I spend a good amount of time writing each day, or thinking about what I will be writing next.  I think many of you can relate, right?  However, whenever I’m given the task of actually writing a note in a card – I often draw a blank!

“aaaaahhhmmm – what should I write?”

Not anymore!  I was given a copy of  Write the Right Words: Messages from the Heart for Every Occasion by Sandra Lamb, and I welcome it as a regularly used book on my shelf!

Here’s a little bit more about the book:

Every greeting card needs a personal, handwritten message to make it complete. In this comprehensive, encouraging guide, journalist and lifestyle expert Sandra Lamb offers a wealth of advice, inspiration, and examples for anyone who wants to add the perfect personal touch to their card messages—as well as anyone who wants to know the etiquette of when and what to write.
Something as small as a heartfelt message on a greeting card can help remedy our hectic, e-mail–dependent lives. Lamb provides tips and sample messages for every occasion under the sun, both happy and somber (thank-you, birthday, birth and adoption, condolence), and explains the meanings of possibly unfamiliar holidays and religious rituals to aid in the writing of appropriate messages.
This personal, indispensable guide will help you rekindle the joy of putting pen to paper and truly connect with loved ones and friends.

After reading through most of this book, I’m actually shopping for stationery again and thinking about when I could use it.  Sandra has thought of everything in this book, thank you’s to in laws, and the most difficult task of words of sympathy.  Relevant quotes have been included and sample text for you to personalize and make your own.  I know that I will turn to this reference time and again!

Good news for one of you – Sandra has offered a autographed copy to one of my readers.  (US/Canada only, no PO Boxes)  Just leave me a comment to enter — I will select a winner over the weekend!

Many thanks to Lisa of TLC Book Tours for the opportunity to participate in this tour.

Hope you all are having a great day~
