Universal Letter Writing Week...

In case you didn't know, I am very much a huge advocate of letter writing. I remember when I was a girl being reminded to write ThankYou notes to relatives and friends. And letters, gosh, I would write long letters to friends. When I was in the 7th grade, maybe 6th, I had my first penpal. She was from Mexico and I was devastated when she stopped writing to me. There was a huge earthquake in Mexico City around that time and I was always worried that maybe she died. I would lose sleep just thinking about her. I still think about her and still have that letter.

There is nothing like receiving a handwritten letter and many letters that I have read are often so personal in nature, I feel as if I'm reading a beautiful book. I have a Letter swap on SwapBot and have recently changed the dates for more to sign up. So tell your friends and sit down with some tea or coffee and write a letter to someone who is dear to you today.

Happy Lettering!
