J. wouldn't let me take a nap today. So what's a tired mom to do? I browsed the DIY section of Design Sponge and ended up finding a brilliant way to monogram paper! Very, very cool for people like me who prefer old fashioned "snail mail" to email.
On a somewhat related note, does anyone else detest the new "techno-slang" popping up everywhere (ie: "ttyl", etc.)? I mean, come ON! It's practically an abomination to the English language. And this in addition to the street-slang we've adopted. Ok, I admit I've used my share of "lol"s (laugh out louds), but I'm trying to cut back. I feel it's like an unhealthy addiction. Maybe it's not that bad, but seriously, I don't want to be around for the generation that loses the ability to craft beautiful handwritten letters. This particular project has inspired me to do a little more writing and a little less typing.
Anyhow, receiving a letter in the mail ranks right up there with earl grey tea, finding a great book, and the smell of fresh baked bread straight from the oven. Call me old-fashioned, but it makes my day writing a letter just as much as reading one too! I think I'll make some monogrammed stationary sets for some friends as Christmas gifts. (Never too early to start on Christmas gifts!) :o)
