To start with, let me share this quote from a post called “The Art of Letter Writing”:

. . . sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up personally at someone’s door. Ink from your pen touches the stationery, your fingers touch the paper, your saliva seals the envelope. Something tangible from your world travels through machines and hands, and deposits itself in another’s mailbox. Your letter is then carried inside as an invited guest. The paper that was sitting on your desk, now sits on another’s. The recipient handles the paper that you handled. Letters create a connection that modern, impersonal forms of communication will never approach.

I love how eloquently this was written and how very true it is. Maybe this quote unravels some of the mystery behind the feelings we have towards letter writing and receiving real mail.

Letter-writing Inspiration

  • I came across a wonderful website by Pam Foster called The Lost Art of Letter Writing. (You can visit it here.) She shares her cards and letters, and they are gorgeous. I love a recent post where she shared how she’s using clear envelopes. I have some that I bought years ago to package cards for sale but they would be amazing to use for an envelope. I’m going to try that!
  • I’ve mentioned The Postman’s Knock before for all things hand-lettering but she also has a lot of card and envelope-making tutorials. This particular birthday card is stunning (and is a great reminder for me to pull out our light box and use it more often!)
  • Want to learn how to make a pocket letter? I share how I made my first pocket letter here on this post. It is such a creative way to send snail mail! I originally made one for my mom but my young nieces were mesmerized by all the tiny treasures in each pocket. Definitely noted that for the future!
  • I absolutely LOVE this idea of making a pen pal gift set. This tutorial is easy to follow and reminded me of my craft kit for kids article. You could definitely choose small, flat crafting items to send a craft kit in the mail too. (Think stickers, mini-books, and ribbon.)
  • For those of you who are looking for a little something more and would like writing prompts and printable stationery, check out The {10 Minute} Letter-writing Retreat Bundle here. It is ah-some!!!
