The Gloriousness of a Handwritten Note

Thursday, our first day back to Seattle, I spent part of the day at my desk in the shop office going through mail. The above gem made my day. Little beats a handwritten note. So my thought for all of us this weekend is to make someone’s day. Sit for a few minutes, or maybe more, and hand write someone you know a note. I love the idea thinking all of us will be doing this mannerly, kind gesture as a collective group. Cheers to thoughtfulness & kindness!



Ted’s Tip No. 38

20150512-062609.jpg Think of how good you will make someone feel when they reach into their mailbox and see a hand addressed envelope from you. Further that joy once they open said envelope and read your handwritten note. Only a few sentences is needed. More if you are so inclined. To feel thought of, loved–a simple act that brings so much happiness.



Field Study Eye Tests

20140226-065449.jpg I lived in London when I was in college for a bit, attending a study abroad program. I lived with the sweetest, wittiest, smartest family. That is where my love of British humor really began. They would have me buckled over in laughter at just life’s most simplest things–taking an ordinary task/story/moment and make it incredibly witty & funny. When these cards arrived recently, I just knew they had a British sense and sensibility. Created by Roderick Field, they combine simple black and white bold graphics with humor. A double winner in my book.
