a book of notes for Lori

In a recent post I wrote about my love for snail mail, my blogging friend Lori, from a bright and beautiful life, left a lovely comment saying she loves pretty mail too.  I asked her if she wouldn’t mind if i sent her some lovely mail as I love sending letters almost as much as I love receiving them. We exchanged addresses, and I got to work preparing a special package for her.

I took my inspiration from a book of notes I had seen over at oh hello friend a while back, and thought that my little book for Lori turned  out quite well. I know I would truly love to receive something like this little package, and hoped that Lori would enjoy it too. She did love it! Thanks for letting me send you some pretty mail Lori- I had heaps of fun making it!

Here’s a peak of how the book of notes looked when finished.







Enclosed the special package were lots of inspirational quotes, small origami, handmade envelopes, random bits of information and lots of lovely odds and ends to make it look super pretty. Be sure to head over to Lori’s blog if you want to see more detail, as she has taken lots of lovely pictures ( I had my camera on the wrong setting and only noticed when I had finished up, so excuse the blurriness of my photos).

I was wondering if anyone else was interested in doing a snail mail swap? Let me know what you think, or if you are interested.

    I would love to!! But, I don’t think mine would be nearly as lovely! If you’re up for some potentially not-as-gorgeous-as-yours mail, I’m game. =)

      Excellent Jayme! I would love to swap mail with you. I’m rolling about some ideas for a mail swap in my head. I’ll be in touch really soon.
