Want an old-fashioned handwritten letter from moi?

Who likes to get stuff on the snail mail?

Real stuff, that is, not ads from local businesses and credit card companies.

If you do, you’re in luck cause you can get a shiny old-fashioned letter hand written by yours truly!

If you don’t mind giving me your snail mail address, of course.

I was supposed to do this a month ago.

Well, it goes back further than that, actually. Ever since I heard of  Ziggy Shortcrust and her lovely project of  Illustrated Letters, I’ve been wanting to do the same simply because I enjoy handwriting and I don’t do much of it these days.

A Little Kindness Goes A Long Way

I am sitting here absolutely bawling.

I was having a hard day. Beyond horrible. All I’ll say here is that I was forced to relive things I don’t even want to remember and I got triggered big time.

I’ve been in limbo all day. Absolutely numb.

And then, I had to get up for something and realized the mail had come. There was a package for me!

Naturally,  I did what every sane person would do. I ran to get my phone so I could take pictures :)

Do you recognize the sender?

A Lovely Letter

A much anticipated letter finally arrived today!

*squeeeeeeeee*

And what a lovely, lovely letter!

Now, if you’re not already following the wonderful elf whisperer,  skinnydog wrangler, campervan tootler Ziggy Shortcrust, I have to tell you, you’re seriously missing out. Hop over to her blog immediately after you’re done reading my post and do so. And then, everything will be good with the universe again.

You see, Ziggy has a wonderful project. And she wants you to help with it!

She  has decided to write a letter a day throughout 2013. But the best part is that more than just words, it will be an illustrated letter in that fascinating Ziggy style.

Isn’t that wonderful? I am very much a 21th century girl (despite being born in the previous one) but I do love getting letters in the mail and I do miss writing.

Read more about the Illustrated Letters project. And if you want to get one of those in the mail, all you have to do is email her your postal address to ziggy dot shortcrust at gmail dot com.

I’m thinking that maybe Little Sister Knows and Big Sister Knows More would like that?

I want to thank Lunch Sketch for introducing me to Ziggy. I learned about this project when his daughter received her illustrated letter.

Now, I’m off to write my reply to Ziggy…
