I’m Having the Best Time…

…appreciating people on a daily basis. I signed up with SendOutCards a few months ago. I recently heard one of the industry leaders speak and since then have been sending out two cards a day to people I want to acknowledge. Sometimes it’s a birthday card, a thank you for coming to my networking event (left), or simply I’m-thinking-of-you. I LOVE the reactions I’m getting and the fun I’m having getting creative with the SOC inventory and my digital images.

I want to share some of them with you.

I sent this one to my dear friend and wardrobe consultant Scarlett after she wrote an excellent blog post on  thinning hair–

And this one to my good friend Meredith who brought her documentary NAKED for a screening in my media room, where she provided wine, snacks and popcorn for the attendees–

And this one I created for a colleague who, after hearing my daughter Lindsey’s audio foreword to my book, sent me a photo of her daughter and said she hoped that one day that little girl would grow up and provide the foreword for her mom’s book–

Well, you get the picture. While I’m busily creating these fun ideas for the people I appreciate, I’m also helping to spread joy–a commodity in short supply these days.

I really do appreciate and care about so many people. I know how important it is to let them know, so am grateful for the SendOutCards ease of use and convenience. (Let me know if you’d enjoy hearing more about this cool service. I’d love to share it with you.)

    I absolutely love the SendOutCards, that you send out. I so enjoy the laugh and the great feeling I get, when I open up one of your fabulous cards.
    You are both creative and generous in your spirit of gratitude and I plan on using this service to give my clients and friends, a laugh and a thank you as well.

    Part of why I love doing it is knowing what a smile I’ll bring to you. I’m cackling away here. So glad you get it. Your business is perfect for this service. Let me know when you’re ready.

    how exciting to see that you are using sendoutcards! I joined in 2006, and am STILL having a blast sending cards (i think I even sent you one a while back to thank you for writing your book!)

    as a graphic designer I am constantly amazed at the cool designs the SOC artists come up with and the handwriting font… well everything is so cool right? It is a great company too, I heard Tommy Wyatt speak in Toronto in 2008. he was awesome, so funny and what great stories he has.

    This will be my 4th season for using the program for my holiday greetings and last year I felt honored to design a card for my son’s boss, a General in Iraq… he wanted to send a personalized card to the families of his staff serving in Iraq. they came out great and we actually heard back from several of the recipients at how touched they were by that simple, earnest gesture.

    I have been following your blog for some time and value the entries… always a source of inspiration for me.

    Thanks again for doing what you do and have fun making people smile!
