The Letter Writers Alliance, Stamp Fingernails and Carrier Pigeons Without The Poop

A tip of the tongs to Facebook friend and the American Philatelic Society's Stamp Talk host Nancy Clark, for bringing to the Round-Up's attention The Letter Writers Alliance (LWA).

The LWA was established in 2007 by Kathy Zadrozny and Donovan Beeson to encourage people to write more letters.

According to their website, "In this era of instantaneous communication, a handwritten letter is a rare and wondrous item. The Letter Writers Alliance is dedicated to preserving this art form; neither long lines, nor late deliveries, nor increasing postal rates will keep us from our mission."

It goes on to say, "As a member of the Letter Writers Alliance, you will carry on the glorious cultural tradition of letter writing. You will take advantage of every opportunity to send tangible correspondence. Prepare your pen and paper, moisten your tongue, and get ready to write more letters!"

A recent post on their blog talks about decorating your finger nails with stamps.

It reads, "From Reuben Miller, via The Improvised Life, here is a new way to artify your finger nails using stamps! I suppose you could technically use any image, cut it to size and then cover it with clear nail polish, but this is STAMPS people! STAMPS!"

Also. check out their Pigeon Post Kit where you can have your own carrier pigeon "without all the messy poop clean-up. As seen above, mail the bird as is, no box needed!
