A Month of Letters Challenge Update #1

Posted in Event at 2:59 pm by Amber

1/31/2012 – I printed off the Challenge Calendar to plan the recipients of my letters. And I printed off the participant stamp page so I could include the challenge stamp with the letters.

My stationary is kept in two places. I took inventory and realized I have hardly any! I have less than a dozen note cards. At the grocery store I scoped out what they had but it was mostly Thank You cards. Because I don’t have any sticker paper, I bought a glue stick to place my participant stamps.

2/1/12 – While I did send out several bills (which I don’t count) I did not get to send out anything personal.

2/2/12 – Today I wrote and sent a letter to one of my oldest friends who lives elsewhere in the Midwest.

2/3/12 – I was going to send out a postcard today and realized I have no postcards. So I ordered postage paid postcards and stamps from the USPS web site.

2/4/12 – Nothing went out in today’s mail. But I purchased some note cards and cards at my local Hallmark store.


A Month of Letters Challenge

Posted in Event at 10:05 pm by Amber

A Month of Letters 2012I don’t know about you, but I love to send and receive letters. During middle school I had pen pals in Turkey, Germany and Japan. Whenever I would visit my grandmother in Nevada, I wrote my best friend every other day.

I’ve gotten out of the letter writing habit. I don’t even really send emails. Isn’t it nice to get something in the mail that tells you someone was thinking of you? When Beth and Rhonda both mentioned the A Month of Letters Challenge on Twitter I was immediately intrigued. And it’s only tonight, just a few days before it starts, that I’ve decided to participate.

If you want me to send you a letter and I don’t have your snail mail address, just leave a comment and I’ll email you or send you a message.
