Where does the time go? Afternoon already, and I started this post this morning. Of course now the washing is out and the cats are happily sleeping at my feet, the sun has finally shown it’s face, it was dull in Melbourne this morning.
I don’t think I have ever met anyone who doesn’t enjoy receiving a card or letter from a friend. And although recently Australia Post increased their postage costs quite significantly, I decided to increase my snail mail efforts by joining an incentive started by the lovely Shannon West from the Stampin’ UP! Head Offices in Utah called “I’m Bringing birthdays back.”
By joining, I have agreed to send MORE birthday cards than ever before, I really like this challenge. In fact I like it so much that I am not only sending cards for birthdays I am sending cards for any old reason at all, sometimes for no reason at all.
I have been collecting ideas for decorating envelopes on a board I call ‘Snail Mail’ on https://www.pinterest.com/createwithbarb/ who knew there were so many fabulous ideas out there. I fully intend to use some of these ideas in the future. Just imagine receiving something gorgeous in your mailbox, I think I would swoon.
So can I encourage you to send more birthday cards? Think of the pleasure it brings to the recipient. And decorate your envelope too, I sometimes use Washi Tape to decorate mine, simple, quick and easy.
Baby Card ready to go this week.
Have a joyful and creative day people.
