My Most Recent Addiction

I obsess. I move from obsession to obsession. Recently I discovered a hobby that hits upon so many of my sensibilities: the pocket letter.

Pocket letters appeal to the following aspects of me:

  • I like to make Artist Trading Cards (ATCs).
  • I like to share "happy mail" with those I trade with.
  • I like organization (despite what my house--and in particular, my craft room--looks like).
  • I like to meet new people and to "travel" by corresponding.

There will come a day when I feel just "eh" about pocket letters, but for now it's full steam ahead. So far I've collected and sent around 40. There are dozens of swaps already arranged for the immediate future.
