Friday Feature

Today is National Handwriting Day. According to Holiday Insights " National Handwriting Day was established by the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association in 1977. Their motive is obvious...to promote the consumption of pens, pencils, and writing paper.
January 23rd was chosen because this is the birthday of John Hancock. John Hancock was the first person to sign the Declaration of Independence. "

With the use of computers and email, handwritten notes seem obsolete. But think how special you would make someone feel with a handwritten note. Here are some etsy finds to help you keep this art alive.
