This month's outgoing snail mail intends to enchant recipients. I've used my favorite kraft envelopes, calligraphy, rubber stamps, and coffee stained ephemera to cast a spell. Pen pal goodies have been tucked into a glassine envelope seal with a blood red wax seal. I'm pleased with the overall look. If you are curious about the types of goodies pen pals send to one another, check out the following video I filmed last year for ideas.
Happy Wednesday. We're busy in Florida today getting ready for Hurricane Matthew. Many of us have to postpone our Fall decorating until after the winds pass us by later this week.
