Write a Little Letter

It’s Valentine’s Day weekend … the perfect time to share your love for scrapping through the Sweet Talk Journaling Challenge!

Now that we’ve covered lists, ABCs, conversations, fairy tales, compare/contrast and show & tell journaling, we’re going to try an approach using a skill learned long ago, but sometimes forgotten in today’s age of cell phones, Twitter, emailing and texting.

Sweet Talk Journaling Challenge #7

For this challenge, we are going to go back to the basics and quite simply, tell your story by writing a letter. This could be a letter to a spouse, your children, your parents …even to yourself. In light of Valentine’s Day, this might be the perfect excuse to write out all of those loving thoughts to your beloved. Or if you’re not in the mood, maybe you just have something to get off your chest. You might even have a letter someone has written to YOU that you’d like to remember in a scrapbook page.

By the way, if you like this style of journaling, you might want to check out this cool blog. There you’ll find a new prompt every Friday to inspire you to do more personal letter-writing, particularly if you have children.

To get yourself in the letter-writing mode, check out these bits of inspiration …
