubber stamp store in Pittsburgh. From my research, they are THE place to go to for card-making. With what she provided, ANYONE can make a nice personal thank you note, that really is a gift in itself.
Last week I had a lovely conversation with Carole Davis,the owner of Marjie Allon Fine Stationery, in Shadyside. Before I said more than a few words she was off gathering me a wonderful supply of thank you notes for the Thank-You-Note-athon portion of the event. She told me she was previously a teacher and that naturally supporting a literacy cause was close to her heart. All the while she’s adding more and more beautiful cards to the supply. Plus a few journals, perfect for a gratitude practice.
Early on, Maria Polinsky of the Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council asked Half Price Books for some donations, and we got our start on a beautiful supply.
Be thinking of all the people in your life you are grateful for, and come join us to reflect on gratitude, hear some heart-opening music, write a few thank-you notes, and enjoy good food and company.
