Sadly, your mailbox contains more L.L.Bean catalogs than love notes.
Liven things up with Parchment Post. After falling for one too many small stationers on her hunt for wedding invites, Evanston native Jamie Ambabo launched the quarterly delivery service to celebrate the old-fashioned mode of communication.
Every three months you’ll receive a beautifully wrapped parcel with six seasonally relevant cards (beach fun for summer, knit patterns in winter). The meticulously curated packages include local favorites (Paper Parasol Press, A. Favorite, Laura George) and new friends from far-off lands (Toronto, Texas).
Starting Monday, order the winter 2012 collection. And talk about a paper trail: Ambabo favors blank or multipurpose cards (meaning no awkward leftovers).
So you can never write her off.
Available online at parchmentpost.com, $55-$100. Use code POSTLOVESCANDY for 15 percent off any subscription package through December 31.
