Things to do Thursday: Write A Letter!

It seems that human contact is becoming something of the past with all of this technology we have going on. Instead of walking by and sharing smiles with each other, you may be sharing a wireless connection with them instead. There are emails, text messages, instant messages, facebook messages, tweets, and skype, but nothing is better than receiving a letter in the mail from someone you admire. You get an automatic smile on your face when you find that one envelope addressed personally to you amidst the bills and junk mail. Next, your mind starts racing wondering who it is from, what is it about, and why did I deserve something so personal to come my way?! Writing letters can be fun and here are some ideas on how to get going!

First off…who can I send a letter to:

A family member
A love
A friend
Find a pen pal
An old co-worker
A business that you are happy to do business with

Second…make your envelope exciting:

Write their name in fancy letters
Bring out the crayons, markers, colored pencils, or highlighters
Stickers
Decorate the inside flap with an image or pattern
Make your own envelope out of fun paper

Third…let’s make this letter look magical:

Bring out your best penmanship
Tell them something that will make them feel good
Dot your i’s with hearts, stars, swirls, whatever
Use a pen that is not blue or black ink
Sign your name like you’re a Hollywood star
Come up with your own closing, instead of Sincerely, how about: Written from the ends of the sea and the top of a tree, your friend, ……

So, this Thursday Polka Dot Tango wants you to write a letter to someone. If you still don’t know who I heard Santa is accepting letters at this time.

  1. Love this! Ditto your feelings concerning human contact. Our definition of real & personal has definitely changed over the years. Recently, I’ve been thinking of sending random cards of encouragement to people I love. It’s still nice to receive a hand-written note or letter and even better if it makes the reader smile. Your post has motivated me to begin. Thanks so much! 🙂 I can’t wait to send my first letter. It’s been awhile.
