I had a baby shower on Saturday, so thank-you notes are on my mind! I've been trying to use up the remainder of my boring old store-bought stationary so I can start purchasing my paper from independent artists and designers. There's nothing to compare to the quality, humor and beauty of the non-Hallmark stuff out there, not to mention the benefits of shopping handmade. Plan ahead, so you have the cards available when you need them (I didn't plan ahead for my hostess gifts, and ended up having to hit a local boutique and getting not quite what I wanted instead). Here are a few sets of cards I found while window shopping on Etsy. And do go check out these shops, because there are more pretty cards than what I've featured!

If a link takes you to a sold listing, check the seller's shop to see if they've relisted the set.
