I am sad that less people my age embrace "snail mail". Maybe it is the crafter in me but I cherish letters in a way I don't emails. Letters need to be thought out. Pen goes physically to paper as the writer captures a small moment of their lives. A moment that by the time the letter has reached the recipient will be old news.
There is something magical in that.
There is also something magical in what the letter is written on, whether that be a well chosen card, a scrap of lined paper or thick white cartridge.
Despite the fact that I contact my friends most days I wanted to send them something. I like writing letters and I like making cards so it was pretty enjoyable task!
I set about choosing supplies and used a lot of the things I received in the swap. I haven't made cards in a while but really enjoyed the process.
Now one of my friends at uni is a quote lover. During exams we would email our favourite book quotes back and forth to keep ourselves motivated. We agreed that Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Winnie the Pooh have the most wonderful quotes
After seeing beautiful examples of Sian's quote cards I decided it was high time that I tried a quote card myself. Unlike Sian however I decided to forgo literary wisdom and chose instead the wisdom of Pooh Bear.
Just as I sent them off I received this one from my friend which I felt summed up everything nicely!
Do you enjoy sending or receiving letters?
