I am still definitely behind, but if I put them in the postbox on Monday it will still count, right? :D


I'll come up with something eventually.

Here is my InCo set-up for this year:

24749092084_91fa25ef7b_z.jpg


It's a travel case that I often use for sock-knitting (I own more than one of these handy little things). Lots of room, lots of pockets. Stationery is in front; stamps in a pocket, and Washi tape inside. The unanswered letters were separated from the answered ones by a small Black 'n' Red notebook. I could even have slid in a pen or two.

In previous years, everything was in one folder, but I like this so much I may keep it as a way to sort and track correspondence!

Wow! Impressive! I wasn't trying to do enough to capture each of this; didn't even think about it. I did manage 33 individual items mailed, though. 

 

I feel GOOODDDDDD!!!!!!

Congratulations! I sent out 22 letters this month, but I had a great time and want to continue penpalling other people. I cannot be brief even when cold-writing to strangers, so I had to set aside a good amount of time for letter-writing. I will do this next year, I think.


I'll come up with something eventually.
