Merci Beaucoup!

I seriously fall short in most areas of etiquette, but one thing I am rather particular about is sending thank you notes. Old school, hand-written, stamped and snail mailed thank you notes.

And I like to have a ready supply of notecards available so I can dash one off at a moment’s notice.

I refreshed my supply recently during a marathon trip to Target, where I found these boxed sets:

I also discovered that Target recently collaborated with Sugar Paper, a high-end stationer from L.A.

If you go now, you may still be able to get a discounted 2014 calendar like this:

Sugar Paper for Target Wall Calendar

I love the simple, sophisticated aesthetics at Sugar Paper. Like these notecards:

Raspberry Confetti Note Set, $18 for 6

But the prices at Sugar Paper are a bit steep.

Fortunately, Target’s done a great job not only of collaborating with Sugar Paper, but, well, also ripping off their vibe. They were selling a near-identical boxed set of notecards similar to the confetti ones above, save a more palatable price of $5.99 for 24.

Target also has some really cute paper goods in their $1.00 section, like these:

My love of list making often leaves me wanting more notepads, and I’m known for wrapping gifts in craft paper fancied up with a pretty satin ribbon. I think the polka dots really elevate the rolls pictured above. There are other cute notepads and labels, too. Get to Target and check these out before they disappear!

One thought on “Merci Beaucoup!

  1. I always wrap presents in plain brown paper and tie it with string. Yeah, like the song, but I love how it looks. I usually attach a handmade card, so that’s the fancy part. Well, I made cards when I wasn’t in grad school and time to be a normal person. Plus, no Archivers here.
