It's been an exciting year so far if you're a Cultivate gal who loves new products! New Write the Word journals, new Faith and Letters & Numbers Sticker Packs, new greeting cards, new enamel pins, a new Wildcard Page Pack, and even a new event (!!)... and truly, the most exciting launches are still to come! (Eek!)

Out of all these, though, one of our most favorite has been the launch of the humble Encouraging Postcard Book. For such an unassuming stack of cardstock, we love that it has the power to create connection, bring people closer together, help them feel loved, and deepen relationships both big and small. Here are a few ways this community has put this colorful postcard book to good use over the last few months!

1. Accompanying a secret act of kindness. With their encouraging messages and low price point, these postcards are perfect to spread around like confetti! Tape one onto a plate of brownies and leave on your neighbors' porch, slip one under a random windshield wiper in the grocery store parking lot, or prop one up against a pile of wipes and leave on the changing table in a public restroom. We suggest keeping a postcard book in your glove compartment so you'll always have a cheerful message on hand!

2. Tucked into a loved ones' lunchbox or briefcase. Closer to home, many gals use their postcards for notes of encouragement on days with big presentations or scary tests. You can jot a quick note on the back, but the designs themselves will bring a smile to even the most nervous faces!

3. Tossed into a package. Shipping back an online purchase? Returning a book lent by a friend? Slip in a postcard and bring a smile to someone's face who really wasn't expecting it.

4. Sending an "I'm thinking of you" note. Perhaps these postcards most obvious use, we hear all the time how your favorite thing about these gems is how easy they make it to jot a quick note to a friend. The book is small enough to tuck into your purse or workbag - make it a habit to write a note instead of scrolling on your phone while waiting in the car line or at an appointment!

We'd love to hear: what's your favorite use for the Encouraging Postcard Book? (And if you don't have one yet, buy one here, if you'd like!)
