send more {mail}

When I was young, I had some penpals in France and my grandmother made sure I always responded to their letters in a timely manner. We used to send Easter and Christmas postcards to friends and family. And then we discovered e-mail and forgot how to write a letter by hand.

I am very thankful to Ana Pina for reminding me how nice it is to write a letter. She joined a nice snail mail project, sending and receiving beautiful letters to and from around the world.

My letter to Ana was sent and received around Christmas, and I included many postcards from my large, large collection. I am glad she received it safely and liked it and now I am patiently expecting my letter from Ana. My mailbox will be soooo happy.

Do you want your mailbox happy too? Would you like to receive a letter from me? Let me know in the comments below.

    The emails are in fact more rapid, practical and efficient, but the old letters written by hand are so much more charming.
    I always liked these letters, unfortunately most of people stopped to write and send them. Very good project, this one. 🙂

    I’d love a “local” letter, I am a passionate of letters, words on paper, ink, colour, handwriting …. When I was a child and a teenager, I used to write on any occasion (existing or created by me) and I still enjoy thism even if I use emails and all e-stuff around us.

    So …. What do you say … ? 🙂
