Letter from an artist, with mascot
This fantastic letter, from a new correspondent I met through the Fountain Pen Network (FPN), was so full of interesting beauty that I'm going to have to feature a bunch of photos.
What you see above is what met me when I pulled the letter out of the envelope - sealing wax INSIDE the letter (with her cute note that she doesn't have a seal yet -- but she's got the wax), on the fold, with a beautiful hand-drawn border.
Then there was this fantastic artwork inside:
Wow! What a detailed and interesting character! My photo, taken in light far too low, doesn't do this justice. There were also all sorts of little spider doodles, which I tried to photograph, but just didn't come out.
The envelope featured a fun Nemo sticker (I don't think it's dumb! though I've still yet to see the movie) on the back.
On the front, her return address label had this really quirky-cute witch-cat on broomstick with bat. This one made my day for sure! Oh, and I should mention that it was a really great letter, too. Coming soon, photos of the letter I back sent to her.
