The Thank You Note Project

Sharing is caring!


Hello HoneyBear Lane readers!

 My name is Allison and I am super pumped that Heidi has been so gracious to allow me to “have the floor” (if you will) and share the Thank You Note Project with y’all today.

The Thank You Note Project is my experiment in living this year more meaningfully, more impactfully, and more appreciatively.
I have set a goal for myself to send one thank you note every day to a person who has touched me in some way. I truly believe in the power of hand written correspondence and hope to demonstrate its importance to others in though this challenge.

 I was raised writing thank you notes and I want to pass on this tradition of thoughtfulness to my children, teaching though my example.  I am documenting my journey on this blog, and it has already challenged and changed me in many ways.

Years ago, I was lucky enough to find a career I loved as part of a small team responsible for building up a completely new stationery brand called Expressionery. There I met my husband and in 2008 I left the corporate world to become a full time Mom. Combining my Thank You Note Project challenge with my former life as a stationery specialist seemed a natural fit.

Finding reasons to share my gratitude is truly reshaping my outlook on life. 
 It’s the most amazing feeling to end the day with a mental list full of reasons to write. Today, I couldn’t be more thankful to Heidi for allowing me this opportunity to share my project with you. Stop by some time! I’d love to hear about what you are feeling thankful for!
Many thanks Heidi!

No, Thank YOU Allison!!  What a great idea, to have a goal of one thank you note a day to show gratitude.  I’m so thankful to all of my readers for your comments, questions, interaction, and guest posts!  You guys rock!

    Very cool! I am subscribing to your RSS feeds now, and I hope to join you. I love writing thank you notes, and your daily reminder will cause me to stop and "thank" purposefully – not just when I get a gift.
