Hi there all,
We are getting ready to have a few scorching hot days here in The Netherlands. I hope to get through them well enough with two small kids at home.
I discovered snailmailing last November through Instagram. Snailmail is the word of choice now to describe what used to be, having a pen pall. The art of writing letters and sending them out. The snail of course standing for the slower pace of paper correspondence over that of email.
The fun bit about snailmail apart from connecting to another person through letter writing is the creativity that you can put into your packages. Next to your letters it's fun (not mandatory) to add little trinkets such as handmade gifts, vintage goodies or stationary supplies the receiver can use on their next snailmail project. Even the envelope used to send out your letter can be handmade.
Here are some Instagram pictures of snailmail I received.
This is one I send out.
I love maps so I had to make some envelopes out of old maps.
All this snailmailing leaves me some how unable to send out a plain white envelope. But it's all good it allows me to play with my washi tape and masking tape collection.
Well I will be logging off now to work on some snailmail goodies. I will be sharing the results much later just in case my pen palls happen to read my blog I don't want to ruin the surprise.
