The Power of a Hand Written Note



Hand-written notes are so hard to come by these days. In all honesty, we’ve all grown accustomed to sending a quick text, email, or voicemail. However, I think there’s something so romantic about hand-written notes. I’ve always been a big advocate for sending people cards; whether it be or a birthday, a going away, or a thank you. So, in this week’s blog, I wanted to share the importance of taking the time to send hand-written notes once in awhile, and feature the work of one of my wonderful friends, Paige Westfall!


When I was a kid, I used to get handwritten cards all the time. Whether it was my birthday, holiday, or a thank you for a gift I had been give, I always seemed to grow up around this idea that a hand-written note can be so powerful. Even today, I write thank you notes for every single cast and crew member when I close a show. I think it’s always so important to acknowledge everyone’s hard work.

I have a few good friends who I still send birthday cards to, and I’ve written cards for a few coworkers of mine who have left recently. What I find is that nine times out of ten, people are shocked that someone takes the time to do this. I know I still love getting them, and I hope the people I still send them to do as well.


A theatre friend of mine has a business, where she creates hand-drawn greeting cards. She sent me a few thank you cards recently, and I’m amazed at how gorgeous they are! So, if you’re anything like me, and still love giving and receiving hand-written cards, check out Paige and her company Desert Flowrz Design! And remember, a hand written note is such a nice way to let someone know you’re thinking of them. It really does have the power to make someone’s day!
