Ilona/Missive Maven was one of my first full-time pen pals a few years ago when I first started writing to people I knew online. Her letters are beautifully written in fountain pen, are full to the brim and have a lovely flow to them. They're a real pleasure to read and I am so grateful each time she sends me one. I have owed her a proper letter for a long time. I made this envelope to send a letter to her in so long ago that I had written my old address in the corner (I moved 6 months ago!).

Letter writing used to be a big part of my life and I would like to start writing letters again. I know that I can't write like I did a few years ago (hundreds!) or I'll burn myself out in no time, but there are a couple of people I've been meaning to keep in better contact with. Next month I am going to see if I can write a couple more letters.
