    I’m totally in! I’m already supplying some stationery from Paper Mouse to three ten year old girls to get them started with National Letter writing month. Great prompts. I don’t want to brag but I do everything on your list already, except postcard to small business and write with a different tool. I can happily do those too! Isn’t this fun?
