Giveaway :: Bella Ink

{shop :: Facebook}

Happy March, friends! We are so excited to begin this journey into celebrating our community and could not be more honored than to start off our month with a real treasure. One of the greatest aspects of a community is the fellowship with others, the sharing of communication. In this digital age, it is so easy to get lost in text messages and emails and we lose the connection that comes with good old fashioned, handwritten correspondence. I am the guiltiest of all when it comes to taking the simple way out, but since our journey is here, I’m going to work on making my communications something more.

Bella Ink Designs was started by Melissa Danaher in her home, with hand-glittered invitations and notecards. While the production space has grown, Danaher has kept her personal touch alive and well in her line. From correspondence cards to invitations and journals, there is something magical about putting pen to paper (especially when your paper is from Bella Ink.) The Fairytale Princess Thank You Note is the perfect set for my daughter (who honestly squealed with joy when I showed them to her) to send out after her birthday party. And the Chirps and Cheers Flat Note might just make its way to my own hands, too. Need a way to start your community correspondence off on the right foot? Bella Ink is the answer, friends.

    My husband used to leave me love notes every morning before I went to work, my favorite is when he’s telling me he packed me a cookie and that’ll do great today. It’s the little things that count.

    All through my childhood my mom would randomly pack notes in my lunch that said things like ‘I’m proud of you’ or ‘you can do it’. They were SO encouraging. On my birthday I got a special birthday treat, note, and tiara to wear.

    My husband and I (years and years ago) shared a locker in high school. He once left me a note that simply said “You are the most important thing in my life.” It must have been true because we are still madly in love and now have a family together.

    Just before my 14th birthday my grandfather wrote me a note about how proud he was of me and how much he loved me and what a lovely young lady I was growing to be.  It is the only thing he ever wrote me (he never even signed birthday cards) and a few years later he had a stroke and was never able to speak or write again until his death.  A note like that can impact a person’s life forever and it has left me feeling my grandfather’s transcendent love that even death can’t diminish.  He was so special to me and his love is precious, I am so thankful to have it written down on paper.

    It’s a collection of letters… I have every letter from my pen-pal of over 20 years.  We are as close as sisters and have never met.  We still write real letters and send our love to each other across the miles.  

    Shonna, you’ll always be my very best pen-pal, forever and a day.  <3

    A note I have from my mom. She wrote it to me a year or two before her accident that took her life. She told me what a wonderful young lady I had become and how proud of me she was. We didn’t get a long very much at that time, I was a teenager and knew it all.. I cherish it very much, and am thankful she took the time to write it to me!

    It’s not a traditional note but a cassette tape my boyfriend made for me when I headed of to college some 25 years ago – filled with music and him talking. I played it constantly.

    My boyfriend and I were long-distance for a while, and we wrote each other a lot of letters.  I still remember the way my heart spilled over when he first wrote that he loved me.

    The most memorable note I have ever received is an anonymous post it that someone left for me on my desk that said “You can do it”. I keep it tucked it my wallet and pull it out whenever I need an extra ounce of courage. It is amazing the impact that those four little words can make and I try to pass it on whenever I can!

    So I’ve been thinking about this question for several days and I find it SO hard to answer!  When I was really little, the first note that was important to me was the one my grandpa wrote in a birthday card to me before he died.  (It was my first experience with death, and my first sense of how words could connect us beyond voids.)  Then, when I was in high school, a girl wrote me a note telling me how loving and powerful and inspiration she thought I was.  It made a huge difference to me.  (I was a freshman and she was a senior.)  The truth is, I could probably go on FOREVER.  The words of others have not just meant the world to me – in many ways, they have been the whole world to me – going into the past and the future, guiding me and shaping me.  (I’m an English teacher, though, so you know, I tend to think highly of language!)

    When I was in elementary school one of my teachers, Mrs. Nash, slipped me a little piece of paper that read, “I’m sorry, I’m going to have to send you home, dolls can’t come to school”. When I first read the note I took it literally and was struck with panic that I would be sent home for some reason, but when I looked up she gave me a big, warm smile and a chuckle. When I was younger I had very few friends, I wasn’t very popular and I really struggled with my self esteem, I think Mrs. Nash recognized this and slipped me that little note to make me realize that she thought I was special.  I am now in my thirties and I still have that note from Mrs. Nash. It just goes to show how sometimes something so small can make a big impact.

    My mom wrote a nice letter in a very special book she gave me…I still have it and it is so sweet.

    When I first started dating my husband, I thought he was a thug. I didn’t really want to go out with him in the first place, but I couldn’t figure out how to say no. After we had been dating for a few weeks, he wrote me a letter about how much fun he had with me and how much I meant to him. I was completely blown away and surprised at how wrongly I had judged him. I keep that letter tucked in my journal and look back at it every now and then to remind me of when our love was new.

    My husband wrote me a valentine when we were dating and it was so sincere and vulnerable and sweet. I’ll always treasure it.

    these little cards that my parents would make for me when i went for church camp. they were simple plain printing papers, but my dad would illustrate designs for them, and inside there would be a message from both my parents and sometimes from my brother as well! i can feel their love for me through their prayers for me.

Although slogans may be enlisted to support reasoned ideas, in practice they tend to act only as emotional appeals. Opponents of the US’s invasion and occupation of Iraq use the slogan “blood for oil” to suggest that the invasion and its human losses was done to access Iraq’s oil riches. On the other hand, supporters who argue that the US should continue to fight in Iraq use the slogan “cut and run” to suggest withdrawal is cowardly or weak.
