Reach out to your loved ones in distant places with this "OLD-SCHOOL" art form.
Do you remember how amazing it was to go to your mailbox and find a letter, not a bill or junk mail, but an actual letter? Seasons Greetings? Birthday cards? How does that make you feel?
In the past, the act of writing letters was the only way to share personal journeys with friends and family. Our grandparents set aside time to create something magical. Sending mail to tell loved ones a story of their lives. When you are distant from friends and family in this age of technology, it is easy to connect. Technology is wonderful, but it is also great to slow down, be mindful and create a little something with your hands. Create connection and send a little piece of you to some one you love. Join us, as we revive snail mail.
REASONS to revive snail mail.
- Make amazing thoughtful greeting cards/letters & put a smile on a friend’s face.
- Explore unique ways to create unique paper gifts to send with letters.
- Keep in touch with your grandchildren that live outside of your community.
- Communicate with your adult children in new ways!
There will be a brief presentation on technique and how to use materials. The rest of your time is spent making your personalized greeting cards and letters (aka. snail mail)! You will leave with cards, unique stationery and envelopes to start or continue on your writing adventure.
