Note Trunk Review and Giveaway

I am seriously so excited about this shop and the awesome items it makes! When I found Note Trunk, I was in note/letter writer heaven. I'm the kind of girl who in the days of email, facebook and the like, still likes to write a good old-fashioned letter and send it to people. There's just so much more of a personal feeling to receiving a letter in the mail and it's a nice way to show that you care enough to take the time to actually write something and send it, as opposed to typing something. It's becoming a lost art for sure. I refuse to let it die because I have been so blessed to have been able to store up dozens of letters from my great grandma when she was alive and we would write back and forth to each other. I love seeing her wobbly writing that she sat and took the time to do through arthritic hands, simply because she loved me. That says so much more than any email ever could. I have an aunt who lives only about 15 minutes away who I currently write back and forth to. Even though she lives close, we don't see each other much and it's such a nice way to keep in touch. I just love letters and cards in the mail. Ok, now to reel myself back in...Anyway, at Note Trunk, you will find all sorts of lovely things to make your letters and cards even that much more personal. We moved last year, so all of the cute little address stickers I once had are now of no use to me and I was sad to just have to boringly (is that a word?) write my name and return address on the envelopes I was sending out. Then, I saw the awesome address stamps that Note Trunk makes! I got so excited! As I looked through all of the ones they offered, there was one that I just kept going back to and to my ridiculous excitement, they told me they would make me my very own address stamp in that design to review! They even let me choose between a self-inking stamp, a wood handle stamp and an eco mount stamp. I had to choose the wood handle stamp because it just seems the most old-fashioned and therefore fun to me! Now, I'm not going to show my actual stamp because I don't really want to just put my address out there like that, but this is the style that I was lucky enough to receive...
It's simple, yet elegant and fun. I love it!!! The stamp comes in an adorable little bag like the one pictured below and mine came with an ink pad as well (they are not included with the purchase of a stamp, but are available for purchase)!!!
There are so many designs available. Not only are there address stamps, but there are cool save the date stamps too. Here are some of the great designs they offer...
These are just a very small sampling of the many awesome stamps they offer. You are sure to find something that fits your style and taste perfectly! I was thinking that this would be such a cool wedding or housewarming gift. What a cool, personalized gift! In fact, they are offering my readers 15% off of your purchase when you use coupon code blog15 and it is good until the end of August!!! As if that isn't great enough, I have some more really exciting news for you. I mean, I'm seriously excited for you, because one of you is going to win a $33.00 Gift Certificate to Note Trunk!!!!
