Giveaway No. 7 // Avant Cards

There’s something special about a hand-written note. Despite the fact that probably about 60% of my childhood was spent with my mother putting a timer on and forcing me to write thank-you notes, I’m thankful. It’s a classy habit. I should write her a thank-you note for teaching me to write thank-you notes.

But the truth is… in recent years my commitment to the hand-written letter has waned. Okay, I’ll be honest, it’s all but died. Thank goodness for Lyndsay Rush!

The author of the blog “Lyndsights,” Lyndsay has the wit of a British writer and the heart of—well, something that has a really big heart. She spits out more puns on her twitter feed than Kanye spits out insults. So much so, that this chick single-handedly inspired me to create a “funny people” list on Twitter. Handle number one? @rushbomb.

So when I heard that she was launching her very own stationary line—I couldn’t have been more excited. ‘Avant Cards‘ (see what she did there?) is currently an etsy shop, and with the holidays approaching (and all those thank-you notes that we need to write to make our mamas proud)… this giveaway is gunna be a good one.

Check her out!
