About Me

I first discovered Pocket Letters in 2016 on Janette Lane's website www.pocketletter.com. I loved the idea of penpals via craft and have become active on her website since. Also into sustainability, so love recycling. Have made PLs using Travel Brochures, Postcards, Cereal Box, etc. In 2017 made 5 Christmas themed PLs using previous years Christmas cards, cutting out the cutest pics from the cards and incorporating them into the PL. Worked a treat! Love experimenting with Mixed Media, using the Gel Press, watercolours, stamping. Making lots of cards for birthdays and special occasions.

We have a gorgeous Rhodesian Ridgeback, she is 10yrs old. She is our baby. A gentle soul. Always hungry for food. Sleeps alot, but when its time for a walk, she wakes up instantly and is all excited.

Comment: Thanks for this beautiful folder! I love the shimmer, you added and the colors are lovely! Since we are in the far North, it is bitter cold here, with temps on the low teens F. We have a couple feet of snow on the ground. Sounds like your Christmas dinner was yummy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

Comment: Wow, what unique MailArt! How did you cut such precise hexagons? A very cool idea for a hexagon folder/ATC holder. I like the colors (purples & blues) and the Kimberley Coast sounds quite fascinating.
Response: Thank you AmyMarie. I used https://incompetech.com/graphpaper/hexagonal/ to create the hexagon shape. Use 5cm size hexagon shape to get the shape. Hope that helps.
