...these are packages of my Letter Service. the one on the bottom is on its way to Australia! i like you Australia, you are good to me.
i would never share what people write in their letters, its a secret, but i can share that again and again i am touched by their sweetness and warm words. typing up the lasted bunch of letters i had this thought, "people are nice." the letters are filled with love and kindness and i'm honored that I get to help create these tokens of affection. the mad positive feedback i've been receiving is a great motivation too.
but i've got to change things up a bit. using the vintage paper is going to push me over the edge. its too inconsistant. sometimes it rips when i type or won't roll, or the typewriter will type holes into the thin paper. i love the color and patina of a naturally aged piece of vintage book paper. its really got to be one of my favorite things, but after typing three letters twice last night I decided I must save my sanity and start using nice vintage-y looking paper. yellowed, maybe tea-stained paper. i hope people will understand.
what do you think about the paper? i worry that the it's too late to change, but the more i make the letters the more i learn that things need to evolve to grow with your needs. i just hope that i carry over the original idea with a different paper....
such stress over a little thing, but thats how i do....
