Letter Revival


Hello everyone!
I had a fun idea today and am putting it into effect tonight:)
I did a post a while ago about letter writing and how it is fading away, a lost art form.
Well........... I decided to host a small letter revival festival!
For all of you who wrote to me lamenting the loss of lovely chatty letters full of news, and info, and stories and recipes etc........
I am collecting names of people who would like to send out a letter and receive one. You can pop over Artful Penpals to find out how to register. I will match you with a partner based on your common interests ( as much as I can) and you will then each send a letter to each other. Be as creative as you want. It is just a one time thing for now.

Send the kind of letter you would love to receive:)

...letter writing...what is that? LOL. i love to receive hand written letters. i also sell real estate and i always send hand written notes to my clients. believe it or not, i used to send out 125 hand written notes a month! i am not quite so inspired to do that anymore...now it is once a quarter, but it is a lovely thing to do none the less...reminds me of elizabeth bennet receiving her letters from her sister jane. xo, mickey

this sounds wonderful. Something worthy of my 44-cent stamp instead of a bill!
