Send a Handwritten Note

I was so happy to see this blog post on The Harvard Business Review's website. Here is a recap, "Personal written notes grow rarer by the day. But if you want to convey to a client, a potential customer, a colleague, or a direct report that you value your relationship, put down the Blackberry and reach for a pen. Emails, tweets, texts, or Facebook messages are easy to write and free to send. Handwritten notes mean more because they cost more. Drafting an actual letter involves selecting stationery, paying for stamps, and visiting a mailbox. They let the people know you appreciate them enough to pause for 15 minutes and put pen to paper in an attempt to connect and sustain a relationship with them."

This was adapted from “Handwritten Notes Are a Rare Commodity. They're Also More Important Than Ever,” by John Coleman.

The Artist Behind Belle Announcements

I specialize in custom graphic design services for personalized party themes, unique weddings and community events while also catering to non-profit organizations, schools and corporations hosting events. I endeavor to work closely with my clients to craft a design and print option that precisely conveys their message and style.

You can purchase a design I have already prepared and have available in my etsy store or you can request a new one. If your office is having a themed Christmas party, let me know! While I have the store available, designing specifically for a client is why I started this business. I wanted to make custom designs available to everyone and every budget.

Alabama Cheerleader Bow

I am always looking for cute ideas to spice up my girls hair and this little cheerleader is perfect for football season! I found it on facebook. It is from a local Huntsville artist so that is even cooler.

Although we are Mississippi State fans in this house, my parents are Alabama so if we have to choose, we go for Alabama. I love the houndstooth pattern that is so classic to the University of Alabama. It is so much fun to design around so much to my husband's distaste, I do end up designing more Houndstooth themed invitations and stationery than Maroon and White! Oops!

Anyway, love this cheerleader and will look forward to seeing the State version. Go dawgs!!
