I have been participating in a couple letter-writing campaigns during the month of October designed to encourage paper lovers to send more mail. Apparently, paper lovers hoard stationery and refuse to send them out into the world. I’ve managed to send 15 handwritten personal notes during the month of October. It was a bit of a challenge, but it was fun no-less. To make this challenge extra exciting, everyone who shared their mailing address with me during October, will be entered into a drawing for a FAB prize from Christoff Davis. The drawing will be held November 1, 2013.
