Letter Art

I once had pen pals in my childhood:  my aunt in the Philippines and a fellow pre-teen in Australia, who was into clothes, fashion and makeup, which I wasn't so much into.  However, I do love the art of correspondence, literally.  I'll be starting an intro drawing and painting class next week and want to gussy up letters.  My geographically close friends may be into receiving handwritten notes, but they don't reciprocate.  I get it.  They're busy.  It's easier to email or post on Facebook or text message (which I wouldn't receive because I refuse to have a cell phone).  Hence, I signed up for and already scrawled three letters--one each for women in Maryland, Indiana, and the United Kingdom yesterday.  I used cute fold + mail stationery, but am ready to take it to the next level.  I remembered that I had Carolee Gilligan Wheeler as an instructor for a day book at the San Francisco Center for the Book--Google it because they've some wonderful classes.  Above is the book that she mentioned in her class.
