I am thankful for you because….

Remember late last week when I asked you to compile a list of about 30 people for whom you are thankful?  Well, did you do it?  Good!  (If not, get on it, girlfriend!)
So, first, let me just say that I did not steal this idea.  I came up with this idea several weeks ago, and I’ve been saving it for today.  BUT – I got my newest edition of Better Homes & Gardens magazine this weekend, and they have something eerily similar….  {Is BHG spying on my blog calendar, perhaps???}  🙂
Since their pictures are prettier than mine, I thought I’d share theirs.
Ok, here’s what I want you to do:
  1. If you haven’t already done so, make a list of 30 people for whom you are thankful, and a brief little note to yourself as to why you are thankful for them.
  2. Get out your stationary, make your own cards, or got to bhg.com/freshthanks to download theirs – you’ll need 30 of them, duh.
  3. I recommend using your calendar for this part.  Schedule your thanks.  Assign one person on your list for each day in November.  Obviously, mail isn’t picked up on Sundays, so you can either send 2 on Saturdays or 2 on Mondays.  Whatever you want.
  4. Get to writing!  Make it heartfelt, honest, and sweet.  It doesn’t have to be long-winded or fancy, but I highly recommend sending hand-written notes.
Here are some cute Thankful cards for inspiration:
I found these on the Making Memories blog from a couple years ago, thought they were cute:
These are on Pebbles in my Pocket:
Ok, wow…Scrapcetera
And finally, from Inspired Blueprints:
I hope these ideas get your creative juices flowing.  And I sincerely hope you’ll take this challenge to thank those in your life who may really need to hear it.  You might even be surprised to receive a thank-you card in return!  🙂
And don’t forget, I’m hosting a linky party tomorrow!  You can link up anything crafty that centers on Halloween, Fall, or Thanksgiving.  Hope to see you then!
