My Giveaway #2 of 2016! Your chance to win!

Are you one who still likes to write letters longhand? I know it’s a fading art. In fact, it’s becoming a fading skill.

Writing is healthy for the brain. You have to concentrate in a different way, both to think of your words and to manually form the letters to write them, so it exercises two skills at once. It’s good for you! The more you write longhand the better your writing becomes, unless you’re like me and hurry a bit too much so have to slow down to create a neat legible script. 

I make my own envelopes – most of them from old calendars, a great way to recycle and reuse them. The plain white envelopes that you can buy are okay, good for formal mail; however, I enjoy sending out notes and sometimes bill payments in an envelope I’ve made. (Yes, I’m one who does not use online banking or online bill paying. I’m using the “old way” as long as I can.)

Even if you don’t write letters you may need to mail something now and again. This giveaway is another which will not suit everyone, but perhaps you know someone who would appreciate having this month’s giveaway.  You can direct that person here or enter your own name to try to win for them.

So, what am I giving away? Twelve of my homemade envelopes to one of you!  

As you can see, they’re mostly pictures of beautiful Atlantic Canada. These envelopes are standard letter size.

To enter the draw, simply leave a comment telling me how you would use these envelopes.

Draw date for this giveaway is at 10 PM AST, that’s 9 PM Eastern, on  Wednesday, February 10. This gives you lots of time to pass the word on to others, too. 

I will use Random.org name picker to find out which of you is the winner. Watch here the next morning for the announcement. 

Remember, you have until February 10 to get your name into the draw, but don’t put it off!

PS:  I am prepared to mail these to anywhere.

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
