A hobby of mine is creating silly greeting cards. It’s a sporadic hobby and one that I can break even on through my Etsy shop. I hadn’t made a card since November because I had let most of my item listings expire, but some lovely soul made an order over the weekend for a Valentine’s Day card, so I was back in business for a little bit and guess what, this is a run-on sentence.
Anyway, I thought I’d share an additional card I made (not the Etsy order) for a pen pal of mine.
I found said pen pal via the Letter Writers Alliance. It’s a pretty cool organization that encourages the re-embracement of snail mail. They both sell and freely offer cool stationery, designs, and other creative letter-writing related materials. It requires a membership, but is only a one time $5 fee for access ’til the end of time.
They send you a cool letter with your username and password along with a patch with their emblem on it. I’d pay $5 just for this little welcome envelope alone.
So if you’re into penpal-ing, letter writing, or you want to get into penpal-ing and letter writing, I suggest you sign up for to become a part of the Letter Writers Alliance. Who knows? Maybe we can become penpals.
