I have been enjoying my writing this week very much. I truly appreciate all the awesome pen friends I have.
More Snailmail love headed out today.
What have you sent out recently? Share some comment love 🙂
As I was looking through my box of past letters I notice something. A few good pals have not replied back to my last letter, some as far back as 6 months.
Their lives may have gotten busy or life happened and they have not gotten back to responding. I tend to hold on to these letters for quite a while and I am not sure why. I think I hope that once life settles down they will again pick up pen and paper and write about what has being going on in their life. I don’t mind waiting for a reply if I have a feeling if in the slightest that it is coming. Maybe a quick email or post card saying
Hey a letter will be on it’s way as soon as I get things in order or something.
but no all I hear is silence. Well I will never know or have an answer to this question but.. Why do good pen friends go missing?
The World May Never Know
This is a sample of this weeks mail that came in and went out for pen friends.
Some mail art fun
This is one that went out, isn’t it pretty. I think I did a good job on it
I went a little crazy with the markers haha
I just love these froggies, so cute
This is one that I received, such a pretty handmade envelope from Kristy Oliver.
Some more handmade envelopes were inside for me to use, yay I love these
I just adore cupcakes and these are my newest cupcake theme stationery
And because I was out of address labels I created this pretty labels for Spring
My new log book, because my other one was old and bulky. Now New colorful, and Streamlined Book
My desk as it looks at the end of this week, it doesn’t always look this organized. When I am in the middle of writing it is a huge mess. This is a toned down version of my desk.
Well that is all for this week of Mail Call, see you again next week. If you have a blog and post your photos please share a link as I would love to take a peek.
Today after did our Easter Egg Hunt and baked with the kids I got to relaxing a bit. I took out my box where I store my pen friend letters and started looking through it. I was amazed at how many letters have not been replied to me in over a years time. I honestly don’t know why I saved them for this long. I guess I thought well maybe, just maybe the person would write back the optimist in me. (ha ha)
Well I took the time today to sort through them and dispose in the round file all those letters that were taking up precious room in my letter box. Now as I see it I have ample room for the pen friends I have that write regularly and want to continue a pen friend relationship.
Now I have to make sure I prune my letter box with more frequency as a way to go with the minimalist state of mind our family is in for this season of our life.
Well our a/c stopped cooling somewhere in the middle of the night. This morning it was 77 degrees F in our home. By 3pm it was well on it’s way to 92 degrees F. Well to pass the time I wrote letters.
I also drank tons of ice water and icees etc. Thank goodness the repair guy show up at 5pm or so and the house is now in the 70’s again.
I have gratitude for cool water, and ice also for a nice cold shower oh my those felt good today.
