What is it that you find in your mailbox these days? Junk mail? Bills? Local advertising publications? And more junk mail?
When is the last time you actually received an honest to goodness letter from a close friend or relative?
It’s sad to say, but letter writing is nearly extinct these days. I suppose it’s understandable with text messages, instant messaging, and email at nearly everyone’s fingertips.
The reason that we resort to our tablets, computers, and phones to communicate? Time and convenience.
But honestly, I miss getting notes or letters in the mail (the old-fashioned way). I miss the personal touch a handwritten letter conveys, and I miss buying pretty stationery and notecards to send my letters and notes on.
Can you think of someone you’ve lost touch with, or someone that you know would really appreciate a heartfelt, old-fashioned note or letter from you? If so, consider this post an opportunity to get in on my write a letter campaign. It doesn’t have to be complicated or even time consuming, just a quick note on a pretty notecard will suffice.
I happened to have some plain cards hanging around my craft room, and I bought these pretty little paper flower kits on clearance at my Michaels last fall. I wasn’t sure what I would do with them until I decided that I was going to write my favorite aunt a letter. I want my letter to be as pretty, as it will be personal.
Do you still write letters and notes and send them by mail? If you decide to join my write a letter campaign, who will you send yours to? Please help promote my letter writing campaign and share this post on your favorite social media sites!
We love this idea Eileen and thank you for the inspiration.
