Description:

I sometimes wonder if anyone uses cursive handwriting these days. Schools don't teach it anymore and it has become quite the topic in the media questioning its relevancy.

My unpopular opinion would be that even though modern tech doesn't leave much room for the need of this skill, it still is pretty to look at and we do need to sign checks once in a while! :P

Happy to continue this series on! :)

  • @SeleneW is hosting the INTL version!**

If you are a stationery connoisseur like myself, you may find yourself pining away after fancy letter sets :) They're just so cute and posh!

For this swap, we will be writing a letter to 1 partner on a letter set. To be considered a letter set, there must be a matching sheet of paper with an envelope. Can be more than one sheet, but minimum one.

Please choose at least 3 of the following topics to write about in your letter:

  • How do you feel about "retail therapy"?

  • What's your favorite letter to write in cursive?

  • What do you pass out for Halloween to trick-or-treaters?

  • What TV show/series never fails to cheer you up?

  • What is your ideal "letter-writing" type of weather? And where would you write?

  • Who is your celebrity look-a-like?

The fine details of this, that, and the other etc:

  • one partner!

  • 4.95+ rating

  • no 1s/3s unexplained

  • USA only

  • letter set with AT LEAST one sheet of matching paper

  • minimum of 25 type 2 / 3 swaps completed

Where do you find a letter set?

@nanabarb57 Papyrus is one of the stores I buy letter sets from. They are a little bit more difficult to find but you can also find vintage sets on Ebay and Etsy.

Here is a webpage for Papyrus letter set stationery

@cmalaina I would suggest picking up a workbook from the Handwriting Without Tears cursive selection to practice in. It does take a while to train yourself but with self motivation it will come.

You can search for it on Amazon under "Learning Without Tears - Cursive Kickoff Student Workbook" which is one of the first in the series.
