Yes! I have caught the Pocket Letter Pal bug and YES, I caught it bad!
For those of you who haven't heard about it yet, it was created by Janette Lane as a cheaper alternative to project life but little did she realise it would become something different. A way to both artistically express yourself AND gain art pals via "snail mail" aka "happy mail".
Someone posted this image in the Pocket Letter Pals Facebook Group a few days ago and it pretty much describes how much fun it is to get something in the mail that is addressed to you that is NOT a bill.
So far I have created 3 pocket letters:
#1- Amelia's Pocket Letter
This was my first so to tell you the truth I didn't know where I was going with this one. My PL was getting married and so all I could think of was love and happy home.
#2- Sharon's Pocket Letter
Sharon and I decided to do fairytale themes. I chose Alice in Wonderland for her and she chose Winnie the Pooh for me. I can't wait to get my Pooh bear pocket letter.
#3- Donna's Pocket Letter
This one was animal themed because my PLP is a wildlife ranger and has many cats and dogs at home, so I thought this G45 Raining Cats & Dogs collection was perfect for her.
I also wanted to show you the back of the PL. Usually I insert something in each pocket- die-cuts, stickers, embellishments etc.
And this is how I usually package them. They fold in thirds and post in a regular envelope.
So far, I have only received one:
I really love the color scheme. I recognise some of it as KaiserCraft Shine & Bright collection. I love the paper piecing she did and the tiny little sticker letters. And I love how she incorporated our wedding anniversary. Thats special !!!
I can honestly say that I am enjoying this new spin on pen palling. Pass by the Facebook page and have a look at some of the amazing things the girls are posting. You will be inspired Im sure!!
Thanks for stopping by.
