A few days ago, I stumbled upon The Love Parcel. The idea is that you make some kind of mini package filled with anything you want- many have vintage trinkets, artwork, or handwritten notes. Then you send it to Miranda, the creator of the project, and she uses a combination of her own creations and other people’s packages to send you a response!
I’m a sucker for snail mail.
This was a great excuse to try whatever artsy things I wanted and to make things that didn’t have a purpose except to be beautiful. I painted and drew and sewed and crocheted and found vintage treasures, which were all perfect things to do over winter break, when it’s too cold to do anything outside.
At least for me, the cherry on top of this whole thing is the positivity and creativity that The Love Parcel promotes. Gives me warm fuzzies to look at the pictures that are posted of packages from people all over the world.
