lina's letters

i've been getting back into letter writing lately :) i have a hashtag on instagram - #linasletters
i believe i have about fifteen penpals at the moment & it can be overwhelming at times, but i love it anyways! i love all of the stationary, making my envelopes, deciding how i will decorate each letter from the outside-in, gathering items to send with the letter, & more. i have even bought a postage scale to weigh my letters! i am not sure i write the best letters, but it's something that i love & i'm going to keep doing it. i am always looking for new stationary. what is your favorite place or company to get stationary from?

terrarium making

this christmas, i decided to make terrariums for all of my close friends. it was such an adventure & so much fun. i got a pack of 100 tiny train model people for $12 on amazon, tiny succulents from home depot, & lots & lots of glass containers from thrift stores for $1 each, & put it all together. i thought they turned out pretty great :)

i am so into terrariums now haha. i was even tempted to take some furry moss & lichen home with me when i visited the redwoods recently at a state park. i didn't, but i really wanted to...!
i'm pretty sure the next zine i make will be on terrariums. stay tuned!
