thank yous

So I've been a little behind my A-game recently. Birthday season is officially over. All the parties have been planned and celebrated.

I plopped my tushie on the couch and had myself some R&R.

However, I decided I couldn't go another day without getting El Fuego's thank you cards sent out.

With some black (blank) cards and envelopes, white shipping labels and my laptop, this is what we came up with. They turned out cute in spite of the amount of times I cursed at my office word program.

We used a photo from El Fuego's skate party of the kids hangin' on their scooters at the skate park. Added some text and clip art. And, voila! Easy Peasy!!

Inside we created some fill in the blank notes also printed out on the white shipping labels. Then El Fuego filled in the names and fabulous presents he received. This is a win win for both of us. He only has to write the information that is different and I don't have to fight with him to write out his thank you cards. You see, my boy is not fond of handwriting anything. Sigh.

What a brilliant idea. I admit, thank-yous are one of my personal challenges and so teaching my kids to write them was really hard. I love your idea :)
