Once again, I had a blast putting together this month’s Correspondence Club round-up post!  It is so interesting to see how different each person’s letter is and to see the creative touch that all of these letters have.  This month, our little club grew by four members, which is so great to see!  Check out what a few people had to say about their experience below:

Kat:   “I haven’t written a letter in a long time but I love the fact that snail mail is so much more personalised! That people sit down and actually write a letter makes the letter more meaningful to me :) Plus the fact that I love receiving any mail :) It’s a bonus!”

Carrie: “Participating in Correspondence Club has reminded me that keeping in touch with a hand-written note doesn’t have to be time-consuming. My goal for the upcoming month is to surprise at least one friend or important person in my life with a hand-written note. :)”

Carrie also shared this wonderful video on the dying art of letter writing.  One thing that jumped out to me from the speech was the following quote: “Why can’t we have letters and emails?!”  My hope with the Correspondence Club is that we can help keep the art of letter-writing around for a little while longer :)

Do you want to join the Correspondence Club for April?  We’d love to have you!  If you would like to participate in April, please send me your information by noon on Sunday (April 1st at 12:00pm EST).

  • Thanks for doing this :) I enjoyed the experience and its fun to see what others sent :)

    • Glad to hear that you’re having a good time in the club Kat, and thanks again for doing a post on your blog about it :)

  • Such a great idea – my best friend in Canada and I exchange snail mail letters every month or so and I just adore getting to send/receive something handwritten that a lot of time has been put into.

    • Awesome, glad you get my letter! Cannot wait to get yours! :D

  • I’ve actually been sending more letters lately… well, okay. One, haha.

    • Haha, still, I’m glad to hear it! And I bet that one lucky person loved getting a letter from you! :)

  • Adrienne

    It’s been a year or so since I made any letter…As far as I can remember I made it for my bestfriend who will leave for her school abroad…

    • That must have been a very nice parting gift for her Adrienne! I’m sure she appreciated it :)

  • Awww! Such a great idea. I looooove writing letters so much. I used to cheesily do it with my ex-boyfriend but it was always so nice to see what creative things we could come up with for each other. Have you seen this yet? You might wanna give it a try: http://mapenvelope.com/

    Maybe I’ll join during the summer! I’m so busy right now but it sounds like such a nice idea!

    • Thanks Melanie! I really enjoy sending letters and it’s so nice to find other people who do too. You should definitely join in when you have time!

      And thanks for sharing the link, such a cool idea! :)

  • What a neat idea! I’m a horrible letter-writer but love getting mail. I know, I’m the worst kind of person to correspond with!

    • Aww, thanks! And who doesn’t love to get something in the mail! :)
