do you still use pen and paper and write things down?
My oldest is not so much into creating with her hands, she loves making up stories and writing them either on a piece of paper or in her journal. Last night she made a power point story for her little sibling. It was about cheetahs and it was very well written and illustrated with pictures she had found on the net.
When I was younger the PC was just coming into homes and it was mostly still the one with the green screen. So I used to write a lot of long letters to my friends, pages over pages. So sad we don’t do that any more. My heart still skips a beat when I get handwritten mail in my box, not only bills. It is so exciting, the anticipation what will be in the letter, what will it say, what kind of paper.
I still have some of the Paper that I used to write my letter on, sentimental? yes I am I don’t wont to let it go. May be I have to sit down and follow my daughters example and start writing again, well at least to my friends.
That made me look up some shops on Zibbet, to see if there is still anyone selling special paper. And this is what I found:
A felted Journal
your own personalized stationary
some ecofriendly stationary
you can find some upcycled envelopes like these
hand embroidered cards
and a big amount of photo cards with or without quotes
and then you need the perfect pen for your wonderful penmanship.
I think that will be on my “change” list for the new year, get back into writing letters. Yes emailing or texting goes faster, but the meaning and feelings kind of get lost in the fast life we live every day. And I would like to stop here and there, sit down with a nice cup of tea and read a letter. Knowing that this person sat down took his/ her time and put his/ her thoughts to paper and concentrated just on me for a little while.
