And … I’m back! And what better way to get back into the blogging fold than with a great Letter-Writing Campaign missive?

As you can see, this one arrived in pristine condition all the way from Amsterdam. I think this is the first hand-polka-dotted envelope I’ve ever received, and it’s simply divine. Love that ladybug stationery too!use_meIt reads: Dear Sarah, I just found you through the write_on blog, and thought this the perfect opportunity to start the challenge.

Loved your blog, especially the letter-writing campaign. I love finding out people with my same passion for writing letters.

I also try in some way to encourage people to keep the art of letter-writing alive and do occasional paper crafts to be sent (via air mail) on my blog ( This paper is my second favorite — I ran out of my favorite from some time ago and haven’t been able to find it. But even if beautiful paper is also a passion — I think the most important part is always the words.

So thank you for keeping the art of letter-writing alive.

All the very best, Giova Benson

Thank you so much for writing in, Giova — I agree it’s all about the authentic content as well. Speaking of which, what an inspiring, beautiful blog you have! Your Flat Project is amazing. The package I have for you came about somewhat serendipitously. I had a bunch of samples from Antiquaria Design Studio that I thought would be perfect for you, but when I wrote Bailey to inquire about getting some images of them, she didn’t have them since some were exclusive to a stationery kit.

But, she most graciously offered to put ANOTHER kit together, and waiting for me when I got back from vacation was yet another fabulously addressed envelope!IMG_7209 copyThe cards cross several of Antiquaria’s collections and include the most marvelous Aloha pineapple, the Botanical Wreath Birthday Card (with a pop of copper foil), the Coco Happy Birthday Card and of course Thanks A Melon, also with copper foil. Thank you so much Bailey, your work will soon be headed to the Netherlands!antiquaria_1Speaking of which, do you want some free, fabulous stationery too? Just drop me a quick note on your favorite paper (which is most likely gathering dust) and tell me what makes it so. My address is: P.O. Box 22133, Beachwood, Ohio 44122. And if you are interested in being sponsor, don’t be shy — I’d love to hear from you too!IMG_7208 copy
