Letters from a friend

My bag
In a bag that mom has sewed specially for me I took this pile of letters back to the one who wrote them…

Letters from a friend
Project #1. Find your old letters
I’ve ticked of number on in Yamaguchi’s book 52 Projects: Gather up all of the letters that one of your oldest friends has sent to you over the years. I didn’t photocopy them, as Yamaguchi suggested, because my friend wrote page after page and to copy them all would take for ever. And half the feeling is there in the different colours of ball pen’s she has used, and the different papers and how they feel… I found them in the attic and borrowed the pile back to her. She was thrilled, and very thankfull.

But before I gave them back I read the pile, and that was the best part. Reading about her life back then reminded me of my own life ten years ago. Reading the questions she sent me made me smile. And the heavyness of the pile, wich is not even half of all the letters I have recived, felt so nice. I remembered our friendship in the best of ways.

    this is such a beautiful idea! One of my friends from high school and I wrote letters and letters and letters–I still have most of them.

    I love the artistic ideas in your blog. Keep it up!

    A great idea~ I’m inspired to do the same – think I still have a lot of old letters from one of my dearest friends, and I think she’d be thrilled to “borrow them back” for a while. Maybe I’ll even sew her a bag for them to go in, that she can keep :)
    Du ?r b?st som delar med dig s? mycket inspirerande!

    Jeg har ogs? mange brev fra venninner, spesielt ei som jeg skrev masse med. Det er morsomt ? finne igjen de gamle brevene. Lurt ? la henne f? de. Det er artig ? se hva man har skrevet for lenge siden.
