Ciao Bellas!!!!

I have to admit, I’m not so good at keeping in touch. It’s one of the reasons I started blogging. I couldn’t keep up with the letters, phone calls and emails. I feel so bad about it. I am lucky enough to have friends and family who, after not seeing or talking to for months or years, we are able to visit like it was yesterday when we last saw each other. So I try to give peeks into my life for my family and friends through my blog.

My best friend called me one day (she lives 3000 miles away) and suggested we start a blog together. So we did. It’s starting slowly (busy lives…), but it is gathering momentum and allows us to “see” each other on a more regular basis.

Even though I’m not so good at it anymore, I still love old fashioned letters in the mail or a postcard. I still do write the occasional note, so I gather up pieces and kits of stationary here and there, and sometimes I make my own. Enjoy these print, stationary and letter links and think about your friend you haven’t talked to in a while and give them a call, write them a note, or send them an email.

{freshly}blended – Nicole’s overview of the Stationary Show in May contains wonderful images of notes, cards and paper.

I love these from skinny happy labels from Every Jot and Tittle
