My rants and raves about the World

Pen Pals

I’ve never had an actual “pen pal” in my lifetime, though I’ve written snail mail to many of my relatives and past friends. I thought it would be oodles of fun, and a welcome distraction from the every day dullness that surrounds my life if I were to get one for the first time.

So, I went onto Ravelry, the go to Fiber Arts community site, to seek one out. I wanted a pen pal who shared my love of knitting, so that’s why I started there. I found a user group that was all about pen pals and joined with eager anticipation. I just posted, so no one has replied as of yet, but I’ll keep you abreast of any new happenings.

I can’t wait to handwrite a letter! It’s been at least months since I last handwrote someone and sent it off via the US Mail. I’m already looking up stationary types and sets to use! This is all so exciting!!!! Yes, I’m feeling excitement about something for the first time since, well, since my last post about Crayola Crayons.

Oh, and speaking of Ravelry, I really should update my “Notebook”. I bought so much yarn and a whole set of circular needles since then. I just need to sit myself down and do it. It’s not really the most enjoyable thing, cataloging what supplies you have, but its worth it to be so very organized.

Anyways, time for me to get a move on.

How exciting! I love letter writing. I have a passion for paper and stationery. Preparing then to write a letter is as much an adventure as the correspondence is itself. And of course nothing is quite as exciting as checking your mail for the reply.

Have fun!
