From there I answered penpal club ads in teen magazines, as well as penpal ads in teen and music magazines. Picked up a couple of overseas penpals, learned of new ways to meet more penpals, etc...
Because I write a lot of letters, I have a natural interest in all the things which go along with letter writing: pens, makers, highlighters, fasteners, cards, stickers, and, of course, really cute paper to write on!
One of my wonderful penpals, Kana, (who is originally from Japan but is now living in California with her American husband) is a great artist and designer. She's opened shop on Etsy.com selling her adorable, and totally original kawaii stationery! Her stuff is seriously cute and very reasonably priced. I've just ordered some myself and can't wait to get it!! I know from the samples I've seen, though, I won't be disappointed!
Please pay her a visit!
