Oh yes, I do love #Postcircle, started by the fabulous Miss Beatrix. It reignited my enjoyment of letter-writing, brought new friends into my life and gave me a legitimate excuse to buy more pretty stationery – wins all round! There’s something so satisfying about sitting down to write a letter, and it’s great to spy some happy post in amongst a pile of junk mail or bills!
It was actually a chat over on Twitter that first drew my attention to this lovely little world, and so I eagerly investigated and signed up. From these Twitter chats, I also have several other pen pals now (they’re fabulous, of course), outside of #PostCircle, but there’s no doubt that it sparked it all off.
So I now have myself a letters box, filled with my correspondence and an array of writing sets and washi tape – all necessary, you understand? Hmm, a nice antique bureau will be needed next, I think…!
When I was a teenager, I always had pen pals, several from around the world, and a few from the UK, too. I remember wanting to be a postman for a while, too, as I do love post! Of course, they all tailed off (along with my desire to be a postman..), and I hadn’t really thought much about it until I saw #PostCircle mentioned, and I knew I’d want to get involved. Actually, I do have a few letters to write, so best be off…
Want to know more? Here’s the link to Miss Beatrix’s page, and there will be a #PostCircle Twitter party tonight, as it’s turning one! Just look out for #PostCircle, partying from 8-10pm.
Are you a fan of snail mail? Or is it just better to email?!
