Ziggy Shortcrust is an elf whisperer, skinnydog wrangler and campervan tootler. What’s not to love about that I ask you? Ziggy has been lamenting the demise of the handwritten letter and has set herself the challenge of writing an illustrated letter a day. An invitation was extended to help her with the challenge to send letters whizzing around the world in 2013. I thought how nice it would be to receive a handwritten letter from Ziggy instead of the usual gas bill that seems to inhabit my letterbox.
I submitted my request to be a letter recipient and was most excited to see Winter Owls’ envelope on Ziggy’s blog! I kept checking my letterbox and finally it arrived with a beautiful hand drawn owl on the envelope and a lovely illustrated elf letter inside. Thank you Ziggy, it was well worth waiting for! Ziggy told me about her owl collection which includes a sad and tatty salt pot owl with only one eye. I was also envious to read about a day spent cuddling a tiny Scops owl, I would love to cuddle an owl.
I believe Ziggy is looking for a few more participants to help her complete her letter writing quest, so if you too would like to receive an elf letter visit ziggyshortcrust.wordpress.com.
I’m trying to think of how to reply to Ziggy’s letter. Postcard from an Owl? Words of wisdom from W.Owls? Perhaps little gems of experience I have gleaned from life such as “Refrain from laughing with a mouth full of custard”. Evidenced by my younger brother who years ago sprayed his cousins and I with custard, through his nose…………
