Yay, we’ve successfully completed the first month of the Correspondence Club! When I dreamed up this idea, I was so worried that no one would want to participate and that I would be writing letters to myself, but instead, the eight lovely ladies I mentioned above signed up! As little thank you for joining the club, I sent each of the participants a note and set of heart-shaped stickers :) Then the real letter-writing began in earnest and it is so exciting to see how creative everyone has been with their letters!
Carrie, of Petal by Petal sweetly shared her experience with me- here’s what she said:
“I was so excited when a red envelope decorated with zebra-print tape landed in my mailbox! Camille’s creativity showed in the letter, the pretty necklace, and the collage wrapping. What I like best about Correspondence Club is that sitting down to write a letter vs. dashing off an e-mail means I need to slow down — something I need to do more often.”
I agree 100% Carrie! Taking the time to slow down and write a letter demonstrates a thoughtfulness that I certainly appreciate, especially when I’m on the receiving end of the letter :) For me personally, on the day I received my letter from Natasha I was having a not-so-great day, but coming from work and finding the sweet letter and pretty notebook that Natasha sent absolutely brightened my day! A letter is a little thing, but it can certainly make a big difference :) I’m so excited and ready for the March round of letters!
Do you want to join the Correspondence Club for March? You’ve still got time! If you would like to participate in March, please send me your information by the end of the day today (February 29th at 12:00am EST).
