Keep it Simple. The more you say, the more mistakes you will make.
— Chinese Fortune Cookie

Isn't that a funny quote?  Especially appropriate in our age of e-mails and text messages!   I think of this quote while I'm creating imagery too.

Whenever I send a hand-written note, I choose simply-designed notecards and stationery that provide a cheerful or inspirational backdrop to my message, something that best fits the mood.

Colorful stickers are a versatile way to personalize correspondence.  I still love to look through cards and letters from my mother and my aunt -- decorated front-and-back with stickers of flowers, animals and birds -- little icons that they lovingly chose just for me!
