So i have been totally crazed with writting good old fashion letters, i was talking to some friends about how awesome it would be to receive random letters on different topics a kind of pen/pal system was discussed....we all agreed it would be cool but we are all so lazy/busy that finding the time is really hard. so i thought i would kick start the process and write this letter!
 Cheesy
I was studying up on modernism at the time and so the letter is written by a very snooty sounding lady at the time of Wilberforce and Charles Darwin (when his theory of evolution was first put forth!) she is very condeming of darwin and the fact that he married his cousin emily! hehehehe

i mailed it this week and have yet to hear from her so i assume that it will arrive early next week!

on to the letter porn!


front of the envelope - i ended up putting the whole thing into another envelope so the ribbon wouldn't get destroyed on the way.


the contents of the letter laid out for your viewing pleasure  Shocked




images attached to mini letter - ranging from apes to man to modern day stereotypes of women


close up of the images


bits and pieces illustrations i have done, small envelopes with patterns i designed and words of inspiration on the back


sealed with a wax cameo

what do u think?

a link to my other letter

This is such a good idea! My best friend and I tried to start something like this ages ago when she moved away, but it never really happened...but this inspires me to give it another try!!
