If you have been following my blog, you know that April is National Card and Letter Writing Month. I have challenged myself to send at least one letter a day, in an envelope I have decorated, for the entire month. Here is what I sent out this past week.
This letter and envelope went to Martha for day 5 of National Letter Writing Month.
Martha is one of the people in an envelope exchange I am participating in. I need to send my exchange envelopes out by the end of the month. My challenge to send a letter and envelope a day is a perfect reminder to get these envelopes in the mail.
This letter and envelope went to Sallie for day 6 of National Letter Writing Month.
Sallie is a friend I met through my blog. Last year she even made me a wonderful breakfast before I went to a Calligrapher’s Conference that was in the town she lives in.
My envelope and letter for day 7 of National Letter Writing Month went to another Sally, also in Washington.
Sally is a friend I met at a calligraphy conference many years ago. We still keep in touch.
This envelope and note (along with the banana bread) went to Gayle for day 8 of National Letter Writing Month.
My friend, Gayle, just had surgery. I hand delivered her get well soon letter as well as the banana bread.
My letter and envelope for day 9 of National Letter Writing Month goes to Jean, not Joan as I misspelled her name on the envelope.
If you’re a calligrapher, you’ll understand. We calligraphers concentrate on getting our letters “just so.” So much so that we tend to not think about the spelling. That’s exactly what happened here. This letter and envelope went to Jean, not Joan, Wilson. Since Jean is a calligrapher, I’m sure she’ll understand, so I sent it the way I addressed it.
My letter and envelope for day 10 of National Letter Writing Month went to Sophia.
Sophia is a friend who loves purple. So, I just had to send her an envelope with her name in purple.
My letter and envelope for day 11 of National Letter Writing Month went to Hans.
Hans, like Martha, is one of the participants in my envelope exchange.
