Fun with Thank You Notes

I've been trying to think of a way to have O involved in writing the thank you notes for her birthday gifts, and I figured it out today! I wrote Thank You on her chalkboard (she helped, but I erased her "help" before I took the pictures!) and had her stand in front of the board with the gift while I took pictures. I had her say "Thank you, Guh-guh" (or whoever the gift was from) as I took the picture. This was a lot of fun, and O seemed quite proud to be taking pics for "tank too notes." Unfortunately, the lighting was a bit off, and we'll have to take a few more pics tomorrow (I was hoping to have the notes sent tonight!). I am uploading the pics to Snapfish, and then sending them out as postcard thank you notes. For the gifts that I didn't want to take outside and the gifts of money, I used pictures of O from her birthday party. Obviously, this isn't a picture that we'll be using :) I added her name after I took these pics, and I actually got few shots of her looking at the camera!


  1. what a great idea! how are you turning them into postcards?

  2. That is a great idea. I like it. I am doing my first super hero giveaway with one of Erin's capes.

  3. Thanks, ladies!
    Brianna- I'm uploading the pics to and turning them into postcards there.

  4. What an incredible idea! Violet's birthday is next weekend and I'm going to do something similar to this ~ we don't have a big chalkboard so I'll have to improvise somehow.

    Great idea! And actually something the gift-givers will keep! My sister in law always sends a postcard photo of all the kids from the party with a quick thank you on the back. My son has each years hanging in his room.
