I think I may have a new pen pal

M— has received a pack of my Nib & Tuck cards for Mother’s Day from her daughter two years in a row. She is a self-proclaimed stationery-o-phile, like myself. She was sweet enough to write me a note that included the following: “I cannot walk by a Hastinote without wanting to own it.” I hear that!

I feel like M— and I are kindred spirits, sharing this love of snail mail and greeting cards.  I’m looking forward to hearing more about her life on the prairies and sharing news of the we(s)t coast with her. Check out the colourful card she sent. Perfect for summer which we are cusping on, at long last.
