About a year ago I was in Target and passed by the cards section. My eye was drawn to the most adorable set of cards made by a gal named Kate Smith. These cards had the cutest drawings and funniest sayings. I immediately put like 30 cards in my cart because 1. I love sending snail mail to people and 2. I love making people happy. And all of Kate Smith’s cards do just that – make you happy!
One piece of her work in particular inspired me. It was a picture of an adorable pretzel with the following caption >>
A pretzel is just a piece of dough, who found itself in a tough position, and decided to make the best of it. Be a pretzel.
Do you knot just love that?!
Haha see what I did there?
I reached out to Kate Smith and asked her if she wanted to work together on a sweet little Act of Kindness idea meant to encourage someone who might be currently “in a tough position.”
Kate is the sweetest and sent me a giant pack of her image printed beautifully on cardstock!
They are perfect for attaching to a bag of pretzels and delivering to your friend who needs a smile, a sweet reminder, and a snack.
Simply pick up your favorite bag of pretzels from the store (bonus points if they are dipped in chocolate), attach with some curling ribbon, tape, or get fancy with a tiny clothespin clip like THESE or THESE!
I would love to gift 5 Happy Home Fairy readers a set of 10 Encouraging Pretzel cards by Kate Smith so that YOU can brighten someone’s day, too!
The first 5 people to comment on this post will be the winners!

I love this idea too. God wants us to show kindness no matter where we are or what we’re doing. ❤
We treat our community’s AA group each month, and this would be a perfect way to do so!
These are just the cutest and would be perfect to leave on neighbour’s door steps while we are in lockdown in Sydney. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you, I am always looking for ways to make someone smile.
