I have been having so much fun putting together mail lately. I’ve made a point to take more time to dedicate to the whole process, and not just taking the time to write a letter or make a collage. I think it’s been super helpful using paints to create my envelopes and stationery because I can get a lot done at once and it leaves me more time to find bits and pieces I think the recipient might enjoy!
Another really lovely thing about including all sorts of ephemera in the envelope is getting rid of my stash. I tried organizing my paper bits last weekend and it was such a disaster. I just have too much stuff and most of it has been in my stash for over 3 years. It’s absurd! How long can you hold on to something until you realize you need to give it away?
In other news, I’m slowly falling behind in replies! (and I keep getting more pen pals because I can’t stop) 🙂

Ooo so pretty! I got your letter, by the way – THANK YOU! You are amazing. Definitely going to post a pic when it’s finally sunny here and I get a few spare moments! And write you back! 🙂 ❤

Hooray! I’m happy the letter arrived 🙂
I love the sugarskull!! Unlike you, I need to build up a stash haha, I’ve got tons of stationery(though never enough) and stickers etc..but not fun bits and pieces like you have! Looks great!
We can trade! I have TONS of scraps but no stationery. Haha 🙂 Scraps are easy to acquire! The easiest thing to do is buy old magazines or books with lots of illustrations at thrift stores.
