7 fun things to send to your penpal

why hello there!

I have recently gotten into the hobby of penpaling. I was supposed to have only three, but now I have *ahem* seven.

Having a penpal (or more) Is an amazing way to make new friends and meet new people and learn about others lifestyles and cultures. Penpaling is also great for people that want to disconnect from online and go back to paper. Plus if you have really generous penpals you might even get goodies. (my favorite part) But don’t get your hopes up xD

So in today’s post, I will share with you guys a few things you can send to your penpals!

If you are looking for a penpal and have nowhere to look you can go to this awesome (and safe website) called globalpenfriends. Or you can comment down below that your interested and maybe someone else will reply and ask to be your penpal.

For right now I am closed for new penpals because I already have way tooo many. But I am open to being e-pals if you want.

But now, let’s get on to the post.

The first and most basic thing to put in your penpal letter is a letter.

Even if you only send a letter, you can jazz it up and make it cute and super special! Doodle, add quotes and use fancy fonts!

2. Send washi tape.

Washi tape is cute and adorable, and if your penpal is a crafty artsy person I am sure they would appreciate some. You can wrap it around a stick, tag or piece of paper.

3. Art

Art pieces are really cute and simple. Draw something your penpal loves like ducks or sunflowers.

4. Scraps

When it comes to penpaling, sending cute scraps of paper or extra washi and stuff Is great! You can use scraps to make collages and if your penpal is creative they will probably find a way to use it.

5. Candy, Tea, Snacks

Packaged objects like tea and candy are great and fun to send to your penpal. I always send my penpals tea bags so they can drink it while reading my letters!

6. envelope art

Envelopes can be transformed into beautiful masterpieces. I try and usually fail, but there are some really pretty things you can do!

7. Things your pen pals have mentioned

Has your penpal mentioned that they wanted pins? Maybe you can make one for them. Make thinks based on your penpals personality or things they like and want.

 

I hope this post helped! Thanks for reading!

So I didn’t really realize that Elysian Artiste has reached 212 followers! I MEAN WHAT?!?! It means so much! Blogging has been a great experience❤❤ Thank you all so much!

Now I have some other updates about a schedule- a blogging schedule! I really need to start planning when to post because I sometimes can get really distracted. really. So I have decided to post twice a week on Tuesdays and maybe Fridays or Saturdays. 

Tuesdays will be more bookish or focusing on a book or book tag, recent reads or some bookish thing.📖

this is very small but I hope you all enjoy!

My little sister just lost her first tooth so I did a little photo-shoot with her!

ISN’T SHE SO CUTE !

So I recently got back into my wreck this journal! It is really soothing, especially since I strive to make my art look perfect. I really recommend it if your someone who always wants to be perfect, it really loosens your creativity and is relaxing. Here are some pages I have finished.

some of them are a little messy but I had so much fun making them! I am hopefully going to make a WTJ post filled with tips and cool ideas!

also guys its snowing!

🎈my 13 birthday🎈

fall hello

Welcome to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web!

Some of you might know that yesterday was my birthday! This year for my 13 birthday my mom hosted a cute little party! It was so much fun and I loved it! I hadn’t had friends over to my house in a really long time so I was really excited. I also hadn’t had a birthday party in a while!

We started the party off with a little edible necklace bar! We made our own edible necklaces and chatted for a while.

Then we decorated journals with stickers, paper, and washi tape!

Here is how mine turned out! IMG_3333.JPG

Isn’t it cute! I had so much fun with my friends and I am so grateful that my parents let me have a little party!The party took a lot of work but in the end, it turned out amazing!
