Thanks to this Secret Penpal Scavenger Hunt, I have a new pen pal that could very well help me step up my creativity in regards to mail art.
The hardest part was waiting. I was so excited to open it up, I couldn’t even wait til the next day to get good lighting for the shots, so my photos are all “moody,” i.e. at night.My pen pal’s name is Katzi, she lives in Georgia, and she seems majorly rad. She is incredibly clever, patient, and sent me the coolest pen pal package ever.
One of my favorite elements, besides the Bettie Page!, was her flash drive. She works in audio/visual stuff, so she sent me something I can plug into my computer and see her town and her life, almost through her eyes. Very cool.
She sent me a mini writing kit, goodies from her favorite coffee shops/restaurants around town, and little crafts she used to make. As a bonus, she saw the “My Home Bar” series on my site, and sent along some Prohibition-era cocktail recipes, and I just about swooned! Many of them I haven’t tried yet, so I gotta grab a new bottle of gin and get my flapper dress out!
