    Woohoo! I am so excited to win!

  2. colleen

    My last handwritten note was to the detectives that helped find my lost daughter. I was extremely happy and thanked them for all their help.

  3. Laurie

    I regularly write to my grandmother who does not have a computer or cell phone. Each time I do it I enjoy the process of putting pen to paper so much! Thank you for the giveaway 🙂

  4. denise cangelosi

    My last handwritten letter was to my long-lost sister whom I had met for the first time just 4 months before. It was sent to console her on the death of her husband of more than 30 years.

  5. Patricia

    The last written letter was last week to my grand daughter she is 11 and we write back and forth to practice the art of letter writing and her pinmanship. Thanks for the all the lovely project and the chance to win.

  6. Sav O'G

    I send handmade cards all the time…but a handwritten letter….??? Not sure! I guess it would be when I sent my husband a letter when we were dating. We met and I left for 3 months–so I would write weekly. This was almost 6 years ago! WOW! That is a long time ago: ) THANKS for the chance to win! sbmmhoover at yahoo dot com

  7. Carolina Garrido

    I love handwritten letters and try to write very often.

  8. Kristie Maynard

    The last handwritten letter I wrote was to a customer thanking them for their purchase. Other than that it has been years as I have terrible handwriting and usual type them up and print them from the computer.

  9. Julie in Edmonds

    Wow. A “letter” letter? Yikes…no idea. I do send my mom a card every week though and jot down what’s going on with us and the kids though. Does that count? 🙂

  10. Emily Smith

    I wrote one last week. I love sending real mail. It is so fun to get toO! Especially when its a little box of ribbon! 🙂

  11. Joy Hager

    Lovely prize package! About three weeks ago I wrote to a friend 🙂

  12. Elizabeth P

    It’s been way over a year, wrote a short note on paper and slipped it into a handmade card for my aunt. I really need to do that once every couple of weeks at the very least. Thanks for the reminder and another great giveaway.

  13. Nancy Souza

    Last week I sent a letter inside a card I bedecked with May Arts ribbon. It was to a friend who had lost her mom, and I always try to personalize those sentiments with a handwritten letter of condolence.

  14. Lucy

    The last hand written letter I wrote was at Christmas time. That is probably the only letter I write all year -every Christmas to a girlfriend 🙂

  15. ava

    wow, this was a fun week…… spring is here and the outside fresh air is calling our names…. thanks for the great week of fun

  16. Larissa Heskett

    I sent some hand written letters along with cards for Easter!! I LOVE doing that for holiday’s and birthdays and sometimes just because I’m thinking of someone!! THANKS for the fun this week and have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!! =)

  17. Natasha G.P.

    I haven’t written a letter in about a year. I have written in cards, but not letters very often.

  18. B. Poteraj

    I would say that the last time I wrote a real letter was about one month ago. I mostly email, but occasionally write real ones…

  19. Sharon Gullikson

    The last time was about a week ago. I like to write them, and LOVE to get them.

  20. SuZeQ

    I am fixin’ to mail a handwritten letter tomorrow to my two pen pals. The girls are seven and 11 years old and sisters. It’s so much fun writing to them and more fun to read their letters. Everybody should have a pen pal!!!!

  21. Kathy P

    II need to get more Elizabeth Park already….used all mine up with all the inspiration this week! And my last letter was just after Christmas, to a dear high school friend!

  22. {vicki}

    Just this week. I have a friend that I send hand written letters to once a month.

  23. HeatherC

    I send a LOT of cards with notes in them, but the last LETTER… was when I was in college. I would write my boyfriend, now husband, letters each week. The phone bills were too costly, so I wrote letters instead!

  24. Lisa P

    Just last week I wrote to my mom. Still love the personal touch of a handwritten letter.

  25. izzyb

    I sent a handwritten note to my Grandma last week to let her know I was thinking of her. The note was inside a card I made for. The last time I hand-wrote an actual letter, hmmmmm, to Santa?!

