her grand children, she is going to request more to show her friends
and house guests. And I know you've even resorted to sending her a few

The use of email has changed post baby thank you note etiquette
dramatically. It may be easier to take a minute and send a thank you
email to your sister for the sweater she knitted for little Marcus but

thank you note on an Abby Jean note card.
you are supposed to send thank you notes for baby gifts within three
months of receiving them, it doesn't mean that you shouldn't send a
thank you if it's been nine months post pregnancy. The Abby Jean Blush and Chocolate collection is sweet and sophisticated handmade stationery perfect for
your 'in between feeding' thank you note scribbles while the Audrey
Hepburn inspired Until collection is a great way to tell some of your long lost single friends
that your first night back to sip margaritas with them will be in May.
Or you can just visit the Abby Jean website to purchase thank you stationery that doesn't require you to write
missives about colic, cradle cap or carrot stained three dot shirts.
