I'm one of those people who measure a good week by what they find in their mailbox. And this week has been a postal bonanza!
I've received letters from California, Texas, and New Jersey; post cards from Arkansas, Pennsylvania, and Peru, and a birthday card from north Louisiana.
Of course, I did my part to brighten other people's mail boxes by sending letters to California and Hawaii; post cards to Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, and Australia.
I've had even more than post cards and letters in my mailbox. My Noodler's flex fountain pen arrived yesterday! It lives up to all the good reviews. It produces quite a range of line width and is a nice looking pen, too. Since it's a piston filler, it holds a lot of ink. All this goodness for $14.00! Unbelievable! I've loaded it with Noodler's Iraqi Indigo ink and plan to put it to work writing a letter before the day is out.
My membership packet from the Letter Writers Alliance arrived, too. It included a membership card, a cool pin with the LWA logo, and LWA stationery. Membership in LWA also allows you to download nifty notecards, stationery, etc., from the website and print them on your own paper.
I'm off now to write a letter to the 2011 Letter Project - with my new Noodler's pen, of course.
