Do you send Thank You notes for gifts?

Do you send Thank You notes for gifts? Does anyone do that anymore? Just when I thought that tradition was dead, two handwritten thank you notes from celebrities were sent to The Artisan Group®, thanking us for the gifts we sent.

These lovely notes thanked everyone for the handmade gifts that we included in the Mother’s Day Gift Bag for 2014.

Each note card expressed gratitude for our personal gifts to them and by sitting down to write thank you notes it showed their sincere appreciation.

To Jennifer Love Hewitt and Kristin Cavallari – You are very welcome for the gifts and I hope you enjoy wearing our Rose Quartz bracelet and all of the handcrafted jewelry and other gifts that were included in the bag!

Sending Thank You notes for gifts

When I was growing up writing, sending a Thank You Note through the mail was very important. In the past 40 years that tradition has seemed to dwindle now that you can easily pick up a phone and call, text or email your thanks.

I was glad to see that this time-honored social etiquette is still alive and not entirely forgotten!! Do you send Thank You Notes?

Leave a comment about how you say Thank You for gifts.

Rose Quartz for Celebrity Moms

I am excited to announce that Rose Quartz stones made into bracelets for 25 Celebrity Moms and 5 members of the Press are on the way to be included with other handmade gifts in The Artisan Group® Mother’s Day Gift Bag.

This was an achievement that I can say was a great experience, and I can only hope that these wonderful Mom’s will love wearing this gift that came from my hands and my heart.

Rose Quartz Bracelets for Celebrity Moms

I decided to participate in this collaborative gift bag to Hollywood Mothers so that I would have experience in a large production, working my way up to other events with The Artisan Group® that require more products.

Mom-Charm-xo
TierraCast Silver Plated Pewter Love Mom Charm

I was inspired to make this bracelet by this little charm that I found and decided to combine that with Rose Quartz because of its loving and nurturing qualities.

Rose Quartz, also known as the Love Stone, is a crystal of unconditional love, It enhances loving qualities such as compassion, tenderness, comforting, nurturing, etc.

I made a “prototype” and sent a photograph off to the organizers for approval, once it was approved I did the math and then ordered all of the beading supplies I would need to complete these 30 bracelets.

Assembly of Rose Quartz Bracelets at 7-8 per day

Assembly Process

I used an assembly process similar to the one I use when making Rosaries, which worked really well and within a few days I was done! OK, well maybe it took a week.

The hardest thing to do was get a really good photo for the Gift Guide, I must have taken like 100 shots to get the color of the stones just right!

Mothers-Day-Note-Cards
Happy Mother’s Day Note cards

I decided to create a little “Happy Mother’s Day” note card where I could write a little personal note to each Mom. On the other side I wrote a short description of the properties of Rose Quartz along with Care & Cleaning for the bracelet.

As I wrote out each card I looked up their names on IMDB and was surprised and tickled to know that a famous movie star might actually hold a piece of jewelry that I made. If I am lucky they might even contact me or look at other items I have available!

Boxing & shipping

I picked my ship date and made sure to assemble each individual gift package, along with the note cards, business card, etc by that date.  T

hen “boom” it was done! Time to seal the box and off to FedEx for the journey across country to California!

Finished-Package
Ready to seal and take to FedEx!!
