Cards, postcards, and letters, aren't they great?
I made Shanti a business card stamp and she sent me a thank you card. She sent me an embossed business card, isn't it beautiful?
And a hand written card- what calligraphy! Thanks so much, Shanti!
To respond to a recent comment made by Cindy- I mentioned how I write down what card/stationery I use so that I don't resend the same one. This is made possible by Paper & Type's letter ledger. I got my ledger in December 2011, and I have not written a letter without it since. I just updated mine a bit. I usually get long letters/consistent from four certain pen pals. For these certain four, I was finding the boxes a bit too small. So, I got out some washi tape and made tabs in my ledger.
Now these four pen pals have their own page, so when I get a letter from them, I just flip to their tab.
I am almost ready for my next ledger!
To answer another question, Mackenzie asked where I found all my pen pals. A lot have found me through my blog, and others I found through craft fairs and friends. If you're looking for a pen pal, I suggest joining the letter writers alliance.
