Back into snail mail

As some of you know, I’ve loved writing letters ever since I was a kid (got my first penpals when I was 10 years old). I still love it now as an adult. However, for the past almost fifteen years, I didn’t write much at all. Until the last couple of years. Although writing “much” these years is to exaggerate. It’s been more of wanting to write than to actually write. This week I’ve slowly started to catch up with writing those long overdue letters.

This letter going out a couple of days ago, isn’t a regular letter though. It’s a pocket letter. A pocket letter is a letter sent in a pocket trading card protector (with nine slots). You fill the pockets with small cards, more or less decorated depending on how crafty your are. You can add some small crafty goodies, or tea bag or whatever in some of the pockets, and in one pocket you include a letter you’ve written. This concept was created by Janette Lane.

I’ll show you photos of my first outgoing pocket letter once I know it’s reached its recipient. Until then, here’s the envelope. I think I went a little bit over the top when decorating it. 😉 It’s sent via a Swedish pocket letter group on Facebook.

Filofax week 8

Yep, we’re slowly catching up here, week by week. And yes, you’re right, there was no week 7. Every now and then I’m just too busy to decorate the pages.

Filofax week 6

Yes, I know it’s week 10 already. I just haven’t blogged any of the past filofax weeks. So let’s catch up now! 😀

I started the pages with picking some paper scraps to use for background. One of those papers had leaves on it, so I cut out some leaves to write the days/dates on. The journaling spots for each day are various unknown paper scraps plus a couple of printed ones (also from unknow source). The tiny icons (phone, shopping cart, washing mashine, “jobba”) are images I’ve found on the web and printed.
