The Gift of Your Handwriting

Some of my most precious  keepsakes are handwritten notes, cards and recipes from friends and family members. The sentiments are important but their personal handwriting adds tremendous value. Your handwriting style is a reflection of who you are and it is important that you pass on that piece of you to those that you love.

I recently came across a company that helps you collect those handwritten memories from your friends and family members. That company is Sand Dune Publishers and they publish Between Me and You Journals. These are not your ordinary, blank book journals. These journals ask questions and have plenty of space for your loved ones to write their responses.

Each hardcover, spiral-bound book measures 6 ½ ” x 7 ¼ ” and contains 35 – 45 fun-to-ask and fun-to-answer questions.
You get them back with handwritten responses you’ll cherish forever. There are 15 different journals including mom, dad, grandma, honey, son and aunt. The $14.95 price tag makes these an affordable gift too. To make it even more affordable Sand Dune Publishers has created a discount code just for my readers and their friends! You can save $1.00 off of each journal by using the coupon code momsaves when you make a purchase from
