Correspondence

I have always been a sucker lover of great stationary. The cuter the better. I have been known to have stacks of stationary at any given moment because I just love being able to choose from an array of cards when I want to send a snail mail note. I adore getting lovely things in the mail however this happens...um...never

Perhaps I should lower my standards?-My definition of lovely includes anything that is not a bill or unwanted sales catalogue/advertisement. 

I used to send snail mail to family and friends all the time-like weekly-but nobody would send me anything back and not that I really need to have anything back in the mail but I would not even get notified that my note or card was received. The reason I would send a card was to share a laugh, say hello, or let the person know I was thinking of them-so it was a let down when the card would go unnoticed. I would think-well shit, I should have just sent an email.

Okay, I sound like I am whining-I'm not. I just think it is sweet if somebody takes the time to send you a little something. So next time you receive a card in the mail, just saying "hello," reach out to that person and let them know that you got it and that it made your heart smile. 

Here's some cute stationary that I found recently to purchase. 
You all know that I love cupcakes! Check out this cute little note set. For $10 it can be yours!

Buying stationary at specialty shops or other places can be fun. But supporting handmade is even better!

Aren't these cute?

Do you still take the time to handwrite your notes? Share your perspective.

I adore stationary (I bought a ton of Liberty London at Target on sale not that long ago) but I never have anyone to send it too. I'm trying to come up with a craft project to utilize my beautiful paper.
