Letters From Paris

What a fabulous idea, Janice, has come up with!  In our current times, the notion of sitting down and writing by hand a (legible) letter or note to someone is sadly becoming a thing of the past.  The age of computers and spell check and texts and emails is making letter writing a lost art form.  In fact, the children of today, many of them, have poor penmanship.  Mostly because the schools are either not teaching it or are not demanding neat, legible handwriting.  A simple thing such as this, that we have probably taken for granted and which used to be a very common skill, is fading away from society.

A handwritten letter from Paris to you or as a wonderful gift to someone special.  Not only does Janice send a letter, she writes it on a hand painted, original watercolor drawing which is a work of art in itself.  I think she's very clever for having thought of this and wish her all the best.

How about this as a gift to a child who hasn't experienced the thrill and excitement associated with receiving something hand written and addressed specifically to them, in their mailbox, not the inbox.
