Good Morning, Quilters, Doodlers, and Letter-Writers (snail mail, that is!)
When is the last time YOU received a hand-written letter?
Perhaps a better question to ask…When is the last time YOU wrote a hand written letter?
The art of letter writing is on the decline (along with cursive…)
It’s too bad because it is such a gracious gift to give and to receive.
(BTW-I have a relative whose 365 challenge for 2016 is to write a letter every day!)
Perhaps we would be more interested in writing letters if we remembered it can be a creative endeavor.
So pull out your envelopes and a red pen or marker.
Who do YOU know that needs a little pick-me-up?
Send them the gracious gift of your time.
For advice on letter writing, you might like: How to Write Letters: A Vintage Guide to the Lost Art of Epistolatory Etiquette from 1876 ( I especially like #4-Blots and Interlineations.)
May ALL your endeavors reflect YOUR creativity!
