Dear Letter Girl,

“I think I love you.”

 You not only create the sweetest

custom address stamps, but then you go and

name some of them (okay, one)

after me TO THE LETTER!

 (See Michele design above.)

Just when I think I couldn’t feel annnnnyyyy

fancier, you outdo yourself again.

You go and make the stamp a self-inker.

In addition to the Michele,

every single style Gina designs is lovely.

Letter Girl’s crushworthy stationery

and stamps may just inspire you

to keep in touch the old fashioned way.


Quote of the Week

I mean, we could all


start writing letters again, yes?


this lettergirl lovin’ blogger thinks.

Find these at Zinnia

Remember the other day’s teeny weeny customizable

handthrown plates by Zinnia?

I have a new favorite to share:

Merci dish

Don’t get me wrong.

On planet Michele, we all believe

getting your favorite number

stamped into a sassy ceramic lovely is swell.

But look at precious merci above

isn’t she a tres bien reminder

to be grateful everyday?

(Or for a thank you gift?)

I LOVE Hawaii, but
the closest I’ll get to it this year
is visiting this charming shop right here.

Aloha Letterpress wooed me with

their Hawaiian-happy,


understated lovely.

Aloha Letterpress

When I think customized lovely and correspondence,

I can’t help but think




lovely letter press

like this.

And pleeeeeeez…

you don’t have to be as conservative as lil’ ol’ me

who wanted the plain white!

Nor must you spend a fortune.

Letterpress can be pricey;

so how cool is it that Aloha Letterpress

offer smallish quantities???

Here you go…some color for you meanies shaking ‘the boring stick’ at me again.

It’s kind of a win-win, this letterpress, ya know?

First, you sit down with pen and

YOUR senses are delighted

and then whammo!

It gets mailed, and the lucky recipient’s are.

custom rubber stamps

Sort of makes me want to leap through the air

in my pointe shoes like a sockmonkey in a tutu.

(Ummmmm. Stacey, where is her tiara? I demand an explanation.)

And don’t forget!

Rubber stamps…like the

magical custom beauties created here

can be used for more than simply paper.

Clay! Muslin pouches! Think of the possibilities!

This shop will hook you up

for success and help make those

crafty dreams of yours come true.

BTW, stampers in the know have discovered

clear clings with an acrylic block…wanna be in the know?

I am feelin’ fancier just BLOGGING about

all this LETTER HAPPY custom LOVELY.

I guess sometimes we need to be gently

nudged into old-fashioned correspondence

with pretty pretty custom lovely.


Go on, sexy, go write a letter!!!

(uncalled for)

Be a diva, darlin’, go design a stamp!!!!

(I’m so 2000 and late)

Make it pretty, and by all means

make it custom!!!!!

and don’t forget to enter my giveaway!

Please leave a comment if only

to harrass this blogger for unnecessary

lameness and plead that she lose the

the exclamation key!!!!!

Sometimes even I am surprised

I am this whack.

Peace to you right where you are.

    Hi Michele, thankyou for your lovely comment on my blog…I'm glad you like my little mate (even though he's a grey one)…and you have made ME smile with this beautiful stationery…so many options…I love the idea of handwriting letters again, on gorgeous monogrammed paper…emails are easy and convenient but nothing is as personal as handwritten correspondence (albeit with my scrawl)…have a great weekend.

    confession: this was my first experience with letterpress and self-inking stamps…seriously! so i'm like a giddy kid.

    i have always written lots of letters but receive very few in return!
