I {Heart} Happy Mail

You know when you get one – the envelope is notecard sized, your address handwritten – and you can’t wait to get inside and open it up.  If you’re like me, you curl up on the sofa, papercut your finger trying to open the envelope (just being real), and savor the words of a friend.

You know what I {maybe} love more than getting a nice long letter from a friend?  Writing one. Picking the stationary, selecting the pen, chosing the words and sharing the small snippets of my life all help me slow down and connect to people and moments that matter.

Handwritten letters received are a blessing.  Handwritten letters sent are even more so.

Loving the handwritten letter like I do, I tend to stockpile letter writing supplies – even stamps that I order from usps.com so I don’t just get what my office has on hand.   These are my current favorites.

But I’m a fan of these as well.

Here are a couple of other supplies in my drawer:

I love this stamp from Yellow Heart Art. I’m just going to have to use it on all my outgoing letters from here on out.


And then I stumbled on Julie Ann Art, this woman’s shop could empty my bank account.  It’s sassy and funny and I absolutely love it.  I picked up a just because card for the mister (I’m not saying which one), a few for my pen pals and this one for my Gram.

And because birthday season is coming up and that means thank yous I found these at Paper Mill Designs for the littles.  They also have some amazing letterpress that I have on my wishlist.

So now that I’ve shared a little of my paper love with you, I’m going to sit down and share it with my pen pal friends.  Do you have any favorite stationary places on the webs?  Please share, I’m always looking for more!
