Snail Mail + Pen Pals

Friday, November 15, 2013
My name is Cara and I am a hardcore letter writer and paper addict.

If you were to ask me how many pen pals I've had and currently have over the course of my lifetime thus far, I would not be able to tell you. I got my first pen pal when I was in 5th grade and her name was Leah, from the UK. We are now friends on Facebook and still catch up every once in a while. I have also had a pen pal from Australia and Canada, and now have a bunch all around America! So I'm hoping to add to my collection of pen pals!

Would you like to be pen pals?
If so, please fill out this form and then submit it to me.
I just found some more adorable kawaii stationery (from here) to add to my collection
and am eager to show it off! Also, if we're going to be pen pals, please
make your letters/mail pretty - as I will definitely be doing the same for you.
Here are some examples: (Click the image to be taken to its respective pin.)

  3. I'm a notebook addict!! I was just in a paper store today and wanted to buy EVERYTHING haha.

  4. I used to make my own envelopes in the first years of my penpal days, but they stopped accepting them at a nearby post office. They actually collected a whole bunch of letters that I shipped out and they sent them all back to me because they were not in the right type of envelopes! I no longer mail letters through that post office. I was furious that they would hold my mail like that. Anyway, you know I love stationary. I will write you back soon! I got your letter maybe a week ago now! yey!

  5. Oh my gosh! How fun!
    Letter writing really is a lost art. Love that you love it so!
