Time Saving Personalized Note Template

Today’s blog post has me glad to remember to use my AnchoredScraps time saving personalized note template for letter writing given we have a new puppy in our home!  Cooper is a joy and so much fun!

Recently I received a letter from a dear friend who had used my AnchoredScraps Personalized Note Template I had introduced here last July.

It was great to receive from her and it reminded me not all of our letters are meant to be picture perfect to include in a stationery store catalog and it really does save time helping to dash off that letter and have in the mail instead of unrealized ‘best of intentions’.

Date _______________

Dear _____________,

Thank you so much for your recent letter!   Please know how much your letter is appreciated.

While I have the best of intentions to write you and send a ‘proper letter’, alas, I am doing good to fill out this personalized form note to you.  My thinking is it is better than you having the silent sound of crickets chirping at your mailbox awaiting a reply from me.  Please accept today’s note with the spirit with which it is intended.  It is personalized because I have circled the items that applied to me and filled out the blanks to the best of my ability.   (And I did manage to find a stamp and address it!)

 Hope you are well!
