Hey y’all! I am thrilled to be back here on the blog after a week-long hiatus, and I am even more ecstatic to co-hosting this month’s Lovely Letters Snail Mail Exchange with the awesome Esther.
| Check out her beautiful blog here. |
So what is Lovely Letters you ask? It is a pen pal program for bloggers, where Esther pairs you up with a new partner every month and you swap snail mail. Each month Esther chooses a creative theme for the exchange. Last month’s theme was “Summer Reading” and this month’s theme was “Ocean Blue”.
When I found out July’s theme I was excited and couldn’t wait to start putting together my package for my partner – Emily, from Emily Finta.
This month I went to the Outer Banks, NC and spent a week lounging by the beach. | Stay tuned for a post… | What better place to pick up my “ocean blue” items for my swap partner?! So I took advantage of my love of shopping while on vacation and the abundance of ocean blue items in every shop I visited. Here is a peek at my Lovely Letters exchange package for Emily:
If you are a blogger and love snail mail, I highly suggest you take part in this fun snail mail exchange. It is fun and a fantastic way to make blogging buddies.
