The Lost Art of Snail Mail..
Lately I have been working with Herringbone Hearts, a stationary company, and I was just thinking about how almost nobody hand writes their letters anymore! I used to love coming home from school when I was younger, and getting letters from my friends in my mailbox. Now, it's all bills and the occasional magazine. How boring is that?
I would like to bring snail mail, and writing letters back! I'm pretty sure everyone enjoys getting things in the mail.. Or at least, I do.. It also gives you a chance to learn more about other people, and where they live! You can also learn a WHOLE lot about somebody by the stationary that they purchase and use...
There are so many options when it comes to stationary. Just search stationary, on Etsy! Some sets are much more expensive than others. If you are willing to splurge more.. There's always Sugar Paper, and other online stores like that! But in the end, it's all up to you:)
In conclusion, "Snail Mail" is most definitely a lost art! I desperately want to bring it back.. It's important to keep old arts in practice so that we don't lose the arts at all! I challenge everyone reading to write a letter, and send it to someone either this week or next. Purchase some fabulous stationary for yourself. You really just need a set that expresses you!
I hope you have a fabulous Friday, and send me an email if you have purchased your own stationary set! email@example.com
