Pocket Letter Mail...
My goodness April came and went very quickly. I signed up for National Letter Writing Month and was given a pen pal. This year I truly enjoyed my pen pal and her creative artistic fun mail she sent to me. I tried to reciprocate in kind. I made her this "pocket letter". This is the front and the photo was taken while it was in its nine pocket plastic page protector.
Here I have taken each pocket note out of the plastic for a better photo. This is the front of the page.
Here is the back of the page...out of the plastic. I added little gifts within some of the pockets. This was fun to make and I can honestly say I was focused on my pen pal through each and every square.
If you would like to make something similar merely "Google" Pocket Letters and you will get lots of ideas from private blogs, YouTube and Pinterest. I did my very own version rather than spend all my time researching.
Here is some fun mail I received during April. The month actually was a lot of fun and because I kept it to a smaller list this year I was able to completely mail to everyone.
Here is another batch of fun mail I received. Yes, that is a small wooden surf board from my pen pal. I told you it is lots of fun.
Now I think I have a defective wall calendar this year. Well actually each of my calendars seems to be defective this year. They each are rushing through the days weeks and months far faster than in years prior. I truly need track shoes to keep up however I don't own track shoes and thankfully do not run at this age. I do more of a saunter or meander...is this why I can't keep up?
May is already showing me I am behind. However I do have plans to be very busy and check things off my May list. After a little rest and recuperation from being gone for a few days visiting the young newlyweds. The bride let me help her select materials for a couple of wedding albums for family that wasn't able to attend. I truly enjoyed spending time being creative and reliving all the wedding fun in photos with our lovely bride. The groom and Mr. C spent quality time together doing guy stuff!
I shall be visiting your blogs and seeing what you are up to in this month of May. I also have some additional letters to write and mail that I promised. And I have some beading and hand-stitching plans which I will share later when I have something to photograph.
Creative Bliss and Joyful May Days...
