Writing Letters

I love postcards. They are short and sweet and the thought of writing one is a lot less daunting than writing a whole letter. Letters are work-intensive and require more reflection and 'planning'. For me anyway, because I'm a bit of a perfectionist and need everything to be just right.
Nevertheless, I really want to try and write more of them in the future, not only because sometimes it's great to send longer messages and be able to include little goodies (like poems, or newspaper clippings), but also because I've recently discovered my love for envelopes.  
Envelopes add another layer to a letters. They're a great medium for mail art and can convey a message in themselves.
Here is a one I recently sent to my sister for her birthday:
