Lessons on being a Lady Part II - GIVEAWAY!

Something that I have always felt was very important to being a Lady was formal correspondence. I have had pen-pals ever since I was a little girl. There's nothing quite like opening the mailbox to find a hand written envelope with a note from far off places.  Email, facebook, and different IM features have greatly diminished the amount of "snail mail" people send and receive these days.

That makes me sad.
I am a HUGE stationary buff. I have tons of different kids. Formal, casual, childish, you name it, I have it. I am the type of person that draws and colors on the envelopes and puts stickers all over the outside before I mail a letter or card.

Stationary was so important to me that I even designed and made my own wedding invitations and wedding thank yous! It took forever but was totally worth it. We still get compliments on them today.

I think every one needs to send and receive more personal, hand written mail. It brings a smile to your face when you get mail, and you know you're making someone smile when you send a letter or a card.

In fact, if any of you would like to be pen-pals, send me an email so we can swap mailing addresses. 

With that said, I'd like to introduce my very first giveaway to help get all you ladies in training headed down the path to proper correspondence!
