For the love of post

All this month, Kathy and I have been wracking our impressively sized brains to create something new and exciting for 16 Sparrows. I think we’ve succeeded. It brings me great pleasure to introduce to you the Letter Writers Alliance! Our mission statement is:
In this era of instantaneous communication, a handwritten letter is a rare and wondrous item. The Letter Writers Alliance is dedicated to preserving this art form; neither long lines, nor late deliveries, nor increasing postal rates will keep us from our mission. As a member of the Letter Writers Alliance, you will carry on the glorious cultural tradition of letter writing. You will take advantage of every opportunity to send tangible correspondence. Prepare your pen and paper, moisten your tongue, and get ready to write more letters!

We have our own official correspondence stationery, member card, and badge. Membership opens up a whole world of free downloads and secret goodies. No “Drink more Ovaltine” here, no sir! Everything we offer is completely legitimate and totally rad. I’m working on a letter writing handbook, Kathy’s putting together an address book and we’ve got a pen pal service. How’s that for exciting?

Also new are two letter-themed stationery sets for sale at my little shop; one based on air mail and one on an illustration I did.

I am having a love/hate relationship with my new printer. It works great when it works. Still, I can’t go back to the inkjet after using the laser. It’s just so sharp and clean looking.
