I decided I want to try to write more letters this year, and also to challenge myself to not just scrawl a note on a piece of notebook paper and shove it in an envelope, but to make it a creative challenge as well! Getting real letters in the mail is fun, but I think it's more fun to pull something pretty out of the envelope. In college I got an invite to a tea party that was collaged and crafted with such love and I still hang it on my wall because I like it so much. Plus, it has a little pocket where the actual invite once was and I now use it to keep new treasures!
I'd like to make this a weekly tradition, writing 52 pretty letters this year, but who knows if I can keep it up! I'd like to try though. It's such a nice little way to slow down and bring a bit of creativity into my life.
