For over a decade, Codi has had a deep affinity for letter-writing. What began at the age of fourteen as a way of making and maintaining friendships turned into thousands of letters that have been sent and received to-and-from her name; hundreds of stories shared; a world-wide letter-writing project, and a cherished routine.
More so than blogging or journaling, these letters have been her primary means of sharing her experiences and stories. Scattered around the world, people have envelopes containing bits and pieces of her story bundled in twine and stored away in labeled shoeboxes tucked underneath the bed and in drawers of memorabilia.
She's built beautiful relationships from these letters. They've harbored solace and a space for curiosity. They've grown friendships and have given opportunities for reflection. They've, on a few occasions, saved her life by offering reason, connection, and love when she felt it no where else. She's driven cross-country to meet her pen-pals, has slept on their couches, and has invited them into her home.
RECEIVE A LETTER
All of Codi's letters are sent with stationery from a small boutique in Sacramento, unique stamps, and are all written by hand.
During check-out, please feel free to tell her a little bit about yourself and she will try to send something personalized to you.
WHAT IS AU?
Artifact Uprising, which is where I will get all prints from. In these letters, you will be receiving one of the Everyday Prints. For exact specifications, you can read about the product here. I will select and choose an image randomly. If you'd like a print of a specific image of mine or of a specific size, please inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org for a custom order.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN A CARE-PACKAGE?
No two care-packages will be the same. A letter and a photograph will be a standard, but I will also include miscellaneous and varied items such as drawings, coffee beans from my favorite coffeeshop, recent collaborative products, etc.
WILL YOU SHARE MY ADDRESS AT ALL?
No, not at all. I do and will respect your privacy completely.
CAN I WRITE YOU BACK?
Of course. I am currently working on getting a post office box in my new home-city, so in the meanwhile, you may inquire via email at email@example.com for an address.
WHAT WILL YOU WRITE ABOUT?
It will vary completely. I may tell you a story, share an experience, a dream, a thought or idea with you. If you'd like something a little more personalized, please feel free to tell me about yourself during checkout, or what you'd like to hear about. For example, you may prompt a question such as, "what inspires you?" and I can write you about inspiration, give you things to read and listen to, etc.
