I just had to share this total genius little package that arrived in my letterbox today! I joined the Letter Writers Alliance back in January, but sadly (ironically) my membership package was lost in transit :-(. However, the lovely Donovan was kind enough to send me a replacement, which – as you can see! – has just arrived! 🙂
For just $3, you too can have such fun stuff delivered to your door (or buy an ultra-cool stationery set, & get membership free!). I’m sure everybody knows by now how much I adore all things postal, so a society in honour of hand-written communication is of course right up my alley (see also my own Post Post Post Club). This is the LWA’s mission statement:
“In this era of instantaneous communication, a handwritten letter is a rare and wondrous item. The Letter Writers Alliance is dedicated to preserving this art form; neither long lines, nor late deliveries, nor increasing postal rates will keep us from our mission. As a member of the Letter Writers Alliance, you will carry on the glorious cultural tradition of letter writing. You will take advantage of every opportunity to send tangible correspondence. Prepare your pen and paper, moisten your tongue, and get ready to write more letters!”
How can you not be drawn in?!
The LWA is hosted by design duo Kathy & Donovan, of sarcastic cards company, 16 sparrows – for those who are sick of traditional bland and/or saccharine greetings. Thus the LWA can also boast access to a pretty awesome range of stationery. There are also lots of free downloads, not to mention exclusives for members-only. I also love the blog, which highlights all the latest cool stuff in the world of letter-writing, mail art & all related products. Everyone knows (well, maybe) that as well as all things postal, and despite the fact I have a tendency to kill all but the hardiest plants that I do love green stuff & stuff-that-grows; so I am totally smitten with one of the LWA’s recent posts about the PostCarden. Check out the PostCarden site for full details – that is truly mail art at its finest!
Anyway, enough of this chit-chat – I’m off to explore the LWA’s members-only pages – maybe I’ll see you there!
