Happy Valentine's Day to all. Just a reminder that some of the most memorable tokens of affection are the written word.
Put pen to paper and let your heart do the talking. Smooches!
I'm super excited! While navigating the internet with some like-minded letter friends the subject of "child penpalling" came up. One thing lead to another and I reached out to a neighbor of mine who has children that I thought might be interested.
It turns out they might be. So I put out a call to get them a penpal and to my wonderful delight there are two lovely girls, one it Germany, the other in New Zealand who are up for my young neighbor friends, Clara and Jeanette.
"I couldn't possibly just hand over
an address now could I ?"
No no no...
You have power. Did you know that? We all do. We are born with it and it never leaves us. We can choose to use it for good or evil. We can ruin someone's day or bless someone's day.
"We can lift a soul.
We can create a moment that will be remembered through a lifetime."
Maybe a bit of a grand thought but it is true and possible for all of us. And
Thought I'd Share.

OK, so on top of the fact that I insist on using my two reams of really bad paper to make my envelopes (hence all the ink bleeding in my calligraphy), things sometimes just get messy.
After you spend time making your letter just perfect things just happen.
"You have to roll with the stamps here."
Today I decided that instead of an ink blot I was gonna send off an INK WHISPER! =) You just have to turn it around. The way I see it, this person probably never had an Ink Whisper (can't you hear it?) sent to them in their whole life, and here I am helping them get that off their bucket list and stuff.
I'm sure you have stories from your desk blotter. What have you turned into a positive? —Keep Scribbling!
Hello, I’m Nina, the maven behind the
IQS blog. I’m all about creativity (ya think?).
I work in several disciplines. So it's no surprise that the Art of Letter Writing would come knocking on my door. Smitten!
However, I did not want to simply add MailArt as a discipline to my website. Thus it became the IQS Blog within my site. And that is why there are TWO navigation menus. *Here’s a Tip: stick with the BLOG Menu in this Column. The main site menu will lead you astray into dark places where you will be screaming for help and no one will hear you.

• Letter Writers
• A Month of Letters
