Hi! I hope your summer is going well. Mine has been interesting. Not doing exactly what I planned, but that is what keeps things interesting. I want to let you all know that I am going to be taking off from writing for My Creativity Blog for a short while. I am not exactly sure how long. I hope to be back writing in a month. It may be sooner than that.
Some exciting news before I take off is that I will be adding a writer to My Creativity Blog in August. They will write one article a month. I’ll let you know who it is later!!!!
As I was writing this article, I had the sensation that I was writing a letter to an old friend. I hope that you feel the friendship as well. That got me to thinking about how fun it would be to get creative in writing letters to old friends. How often do you get a real hand written letter in the mail? Not often, I bet.
Has letter writing become a thing of the past? I think it has. People do send cards occasionally. But for me getting cards in the mail can be a let down. Why? Because most people just sign their name and don’t write anything personal in the card they send. I have even received Christmas cards with a stamped signature. I usually turn the card up and down looking for some sign that a human has touched it.
So, be a rebel today and write a long newsy creative letter to a friend.
I truly love getting long newsy letters in the mail and I’m sure your friends do too. You can decorate your letter. You can include sketches, pressed flowers, lipstick kisses, and perfume scents in the letter. You can create your own stationary or paper. You can even make your own envelope. Just remember that if you use an odd size or large size envelope you may have to pay more for postage.
I hope this gets you inspired to send a letter to someone today. If you have no one to send a letter to, send one to me. I would love it!!!! My address is P.O. Box 90989, Portland, OR 97290.
Take care. Talk to you in a while. There are plenty of articles on this blog to keep you busy until I get back.
