Letter Month Was a Bust

gumby and pokey, mail reminder, letter monthSigh…I only sent fifteen pieces of mail in Letter Month. Sad, right? February was one of those months where it felt like I was constantly preparing for something and then failing to be fully prepared. I kept putting off writing to get other stuff done but then I’d waste time on my phone or “researching” ideas for things coming up in March and garden stuff for the summer. Dumb.

Though I did finally break down and buy this Martha Stewart stamp set that I’ve been wanting for years…no regrets. And I finally sent some overdue thank you notes and replied to all the mail from January. This month I’m working on replying to the stuff I received in February. I’m planning a little letter writing session tonight once I get all my laundry folded and put away. letter month mail, letter writing, mail, stampsAs usual, I’m glad I participated, even though I didn’t meet my goal, and I’m looking forward to Write On for National Letter Writing Month in April. (I’ve already ordered my kit!)

So, how did you do?

    This was the first year I actually tried to participate in LetterMo and only got 8 letters sent. So you did better than me! But I’ve been participating in the Write On challenge for the last few years and I do a lot better with that. Although I’ve only sent 30 letters in 30 days once. Hopefully I’ll do it again this year 😀 Happy writing!

      Hi Cindy! I think I like Write On better because it doesn’t fall so close to Christmas, when I feel like I’m sending a lot of obligatory mail. Succeed or not, I love a good challenge!

    I found that cute stamp set myself at an odd time of year in an unexpected place – Tuesday Morning I think – Love it!

    Let’s not talk about how much mail was not sent. We just shouldn’t. I submit, each letter is a gift and that makes even one a Gem… with respect to Gems, they’re pretty good gifts no matter how many you give 😉 (apparently I have enough pressing challenges in my life that letter writing simply doesn’t/can’t fit into the category – when I get one or three out, I feel accomplished – so each Gem from me is rare… doesn’t that make it better? please say yes)

    Happy Pi Day, by the way!
