☆*:.｡.Hello, hello friends.｡.:* ☆ My name is Leslie and I’m so happy that you’re here! I started posting on Instagram as a way to connect with other pen pal/snail mail lovers across the world. I found my way into the pen pal community in August 2019, and have been in love with it ever since!
Through pen palling, I’ve found joy in a creative outlet that seems to be limitless. My love for stationery stems all the way back to my childhood, when my mom would let my sister and me pick special stickers from her personal collection when we were behaving ~extra well~. She would also take us to stationery shops where we’d browse for hours, carefully selecting a new addition for our own collections. She shared with us her love of stationery and snail mail, which has stuck with me well into adulthood.
I started a small Etsy shop in March 2020 when I noticed that there wasn’t any cute letter paper in a style that I liked. I decided, “Why not design something I’d like to use?” I create stationery that I personally love to use when sending letters. If you’re keen to take a look, you can head over to my Etsy shop. This blog is also a way for me to share my hobby with other pen-pallers, and hopefully offer up some tips and tricks for those new to the community. I truly hope you come across something here or in the shop that inspires you or simply brings you joy!
