For all you snail mail lovers, it’s that time again to sign up for snail mail my email. Due to the overwhelming popularity of last year, you can only submit letters for 4 days, starting tomorrow. Check it out here
In addition to knitting, I am a huge fan of mail art and letter writing. I love the entire process of sitting down with beautiful stationery, a lovely pen and sending a thoughtful note from a friend far away. I have pen pals whom I’ve never met in real life and I have friends Ive known for years who also appreciate the gift of a handwritten letter.
One of the new hobbies I’ve picked up along the way is listening to podcasts while knitting and writing letters, so it was such a delight to see that this week’s episode of This American Life was all about pen pals! Please take a listen and think about dropping a note, a postcard a teabag, anything to someone. It’s such a thrill finding a nice note amongst the bills and catalogs. And it’s even better knowing how much it will mean to the recipient!
