Just a quick update to let you all know I’m working on your letters! 🙂 To avoid spamming everyone every day, I will be posting letters on Tuesdays around 10 am (EST). (Tuesdays are the most boring days, so I’m hoping to brighten them for you all. <3) This will be the first time I implement a weekly post schedule, but I’m excited! Please note that sign-ups/requests are now closed! (But I may do something similar for the holiday season, so stay tuned! 🎁)
First up: Rachel! Rachel, thank you for being the first to request a letter from me! It means you’re the first to be subjected to my inconsistent handwriting and mediocre doodles. 🙂 I hope you enjoy it!
Two pages from a Moleskine journal, letter is written in purple marker. Doodles include falling leaves, nuts, sprigs of random nature, and a cutely spooky haunted house scene. The letter reads:
You’re new here — welcome! I’m super grateful to you for following and commenting. ❤ You were the first, so please excuse what is sure to be a bit of a mess… of handwriting and content…
For my first (not quite) giveaway, I wanted to do something personal, creative/hands-on, and not too time consuming. I thought writing notes/letters would be perfect; and it provides a specific audience.
So, Rachel, as I write this, I am stalking your blog to get to know you a little (while also working, looking at Pinterest, and thinking about lunch). I’m two posts in and I already love your voice. You’re an excellent storyteller. I am endlessly fascinated by homeschool systems, so I hope you share more about that. How does it work? Did you like it? Can your sister join a choir through your community somehow? (By the way, the last time I was on [an] inflatable obstacle course thing… I broke a toe. Yep.)
Also, TOP GUN! 80s Tom Cruise was a BABE. Yes!
Your posts have me cracking up. You’re hilarious. More please! (Particularly, more stories and cake photos — because wow, girl! Yum!)
I have to get back to work now (I was too excited to wait, so I’ve been huddled over and scribbling away), but I hope you liked this little note. Thank you again for following me and letting me write to you. ❤
