I Wrote 52 Letters!

 Hello! I'm happy to report that I accomplished my goal of writing 52 letters in 2021! It was a close call, though. I wrote four letters as we were getting ready for Midnight Mass (meaning I finished around 9 pm). Whoops, procrastination certainly hit me, especially while I had my summer job and during finals week. 

Without further ado, here are the pictures of my last letters: 

Week 51:
For this week, I wrote to my 5th grade teacher again. It has been so fun to reconnect with her through the art of letter writing! Since I was behind, I used a piece of notebook paper for the letter and decorated the envelope with a Spirograph design. The circle area makes a great area for the address too. 

Design made using the "Spirograph Shapes Set"

Week 52:
This was a BIG week of letter writing. I won't bore you with my writing, so enjoy the pictures! 

A letter to my 8-month old niece! I will be giving 
this to her when she can read. :)

Letter #2 was to my older brother AND written
in all cursive. Envelope art is by my brother, Esteban.

A Christmas package for my pen pal: Two letters, 
our family Christmas Card, a Sacred Heart journal, 
a Nativity scene painting, a Christmas playlist,
and our Bible in a Year reading plan

Calligraphy practice!

Another envelope art made with my
trusty ol' Spirograph

My final letter to Michelle Houts, the author
who started this challenge

Thanks to all who followed along on my letter writing journey! I had so much fun writing to new people and reconnecting with others. I plan on doing it again in 2022, as well as writing some posts on letter writing. 

What is the most letters you've written in a week? Did you write to anyone new this year?
