Categories: Thank you notes
I have been thinking about being thankful, maybe more than usual+, since I have been writing lots of thank you notes lately. As you may have read, I recently “made” as my Aunt Aileen would say, a birthday party for my daughter. I was finally over the whole party process – preparing, hosting the party and cleaning up the sprinkles. And then suddenly Thanksgiving and the Holiday Season are here. What happened to the year?

One of our friends asked us, “After almost 3 years, what are the 5 baby items you couldn’t do without?” I said: “I’ll have to think about the top 5 baby items, but I’ll tell you one thing we haven’t figured out – the poop smell is killing us.”
But before I regale with my poop anguish, I did think about what our Top 5 list would be. It’s not the coolest or most original list, it’s just the ones that really stood out for me.
How could anyone not have loved watching Scout Masterson and Bill Horn (aka “The Guncles”) as they shared their commitment and their journey towards parenthood in “Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood?”
Annabeth Gish has a long line of movie credits, including Wyatt Earp starring Kevin Costner, the girlfriend Tracey in Beautiful Girls, as well as Susan Sparks in the movie adaptation of DC Comics superhero Steel.
But in addition to knowing how to pick her roles on screen, she knows how to pick personalized note cards and stationery, which includes one of my favorites – the XOXO Flower Stationery in orange and red.
This was what she had to say about it when she received it: “I just opened my box of stationery! I have been out of town and just now got my hands on the fabulous Paper Culture product! Thank you very much! It’s gorgeous and happy! I’ll use it with joy!”
Stay tuned…she is planning to order her holiday photo cards from Paper Culture too!
Admit it: we’ve all listened to Loveline at some point or other. Even through those ebbs and flows when I didn’t necessarily need relationship advice, I still loved tuning-in to get Diane Farr’s perspective. I also find it equally cool that she was able to transition from relationship expert to crime expert as FBI agent Megan Reeves in Numb3rs.
Another thing Diane’s a bona fide expert with? Choosing stationery! So I’m thrilled to hear that she’s not only a Paper Culture fan, but that our note cards have inspired her! “Am I the first customer who was so inspired by your beautiful design that I wanted to paint it on a wall in my house? Oh my, you have done well. I love your style and your commitment to trees!”
Not only is Minnie Driver an accomplished actress and director (Circle of Friends, Good Will Hunting, The Phantom of the Opera) but she is one of the handful of down-to-earth Hollywood moms who puts family first. This scores high in my book. And while I love her real name Amelia, I also appreciate her choosing a nick name in childhood that rolls off the tongue, as I had to result to similar means in grade school. Who would not think twice about pronouncing Minnie?
All this said, it’s understandable why I’m especially appreciative that Minnie and her son, Henry, are Paper Culture fans: “Henry and I wrote all this birthday thank you’s using Paper Culture note cards. They are absolutely our favorite way to stay in touch.”
I was absolutely tickled when I realized that Minnie and Bree Turner, another strikingly elegant, versatile, self-possessed actress, shared more than Gerald Butler as a co-star. It turns out that Bree and her daughter Stella are also Paper Culture fans.
I particularly remember Bree in the mega-hit The Wedding Planner (2001) as a nervous
bride, alongside Jennifer Lopez (likely because I got married this same year!), but really noticed her in the recent RomCom, The Ugly Truth with Mr. “300” Butler. Bree tells us, “I’m officially now a Paper Culture convert. Chic, sweet and environmentally responsible, this company is creating the most charming designs. I’m in love.”
We’re smitten with both of these two lovely ladies here at Paper Culture.
