snail mail | papered thoughts pen pal

i have accumulated a wonderful new penpal named rin! she was a part of the send something good project but i discovered her wonderful blog even before that - you can find her blogging about snail mail at papered thoughts. she's probably the best mail artist i've ever encountered and her aesthetic really jives with mine - it's full without being messy. "creative chaos" but with a sense of neatness which i absolutely love.

i wanted to honour rin's talent by putting a lot of love into the mail i sent her in return. below is a collage of the piece i made her, as well as the envelope innards. after which (saving the best for last) you'll get a glimpse of the amazing piece of artwork rin sent to me. i can honestly say it is one of the best pieces of mail i have ever received!




  1. How awesome would it be to be your penpal! :)

  2. I can't even imagine how I would feel if I received a package like that! Probably so so loved!

  3. Hello Sweet girl! I got your letter today & am penning a reply as we speak :) Such a pretty letter! made my day! xo


thanks for your comment, i love hearing your thoughts!
