Handmade Stationery

I truly believe that handwritten notes are a lost art.

As a kid I remember racing to the end of the driveway to excitedly collect the mail.  Combing through catalogues, bills and magazines, I had high hopes that something was for me.  On the rare occasion something actually donned my name on front {usually around my birthday}, my heart was overjoyed -  it was a special day.

I still feel much like that disheveled child with the raspy voice, sun bleached hair and scrawny legs when I receive something handwritten with my name on it.  It's almost more exciting now than it was back then, because rarely does anything lovely emerge from the cluster of bills that exits my mailbox.

It's so easy to make someone feel special, so I've decided to make an effort to regularly send handwritten letters to the precious people in my life.  To personalize it, I've been on the hunt for pretty paper.

Check out a few of my favorite finds....

Are you in the habit of sending notes?  Do you have a favorite stationary or paper you use?

  1. I really like number 1! I have never seen the bees/beehive done that way before. It is classic yet uniquely interesting.

    It is true that your heart skips a beat when you see your name carefully written across the front of a card.
