Shabby Chic® Giveaway!!!
Posted by Brette Borow on May 9, 2012 at 9:13 PM
In this age of instant Facebook updates, a constant Twitter feed, and always-convenient email, we’ve lost the art of the letter. In hundreds of years, are our grandkids’ grandkids’ grandkids going to read our love texts like we devour the love letters of the past? I sure hope not. Katie and I were talking about a nice note I received the other day and this very subject came up. She remembers that writing the thank you notes for her wedding felt like so much work…her hand was killing her after writing so many! But she loved that feeling of putting words down on a fancy card, of sending a message to someone who knew it took her more than 30 seconds to press send. Since then she says she tries to keep up correspondence, sending personalized holiday cards and special birthday notes to friends and family because it feels so good and well, nostalgic. I hope I get one this year! ;)
While I can’t relate to writing wedding thank you’s, at least not yet anyway, I do remember when I moved across country from Chicago to LA for college, I loved getting mail. It was so exciting to have something fun to read and I appreciated every note and postcard when I was feeling homesick. I still keep all of the cards and hand-written notes I’ve ever received and personally, I'd always prefer a card that has something meaningful in it than a gift. It's the little things that we take for granted and we never know how much they mean to a person – Even now, going through them makes me happy when I’m stressed or homesick!
So my question for you: If you could write a letter to one person who would it be, and why? It can be someone living, dead or even fictional (I don’t know, maybe you think Katniss really needs a note telling her to flee with Gale before the reaping!).
Three (3) lucky winners will win a sampling of Treasures by Shabby Chic®stationery products available at Michaels Stores; Pens, Journals, Notecards, Stamps and much more.
