During October I am taking part in #Blogtober18, where I write a blog post everyday for the whole month. Mandi over at Big Family Organised Chaos is hosting a linky each day where she also gives a prompt for us to write about. Today’s prompt is invitations/letters for #NationalPostDay.
Before the internet I used to write so many letters, I loved writing to anyone I could think of. My sister spent a year in Australia and I wrote to her at least once a week while she was over there, I had a friend who I met in hospital when I had Liam who I used to write to, I had penpals from meeting people on holiday when I was younger and I would just send random cards/letters to surprise people. Nowadays I don’t write to anyone, I only really take the time to send the odd hello email or Facebook message… although I am still pretty good at sending birthday cards.
It’s making me quite sad to write this as I used to get so much joy from writing and receiving nice post so as soon as I have finished this blog post that is what I am going to do. I’m going to get out my old address book and I’m going to write to people who I haven’t wrote to in years… just because!
I used to love spending time in card and stationary shops buying lovely things to send to my friends through the post – so today I’m sharing some things that would make the most perfect post to receive 🙂
This #happymail letter writing set has to be my first purchase. We all need to send more happy mail!
I love this motivational quotes postcard set.
Personally I don’t think you can put anything in the post unless it’s decorated in pretty washi tape.
I’d love one of these hand drawn address stamps! So cool!
These notecards are so pretty.
It would be amazing to have my very own letterhead.
This writing gift set is just beautiful.
I definitely need these ‘This is not a text’ note cards in my life!
Last but not least I’m hoping to be sending out some wedding invitations in the not too distant future! How gorgeous are these!
Do you write letters to people? I’d love to hear please leave a comment to tell me all about the special post you send and receive.
