Have you heard of the Postal Society? It just opened its doors this month and is described by its founders as a place to "meet like-minded creative postal freaks, who share your love for the old fashioned correspondence system." Sounds right up my alley! You can become a member for free, and gain access to mail swaps, challenges, forums, and more. A premium membership is also available and will get you some extra goodies. If you're a fan of mail art and perhaps looking for a pen pal or two, be sure to sign up for the Postal Society right here.
My favorite part of sending letters is picking out the perfect stamps, usually a collection of new and old postage. The US Post Office has a bunch of awesome stamps out right now or coming soon. Here are my favorites:
Which are your favorite? I think I'm partial to the Vintage Seed Packet stamps.
