        Comments about A YEAR OF GRATITUDE:

        I purchased these cards for my annual Favorite Things party. Booker T. Washington said that the happiest people are those that do the most for others. Closely related to that is being grateful for what is done for us. I love the concept--one note per week for every week this year--and a small journal to log where I've sent them. Gracious living at it's finest.

                          I bought these cards as part of a gratitude themed gift (combined them with a gratitude jar). They are lovely and packaged beautifully. In a world that has become so digitalized, it is nice to see that the art of the handwritten thank you card has not been forgotten.

                            I bought this as a gift for someone else and was so enamored with the concept, that I seriously considered keeping it for myself. Then I opened the box. The journal is too small to write in. Although the box makes a nice, presentable gift; I would prefer they would put more money into a more practical sized journal--one with a spiral binding so it would open flat and enable writing. I wish there were a quote about gratitude in the thank you notes. They are plain.

                                With Thanksgiving approaching, we're all thinking about what we're grateful for. But, of course, gratitude goes beyond the holiday season. This collection of cards, envelopes, tips, and a journal helps you celebrate what you're thankful for all year long. Does it have your vote?

                                This is fantastic! A lot of people don't know how to write Thank You notes (myself included) and it's a good tool to help us remember those who we are grateful for, even if it's not Thanksgiving.

                                Why made in China? We make wonderful paper and print beautifully right here in the U.S. Still, this is a wonderful kit that would be handy for many of us.

                                We always SAY we are going to BE more Thankful...well now we can- AND put it in writing! It is very important to tell those you care about WHY you are thankful for them. A written note is worth 'a million' words ;)

                                Can't we get something similar made here or at least not in China? And prove the paper is from "responsible source"

                                I am a big fan of the handwritten, mailed, personal touch. I think this would make a nice graduation gift to help a young person getting a start in life learn good habits and make writing all of those graduation thank you notes less overwhelming.

                                I don't know, it just seems less meaningful when it's prepackaged. Whatever happened to people using their own creative resource (their mind)?!

                                You shouldn't need a box of fancy thank you notes to express gratitude and you definitely shouldn't need someone to tell you how to write a meaningful thank you note.

                                I agree with other posts that it should be made in the US and not China! Second it's a little to simplistic. Neat concept but I wish it had a different more cheerful color pallet and made in the USA.

                                I think this is a fantastic product, but I am slightly disappointed that it is made in China. I am a graphic designer, and my friend runs a print shop. We keep our costs low, so that people will use us. :)

                                This is a cute idea, but I can't imagine who would buy and who it would be for. I feel like if you gave it as a gift, you would be accusing someone of being ungracious so it would only make sense as a self purchase.
