National Handwriting Day

In this day of computers, more and more information, notes, and letters are sent back and forth via a keyboard and cyberspace. But today is National Handwriting day, so swing by Scrap-n-Stamp's Make-n-Take Bar, select a card to make for someone special and reintroduce yourself to a pen or pencil.

According to the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association (WIMA) website "The purpose of National Handwriting Day is to alert the public to the importance of handwriting. According to WIMA, National Handwriting Day is a chance for all of us to re-explore the purity and power of handwriting." January 23rd was chosen because this is the birthday of John Hancock. John Hancock was the first person to sign the Declaration of Independence.

Participate in National Handwriting Day by writing a note or letter to someone. Love letters are always well received.
