Naomi Bulger describes herself as a writer, an illustrator, and a mother, on a path to live her life with more simplicity, greater creativity, and deliberate kindness. Through her bespoke courses and workshops, she aims to give women the confidence, inspiration, and practical tools they need to share their creative work and stories.
One such online course is aimed at reviving the art of letter writing. Bulger guides through multiple methods of making beautiful mail-art and handmade stationery, teaching the art of writing and storytelling in a letter and helping you forge personal connections and find pen-pals.
“It’s time,” reads her website. “Time to pick up a pen and write a letter to Nanna. Surprise Facebook friends with a handwritten postcard. Send a thank-you card to your child’s school teacher. Leave a loving post-it note for your partner. No matter what your reason for writing, I will help you make it special and beautiful.”
“Life today is busier than it has ever been!” she acknowledges. “But I think that is all the more reason why it is so special to slow down enough to write something meaningful, and personal, and show the person you’re writing to how much you care.” According to Bulger, we all have the creative potential within us, which she hopes to push forward.
But even if you don’t follow her guidelines, her Instagram page alone will provide you with all the inspiration you need to write that letter.
