A letter from a new-found friend and a feature

Not long after I started this blog, April commented on one of my posts and suggested that we exchange letters. So, an e-mail or two back and forth, and my letter was on its way to California.

Last week, I received my first letter from April, along with a photo of their family and a very special gift of some very beautiful earrings (see the photo). April told me a little about her life and family. She has a couple of blogs, Double Happiness and Secondsister Suaviloquy. She also has an Etsy site where she sells her beautiful jewelry, SecondSister. Be sure to stop by her blogs and her shop!

Another blogger favorite of mine, Tameka at Tea and Honey Bread and The Buzz has posted a feature on this 365 Letters blog on The Buzz. If you'll look through her archives, you can read profiles on many other artists, too! This month she also posted a collection of her favorites from Etsy in honor of Black History Month -- it's a wonderful selection! Be sure to visit her Etsy shop, Pretty in Peace, too.

What a cool project! Look at all the friends you'll make! I like the idea of bringing back "old-fashioned" letter writing. E-mail, while its convienient, is too impersonal!! Let's bring back the handwritten love!!!!

Congratulations, what beautiful earrings! And, thanks for mentioning my blogs and shop. I'd be willing to do a letter exchange if you can fit me in, that would be awesome!

What a sweet gift! Love your blog and this very cool project. I am SO letter writing challenged! Good for you! (not that I can't write, just that I forget!)

Congrats on winning my giveaway! I have emailed you!

Your letter challenge sounds like fun. If you ever need a penpal let me know and I'm in!

I'm impressed. I found your blog a few days ago and since then have been waxing poetic to a friend of mine who I met through her blog about how I wish I could find a way to get a penpal. But apparently all I have to do is ask other bloggers! (That same friend and I are beginning to exchange letters too, being inspired as we are and all.) I love how blogging opens you up to new people, but real, old-fashioned tangible objects in the mail really cement these friendships for us. So great. :)
