Last month was National Letter Writing month. And each day for the entire month, I sent out at least one letter a day in a hand decorated envelope. Here is what I sent out last week.
This note and envelope went to Sequoia for day 26 of National Letter Writing Month.
Sequoia’s envelope was hand delivered, so I didn’t have to worry about US Postal Service requirements. I didn’t have to put an address on the envelope or put a stamp on it.
This is the back of Sequoia’s envelope for day 26 of National Letter Writing Month.
Here is the reverse side of Sequoia’s envelope. It’s on of my origami envelopes. More information is on my post: DIY Origami Envelope. These envelopes are fun to make with a square of paper.
This letter and envelope was sent to Jackie for day 27 of National Letter Writing Month. The keyboard is washi tape.
Jackie is a retired music teacher. She plays the piano and accordion and a myriad of other instruments. I found keyboard washi tape in Portland last fall and have been waiting for the perfect time to put it on an envelope.
This letter and envelope went to Janet for day 28 of National Letter Writing Month.
Janet has written me a number of letters and I wanted to send her one. I’ve been meaning to for some time, so National Letter Writing month was just the perfect push to get me to send her a letter.
This letter and birthday greetings went to Gaea for day 29 of National Letter Writing Month.
Gaea asked for a letter, and since her birthday is at the end of April, I wanted to make it into a birthday card/letter. Notice “Happy Birthday Gaea” around the flower on the envelope and around the card. I had fun with thinking how make this envelope.
This letter and envelope was sent to Angela for day 30 of National Letter Writing Month.
By the time the end of the month came around, I found I had promised a few more letters than there were days left in the month. So, I sent out 3 letters on the last day of April.
This letter and envelope was sent to Rachel for day 30 of National Letter Writing Month.
It was a happy month of making envelopes, trying to figure out a way to make matching stationery, and writing lots of letters. I’m now starting to get a bunch of lovely letters from my friends, old and new.
This letter and envelope was sent to Paula for day 30 of National Letter Writing Month.
Paula was the last person I promised a letter to for National Letter Writing Month. I do have, however, a list of more people I want to send letters to. So, I’ll still be sending out letters this month, but they’ll go out at a slower pace.
Happy Letter Writing, Candy
