Entries in envelopes (17)
It's beginning to look a little like Santa's Workshop around here—boxes of stamps and cards and custom stationery all shipped and delivered with the help of my trusty, albeit disgruntled, elves at the post office.
Before skipping town to celebrate a certain special someone's 33rd birthday, I'm busy wrapping up a few projects and sending off some final art...
Happy Weekend, hoping yours involves cake and party hats too.
I'm currently reading Julia Child's My Life in France, Julia writes of her husband Paul's letter writing:
"Paul took letter writing seriously: he’d set aside time for it, tried to document our day-to-day lives in a journalistic way, and usually wrote three to six pages a week in a beautiful flowing hand with a special fountain pen; often he included little sketches of places we’d visited, or photos..."
I think Paul and I would have gotten on well. I love a handwritten letter...sending, receiving... In the days of email and texting finding something other than a bill or J.Crew catalog in your mailbox is all the more rare and decidedly special. These custom monogram and address stamps were ordered as a gift for a fellow lover of letters, a kindred spirit.
Side note... It's safe to say Julia, her butter and I would have been fast friends too. She comically notes that her letters were "full of spelling mistakes, bad grammar, and exclamation points..." Ha!
