Well Hello - I have been a little bit slack updating as of late.. An Influx of Orders from my etsy store, Job Searching & Working are all to blame! But here I am & With alot of Mail-y goodness for you!
Before I begin Alot of my lovely penpals have been asking where I find my Penpals.. It has taken me alot of frustration, searching (&a few years) but I have found that these are my Favourite Websites to FIND a Penpal - (I will be doing a post later in the week about my Favourite Letter/Mail Blogs)
- Pen Pal of The week!- Beautiful Site with TONS of Penpal Ads & Interviews.. Very Easy to use & Pretty Looking! My Pen Pal Ad :)
- Send Something - It is quite plain & Doesn't look to Spectacular.. but the concept really is! I have met so many wonderful penpals on here! Give it a go! My Profile // Sisters Profile (Please send her Surprise Letters!)
- Good Mail Day - The "Good Mail Day" 2012 Call for Correspondents is a great place to find Penpal Ads from all over the world + Put your own up!
So those are the Three sites I am using at the moment - If you have anymore Please let me know!
This very Spectacular & Special Parcel Arrived from my Wonderful Penpal Paul! (wait till you see the letter!) - Handpainted & Very pretty - I now have to come up with a very creative way to send my package back! Any Ideas?

I Had a Bit of Spare time yesterday So I decided to get back to Basics & get stuck into Some Mail Art! I created these Envelopes with Watercolours then dug out my Ephemera Box & Went to work!
I Also put these Fantastical envelopes in plastic sheaths to mail As I did not want the watercolour to get wet & Run!
