to be a letter-writer

You know how there are those things in your life you wish you were really good or diligent about? Maybe you wish you were good about always being on top of the laundry. Or you wish you were a knitter. Or the kind of person who reads the newspaper every morning? Or makes your children's clothes. Or always has a well-weeded garden? Or is never late.

Well, one of the things on my "I wish I was…." list is that I wish I was a better letter-writer.

My grandmother is my letter-writing idol. She would sit in her back living room, at her big wooden desk and write letters, send newspaper clippings, thank you cards. And today, I cherish those letters and notes that I have from her.

There is nothing better than opening the mailbox to find the surprise of a personal letter inside.

A few weeks ago, Megan, from TinyPrints asked if I had interest in trying out some of their products. I agreed knowing two things–my previous experience with TinyPrints during the creating of our family's Christmas card was really great, and I was hopeful that designing a set of personal stationery for myself might help motivate and inspire more letter-writing.

Again, the process of creating my cards was simple and straight-forward. The most difficult part was choosing a design and font. The rest was easy.

My stationery arrived in the mail a few days ago, and once again I find myself struck at the quality of the print and the feel of the paper. 

And while I'm moving away from a lot of "reviews" here on my blog, I was happy to share this process with TinyPrints in hopes that it might inspire the letter-writer in all of you.

  1. I also struggle with letter writing. I am good at thank-yous, but not so good with a letter. This year I am trying to write a letter a week. It is definitely helping.

  2. i’ve been driving around with a set of note cards for weeks (ok, months) hoping to steal moments to write some looong overdue notes. (also, my grandmother is my letter-writing-idol. i think we’ve discussed this?) xo.

  3. So sorry to hear of the passing of Sarah, my tears flow and my heart aches for the loss of a wonderful woman xx
