31 Postcards in 31 Days

Being real homebodies, we have really been on the lookout for new hobbies and ways of both keeping busy and learning new things. Personally, i'm really into letter writing. There's something nostalgic and cathartic about putting pen to paper, whether that be in a thank you note, a letter to a friend or starting new contact with a stranger. For as long as I can remember, receiving letters/post has been something I really appreciate as it's like a little bit of sunshine from someone else straight into your home.

With that in mind, we went searching for cool letter writing projects to take part in after having taken part in Oh Comely's amazing November Parcel Swap last year. (they're running it again this year too!) There are a lot out there but we've decided to start with this month's #31postcards project whereby you send 31 postcards (to friends, family or strangers) in the 31 days of October. You can also send your address/PO box if you'd like to get some in return! Next month we'll be taking part in Oh Comely's parcel swap again to exchange winter warming goodies with a stranger.

If any of you are also into letter-writing and parcel sending, you should check out The Postal Service, it's a small but extremely active community of dedicated letter writers! We also hope to be signing up to Foodie Pen Pals in the future :)

For now, we're finishing up with our #31postcards! Do you write/receive letters often?
