L&J's Newsletter named LetterNews

Letters & Journals ran a contest a few weeks ago to get some suggestions on what to name the weekly newsletter. We had a lot of wonderful and creative submissions and after a few weeks of gradually narrowing down the list, we decided to go with LetterNews.

LetterNews works on many levels. First of all, it's a play on newsletter, so that is highly appropriate. Secondly, the word letter is what makes up all of the words contained in your letters and journals. And finally, letters as in correspondence in the mail.

The lucky contributor is Ilona who most of you know as The Missive Maven. I emailed her the good news and she was just thrilled. For those of you who are curious, she chose the JetPens gift certificate. I'm sure she will share with all of you the updates and reviews of what she ends up buying with her new-found fortune.

The newsletter will start publishing at the end of this month. You can sign up at the L&J website if you want to get on this e-newsletter mailing list.

Yay!! I already signed up for my LetterNews Newsletter.

...and I am plotting JetPens purchases... my latest fun pen favorites from there are the Copic atyouSpica Micro Glass Glitter Pens. I know I will get a few more of those!

Ooooo ... let me enable you a bit dear Missive Maven! I am finding the Pilot Latte Gel Ink pens to be quite excellent for those writing experiences that require sticky, thick ink, like high gloss. And this ink dries very fast! I never thought I'd want such a pen, but now that I've tried one, I want a million. Think of all the wonderful captioning you could add to the glossy front of boring postcards ....

And congratulations!

Thanks for the enabling suggestion, PostMuse... in fact my JetPens order is already en route, but I shall ruminate on those Pilot Latte Gel Ink pens for future purchases.
