Pen Paling Ideas For Staying Connected During Quarantine

Hey guys! My last pen pal ideas post was super popular, and so I decided to write another one, specifically filled with ideas on ways to stay connected with friends and family during quarantine. I also noticed a lot of you saying that you would like to have a pen pal, but didn’t know how/where to find one, so I’ll give you a few hints and ideas there too. If you’re looking for some fun ways to stay connected (other than FaceTime) here you go!

Pen-Paling 101 (envelope art, add-in ideas & more)

Hey guys! One of my favorite hobbies is decorating envelopes and sending letters to my pen-pals. It honestly doesn’t have to be old-fashioned and it can be super fun to write/send letters. I love going with a BUJO aesthetic for my letters, I usually actually use BUJO paper for writing my letters and I’ll usually write with colored fine-point markers. I also love doing themed letters, for example I’ll do a “coffee” theme or a “scrunchie” theme, etc.

This is also a great boredom buster and a fun & creative way to use up some time, since I think we’re all pretty much stuck in our houses. Heh.
