An envelope with my name on it, a drawing of an amigurumi Elf and the promise of an illustrated letter winging it’s way to me from Ziggy Shortcrust.
Do you receive letters anymore? And I don’t mean bills and junk mail. I am referring to the handwritten letter from family and friends, lovingly composed, slipped into an envelope and popped into a post box. No, I don’t suppose you do, and I expect you rarely put pen to paper yourself. It’s too easy to communicate via email and text. The hand written letter is an endangered species. So, I have decided to revive the art of letter writing and have set myself the challenge of writing a letter a day during 2013. But more than just words these will be illustrated with a Ziggy Elf. Would you like to join in this challenge and help me get letters flying around the world? If so, email me your postal address to ziggy. shortcrust @ gmail .com and I’ll send you an illustrated letter. If you want to reply to the letter that would be fantastic and, with your permission, I’ll post it up on my blog.
