When was the last time you wrote a letter? I bet you can’t remember. I understand it’s quite a hassle to write a letter, maybe even to make it pretty and then to send it to a friend compared to an email, a Snapchat, or a Whatsapp message.
I’m not saying I’ll make it less a hassle for you but I want to motivate you to get back to it, with The Letter Project. I already mentioned a few projects around writing letters at the very early days of my blog. Since then I have not stopped thinking about it and even sent two letters to my lovely friends in Germany. It’s not enough though. I really want to send more letters. I think it makes the receiver happy and it gives me the opportunity to be creative.
So here’s the plan:
I actually found an inspiration for The Letter Project. Gude from The Paperdashery got in touch with me and she just started her stationery brand. Part of her dreamy business is to create and send beautiful letters and packages. Whatever you need to ‘make’ your own letter you can find it in her shop. You probably noticed by now that I talk a lot about creating a letter. For me it’s not only about writing a few lines and sending it to someone, it’s an art itself. If I send a letter to a friend I want it to be special. When they open the letter they’re going to have an experience, a moment of happiness.
I found The Paperdashery’s Pinterest boards very inspirational so make sure you check them out. Gude will be also here (in the comments section) if you need any inspiration or have any questions about creating your letter. In order to get to know her a little better here are some questions for Gude.
I hope we get a few people together from all over the world. Gude and I are already two. Let’s do it!
