Also, as a stationery lover, I'd love to swap packages. I have a lot of paper ephemera and creative supplies and I also love to make stationery myself. Wouldn't it be great if we could swap packages filled with little surprises and a letter? And just as a sole project, you send me something, and I send you something back. That's it!
It doesn't have to be expensive or a massive package, I'll give you some inspiration:

As you can see, packages can contain lots of things. Tea, handmade things (handmade things are the best), stationery, maps, photos, quotes, postcards.. It's also nice to include something from where you live. I love traveling and everytime I get mail from a far away country filled with things typical for that place, it feels like I traveled a bit.
I won't stop writing with the few I'm writing at the moment, but I also won't take new letter writing pen pals. Just packages swaps (which may include a letter, not neccessary) and just sole projects (unless we find out we're soulmates ;-)).
Because I'm still busy and I want to try out this new project first, I start with inviting some people to join me in this project. If it all works out well, I'll open the contactform again. If you want to send in a pen pal call, you can contact me here.
