Talk about a bizarre coincidence! Or IS it….
We ordered in some Chinese food the other day.
At the end of the meal, we all reached for the obligatory fortune cookie, and much to my surprise, this is the fortune I got!
A fortune cookie fortune that says “A cheerful letter or message is on its way to you“.
April is National Card and Letter Writing Month!
Wing’s called it!
For some unsuspecting folks – a cheerful letter or message IS on its way to you!
Why don’t you take a few minutes and write, for a very good reason – or NO reason, to someone you’re thinking about.
Brighten up their mailbox this April.
It’s that time of year. Students graduating from university and high school, are applying for jobs, and going on interviews.
We came across this great article, written by Wandy Ortiz on WayUp.com, about the super-smart habit of sending a post-interview thank you note. It’s a GREAT way to set yourself apart from the many applicants that interviewers see.
Stand out. Send a handwritten thank you note.

We have shared before, about projects our Social Media ‘friend’, Barb Marshall, has taken on… She shares her passion for Happy Mail on her RiteWhileUCan Blog.
She also has a project to spread Christmas Cheer… We just can’t say enough about the MakeItMerry Project – which works to send Holiday Cards to the homeless!
Here is her latest update:
One week today and it’s the big day! How is your list going? I made some Christmas cookies this weekend, got the gifts organized and hope to start a wee bit of wrapping tonight as I watch “Love Actually.”
But first, this afternoon, I will be sorting and reading (with the help of friends) some of the hundreds of Christmas cards for one of the homeless shelters as MakeItMerry makes a delivery tomorrow.
I thought you might be interested to see how progress is going so that is what is on the blog today:
Have a lovely Sunday,
We hope Barb’s passion for sharing Cards and Joy, inspires you to share a little “paper love” during this Holiday Season!

Haute Note is excited to participate in the “Make It Merry” Project, started by Barb Marshall from RiteWhileUCan.
This organization aims to make Christmas for the homeless a little merrier, by delivering to them, handwritten Christmas cards.
You can find out more information, and how you can get involved, via the Make It Merry website, or on the RiteWhileUCan blog.
We are pleased to be supporting Barb and the Make It Merry Team by providing some blank Christmas HauteNotes for card-writing events, as well as sending 10 handwritten messages of our own!
Please join us, and help Make It Merry!
