A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.

I got a surprise in the mail a couple of days ago, a wayward Christmas card from the amazingly talented Ren. I'd heard from friends and etsy sellers that international shipping was especially slow this past Christmas season, so I guess it's no wonder it took a while for this little guy to travel all the way from Singapore! Ren made the entire card by hand with her own drawings, and it's so cute I had to share it with you guys.

How awesome is the pop-up message inside?

Ren has just arrived in LA for a six-month-long internship. [Ren, if you are reading this, good luck!!!]

To see more of Ren's work, check out her portfolio here.
