I love this! Totally cute! :)


I am in San Jose, please tell me where in San Francisco is LWA meeting?

Sofia - The San Francisco letter social just happened this past Saturday. It was at Arch Drafting Supply and they are planning on doing another one. Here is a post about the social: http://goodmailday.wordpress.com/2011/09/17/snail-mail-social-correspondents-wanted/


We made it to the one at Arch & got a couple of free LWA pencils but didn't hear anything about inklings (probably because we got there late since we stopped for lunch & shopping at Japan Town first). :-(

What would be a good example of doing unique/interesting things to promote mail/letter writing?


I nominated this blog as a Versatile Blogger site! Here's the link if you're interested: http://howsheflowers.wordpress.com/2011/10/11/versatile-blogger/

Keep up the awesome work!

Creating a free download, hosting a letter-writing social, starting a mail art call...
You tell and show us! Part of the fun is seeing what you can come up with, rather than us just telling you what to do.


Ooh, goody....so excited! What will be the forum for us to tell you what we've done?


Mail in your documentation and/or post it in the LWA Flickr!


I got an inkling from Carolee on Saturday -- so thank you all very much. The Social at ARCH was great fun and Carolee and Annie did a wonderful job.

This is so cool I wish I had one, well maybe it's about time to collect some of these for a hobby.
