The Mail Models guide to expressing gratitude:

  • The sooner the better. I recommend keeping thank you notes on hand at all times so your gratitude can be sent within a few days of any occasion. Click through for a round-up of Mail Models favorites!
  • There's so much to be thankful for. Almost every gift or gesture is thank you-worthy, be it a birthday surprise, an invitation, words of encouragement,  or much-needed advice. Taking the time to acknowledge the things we receive is more than a matter of manners; it is a must. 

 

 

Cheeky Little Monkey

BEHIND THE SCENES AT MAIL MODELS HQ

How could I have almost missed World Cat Day today? I love my cheeky little Monkey (yes, that is his name), my loyal friend, faithful confidante and ever-present styling assistant behind the scenes at Mail Models. He has literally moved continents with me and is responsible for making me the crazy cat lady I am today. Lots of love and cuddles to my precious cat and all the other fabulous felines out there!

"If we treated everyone we meet with the same affection we bestow upon our favorite cat, they, too, would purr."

Talk about making a fabulous first impression. A beautiful rainbow of bright, summery color, Kathryn Christenbury’s calligraphy is as decadent as the sweet treats it stars alongside in this spread. Click below to view the full collection of candy-colored calligraphy, styled by Mail Models. Perfect for a contemporary wedding invitation, modern stationery ensemble or whimsical summer soiree, the bright, bold calligraphy featured here is a fresh, fun spin on traditional swirls of the pen.

 

 

 

A Toast to Friendship

Friendship Day is today, and I'm raising a glass to celebrate the gorgeous friends that I hold dear and have made such a precious difference in my life. I cannot even begin to imagine where I would be were it not for their love, support and encouragement. Over time, as I've moved from city to city around the world, my circle of friends has grown smaller, but the bonds deeper, and I'm blessed to now be surrounded by very special friends who I've leaned on, laughed with, been inspired by, and who have had a confidence in my abilities that I'm not sure I had myself. Here's to friendship and those treasured people who lift us up, love us and help to make this wonderful adventure of life so worthwhile. Cheers!
