Pen Pal Swap

I keep forgetting to post about the super fun pen pal swap hosted by Apron Thrift Girl that I did in April, which I believe was National Letter Writing Month.

The mission was to handwrite a letter on recycled material and send it in a recycled envelope.

This is what I received from Lisa at Parallel-Botany.

The letter was written on a Tyvek envelope, which Lisa says can't be recycled. She stitched "GREETINGS" across the top with cotton lace weight yarn.

It is super beautiful and very creative. It made me feel like a bit of a chump, as all I sent her was a silly story about meeting a raccoon in a dumpster on the back of a menu from the dispensary I clean once a week.

Anyway, thank you Lisa for the beautiful letter and Selena for hosting!
