The Pen to Paper Challenge.

As a Pearista for Pear Tree Greetings, I have accepted their Pen to Paper Challenge. If you don’t know, Pearista is a group of bloggers sponsored by Pear Tree Greetings that really value the power of connecting though stationary.

The Challenge: Write a hand written note once a week for the next 4 weeks and send it through snail mail! Pear Tree Greetings was super amazing awesome enough to send me 4 cards to send out with 4 cards to include in each note I send for the recipients (So, they can then send their own little notes!).

Who’s getting my first note? My sister. Shhh… don’t tell her! Even though she reads my blog. 🙂 I miss my sister. She lives in the future. a.k.a. New Zealand (they’re a day ahead of us there. 😀 ) and that’s just a little too far. I’m sad she doesn’t get to see Ruari go through all her milestones in person. So, I took some time to write a little note.

Also included in the note: 

I made a little paper bear for her to enjoy… along with a stamped foot and handprint from Ruari.

Writing a hand written note means a lot to me. I LOVE to send cards just randomly to tell my friends how awesome they are… to tell my sister I miss her… or to say Happy Chocolate Cupcake Day (This is a REAL national day!). I love receiving hand written notes (*hint *hint ;D). So much better than all those bills I get!

What’s in it for me? Well… I get to put a smile on my sisters face. AND, Pear Tree Greetings will choose one Pearista Post each week to win $50 towards some awesome goodies, like Christmas cards, at Pear Tree Greetings. Yeah!

Why don’t you give Pear Tree Greeting a visit. See what you can find: personalized note card, Christmas Card or birth announcement.

The numbers have been reset! Help me get in the top 10! I ♥ you!

    You have inspired me, again. I totally need to randomly send things in the mail to the people I care about. We're all so about technology these days. We forget how much it means to take a little extra time to actually send something. It's so nice to be on the receiving end! Love those cards!
