Celebrating the handwritten love letter on Valentine’s Day

Spell-checkers and delete buttons —they have a lot to answer for if you ask author Michelle Mackintosh. While Michelle’s books are all about learning the art of correspondence, her message is simple: speak from the heart and worry less about making things ‘perfect’.

Your words, other people’s art

If you really don’t have the confidence to put your own creative skills to the test this Valentine’s Day, there is another option. Consider using Cardly, a small business that is reinventing the humble greeting card by matching your words with the skills of professional artists.

Across the miles

Also, remember the humble aerogramme? What a wonderful way of sending a letter to loved ones overseas. This beautiful international aerogramme from Australia Post featuring the Australian Wildflower Purple Tassles will bring a lovely local touch to its foreign destination.
