The fabulous Bernadette from Slow Family Living is hosting another Mama Crafty Night. Here’s an email I received from her with all of the details:
Who doesn’t love a handwritten card in the mail???? Whose heart doesn’t burst when the mailbox is opened and there’s an actual letter, written with love and addressed with good old fashioned penmanship? And who doesn’t love a night of making stuff with mamas with a little beer and wine in the mix??!
Just in time for Mother’s Day, come to Mama’s Make Fest and celebrate the art of the letter. Drink a little drink. Eat a little nosh. And make and talk all night long. (well, til 10 anyway.)
We’ll cut/stamp/draw/collage/fold up our very own cards and stationery using piles of beautiful recycled/reclaimed and repurposed materials and other fun stuff you won’t even believe.
Then we’ll focus in on reviving the centuries old art of the letter.
Maybe it’s a letter to your grandma to thank her for the socks she made you. Remember she sent them four months ago and you still haven’t said thanks?
Or maybe a note to your mom to tell her what an amazing mom she’s been.
Or maybe you’ve been itching to write a letter to a long lost college pal who is such a Luddite you can’t find her on Facebook.
We’ll start with the question, Who do you need/want to write to?
And from there we’ll get making. With custom cards specific to your needs.
We’ll have all the materials necessary to create your very own pile of handmade cards and stationery. We’ll introduce the back and forth card ala Round Robin Press
And together we’ll work to revive the lost art and reinvigorate your love and desire for the handwritten letter.
