snail mail monday: wavy blue 2020

January 27, 2020

Happy New Year and Happy Lunar New Year! (this post is so overdue!)

Getting adjusted into 2020 was much needed on my end.  There has been a lot of hustling and changes for me, and I am a firm believer in consistency ;).  This past weekend I spent mostly with close friends, family and mikes fam.  I went to 3 different CNY parties, and even checked out the Lunar New Year Decor over at DCA yesterday.  Now that everything is at a good pace for 2020 it's time to get to posting here!

I love putting together and writing snail mail (which you should know by now).  Working on snail mail is like putting together a little gift for your pen pal.  Here is one that I put together and sent off last year.  The way snail mail is done now a days incorporates so much more than just a written letter, see what I put together below-

{crafted a card, and used stationery on hand}

{included a 2019 calendar that had photos for postcards}

{vintage paperie from a flea market in paris}

The patterned blue and orange stationery was a purchase I made from Anthropologie years ago, it's just blank cards with a matching envelope.  Once I knew what my stationery was everything else just flowed together.  As always, this is everything that I already had on hand so no extra spending with the exception of paying a little more in postage since my pen pal is in Canada :) . I also crafted up a simple navy polka dotted greeting card and hand written a thank you note in there. I did add some gifts in there that i'll be sharing for Wednesday Wrapping!

Hope you all are having a great 2020 so far XOXO
