Art of Thank You

When I began planning and hosting alumni events for RISD/LA 5 years ago, I just wanted to bring like minded people together and build community here in Los Angeles. My cohort, Liz Lanphear and I have hosted lectures at the Hammer Museum, private tours of the Getty Center, LACE and the Haas Brothers studio just to name a few. Yesterday, my friend and RISD Trustee, Erica Di Bona lectured at Beyond Baroque about her specialty, Thank you notes. She shared with us how to write a note for a gift you don’t really like, such as the striped tights her Father picked up at Costco. The key to writing a great thank you note: tell a little story to bring the reader into what you have to say. Finish with thank you- As Erica claims, “Life needs more thank yous”!  Check out her exciting website here-
