With 2017 well underway it's time to re-assess what I think is important to me, and focus my energy on this for the next few months.
One thing that I enjoy doing, and will make an effort to do more of in 2017, is to put pen to paper to let my friends and family know how important they are to me.
Nothing beats the excitement of receiving something in the mail that is not a bill. As much as I like to send notes to those I love just because, it's always nice to send them a birthday card with a personal message in it too. The only thing is that I seem to be getting more forgetful with people's birthdays and seem to miss more and more.
Don't get me wrong, I am not adverse to the Facebook birthday reminder but I can't help but think that it removes the personal, warm fuzzy feeling that a hand written card or note gives the recipient. Besides it's also too late to send a card by the time the Facey reminder guys my screen.
One Melbourne mum has the answer. With more Australians dusting off their best pens and jumping on the old-school band wagon of hand writing a letter or card, Amy Williemsen-Bell has launched a greeting card company with a difference.
Little Sentiment (http://www.littlesentiment.com.au/) gives the best of both worlds and is an SMS reminder service as well as a unique online store for birthday cards. Unlike other online card sites, Little Sentiment customers still have the opportunity to hand write their sentiment to their loved ones. This gives the personal touch that other e-cards companies miss.
Little Sentiment offers a range of high quality, Australian made greeting cards. Customers are given the choice to purchase cards individually, or subscribe to a Forget-Me-Not package.
Amy says: “For years, people across the globe have been sending written greetings. It’s time to bring this tradition back. For me, everything and everyone matters. Receiving a birthday card in the mail and knowing that someone is thinking of you means so much more than a text or a “post”. It’s an even nicer feeling to be the sender.”
