National Letter Writing Month: Complete!

This past month, I took part in National Letter Writing Month and the #write_on challenge, where I wrote one letter for each day of April. [Read my first post about it here.] After 30 days, I mailed and gave out 30 letters to 26 people, 2 cats, and 2 dogs in 10 different states. 

 All of these cards plus a few more have been given to their recipients

It was pretty fun, and it got easier to know what to say as it went on. I feel like I could probably do another 30 now. I thought I'd have to know the person really well to write a letter, but as I went along some of the more interesting ones were people I'm not as close to or out of touch with lately.

I also got the best stamps ever. Circus. One of my favorite parts. Plus I added a dino rubber stamp on the bottom of each letter and threw in some temporary tattoos for the second half. I totally forgot I had them at first (sorry first batch of people!), but it seemed a fitting addition. Hopefully these brightened up people's days! 

I didn't, however, become a calligraphy pro. Gotta work on my alphabet, I think. And maybe not use dip pens? 

Either way, happy letter writing month!
