Description:

For those who know me, know that I have been through a tremendous amount during my time away from Swapbot. So what better return than with a healing letter swap. Please be creative with the letter itself. Poetry, picture/drawings, pressed flowers. Anything meaningful. This is a collective act toward healing, this is a collective act of positivity. Please think carefully and create your flat mailed healing swap intentionally. Housekeeping: That was pretty touchy-feely for me, but I hope it is a bit inspiring. It can be just a letter written with intention and taking time. Or it can be a drawing made with intention and taking time, a collage whatever. It will be flat, snail mailed, in the US. It will be about healing and positivity. If you think this swap is for you then join up. Our last day to send has significance. Our last day to send:

September 23 coincides with when Autumn begins in the Northern Hemisphere. May the Autumn be a time of healing for us, a time to look inward reflect and recognize what is most precious in ourselves and in our lives. I hope that our shared messages of healing are unexpected and meaningful.

I am new to this site but have been writing letters for years and years as a penpal (you can check out my instagram @quinnsmovingstationery if you'd like to see my style) and I would LOVE to be a part of this swap. I think supporting mental and physical health of yourself and others is so important and encouragement is so wonderful to give and receive. Would I be able to join the swap even though I do not have any ratings yet?

@movingstationery I love your instagram. I do have a question, this is a regional swap (limited to inside the US) and your instagram lists you as residing in Canada. Is that accurate? The address being sent to needs to be from within the US. IF you can't meet this requirement, then lets put our heads together to find a good solution. You certainly have the talent and the heart.

I keep waffling back and forth regarding this swap, because I really LOVE the idea of it, but I am feeling insecure about being able to write or create anything that might be healing for another person....

Thunderbird I think you should jump in. Sometimes just the act of knowing we are not alone is healing. I don't want anyone to feel stress on this. A picture, a collage a letter, anything made with intention is all it takes. It is handmade and comes from a place of good. That in itself is a very healing act. I trust that you've got this :)

Remember it is ABOUT healing and positivity. That's it, simple, kind, and community driven.
