Spread Love Mail Swap: I’ve Got A PenPal!

A few months ago, two of my favorite local creative chicks (Rachel Tenny of A Little Bit Of Me and Paulene of Leen Machine Calligraphy & Design) announced a penpal exchange they would be hosting. I immediately jumped on that train! I have been longing for a penpal (you already know I love to send Happy Mail, but I love to receive it too! 😉 )

I’m so excited to be a part of the #SpreadLoveMailSwap! I’m really looking forward to being a part of this ongoing swap that will put me on the receiving end of a few letters 🙂

I sent off the first letter to my penpal last week:

Envelope calligraphy by yours truly, but I can’t take credit for the card: it’s a print from Leen Machine Calligraphy & Design – Paulene gifted it to us for taking her calligraphy class.

In return, she sent me a little note about her (she sounds super sweet!) and this beautiful watercolor card which I promptly hung on the wall of my office…directly across from me as a reminder 🙂


I’m so excited to finally have a penpal and I can’t wait to learn more about my new friend through our exchange. I have lots of creative ideas for sprucing up the snail mail I send to her so I’ll keep you updated with my creations.

And as always, I’ll also keep you updated with my #reslicedHappyMail creations. There are some really great nominations whose stories I can’t wait to share with you. Stay tuned!

My name is Jordan. I'm a full-time working mom whose coffee cup is always half full (and probably still in the microwave). I've got a weak spot for rescuing old dogs, pretending pizza is a vegetable, negotiating dessert with every meal, propagating more plants than any home needs, dreaming of sewing projects while my husband is talking to me, and loving my tribe too deep.
