How 2 Blogs Collide, A Short Story.

Let me start with today's short story...
Years ago I was fortunate enough to find a job I really enjoyed.  I worked as a Stationery Product Specialist (yea, I'm fancy) for a newly founded social stationery company called Expressionery.  I completely enjoyed learning about paper and printing, about the 4 "P"'s of Marketing (I have a psych. degree), email campaigns, websites, working with new artists and creating and launching new products.  It was an exciting time in my life - I was working creatively and I was contributing to something important!  Buuuut then the real work came when I found out I was pregnant.  I had my baby and went back to work, but then our child care situation changed and I decided to quit this job I had come to love to try my hand at another full time role - Mommy.  My husband (whom I actually met through work) still works for the parent company and I still feel a strong connection with my former employer.

Fortunately, I have been able to continue to work with Expressionery.com in a couple of ways.  The first is by blogging about their new products as part of their Community Panel.  I am also the author of the Thank You Note Project blog that is sponsored by Expressionery.com.  Today, these two bloggy world's are colliding via one adorable little note card.

I present the Instant Gratitude Notes! (aren't they CA-UTE!)
These pocket size mini folded notes came about when we realized I needed a simple and quick way to share my thanks with others.  I started with this set.  They were the perfect size, super cute and they promoted the Thank You Note Project blog.
I have left these for superior waiters, thoughtful restaurant managers and helpful dry cleaners drive-through window attendants.  I keep a handful of these in my wallet, so I'm never without a note to share my thanks.  Ok, ok - I'm not just telling you all this to brag.  Beginning March 30th, you too, can have yourself your very own set of Instant Gratitude notes!  A set of 10 notes for $5 - you can't beat that price for 10 opportunities to make someone's day.  Expressionery.com is offering these mini folded notes in a selection of 5 designs, all personalizeable on the front and blank on the inside.
