I got a bounty of wonderful gifts from pen pals all over the world- 2 notebooks, a honey stir stick, bloom tea, erasers, puffy stickers, a fantastic pen case. Aren't I lucky?
Emma wrote me a letter and included a notebook and some items from her new shop-
Letter loves. Have you checked it out? It's a must! She also blogs here.
I had plenty of thank you notes to write so I pulled out my stash. This is when I check my letter ledger to see if I've sent a certain person this design already.
I've been collecting postcards and it's time to go through the pile. I've started writing shorter letters on a group of postcards then tying them up together with string.
First round of thank you cards are written and sealed.
After I write shorter notes/cards, then I get into my long letters to respond to. While organizing my supplies the other day I came across my colored pencils. I love writing with colored pencils but I rarely have the chance to anymore.
No doubt, I'm sure you all know that Donovan is the Queen of mail art. I tried my hand at collage type mail art.
I hope these stick ons last a trip to Canada!
I'm sure I'll look back at these first attempts the same way I view my intro to photo work. But, I did have fun making them so that's all that matters.
A big thanks to all my pen pals- I cherish your letters! Expect return letters soon.
