Is writing letters a thing of the past?

Do you feel that writing letters and sending them via snail mail is a thing of the past?  I myself say NO NO NO to that question!  Everyone loves to receive handwritten letters and notes from a loved one or someone they haven’t heard from in a very long time.  I say that this year we should all take the time to break out the pens, pencils and paper and start your writing engines!!  Get revved up and ready to go with the new year almost upon us.  Here are some great pieces I have discovered while looking through the plentiful items on Etsy.  Take a look for yourself and see if these inspire you to take your inspirations to paper and write that long awaited letter to a loved one!  I know they will be thoroughly happy!

Lights of Hanukkah Greeting Card The Poppy Collection - Personalized Set of 12 Notecards Set of 4 screen-printed flat notes in gray and ochre
Papercut Maple Leaf Stationery Set of 6 Fall Cards Set of 8 Blank Sunflower Notecards Mini Notecard Set Groovy
Mistletoe Kisses--1 postcard with envelope Set of 20 Personalized Initial Orange Whimsy Flat Note I Like Your Bow Blank Greetings Card

Now if these don’t inspire you to get out your writing utensils…I just don’t know what will!  Take this challenge and see if you can stick to it, make it your New Years Resolution…to write more handwritten notes or letters to the ones you love this coming new year!


  1. What a wonderful post! I totally agree that in this hi-tech world we actually "write" less and less. While emails and texts have their place, I still love getting an old fashioned hand written card in the mail.

  2. I concure!
    Everyone loves to see something more than trash and bills in their mailbox, I know I do :)

    When my fiance and I were in our 2 1/5 year long distant relationship we would write all of the time. It was really great and you could be as creative as you wanted to be :)

  3. I love that one in the center. i'm also a huge proponent of snail mail.

    I'm following from Etsy. I'd love it if you would follow me. : )

  4. This is why I say that we should all make a New Years resolution to write more snail mail letters and notes this year. Start off small and write a simple note and break out into a nice long letter...thats what I plan to do anyway.
