I’m doing InCoWriMo again this year, and attempting to write a card or a letter every day of the month. I’ve started well. All in the UK so far but I have letters for further afield planned 🙂
First I wrote to Jan in Norfolk with her birthday card and Jeanne in Hertfordshire,
also to my friend Pat in Northants.
I received a my first letter from Emily in Sussex, such a lovely letter which included this beautiful handmade card and I wrote straight back.
The latest are to Jane in Norfolk and Natalie in Kent, both were on the InCoWriMo list.
It is difficult sometimes writing to strangers, but it becomes easier the more you do it 🙂
Here are some New Year letters I’ve sent out, with my own homemade stamps.
All very pink and sent out with love 🙂
The first are to Elizaveta in Russia and Mint in Thailand
and these are to Novahana in Indonesia and Kirsti in Finland
I’m very happy to be starting my postcrossings for the New Year. Happy Postcrossing Everybody! 🙂
Oooh, I didn’t realise how long it has been since I shared some mail with you. I was doing some art ready for an art exhibition which was taking up a lot of time. O have still been sending and receiving mail though so have lots to show you! 🙂
These postcards have gone to Min Cheng in Taiwan and Ingred in Netherlands,
W Chang Australia and Heleena Finland
and Zong He in China and Marina in France.
What a super thing it is to be able to touch peoples lives across the world without using social media. Handwriting a note is always special! 🙂
More Letters for my Every day commitment. I’m finding it a challenge to think of someone every day but I’m still keeping up! I thought it might be more interesting to tell you who I sent to and why.
#6 Josephine in the Netherlands because she hasn’t been well & #7 Chloe a friend for just being lovely.
#8 Dennis & Pat (church friends) for just being lovely.
#9 Emily my cousins daughter at Uni, for encouragement & #10 My Auntie Glenda, just to say hello.
#11 Heather a friend locally who has been extremely poorly recently.
#12 Jeanne in the UK, the minister at our first church after we were married because of happy memories.
#13 Lisa who lives local, a friend who has ME, to make her smile, as I took this photo from the top of the church tower and the arrow points to where my house is!
And #14 Sarah, someone new in the US who is doing the same letter writing challenge as me.
I’m half way through the challenge now so keep watching 🙂
As it says in my header, February is ‘International Correspondence Letter Writing Month’. To take part in this you commit to sending a letter, card or note to someone every day during the month. It’s not as expensive as it sounds, you can write local and hand deliver if you want. What a lovely challenge. I’m doing good so far!
1st & 2nd Feb.
and 5th 🙂
It’s nice to think of someone who won’t be expecting it! 🙂
