Happy New Year dear¬†readers!
I hope everyone had a fun and safe celebration. Mine was spent relaxing with family.
I¬†don’t know about you but I’m not too fond of standing in line at the post office just to purchase¬†stamps. I prefer to buy my postage for shipping packages online or at one of the kiosks within the post office. Also, there’s no guarantee that they will have any of the decorative stamps that I want.
Recently, I decided to try ordering some stamps online. It was actually a pretty nice experience. I could choose from a large selection of designs, purchase with a credit card, pay a very minimal shipping charge and they showed up in my mailbox two days later. I love to mix and match stamps on my letters so I’ll buy a variety of different stamps in varying amounts. I almost always add too much postage to my letters but it’s ok because I am personalizing my correspondence. Alexandra Stoddard taught me to do this in her book Gift of a Letter¬†.
Years ago when I wrote letters on a regular basis I would write¬†early in the morning before I went to work. I would sit at my kitchen table with a cup of coffee and my stationary and pens and write letters to friends near and far.
Where do you write? When do you write?
I mentioned the other day that I was going to have a little giveaway for the new year.¬†¬†Post a comment here and tell me where and when you like to write.¬†¬†I’ll put your name in a hat for¬†a special little prize and¬†I’ll pick one this coming Sunday evening.
I hope everyone has a great day.
