Something I've wanted for a while was a Pen Pal, someone to write to and an excuse to make cute little paper crafts/designs. Luckily, through this beautiful blogging world, I came across Joy. She had a blog that showcased her work and was more of a craft girl than I could ever dream of. (She even has a cute little shop.) We had conversed through social media and I found out she wanted a Pen Pal too. Since I was moving overseas from Florida, USA to Perth, Australia I thought it would be a great time for an international Pen Pal, I still count it as international even though I'm from USA as well.
I sent my first letter over with just paper, pen, and an envelope. I love to doodling and change my handwriting while I write my letters. Gives my own personal touch. It amazes me how much I had to write, even though we barely knew each other nor met in real life. We have also sent postcards from our travels.
Joy certainly has inspired me to step up my game! Her letter came and I was in awe the little touches that let's you know it's from her.
I love the inspiration that can easily come from something so simple. It's a shame there are talks of raising postage prices and slower delivery here in Australia. Makes you realize how much has changed over the decades, especially within the digital age, and how much you appreciate something as small as a letter.
