WOW! I think I may have found the website I've been searching for! I love sending mail, even more than receiving it (which I also love love a lot). I grew up in the era of snail mail, before the internet was born, and my family and friends always mailed letters, small tokens, and huge holiday boxes, filled with presents. There is nothing more satisfying then a package wrapped with care, all tied and taped and addressed, ready for it's journey lol. Some people don't understand- "why waste your money on the stamps?" It's a hobby. It brings me joy. I'm sure whoever is reading this understands, at least!
I have a few current Pen Pals, but many small treasures and ones in the making, to brighten someones day. I simply want to send you things! And, of course, receive some Happy Mail too. So, a little about me:
I'm an organizing fool, way too obsessed with my Filofax, love love writing letters, making stickers and all things stationery. I also have been working on some dollhouses, sort of remodeling the standard version into a more modern/minimal style. It's a lot of fun! I could spend hours in Hobby Lobby or Ikea. Target too. I believe everyone needs at least three different size of post-it notes and at least 100 colored pens lol.
I love all paper crafts, especially scrapbooking, journaing, using a decorated planner, and making cards and envelopes and cute little letters. I grew up with lots of snail mail friends, and would like to rekindle that joy of sending and receiving. I also love to sew, and might send you a quilt square- just use it as a coaster is you don't sew as well!
Besides all that craftiness, I am a Mom of two awesome teenagers, a medical assistant and owner of lots of spoiled furry friends. I read a lot of fantasy and fiction. Don't really watch TV or movies, but am current with Game of Thrones:) I love most music, even classical! Love Mahler; symphony 5 is one of the most amazing works of art of all time!
I love art museums, actually any museums. Love to walk outside, with my dog, my kids, or just me. Walking, thinking, watching the clouds. My life is just returning to normal after a bit of a crazy spell, and small, simple pleasures are what I am most grateful for at the moment. A good book, a mug of tea, hot bath, friendly note in the mail:) All the small things we take for granted that ground us, make us feel peace and make life worth living.
Hope everyone is happy and well. :) Emily
