I've made a bit of a leap this week and joined Anna from Miss Beartrix's #postcircle after seeing this post on The Reading Residence's blog.
The reason I say 'leap' is because this is a bit of a commitment for me, I've wanted to join something like this for a while, since seeing so many posts about swaps and penpals on Instagram.  I've been reluctant to join because I was concerned about how often I'd have to write and didn't want to struggle and it feel like a chore.
I'm hoping that I'm going to find letter writing relaxing and give me a bit of screen-free 'me' time, I think it will also give me a chance to practice my handwriting.
I've always loved stationery and enjoy making cards and notelets so now I have somewhere to send them!
Because I'd like to keep costs down on this hobby, I am hoping to make a lot of my own stationery although it would be soooo easy for me to spend lots of pounds on beautiful new papery goods, Sainsbury's has a particularly pretty range at the moment and I couldn't resist treating myself to some pretty washi tape today (so much for saving eh!)

I've made these tags and note paper as a start and can't wait to use it on my first letter.  I can see a big re-organisation of my craft cupboard on the cards to find long forgotten stash that I've been hoarding.
Oooh just thinking about pretty stamps, stickers and washi tapes to prettify my correspondence makes me happy!  
I'm linking in with bring back paper for this post, thanks Jocelyn (The Reading Residence) for inviting me to link up x


  1. Brilliant! So pleased you've made the leap, and I do hope that you enjoy it as much as I do. I found I had to get into a writing habit, so that it felt enjoyable and relaxing, and yes, a perfect but of screen-free time. And I bought that very same set of washi tape yesterday, too! Happy crafting and writing, and thanks for sharing with #BringBackPaper's #PaperyPeep

    1. Thank so much Jocelyn, I'm sure I will once I get into the swing of things, am hoping I can nip off to the park at lunchtimes with my paper and write there!

  2. Thanks for the post and for joining up, Leandra! I hope you enjoy your new relaxing hobby as well as being part of the wider #PostCircle community :) x

    1. Thanks Anna, I am really looking forward to it x
