oh what a surprise…

February 21, 2009

So as many of you are aware, I have a line of Savannah greeting cards, sold throughout the little galleries in our area, and of course over in TheInkLab. Each box of notes is carefully sorted and packaged by hand, right down to the little black satin bow.  I’m meticulous about this process, and often recount envelopes and cards just to make sure I didn’t miss one…we’ll boy did I get a surprise yesterday!  See the following email:

Hello,

I just found a message in a box of your Savannah notecards that I purchased at the SCAD store last fall and thought it might have been meant for you.  One of the cards was written on, “Hi Sweetie, here is a check.  Your idea of the “desk” was perfect.  Have a great week.  Much love, hugs & kisses, Gran.”  The message indicates that a check was enclosed but there was none.  Anyway, I was just wondering as I have never bought a box of notecards before that had a “used” note in it!!  (I’ve enjoyed sending these cards and even purchased a box for my sister who has a daughter enrolled at SCAD.)

Mystified,

Lori

PS  I have the card if you would like it!

Ha!  I almost fell out of my chair when I read that email.  How this note (and I do believe it was from my Gran to me) found its way into a new package of cards is beyond me.  Those of you who have visited the studio, know how organized I keep the inventory.  Alas, it makes for a great story, and many thanks to Lori for her good humor about the situation.

Happy Saturday everyone!
