Day 96 – Never too many thank you cards

Yet another “thank you” card being dropped in the mail today. I think people forget just how important it is to let people know that you appreciate them. Buy a pack of cheap thank you cards and send them to people that matter to you 😊

Also, I’m closing in on 100 pieces of mail sent. What should I do for number 100?

Day 95 – Pink Hedgehog


While digging in my desk today, I found a few more of these pink hedgehog cards. I have no idea how I ended up with these, really, since I hate the color pink and I’ve never even seen a hedgehog in person… But either way, they’re really cute!

This one is headed to a friend that I’ve known for over 20 years. She recently moved from our hometown near Kansas City and moved to Oklahoma, not far from where I was born. The world is a funny place.

Day 94 – Snail Mail Fan Mail

It’s been a little while since I’ve done a Fan Mail Friday, so here goes! This little card is headed to the folks at Snailmailcool, a snail mail themed Facebook page. They recently celebrated their one year anniversary, and sent out some celebratory packs as gifts to some followers. I got one, which included a few cute stickers, some really cute snail postcards, and a note card. I look forward to using all of it!

The Vintage Email stamp comes from Vanness, my local pen shop/part time job, and the Good Mail stamp is from The Well Appointed Desk. I have no idea where the little sparkly heart sticker came from, but I kinda enjoy them, despite being the least girly human on the planet.

Day 93 – Making Friends


It’s amazing how close you can get to a person over only a few letters. Last time I wrote to this penpal, I ended up writing about politics, religion, the culture of the area I live in… things I usually wouldn’t broach in a letter. He wrote back a very thoughtful reply, so I’m sending him one in return. What a nice guy.

Day 92 – Random Acts of (Birthday) Cards


This pretty little card is headed to a Random Acts of Cards user in Washington. They’d requested birthday cards, because they – like most of us – don’t get enough snail mail. I was more than happy to help 🙂

I took yesterday off because of the holiday, and today is a little late, but it still works!

Day 91 – Finally, a Proper Letter


I realized that I’ve been copping out a lot lately and sending a bunch of cards and postcards (which still count!) so I thought I’d send an actual letter for a change. This one was four pages, front and back, headed to one of my penpals in Colorado. I got to use all of my inked up pens, which is always fun! I love all of the different colors and variety between all of the pens I love.

Day 90 – New Penpal, Same Silly Drawing


I’ve started including this silly drawing on almost every letter I send out. I don’t know why, guess I just find it amusing. This letter is to a new penpal, Alexa. It’s always kinda fun to write to a new person. I guess I just enjoy trying to describe myself via snail mail. It’s a challenge, for sure.

What do you talk about in intro letters?
