Letter Month Kick Off And Some Autographs

Standard

A month of letters officially starts for me today! YAY!

For those of you who don’t know, I am going to write at least one piece of happy mail each day this month. This morning I sat to write a letter to Shannon B., as well as make up an envelope for my niece. She collects postcards, and since I have a huge collection, every so often I send her a few. She’s also making my wedding programs, so I sent her a few things in regards to what I want on them.

My stationary I bought from Lapapierre on Etsy, my address book, stamper and stickers for my envelope.

I was pretty stoked writing this letter. After the blah winter we have been having, it feels good getting back into the groove of things.

The envelope for my niece and my finished letter. Oh, and my new Game of Thrones journal. I had nothing at hand to cover the address, so it gave me an excuse to throw that in there 😉 I can’t wait to start filling its pages!

I had a slow incoming mail month in January. But one of those items was an autograph to add to my collection!

Hugh Dancy

About three months ago I wrote to Hugh Dancy, who is currently on the TV show ‘Hannibal’. (Which is an awesome show! Didn’t think I would like it but ate up two seasons in about two weeks!) I was pretty excited to get this.

And since I am a big bookworm, I can’t believe I forgot to post about this next autograph success!

Jodi Picoult

I got this autographed card back from one of my fave authors a couple of months ago. Since I am making a book themed Smashbook (more on that later), I will dedicate a page to her and add this autograph to it.

Who else out there is doing Letter Writing Month? I hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!

    Whoa– I can’t believe you got autographs from actual real-life celebrities (haha!). I always feel like any attempt I make at fan mail will be futile. Have you reached out to celebrities (whether they be actors or authors) before this?

    And good luck in your letter writing!

    Hey! I have been writing fan mail for about a year now. I have many letters still out with hopes of a response, and others I still need to write. If you like, I can write a blog post soon on tips on how to do it 🙂 I touched base on it once awhile ago, but would happily do an official post on it. I have only heard back from one author (so far!!0, but have gotten quite a few celebs, including Tim Burton, four cast members from Bitten, Walton Goggins, Kurt Russell, Kyle Schmid, Caity Lotz from Arrow, David Labrava from Sons Of Anarchy and more.
