August’s New Thing #1: Letter Writing
At the beginning of July, I set forth to accomplish 3 new things and the first thing was to send more letters to friends and family! Well, I only sent out three (during the first three days of freelancing full-time) and then it all went downhill from there. It was a combination of being really busy and also being bored with my stationery. I had intended on designing my own postcards (which I still want to do) but all I had was old stationery that I’ve accumulated over the years. The best part was probably addressing the envelopes and practicing different styles of handwriting!
Last week I connected with Tiny Prints and they offered to send me some of their custom stationery + return address labels and it couldn’t have been better timing! I ordered these cute thank you notes and these fun address labels from Tiny Print‘s site on a Friday (late afternoon) and they were on my doorstep (even after customizing!) the following Wednesday. With this new stationery, I’m a little more excited to start adding to my collection.
I absolutely love the bright colors and even felt like the address labels matched! I can’t wait to thank some people via snail mail now! I’ll be doing another collaboration post with Tiny Prints sometime soon to help introduce some of their holiday cards (and I’m a SUCKER for the holidays so be prepared for excitement).
Oh also, I had to include this picture of Desh. He was sitting on the top of our couch staring at me while I was shooting these pictures. Grumpy much, Desh? Cracks me up. When his hair grows out over his eyes, he looks like he’s frowning. Time to schedule a grooming appointment!
Oh and for those of you who might ask, my nail polish color is RGB’s Punch! Top three photos taken on my iPhone. The rest were taken on my (new) Canon T2i!
