52 Weeks of Mail 2014

Would you like to join me? It's very informal. The challenge is to send your friends and family a hand written letter once a week for a year. There is a facebook page but it hasn't been very busy lately. This is more of an individual project. 

I started again the challenge at the start of 2014. I did the same challenge in 2013, you can see my list and photos here

I kept track here on my blog throughout the year of the letters sent and to who they were traveling to.  You can see the list below with some photos.

  1. I am loving this idea, but again, I am a bit of a stationery/paper freak, so no surprise! In fact I blog about the lost art of letter writing. I would love to feature this initiative on the blog. I just 'liked' the FB page (from ritewhileucan), do you maintain it? I follow you via twitter from @ritewhileucan

  2. I loved seeing all of the things you sent last year.
    I am already off to a good start with a care package sent last week & a little something for this week ready to go.
    Once a week is a good goal. I am going to try!
    Thanks for this reminder!
