Cards & Letters gettin’ Better n’ Betters

Oh my, we really enjoyed our Publetters session at Tattooed Mom this week: From elegant letters on linen stationery to scrappy illustrated postcards, it was a great Tuesday.


We wrote to friends in Brooklyn NY and Brewster MA and Madrid ESPAÑA and a very good friend in Oaxaca MEXICO and also, for the first time, we wrote to Kannapolis NC! We sent a story to Quiet Riot – care of their agent in West Hollywood CA; and we wrote a number of cards to that life of the party, U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey. And last but not least, we penned sincere letters to: “TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN”, care of Furnace Creek Resort in Death Valley CA, -and- one to “Our Future Self”, care of the writer. Got us to thinking, those did…

IF YOU HAVEN’T BEEN TO PUBLETTERS YET… Next Tuesday (3/28) would be a perfect evening to start–it’s our last one at Tattooed Mom. For April, we’ll be at LOCAL 44 (at 44th + Spruce, which many believe is the exact spot where University City becomes West Philly) First one is April 4th. We go back to our regular start time of 7 p.m. and end around 9-ish.  FREE, of course, thanks to Trophy Bikes (the shop that’s open a LOT) and Yards Brewing (who would be great even if all they ever made was Philly Pale Ale) .
