Keeping in touch just got a whole let prettier
Of course like many things I love, once I start I keep on making them. However, I have done just three swaps. It is a fun way to meet new people and you can decide with the swap partner whether you want to continue on swapping or if it was a once off event.
I have included photos of two of my pocket letters, and you will notice that there is a front and a back to them. In the back you can include little odds and ends as you desire. This is not necessary, but adds to charm and pleasure for the recipient. Oh and importantly is the 'letter', which is slipped into one of the pockets. Most pocket letter makers include a tea bag so their partner can enjoy a cuppa.
Additionally, I have been ordering craft product to make these pocket letters and to add to my immense collection of beautiful papers. Addiction?
The photo below shows another habit of mine-adult colouring books. I came across these about 2 years ago and now there is a mass influx of these type of books everywhere. The selling point is the 'mental health' benefits as it helps people to de-stress, calm down, be more mindful, live in the moment. I feel that these would have been helpful in my days working as a counsellor. "Here, take this book, it will help you heaps". I will say it has been quite calming for me at times.
So that is a little crafty update from me.
