When was the last time you incorporated your own handwriting into a project?
Do you wish you had a piece of paper with your grandmother's or grandfather's handwriting scrawled across? It's totally possible they weren't fans of their own handwriting either. Just a piece of paper with messy penmanship can be a powerful connection to the past.
Do it today. Write out a favorite quote or poem. Send it to someone. Paste it on a layout. Stuff it in an envelope and put it somewhere you keep special things. It is special.
