The "I Think You Are" Project

It occurred to me the other day that the only mail I really get delivered to me nowadays is either bills, stuff I ordered for myself online, or "To Current Occupant".

I want to make snail mail cool again (I also want to make fanny packs cool again but I feel like I am on my own island with that one.) (whatever guys, when the village people need someone to fill in for their "A" in the "YMCA" because, I dont know, the guy got sick or something you all will be WISHING you had on a fanny pack and not schlepping a shoulder bag around so you could be that glorious "A" and have your shining moment) (it's gonna happen)

Ok, getting off track.

I wanted to start a trend. A trend where people get cool things in the mail from their friends and family. How much do you love "just because" gifts, letters or notes? Don't they make you feel awesome?

So, I want to introduce to you guys the "I Think You Are" Project. I created a 5x7 printable below with the phrase "I think you are…" written up top. All you gotta do is print out that bad boy and write below what you think of that person.

It could just be one word or a paragraph. Maybe you think your friend is awesome for quitting her corporate job to be a stay at home mom. Maybe you think your boyfriend is cute for having a pinchable butt. Maybe you want to let your first year college kid know that you think they are brave for taking on a new adventure in their life. Or maybe you want to send this to a stranger, you could always leave encouraging words on this card and go to your local library and place the note in a "self help" book, maybe its just the extra encouragement that person needed to hear at that moment in time.

For each person you send this to also print out a 2nd blank set to send along as well, that way the person who received your "I think you are" note has a chance to now do the same for someone else with the blank note you sent them.

So, who wants to help me with the "I Think You Are" project? If you happen to do this yourself I would love to see your blog posts on it! This little project is just to show that sometimes a little random note can really make your day.
