All RandomNotes are 3x5 in size... small in size, big in impact :)

Hello! I’m Sarah, creator of RandomNotes bySaySay!

RandomNotes began in my 7th grade classroom as a way for me to inspire and encourage my students. Shortly into my first year teaching, after getting to know the students individually, I realized how unique they were and that each needed something very different emotionally. One student was incredibly intelligent and hardworking but suffered from test anxiety. Another wanted nothing more than to be in school because her home life was in turmoil. Another lived in the shadow of his older brother, never feeling special. A new student was experiencing school for the first time and felt like an outcast. One practically lived alone because her mother worked three jobs to support the family. These kids needed something extra special from someone. So I started drawing pictures and writing expressions on 3x5 index cards to provide a bit of extra love and support. That first year, I only gave away about 30 notes but those 30 notes left their mark. Students would return to me and say that they kept the note in their pocket or binder and looked at it everyday. After using it, some gave their note to someone they felt needed it more. Many taped them up in lockers or on bedroom walls. I soon realized the notes were serving a greater purpose than originally intended… and that there was potential to reach so many more!

Working with my cousin Emily, we created 60 unique designs, now available on Etsy! RandomNotes aren’t just for this teacher and her students anymore… check out the ‘Creative Uses’ tab on to see how you can use RandomNotes bySaySay to brighten someone’s day!