  26. ava g

    I wrote a letter to a lady friend i met on my jan trip to costa rica. Back in Feb 2011. Our trip was grand and a few of us are also keeping in touch using the internet.

  27. Janice

    I send a handwritten letter every month or so to my Grandmother who is in a nursing home. I don’t get to see her as often as I would like so to brighten her day I send her cards and letters.

  28. f lynn rush

    i always include a letter with the cards i send. the last ones i did was less than a week ago.

  29. Cynthia B.

    The last handwritten notes/letters would to my in-laws, thanking them for their hospitality (and generous gifts to my kids!) at Christmas time.
    Fun products! I’ve really enjoyed May Arts + LYB this week!

  30. erin

    I try to send cards fairly often, I just sent one to my friend in NZ saying I was thinking of her.

  31. Annette A.

    I have a pen pal that we write back and forth all the time. We have been go this for over 10 years.

  32. Toni K

    This is so sad, but I can’t even remember the last time I sent a handwritten note! I do send /give cards with notes in them though 🙂

  33. Peggy Cain

    I hate to admit this but the last time I sent a handwritten letter was a letter of complaint to a medical lab for not billing my insurance correctly and sending me a $300 bill. LOL I do send nice “notes” in the cards I make. Peggy C

  34. DJ

    Wow, am I embarassed, i think the last letter I wrote was a goodbye and thankyou letter to my Mom when she was dying from cancer, I never stop to think about it, I send lots of cards, but not really letters any more, everything is email. Anyway, I was in NJ and Mom in Florida and had been back and forth so many times, , when I was really missing her towards the end, I wanted to thank her for being such a great Mom and sat and wrote to her about all my good and some bad memoreis and just thanked her for being the best Mom there could be, and the hospice nurse read it to her, and they said she cryed and love it, she acutally died about 3 days later, so I guess I have to write more letters!!

    Thanks for the reminder Bethney

  35. Marcia Scantlin

    I sent one a week ago in my niece’s bday card. Yes, I know, who sends bday cards anymore either?

  36. Lindy

    WOW….love the goodies! The last time I wrote a handwritten letter…..hmmmmm a couple of years ago when my brother was serving in Desert Storm. He is leaving for Afghanistan soon so I’m sure I’ll be writing some very soon. Thanks for the chance!

  37. Dolly

    I love the beautiful ribbon and LYB goodies! The last time I sent a hand written letter was 1 year ago to my friends daughter when she broker her leg. Thanks for the chance to win!

  38. jean marmo

    I sent a thank you note last week!

  39. terriavidreader

    Writing inside cards count – if so it was a week ago. If actual full letter it’s probably been a few months. I send cards often with a note inside. Thanks again for a chance to win this giveaway!

  40. Pam

    The last time I sent a hand written letter was to my liittle brother who did not have access to a computer. Thanks for a wonderfully inspiring week and the giveaway chances.

  41. kathy S

    I think the last letter I handwrote was to my mum before she passed she lived 3 1/2 hours away and even though I spoke to her on the phone every week at least once I felt I needed/wanted to let her know how much she meant in my life -she was vision impaired so I wrote large writing but I knew either her next door neighbour or my eldest sister who lived reasonably near would read it for her. I am glad I wrote because she died three weeks later she was 90 years old – that was four years ago. Thanks for the chance to win some yummy ribbon and LYB products and for bringing back happy memories

  42. cathy fong

    I sent a hand written letter to my boyfriend last year.. when i didnt get to meet him for a year long 🙂

  43. Mieke Nagtegaal

    Don’t think I can remember…… that is awful. Just a card to my friends sometimes with some scrapgoodies in there.
    DD is having pen pals, she writes letters almost every week and loving it!

  44. pam allen

    It was about 6 months ago but besides that it was a long time. I think it is a lost art we should bring back 🙂 thanks for giveaway and good luck everyone!!

