For the last couple of years, we’ve had Wonder Pens postcards with various pictures on them. Sometimes we print out ones for special events or occasions, but mostly they are scenes from our shop and our favourite stationery supplies.
It's back! We ran our first Pen Pal Match Up last January in celebration of International Correspondence Writing Month, and it was such a hit we're running it again.
In celebration of spring and our upcoming monthly Letter Writing Club evening (this Thursday, April 13), I thought I would share a bit about our Letter Writing Set, a kit with stationery, a fountain pen & ink, and postage, everything you need to write a few letters.
Unfortunately, I didn't make it. A letter a day, even for a month as short as February, seems beyond my apparently limited means.
By now you might have picked up on the fact that February is International Correspondence Writing Month, and you may yourself be participating full on, writing a letter a day to someone, or maybe just writing a letter or two this month for the fun of it.
Happy Chinese or Lunar New Year! I'm a little late to it, but I hope you all had a chance to eat some dim sum or dumplings.
As we're heading into International Correspondence Writing Month, InCoWriMo, some of you may have new pen pals to write to, or people you've stumbled across who are also participating in the campaign. Our emails from our pen pal match have already gone out, so hopefully some of you will have some new mail on its way to or from you.
All you need to bring are a few addresses to write to, or of course you could always write the letters with a plan to address them later (this plan doesn't always work well for me as I lose track of my envelopes).
Happy New Year! It's already January 2017 - hard to believe, but we're embracing it here. And, before we've even got our teeth into January, we're looking ahead to February!
So we're back into the swing of things, and I almost forgot that our Letter Writing Club is this evening! It was so nice to come back from our trip to find a nice little pile of mail waiting for me mixed in with the bills and invoices and promotions.
