At Figg Street Co., we're getting ready for Thanksgiving. One way we get into the spirit is by counting our blessings. There's much to be grateful for: good health, kind friends, waking up to beautiful sunrises and watching the sun set, and then, the starlight at night. Boxes of new inventory to display, being surrounded by beautiful stationery and inks, just to name a few things. Of course, we're also grateful to all of you who visit the shop and make purchases through our website - thank you!

Starting and ending each day by taking a few seconds to consider what you're thankful for can set you up for a good day and peaceful sleep. Sharing this practice with a partner can be a positive experience for your relationship and moves gratitude from a thought into an expression through sound.


To put gratitude into words and writing, consider a gratitude journal. Writing in a notebook about what makes you feel thankful can help us to overcome our human bias toward negativity. This bias means we're more prone to forgetting pleasant experiences and recalling negative ones. Savour the positive and make those memories stick by writing them down. You may find yourself in a more optimistic frame of mind.


Thanksgiving is about sharing. Although gratitude starts with you, spread it around! You can share the joy by expressing thanks to the special people in your life and those who perform kind acts. In addition to telling them in person or over the phone, you can surprise them by tucking a little note somewhere they're bound to find it. Or, write them a thank you card or letter that they'll cherish and want to re-read.

The Thanksgiving holiday is a great excuse to both thank others and decorate. Holidays bring out creative ideas to celebrate. (For those of you celebrating, Happy Rosh Hashanah!)

In the spirit of creativity, we'll be discussing and showing you many ways to use washi tape next week. Join us then!
