Beautiful Pockets of Art and New Friends

Over the past year I discovered a fun and wonderful way to meet new people while exchanging fabulous little pieces of art.

They are called Pocket Letters and there are several communities that support the exchange of these fun and unique creations.  The one I discovered was Pocket Letter Pals.  You can find several communities on Facebook and other social media sites as well.

Here are a few of the letters I received.

Steampunk - From Ivy - Germany

Tim Holtz - From Sherri - Georgia

Where I Live - From Trina - Australia

It's basically crafty pen pals from all over the world.  I have received many gorgeous pocket letters and have gotten to know some very special and talented individuals through these swaps.  

Here are a few that I sent.
Steampunk - Sent to Ivy - Germany

Tim Holtz - Sent to Sherri- Georgia

Vintage/Favorite Quotes - Sent to Susan - Michigan

Vintage - Sent to Kelly - Canada

So far I have participated in 25 swaps.  Each piece is so unique and great inspiration for future crafting.  It's fun to see each person's individual style, as well as the unique craft products available in other parts of the world.
