Isn't that a funny quote? Especially appropriate in our age of e-mails and text messages! I think of this quote while I'm creating imagery too.
Whenever I send a hand-written note, I choose simply-designed notecards and stationery that provide a cheerful or inspirational backdrop to my message, something that best fits the mood.
Colorful stickers are a versatile way to personalize correspondence. I still love to look through cards and letters from my mother and my aunt -- decorated front-and-back with stickers of flowers, animals and birds -- little icons that they lovingly chose just for me!
