Universal Letter Writing Week

I was just informed of the Universal Letter Writing Week from January 8-15. Here are some tips and tricks that can be used for Snail Mail.

1. Find or make a cool stamp or even a drawing that is your signature - this can be your icon to let the person who receives the letter know who it is from. Place it on the back where you would put a heat stamp, (like in the olden days)

2. In the letter you should always have a beginning a middle and an ending.

3. A letter can feel more personal if you ask the reader what is going on in there world. (this also helps initiate a letter back)

4. When my mother used to write me while I was at camp she would do little doodles at the bottom of the page with sceens from home. This was a nice touch and I still remember them today.

Have fun writing.

Great post! I stumbled in here from Katydiddy's blog, by the way. Anyhow, I really like the idea of the little doodles your mom would draw. Nice touch:)
