Angela and I corresponded through emails and learned that we share a common interest in upcycled papercraft projects. Her blog and Facebook page share many creative ideas and helpful hints and tutorials on an eclectic variety of DIY topics. I was excited to open the package she sent to me, a decorative box (which will be put to good use as I am always in need of attractive storage options for my plethora of art supplies!) generously filled with an assortment of goodies, including some handmade by Angela. I’m quite fond of inspirational quotes, dragonflies, candles and sweet fabric handbags, so the package she thoughtfully put together for this swap has been much appreciated.
These opportunities for modern day penpals are a delightful way to interact with our creative community here in the online realm and connect with new friends in the process.
