August Pocket Letter

 I am having way too much fun creating and mailing out Pocket Letters.  I have decided to have just one Pocket Letter Pal that I can communicate with on a monthly basis.  
My Pen Pal's name is Larissa from Germany, and this is my first PL sent to her.  Larissa received it yesterday.  Our theme for our very first PL to each other is "Where we live".  I created 9 ATC's about MN.
 This is the back of the PL with all of the required elements: tea, About Me, Questions tag, quote, ...
I crochet the red and yellow flowers, and also added a tiny crochet heart to the tiny paperclip.  I included the following goodies as well: American coins, washi tape, tags, embellished paperclips, stickers, ephemera, a glass heart magnet, blue sequins, a Peanuts comic strip (Charles Schultz = Minnesotan), and her initial and ...
...and most importantly included was my handwritten letter.
Some little extras in a pocket.
I was so happy and relieved to know that Larissa received it in less than a week.  I had read so many negative stories about international mailing, that I really didn't think this PL would get to Larissa; but not to fear...the US Postal Service to the rescue...even though the postal sales lady was a little grumpy...LOL!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!