  45. Tona

    Even though i include notes in the cards I send it’s probably been close to 5 years sent I sent an actual letter.

  46. Christine

    The last time that I sent a hand written letter is when I sent a few pair of sock to The Tsunami victims in Japan. I made a card and wrote a note inside. Then I sent that inside a larger envelope with a few pair of socks to an organization called “socks for Japan”. They have translators who translated my message and sent the socks off to someone in need.

  47. Michelle L.

    Each year at Christmas I add a letter to the card of a former coworker who lives far away. She always sends one, too, so it’s become a nice tradition.

  48. Kelly Sas

    I have to send had written letters to the children at a mission I sponsor. It is a labor of love!

  49. Karen aka Soccerboyzmom

    OK, I am hoping lucky #13 is picked twice in a row then both of us can use our new supplies and ribbon at National Scrapbook Day. I really enjoy how you match the ribbon.

    Now the last letter I wrote was to my MIL on her birthday telling her how wonderful she is even though she is really my X in law.

  50. jengd

    I don’t tend to send handwritten letters per say but I do write quick messages in cards that I send, particuarly for birthdays and anniversaries.

  51. Holly Tolman

    Two weeks ago, I love to tuck a note into a box when it goes to my siblings or just to cheer a friend up.

  52. Sue D

    Usually I send hand written letters to people who live far away during the Christmas season . Last year due to a death in the family no letters were sent out so it has been 2 years.

  53. Leticia Arvizu

    I actually just sent out a handwritten letter today!!! Thanks for this amazing opportunity to win some yummy goodies!! Love your ribbon!!

  54. Shartl

    Wow, just love those goodies and ribbon! The butterflies are so pretty!
    So, the last time I sent a handwritten letter was last week when I wrote to my late Grandpa’s wife. She doesn’t use the computer at all so I write to her and send cards to cheer her up!

  55. Debbie Painter

    Last month was my SIL’s birthday, & I included a handwritten note with some pictures of my Grandson! Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful give away!!
    [email protected]

  56. Aki

    I remember, the last time I send a hand written letter to my friend was about 2 years ago. I send a lot letters at that time but suddenly, she didn’t write to me anymore… T_____T~ Then, I stopped writting letters…

  57. Jan Garber

    I always send hand written letters to my aunts back in the mid-west! Even though two of them have email, I feel it more personal, with the older generation especially, to write them a nice long note in with an occasional card! They always thank me for it so I know it is appreciated.

  58. Tanya soutar

    Last time I sent a letter was to my hubby’s gran before she passed away, she lived in England so I used to send letters, video and photos our our first child.

  59. Crafty-Math-Chick

    A hand written LETTER? On stationary and not on a card I made? …2002? LOL! And that is a guess – I handwrite inside my cards now, but no more stationary… thanks for the chance to win!

  60. Kelly massman

    Thanks! I was sad when I didn’t win! Ha! I’m sure everyone was sad when they didn’t win! But, thanks so much for another chance! I really like the ribbons and that particular collection from LYB!

  61. Melinda Wilson

    I mailed one out just a week ago to a dear friend that just got married.

  62. Carol B

    I wrote a handwritten letter last week. My friend and I exchange card ideas by mail and we always include a letter too!

    Carol B

  63. Wendy Crowe

    I so love these Spring colors! What a great combo with LYB!
    The last time I sent a hand written letter was to an old high school friend who lives out of state. I heard through other friends that she wasn’t doing too well health-wise and needed a “pick me up”. Her not having access to a computer made me finally sit down and pick up a pen. It was a great feeling and it was less than 10 days before I got a response! What a great mail day that was!

  64. Beth W

    You guys are just too kind-thank you for another chance at some happy goodies!

  65. Linh C

    I’ve enjoyed all the projects this week. Thanks!

  66. Lillian Child

    The last time I sent a handwritten letter was last year during the xmas holidays.
