I'm not a person who makes New Year's resolutions. They always seem to never work out and are most likely forgotten halfway though February. However, there are a few concrete goals I set for 2016 that seem a little more easy to wrap my head around than real generalized resolutions like "write more letters." The one I am most excited about is my goal to send 100 plus pieces of mail this year.
I have a ton of fun digging out my old stationary and letter writing accoutrement. I've also had fun picking up a few new items - like these fun gel pens (Gelly Roll), and the case made by Kaylah of The Dainty Squid.
I have already sent out seventeen letters (including some overseas to Indonesia, England, and Russia!), so it seems like this goal may be achieved in much less than twelve months! I sent cards to some old friends, family, and a couple pen pals I've had for over a decade. I posted some photos of my first outgoing batch of mail with the hashtag #penpalswanted to see if any like-minded people were out there who wanted to team up and join the snail mail revolution. I've already met some lovely ladies, and I've had some fun putting together letters for them. If anyone else is interested in exchanging snail mail, here is my PO Box address:
