Each year we host a Christmas Party for the community we encourage and each year we usually have a hard time getting items for the older children.
I was searching for ideas and came across this book Write Back Soon by Karen Benke and thought it would be a huge addition for the gifts for the young ladies that would be attending.
It absolutely was!
We paired it with colored Pencils and some stencils and they were all taken!
It’s such a great book!
This book is filled with chapter after chapter of ideas, prompts and inspiration to reach out to others in your world via pen and paper!
From “Kinds of Correspondence” to “Gifts to Include in an Envelope” You have almost 200 pages of ideas to get those creative ideas flowing from your mind to actual paper!
Reminding you to write on the “Specific Days of the Year like National Handwriting Day, Do A Grouch a Favor Day, Thesaurus Day etc. there is no shortage of ideas here!
In a technology driven world, this book is refreshing and inspiring!
Benke even reminds us about the potential of the Letters’ Return. As many people do, her friend saved all of her handwritten notes and left them for her, reminding her “we’re all on loan to one another.”
I personally love sending my children and great-nieces and nephew postcards from my travel. When I’m blessed with grandchildren, I’ll do the same for them. Knowing someone is thinking of you while they are on vacation is pretty special!
Again, this book is packed with ideas so that you can grab paper and pen and easily get a just because letter/card in the mail.
Because I love Snail Mail and want you to send more letters, I’m giving a copy of this book away.
Simply leave a comment below about a letter or card you received from someone and how it made you feel. Easy right?!?
I’ll draw a winner on 2/14/17
