Mail Call Catch-Up

Mail Call | akaTerri
I joined a pen pal group on Facebook and am having a blast getting to meet so many interesting people from around the world! Mail is starting to come in and I wanted a place to start sharing some of my lovely snail mail.

Lucienne and Tracy
Received a nice letter from Lucienne with some little sticky notes and washi and a lovely note from Tracy! Reminds me a little of a Thomas Kincaid painting.

My friend Onikah sent me some gorgeous stationery! We arranged a swap, but she surprised me by adding in the tennis shoes and cupcake paper. Love LaPapierre!

Lots of postcards today!

Angelica is the first person to actually send something along with her card! She hid a handmade bookmark under a piece of washi tape and it actually made it to me in one piece! You can see it on the top right of her postcard. Love it!

The 100 Day Project on Instagram

One of my pen pals mentioned that she was taking part in the 100 Day Project on Instagram and would be writing letters. I thought that sounded like a wonderful idea, so decided to join in all the fun! 

We're both using #100daysofsnailmail as our tags.

Today is the official start date, but I'm sure you could jump in at any time!

I'd knew I'd be able to use these again one day!
I found some old airmail envelopes that I used for my English pen pal back in the 6th grade. So I can't throw anything away....sue me!

preparations are under way!
So how do I prepare for a marathon 100 day letter writing project? I gather some cute stationery and decorate some envelopes with washi tape! Priorities!
