16 Sparrows is a quirky group that has a Letter Writing Alliance membership club of sorts. I signed up and am looking forward to my membership badge being delivered snail mail. They offer mail ideas in new and interesting ways. Go visit.
For a while now I have had a few Pen Pals. Somehow I came across Pen Pal World on the internet and I have accumulated a few gals to correspond with. Some girls like snail mail. Others like email. You can peruse profiles and find a match to write to. Cool.
The tactile part of me loves note cards. I've never taken to scraping and making cards, but I do like stamping envelopes and sending off to far away places. Pen Pal World is a good fit for me. One pal I have lives in London, two others live in Australia, and then a couple live here in the US.
Naked envelopes bug me. There are infinite things to do with an envelope, an empty canvas if you will.
Putting a stamped image and doodling around on the envelope always give it that certain something. Don't you think?
Go write a note to someone. Well, maybe closer to February since you probably just spent a fortune on stamps for Christmas Cards. xo, juls
