Parker's friend ZOE turned 3 yesterday and she threw a huge party in his class - pizza, cupcakes and he came home with a bag full of many surprises! He had a blast and was sugared up for the rest of the day - no nap for him! Zoe is a pretty sophisticated 3 year old so I made her some personalized stationery. A few different designs and wrapped up with a purple stuffed monkey & care bear crayons and she is set to scribble away a few love notes.
I can remember when I was a teenager, my Mom gave me my own monogrammed letter pressed stationery. It came in a flowered box and it was so cool. I was very selective as to who I would send one of the coveted notecards to because I never wanted to run out! As I typed this, I looked in the back of my desk drawer and here it is! The flowered box from "sir james printing" 20 cards remain...too bad that I didn't keep my maiden name. I probably never told you Mom how much I loved the stationery, so Thank you!
Is it still cool to give stationery as a gift in the age of e-mail?
