Hello, Founding Members!
Thank you for helping me create this community of letter writers! Writing cards & letters is a simple way to reach out and connect with another person. It’s a gesture that lasts, and has real meaning.
It’s my hope that having stationery delivered to your door every month is a small & simple reminder to keep cultivating relationships in your life that could use a little extra love or attention through a handwritten note.
Or, perhaps letter writing becomes a way to expand your circle of friendships with new pen pals.
Let’s uncomplicate letter writing, together.
Each month’s kit has supplies to write 4 cards or letters. Not sure where to begin?
Here’s what I’m doing: I’ll make a list of 4 people to write to, gather their mailing addresses, and pre-address & stamp each envelope. Then, I’ll set aside 10-20 minutes per card and make myself a letter writing date on the calendar.

This month, I'm hosting a Letter Writing Circle on Thursday, April 28th at 4pm mountain time via Zoom. It'll be a low key way to get together and make time to write a letter or two - and if you're feeling stuck on who to write to, or what to say, I'll help!

And, if you haven't joined the Snail Mail Enthusiast Facebook Group, I'd love to have you! My hope is that as this group grows, it'll be the perfect place to find a new pen pal, and be a welcoming place to land & chat all things paper and mail.
If you would like to download additional letter writing pages to print at home, here's a link. This is sized to cut in half after you print. Please don't share this downloadable with others, as it is a perk of your subscription. You are welcome to use & print it as many times as you wish.
If you're wondering who to write to this month, may I suggest taking a look at Love for Our Elders, where you can find the address to write a letter to a senior who needs some extra love this month.
You may be wondering how to use the rose gold clips that are in your package this month! I like to use them on my tack board in my studio, and clipping my stamps, letter writing list, and little pieces of art to display.
Speaking of art, the pieces of mini art you received in your packages are all hand stamped by me with blocks that I hand carved. In fact, this month I created these pieces while on a camping trip in the desert - so enjoy some of that desert sunshine infused into each piece!
One last thing - it is SO fun to see where these stationery kits end up. If you would take a moment to create a post or story on social media and tag me so I see it, I would be so grateful! (I'm on Instagram & Facebook). Or, share it in the Facebook group linked above!
The teacup sticker included in your package is a way for us all to "have tea together" while we each read and write our letters this month -- a little reminder of how connected we all are.
HAPPY LETTER WRITING!
