Every once in awhile, I bring out my letter-making "tools" and get started on a handmade card. The process is not usually as neat as in the pictures, but today the sun was out (sun = source of energy, productivity, and good pictures) and my desk was less cluttered than usual.
My letter-making tools:
1. Paper (I often rip out a page from my sketchbook)
2. Watercolor paint & brushes
3. Colored pencils
5. Fabric tape
6. Envelopes (I bought a bunch of brown envelopes from MUJI)
7. String or ribbons (if I'm feeling fancy)
8. A good pen!
Writing letters can be a daunting task, especially since my hands are much more used to typing out emails or texts rather than writing with pen and paper. But knowing there is a cute, little envelope waiting to be stuffed with a letter is quite motivating, and so is giving someone a handmade letter of course. It would be nice to find a penpal. :3
