well, i've survived a week without kids so far, with two left to go. i like the quiet and slow pace, but it's actually a little too quiet sometimes. and then there's all that time i spend stalking the mailman in the morning and the camp website at night! so far, we've received four letters, all on the same day, two from each. in true teen fashion, the 14 yo used up a whole letter to tell me she had to write it, but already wrote one, so yeah, camp is fun. thanks for the details, pie! they've been in lots of smiling pictures online though, so that keeps me happy! i thought i'd mark the beginning of week two with a look at some of the camp stationery that's gone out the door so far this season. the ones above are a new design this year. fill in the blank letters are very popular, so i thought it would be fun to create a new one to look like a newspaper. afterall, it's news from camp we all want so much!
i always say fill in the blanks are great for young or very lazy campers who may not like to write so much. (perhaps i should have created a sarcastic version for my teen!) my original fill in design still remains the most ordered, with color and/or image personalizations. some of the more recent ones are shown above. the canoe was the first, so that gets the most requests in colors to match camp colors, but i've also replaced it with the tent a few times and even a collection of balls for a sports camp.
many people do still prefer blank stationery. personalized with campy images, of course! these are just a few recent prints. the peace, love, and sunshine one is a consistent fave, but i love the peace, love and camp version just as much. and i was so excited when someone asked for a more boyish version, with arrows and the wooden crate font - so fun! i just hope all these kids are writing home more than mine. or that mine are spreading the love to other family members and friends, at least!
where's that mailman?!
