Welcome!  Thanks for taking the time to learn a little bit more about me and the blog.

I am a passionate advocate for the lost art of letter writing. Feel free to listen to this clip as I share my passion for putting pen to paper.

My hope is that this blog will fuel a desire to connect with people through the writing of a letter, a note, or postcard.

Most weeks I will post on Saturdays for your weekend read. For behind-the-scenes info and sweet deals on my favorite stationery and papery stuff. Make sure you subscribe to my weekly newsletter (link in the sidebar).

As much as I love the analog world I also enjoy the ‘social’ part of social media. You will find me at  Pinterest,  Twitter, Facebook BlogLovin’ or Instagram.

For an example of how a connection through a handwritten card can mean so much, head to MakeItMerry, a project that invites people to send a Christmas card to the homeless.

Random Tidbits about Barb

Rather than write the traditional bio, I will instead share some weird and wonderful facts about myself in the hopes that this will allow you to get to know me better.

1) This blog took shape in March of 2013. It came about as a result of moving across the country and writing letters back and forth with family and friends. That, and the fact that I am a stationery freak.
2) Granny Smith apples cut up and dipped in peanut butter are one of my favorite snacks. Of course, if given a box ofPurdy’s sea salt caramel dark chocolate chocolates, I am quite capable of scarfing them down before anyone is the wiser!
3) I try not to take things too seriously.
4)My professional background is in the field of Human Resources.
5)Once upon a time I lived in Mexico for 3 months – loved my experience there.
6)I do my best thinking and praying while exercising. You should try it. The time just flies!
7)There are 3 ‘little’ people in my life – although the oldest (19) would not be impressed to be called such.
8)One of my fears is not having a close relationship with my girls when they become adults. And tornados freak me out.
9)I have the love of a good man.
10)Letter writing and reading are two passions of mine.
11) And let’s not forget the crazy curly hair-had to come to terms with that in Gr. 6!
And so there you have it. Random tidbits indeed!
